Who: Audra Senkus and Gabrielle Ophals, owners of Eve Salon
Where: 55 West 8th Street (near 6th Avenue) New York, NY
When: Every Monday through the summer
Why: Watermelon just screams summer, right? I can remember numerous Sunday picnics with my family involving the huge green fruit. After feasting on cold cuts and potato chips, my father would pull the watermelon out of the cooler and begin to serve us. Seconds later, we were enjoying that ripe taste of summer, cool juice running down our chins and smiles on our faces. Of course, this summer I am staying in New York City meaning no family picnics and no watermelon….
Or so I thought! I was wrong. Eve Salon offers a big dose of nostalgia with their new seasonal watermelon pedicure. Perfect for those wintered out toes, this new pedicure scrubs away the colder months in true summer style. Get ready for 45 minutes of watermelon themed bliss. Sweet smelling watermelon oil infused scrub, rich watermelon moisturizing cream, and a line of fun summer nail colors awaits you in this peaceful, well-staffed West Village salon. As a bonus, every Monday in June, Eve offers free watermelon martinis with the watermelon pedicure. TDO editor Carolyn tested one of these summery drinks out and said it tasted just like fruit punch!
I would recommend Eve’s watermelon pedi to anyone looking for a lovely way to ring in summer in a calm and relaxing environment. The watermelon pedicure gives your feet a lasting rejuvenation while hitting on a note of summers past. Check out Eve’s Plum line of Watermelon products, too. The toner has your face feeling refreshed and body butter gets rid of those rough patches. Watermelon may scream summer but then again so do sexy toes. Head to Eve’s to experience both!
