Chocolate, almonds, and cocoa powder sound like the makings of a decadent treat. And also a pedicure.  Oh, yes: the hot chocolate pedicure is here. Maria Bonita Salon, located in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, is offering an indulgent hot chocolate pedi. First, you soak your tootsies in cocoa, almond oils, and Dead Sea salts. Next your dead skin is sloughed off with a chocolate and almond exfoliating scrub. Then your feet are massaged with a combination of chocolate, almond oil, and vitamin E, topped off with a hot chocolate paraffin infusion. Unlike the hot chocolate at your local coffee shop which shouldn’t cost more than $3, the hot chocolate pedicure will set you back a whopping $40. While it’s decadent to be sure, it sounds like a misuse of perfectly good hot cocoa to me.  [Maria Bonita Salon] [Image of hot chocolate via Shutterstock]

New Pedicure Trend: Dip Your Feet In Acid!

OK, really, what’s next? Gone are the days of simple soaks, it seems. We already have fish eating the dead skin off of our feet, but now those seeking soft tootsies are resorting to acid in order to slough off the rough edges. Those desperate for baby soft heels are making appointments at Neville’s in Belgravia, West London, where you’ll find acid is the treatment of choice. After a normal pedicure, the lovely lady (or gent) servicing your toes will apply strips soaked in an unspecified acid to the bottom of your feet and let you soak. Twenty minutes later you’re finished, and apparently you’ll leave with baby soft toes. We’ll have to assume this is just a strong version of alpha-hydroxy or some other cosmetic-approved substance, not, say, what the Joker got dipped in. But it must be extra “special,” since the procedure costs about $137, which is quite pricey for that kind of torture. I’ll pick up a pumice and pay attention to my feet in the shower, thanks.
