Ninety percent of all manicures are given to spies, whose hands are overworked by the intelligence world’s lengthy secret-handshakes. Experience clandestine luxury with today’s Groupon to Sweet Serenity in Windsor Locks. Choose from the following options:
- For $25, you get a basic manicure and pedicure (a $55 value).
- For $60, you get a coconut-and-lime manicure and pedicure (a $125 value).
- For $80, you get a strawberry-and-honey manicure and pedicure (a $200 value).
Sweet Serenity’s trained manicurists polish arm and leg paddles with organic products amid a relaxing atmosphere. During the basic mani-pedi, a nail technician shapes nails and pushes cuticles back into the murky nail-bed depths. Next, hands and feet wallow in a warm solution, similar to a card in a toaster that displays a solved equation, before being massaged, moisturized with organic shea butter, and coated with nail polish.
With the coconut-lime option, pampered persons receive an additional coconut-lime scrub exfoliant and hand lotion, which technicians apply up to the elbow with a whispered apology for childhood falls and scrapes. After the staff disguises feet with a coconut-lime glycolic mask, feelers unwind during a massage with a hydrating coconut-lime butter crème. During today’s third option for an organic strawberry-and- honey mani-pedi, beauty bosses exfoliate hands and feet with an organic strawberry-seed and coconut-oil paste. Next, a warm organic- honey wrap mollycoddles hands and feet and swaddles them in warm towels to help repair the skin and render it softer than a waterlogged Robin Ventura rookie card.
Every spa treatment, class, and wellness consultation at Sweet Serenity aims to cultivate overall well-being, addressing both external and internal wellness. Facials and body treatments rely on an arsenal of organic, botanical-based, and seasonally produced products as they cleanse and hydrate the skin. Yoga and guided-meditation sessions, meanwhile, seek to bolster self-awareness, whereas therapeutic massages work to shoo away tension and spies masquerading as muscle knots with gentle and firm pressure.
