Gelish…The Gel Manicure that’s getting everyone Jealous!

What has been missing from the manicure world??

Gelish…..The product that every nail tech needs to know about!

By now, I am sure that every nail technician has heard of the gel manicure and most of you have probably even heard of Nail Harmony9s Gelish, but how much do you really know about the Gelish products? Gelish isn9t like every other gel manicure on the market. What sets Gelish apart from other gel manicures is how it is formulated.

Gelish is a pigmented gel whereas other gel manicures are lacquer/hybrids. In simpler terms, this means you will never have to shake a nail polish bottle again! Ever have a client complain that there favorite color looks a little different this time then the last time they got it? Gelish will make that question completely disappear! The reason that makes all this possible is because a pigmented gel means the color of the polish is always going to be the same, causing consistency bottle to bottle, application to application. Being that Gelish is a pigmented gel also means that you will be providing your customers with a product that lasts longer, won9t deplete or damage their nails, and will give them the strong nails they always wanted.

How Will Gelish benefit you, The Nail Tech:

  • With Gelish9s proven performance, your business will expand like never before.
  • No girl left behind! With 48 colors and 48 more coming in soon there is a color for everyone, every age.
  • Gelish will attract a whole new clientele that you haven9t been able to reach with other products, including girls that have never gotten manicures before.
  • With 20-30 seconds cure time, you can do more manicures a day then you ever thought possible which will increase your profits.
  • No more smudged nails which means no more wasting time fixing a smudged nail.
  • From French manicures to multi-colored glittered manicures, Gelish will allow you to provide clients with a variety of options.
  • When placing a Gelish order with Pure Spa Direct we will help do the advertising for you! Each order will contain a Shelf Talker at no additional charge.

Why your clients will fall in love Gelish:

  • Clients will finally be able to have a long lasting manicure, up to 21 days of perfectly polished nails!
  • Clients will have piece of mind before vacationing, finally their manicure will make it past the plane ride.
  • Clients will be given the opportunity to have fun with the variety and options Gelish will offer them. Something for every occasion – all year long!
  • Clients will feel confident in knowing that they can have a long lasting manicure that protects the nails instead of depleting or damaging the nails.

Your clients will appreciate not having to get a manicure every week, and a happy client makes a happy business & referrals!

Quick, Long-Lasting Gel Manicures with the New Geláze 2 in 1 Gel Polish System from China Glaze!

I have always loved all of the China Glaze colors and collections, but I am addicted to gel polish manicures! So, I was super excited to see that China Glaze has come out with a 2 in 1 Gel Polish System! The great thing about this system is that the base coat is built right into the color, which saves a lot of time when performing the service for your clients. All you need is the Geláze Top Coat and an LED or UV Lamp. China Glaze Geláze Gel-n-Base in One comes in 49 shades of color-matched gel perfection to complement China Glaze’s top 49 selling lacquers. Geláze delivers chip-free nails and spectacular shine and your client will love how quickly you can give them their desired long-lasting manicure!

Application

  • Prep: Perform a dry manicure. Then remove shine from the natural nail with a buffer.
  • Gel-n-Base in One: Apply a thin coat of Gel-n-Base in One gel polish and cure 30 seconds under LED lamp or 2 minutes under UV lamp. Repeat the process for a second coat.
  • Gelaze Gel Top Coat: Apply a thin coat of Gelaze Gel Top Coat and cure 30 seconds under LED lamp or 2 minutes under UV lamp.
  • Cleanse: After Top Coat application, wipe cured nails Gelaze Pre-Soaked Gel Cleanser Pad to remove sticky gel residue.



Removal

  • Prep: With a nail file, break the seal of the gel nail.
  • Saturate: Saturate Gelaze Professional Gel and Nail Polish Remover Wrap with Gelaze Gel Remover.
  • Wrap: Wrap securely around nail. Allow to penetrate for 10 minutes.

The process is simple and just like a regular gel polish manicure, however your cutting out one step (applying and curing the base coat), which gives you more time for more client appointments!

Improve Circulation This Winter with Arnica

Poor circulation is common during the cold winter months, and I’m sure many of your clients complain about it this time of year. Are you looking for more ways to take this common complaint into consideration at your spa this winter? While the average massage service can most certainly help, you can take it one step further by incorporating the herb arnica into your massage treatments. According to a recent article I read, arnica works with the body9s own system and helps to dispose of waste as well as increase circulation. In order for your clients to receive the maximum benefit from arnica, all you need to do is apply a small amount, about one or two drops of concentrated oil, to the desired area, followed by massage with your favorite cream. We have arnica oil here at Pure Spa Direct, as well as massage creams! Click here to browse our arnica collection, and help keep your clients’ circulation balanced this winter!

