Looking for a spa pedicure experience on limited budget? For $25, you can get an hour-long spa pedicure at Jean Madeline Institute, a school for beauticians-in-training. The pedi is performed by supervised students and includes an exfoliation, foot massage, and peppermint foot masque with Aveda products. [Jean Madeline]
