A Delightful Experience at Serenity Nail Salon and Spa
Every Mom deserves some pampering and time to themselves!! I have found the deluxe boutique spa that will help you de-stress and feel refreshed because you deserve it! Serenity is a new boutique nail salon and spa (they opened in November 2019) and is located on Green Road, right next to Green Road Liquor (more on that later) and right across from Heinen’s.
Serenity offers an array of services sure to make you feel like you did before you had kids! They offer: Manicures, Pedicures, Gel Manicures, Dip Powder Manicures, Facials, Waxing and Eyelash Extensions for men and women. They also love to spoil the kids that come into their spa and make them feel super special and like a Queen/King, so if you are looking for a fun date with your child, look no further!! And this isn’t your run of the mill, get you out as fast as possible Nail Salon and Spa. It’s a truly pampered experience (and may I say addicting because they treat you like royalty and make sure you enjoy every second of your spa experience! I can’t wait to go back)!
Let me start off by saying, the owners, Christine and Bobby spared no expense opening their spa! Everything is pristine and they even installed a state of the art ventilation system, so there are no fumes or smells from the products!! And speaking of the products, they only use to best of the best and 85% of the products they use in the spa are organic! I even spied some that were cruelty free and vegan!
For my feet, I choose the Serenity Pedicure! With this pedicure, you can choose from 4-step treatment that comes in a variety of scents!! Of course, being a chocoholic, I choose the chocolate treatment! The first step in a relaxing foot soak/bath with the sea salt chocolate soak. It smelled heavenly and was a great way to begin to relax!
After getting scraped, shaped and soaked, came the 100% sugar scrub. Did you know that most scrubs in spa’s and salon’s use sand in their scrubs? They can lead to irritation on sensitive skin. Sugar is more gentle and all natural! This process came with a wonderful leg and foot massage as well. When the scrub came off, the difference was unbelievable!! Not only could I see a huge difference, but I felt one too!! But the pampering didn’t end there!!
Next came a chocolate mask that helps hydrate your skin, followed by warm towels. I never wanted this to end!!
The last step was a cocoa butter massage!! Followed by the color of my choice on my nails.
The whole process took about an hour, which I can’t remember the last time I had a pedicure that was longer than 25-30 minutes. It was a very unique experience in the fact that the pedicure took so long and wasn’t rushed. And the 4 step system is deliciously decadent. Every step was better than before and everything is included in the price!! I never had to worry about being up-charged or rushing out so the next person could sit down. And as a Mom, that feeling of being able to truly relax and not have to worry about rushing around is worth more than anything!!!
Now I have baby soft feet and legs and beautifully painted nails! And I’m one relaxed Mom!
My manicure was similar to the pedicure, but I decided to choose their brand new anti-aging system that’s made out of wine (hello…this is my mother ship…chocolate and wine!) and is made in Napa Valley, CA! The Anti-Aging Vino System is actually a 5-step and you can get this as a manicure or a pedicure! The extra step is an anti-aging serum that is put on last!!
In my opinion, the star of this treatment is the mask. They massaged it onto my hands and arms and let it dry (about 10ish minutes). When I washed it off, my skin was radiating and was amazingly soft. My coloring went from blotchy to even skin tone. And the treatment wasn’t even finished!! After another wonderful vino massage and exquisitely painted nails, the serum was applied. WOW!!
Again, my skin felt baby soft and I smelled like wine and chocolate, so I was extremely happy!! I did notice a huge difference in my skin tone with the vino anti-aging treatment. This is not a miracle 1 treatment only kind of thing. It’s proven to fade age spots and other discolorations after continued use!! So, this is something I plan on getting more often. Again, the manicure took about an hour, which again, I find unique and VERY welcoming!!
I love that this nail salon and spa is so conveniently located. And more importantly, I love that their main objective is to take care of you, not only to pamper you, but to bring you high quality salon products, a innovative ventilation system, super clean spa and salon, and a relaxing and fun environment so that you can really feel like a human again who doesn’t have spit-up on their shirt and dry shampoo in their hair (for the past 3 days).