5 HOT Retail Items for the Holidays!

2020 is not your typical year, and everyone may be looking for different ways to bring in sales this year. Many clients are looking for ways to support their favorite small businesses as well, so this puts salons and spas in a unique position to increase their retail sales, even if clients are hesitant to come in for services!

Pure Spa Direct has brought in a ton of new retail items just for this reason, and I have included our 5 favorites below!

  1. The Most Supportive Hairbrush Ever:

    Framar Motivation Monday Detangle Brush / You Can Do It, -Coffee
    Part of the Motivation Monday Brush collection – The Motivation Monday “You Can Do It, -Coffee” Detangling Brush is a fun slogan detangling brush. Effortlessly detangles the most stubborn of knots and works on wet or dry hair.

  2. Stocking Stuffers for at least 50% of Their List:

    Invisibobble – 48 Piece Starter Kit With Free Display
    The magic trick to invisibobble’s traceless outcome lies in its peculiar telephone cord shape. When wrapped around the hair, the innovative hairring places uneven pressure around the circumference of the ponytail—allowing hair to be held strongly in the ponytail without being too tight. This gives individual hairs more space within the ponytail and leads to a traceless result. Due to its smooth surface and invisibobble’s spiral shape, people can avoid headaches while preventing split ends and breakage.

    *21 Original – (4 Clear, 4 Black, 4 Brown, 3 Nude , 3 Mint, 3 Blush)
    *12 Nano – (4 Clear, 4 Black, 2 Brown, 2 Nude)
    *15 Power – (6 Clear, 3 Black, 3 Brown, 3 Nude)
    *1 FREE Display

  3. It’s 2020, Keep It Clean!


    Micellar 3-in-1 Cleansing Water Micellar 3-in-1 Cleansing Water Wipes Display
    Display holds 4 of Micellar Cleansing Water 8.5 oz and 4 of Micellar Cleansing Water 30ct Wipes.
    *3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water: This 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water will remove waterproof makeup while soothing and refreshing skin.
    *3–in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water Wipes: These 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water Wipes will remove waterproof makeup, and the gentle formula includes micelle molecules that trap and dissolve unwanted particles, leaving skin clean and hydrated.

  4. A Little Reminder is All We Need!


    Shop Talk – A Little Mascara Won’t Hurt Cosmetic Bag
    Approximately 8 inches wide x 6 inches tall, this adorable purple cosmetic bag casually declares, ‘A little mascara won’t hurt’. Made of 100% cotton canvas with a classy, complementing pink cotton liner, this Shop Talk exclusive is just the thing to keep your essentials handy and the sturdy gold zipper can handle multiple touch-ups throughout your busy day.

  5. A Tan is Just What the Doctor Ordered!

    MineTan – Self Tan Foam Minis Pack
    A tan always makes you feel better…and after the year 2020 has been, your clients might be looking for a great pick-me-up they can apply at home!

Yoga Balm for Your Business is da Balm!

If you are looking for a product to use in your massages and body treatments that will make an
impression on your clients, or a retail product they will love, check out our new Yoga Balm! Yoga Balm is a pharmaceutical balm that offers an integrative path toward wellness for those who seek to enhance the body9s innate ability to heal. Soothing warmth is combined with an array of essential, organic oils to promote core levels of healing throughout the system.

Carefully crafted in small batches, Yoga Balm contains a beautiful blend of beeswax and an array of organic plant oils and essential oils to provide soothing warmth. This unique balm offers a unique way to end a massage, as Yakima peppermint (most aged and concentrated in the US) imparts a relaxing tingling sensation while the plant oils and extracts are absorbed by parched skin. Clients will love the way it feels and will want some of their own. Yoga Balm is free of pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic additives.

Usage:
Use as a spot treatment during massage, yoga, or healing practice of your choice. It’s also great for overworked hands and feet, especially before bedtime. A small amount (approximately a nickel size) will be enough for a shoulder or like-size region.

Benefits:

  • Moisturizing but not greasy
  • A little goes a long way
  • No medicinal smell—just the clean scent of peppermint

Contains organic ingredients.
