Wax Spotlight: Orchid Top Line by Italwax

Our most popular wax brand – Italwax – just released their newest addition to the Top Line wax selection: Orchid Wax!

Orchid Top Line Wax is a thin consistency wax that becomes completely transparent when melted. It is enriched with a gentle and pleasant Orchid fragrance.

Made for your most discerning and sensitive clients, this wax is free of Titanium-Dioxide as well as natural pine resins. Instead, it is formulated as a premium-level synthetic polymer wax (SP Wax) and is intended to be used for hair removal on delicate areas (bikini, face, armpits).

As is the other waxes in Italwax’s Top Line, Orchid wax is a low-temperature wax (100.4° F). It is an extra flexible formulation that does not create stretchy threads. Although gentle on the skin, Orchid wax is appropriate for removal whatever the hair coarseness and length. The best part? This is a multi-directional wax, which means you can apply this wax without regarding the hair growth direction, and it performs just as well no matter what direction you apply in!

Advantages of Synthetic ItalWax Film Wax:

  • Lower melting temperature 100°F.
  • Ideal for hair removal on delicate areas (armpits, bikini, face).
  • Longer cooling time, which provides longer thermal exposure, relaxes hair follicles and makes waxing less painful.
  • Completely adjustable to the skin surface, catching all the hairs without applications repeating.
  • Because of it9s extra elasticity Synthetic Film Wax won’t break during hair removal.
  • When removed, Synthetic Film Wax does not leave any broken hairs.
  • Significantly reduces the time required for depilation procedure.

CND Shellac 14 day Manicures = Profits For Salons & Bliss for Customers – Review by Rebeca

Shellac is like any salon polish application, the Shellac system features a Base Coat, Color Coat and Top Coat. Together with a UV Lamp, the system comprises a breakthrough in resilient color that remains flawless for two weeks and removes in 10 minutes. This has to be the most revolutionary offering for natural nail customers! Many want to know what the difference is between Shellac and gel manicures. Well, the Shellac gel hybrid does not require as much prep work to the nail… the process is just like a natural nail manicure with the exception of a UV cure with each coat. Shellac also soaks off quicker that other nail services.

What does this mean for Salons? IMO — Shellac is a Gold Mine! Imagine being able to offer clients a nail polish that doesn’t smudge, peel, dent, knick, or even chip for 14 days! When I asked some local nail salon patrons how they would feel about being offered this type of service, their responses were frenzied. They did not even inquire about the price, they just wanted to know what salon has it and how fast they could get there… they all became possessed with excitement! This is a VERY desirable service, and CND has done a great job of getting press and media to deliver the news to consumers; “the 14 day manicure is here”. I am confident most women will find a Shellac manicure a staple service before vacations, holidays, meetings, weddings, reunions or any event in which they don’t want to worry about touching up their polish. I am personally looking forward to traveling WITHOUT a big bag of leaky nail polishes and remover (that ALWAYS leaks all over my suitcase). This used to be unavoidable, because Pre-Shellac, my manis & pedis never stayed in tact for any trip over 2 days!

About my Shellac French Manicure:
My CND Shellac French manicure was done with 2 colors, Negligee (a transparent pink with a very subtle iridescent) and Cream Puff (the opaque white used for the tips). Now, I have to admit that I was a bit bummed at how clear the Negligee appeared. I have on 2 coats in this photo. A white on white manicure is my preferred choice (1 coat Essie Waltz and 1 coat Essie Marshmallow was my signature). For now, there is a limited color selection currently available from CND Shellac (with more coming out in November 2010), so Negligee was my only option… though I think Shellac Romantique might make for a good alternative to give more opacity, (I will try next time).

Retail — Really — YOU need to retail CND Solar Oil!
So far, on day two of my Shellac French Manicure, I have no nicks, chips or scratches. Just INSANELY shiny and healthy natural nails! A VERY important step to keeping the Shellac manicure looking great, is to have your clients apply Solar Oil every day! Solar Oil contains a luxe blend of natural Rice Bran oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E Oil and Sweet Almond oil to help restore and repair nails and cuticles for a healthy looking manicure. In addition, the act of massaging Solar Oil into the nails daily actually stimulates nail growth while the natural oils condition brittle nails and cuticles. Every time Solar Oil is applied, it totally revives the beauty of any manicure! This is a great way to make sure your clients LOVE their manicure up to day 14 and it helps them nurture their natural nails. Click me to see the Solar Oil Retail Display.

Another great marketing benefit of CND Shellac it that there is absolutely no damage done to the natural nail. Shellac is also 3 Free. It is free of formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. I like to call Shellac “The Kind Manicure“; your nail bed does not need to be mutilated with a nail file or drill at anytime. No glues, bonds, primers or offensive smelling fluids are needed. CND Shellac polishes go on just like regular nail polishes, so there is no damage to your precious, natural nail.

Rev up your business and try the CND Shellac Starter Kit today! People WILL be calling your salon about it. Don’t be left out of the Shellac Revolution!

June Jacobs- Helping to Combat Premature Aging!

The team at Pure Spa Direct is constantly searching to find innovative products that will deliver exceptional results to our clients and maximize your success. We feel we have accomplished great things by bringing you the best, with the recently added June Jacobs Spa Collection!

Recently, I have been fortunate enough to try a couple of products from the June Jacobs line. The Cellular Collagen Eye Serum is a miracle product! I am in my late 209s and I am showing signs of premature aging. The most effected areas are my eyes and lips. I have been using the eye serum regularly for one week now, and already have noticeable differences to the fine lines around my eye area. When you apply it, you instantly feel it working. It tingles a little bit letting you know it is doing its job to plump out the wrinkles. I love all the natural ingredients in the formula, and that its paraben and fragrance fee. This is by far the best and most effective eye serum I have ever tried!

The Lip Kit is a great treat! Try it yourself or add it as an add-on service. The 3-set process works wonders to exfoliate, hydrate, and replenish your lips. The sugar scrub feels amazing knowing you are removing dry and dead skin from the lip area. The oil in the scrub lingers on the lips to make them feel extra soft and smooth. I love that the kit comes with a masque specific for the lips. After the second step, your lips will already feel amazing and you still have one step to go. There is no better way to finish the 3- step process than with the Lip Renewal. It is infused with supreme hydrating ingredients that will have your lips feeling supple all day long! With their proven effectiveness, I couldn9t recommend these products more! You must try them and see the results for yourself!
