"Living Beauty: The Purist"
In Downtown Manhattan sits an oasis, the year-old Sweet
Lily, Donna Perillo's cozy nail salon that embodies her holistic
and healthy approach to life. With Fresh Flowers and warm
lighting, the salon feels just like a living room. Clients
perch for their pedicures in overstuffed comfy armchairs,
dangling their toes into enameled, antique style tubs filled
with peppermint oil and slices of apple or grapefruit. "I
want customers to feel at home - and a home doesn't smell
like acrylic," says Perillo. Except for the polishes
and polish removers, all of the products used at Sweet Lily,
like the non abrasive sugar scrubs with essential oils, contain
natural ingredients and are made on-site.
