There must be some link between sinking stocks and the need
for pampering - new salons and spas are popping up all over.
Sweet Lily (222 West Broadway: 212-925-5441) which opened
this month, offers only natural manicures - no acrylics and
formaldehyde free polish (along with the traditional Essie
colors). There's a honey -walnut pedicure which starts with
a warm milk and almond oil soak, followed up with a mask containing
walnuts ground on the premises. There's also a cooling and
soothing fresh cucumber and pepper mint pedicure and a hot
lavender manicure, which uses a lavender scented sugar exfoliant.
