Shellac Attack!- The Nail Biter Experience- Day 1 – Review by Kerri

The joke around the office is that the new CND Shellac is the best
invention since the Internet, and for us ladies it just might be!

Since the beginning of manicure history, a 14-day manicure has always
been unheard of – especially if you9re like me who has been plagued by
nail and cuticle biting their entire life! From the moment I heard
about this, I could not wait for our CND Shellac Kits to arrive. And
today, for the first time, I was “shellacked.” I’ve always been
partial to a glamorous light pink so I selected the CND Shellac
Romantique as my color of choice. I had my nails pre-manicured and my
cuticles clipped. With each coat that was applied, I became more and
more excited to see the finished product. I could not believe how fast
the UV lamp cured the nails. I am so used to waiting for my nails dry,
that I had to be reminded that it was okay to fix my hair with my
freshly painted nails, the minute after we finished! Most importantly,
my nails have stayed far away from my mouth. Even an habitual nail
biter wouldn’t want to chomp on these perfectly polished and shiny
nails. 1st day=Success!

Perfect for Warmer Weather – Palm Tree Nail Designs

The weather is finally getting warmer here in New York, and what better time to jump ahead and play with fun nail designs that make you think of warmer weather? I came across these Palm Tree nail art designs and instantly thought of warm weather, summer, and vacations. All you need is polishes in sunset colors of red, pink, and yellow. Black polish for the palm tree design and a thin nail art brush.

And if you’re not into the sunset look, check out the palm tree design with more of a beach background. All you need for this one is to change the background color to two shades of blue and a bit of yellow:

These designs will definitely help your clients get ready for the summer months!

Comfort Your Pedicure Clients During the Winter Months!

Nothing is more uncomfortable during the winter at the nail salon than cold feet after pedicures! With the Non-woven Pedi Cozies, you will be able to bring in more pedicure clients during this time of year when pedicure services normally would die down.

No one likes cold feet, so they pass on the pedicure when coming in for their services. These Pedi Cozies are a perfect solution for keeping your clients feet and ankles warm during drying time and when they walk out to their car. Added warmth also allows foot creams to penetrate for softer and smother skin!

The Pedi Cozies are soft, comfortable, and disposable yet reusable and are available in White or Black.They are the perfect add on to an ultimate pedicure experience! Also, check out the Pedi Sox, which are great to use during your pedicure services, as well as retailing to your clients!

Directions: Before polish, hold the Non-Woven Pedi Cozies from the wide side stretch opening, put on like a sock and allow toes to go through the narrow side stretch opening. Repeat with other foot. Put on pedi slippers and toe separators to complete the pedicure.

Don’t forget to stock up on your pedicure slippers and toe separators!

Let It Snow!

Even though it’s 60 degrees here in New York, it’s still winter, and a little snow is always fun! I’m sure I’ll be rescinding that statement once it becomes 30 degrees with a foot or two of snow on the ground come mid February. Looking to make it snow in your spa? Well, not actual snow, but we do have an amazing scrub that looks just like it! Be sure to check out our Pedi-Redi Snow! Pedi Redi helps to clean and prepare the feet for treatment by softening calluses and cuticles for easy exfoliation. This special blend is formulated without any dyes or fragrances, making it ideal for your clients who are sensitive to scents. You can even add essential oils to customize your own scrub! This is the type of snow you’re definitely going to want at your spa all year long 🙂

Step it Up with Pedicure Slippers!

Adding slippers to your pedicure can really enhance your spa service. Customers like to feel appreciated, plus everyone loves free stuff! I hate it when I go to get a Pedicure, and realize I am wearing socks and sneakers, and don’t have my flip flops with me. It’s a frightful sight thinking about having to put your feet back in your shoes after they’ve just been freshly painted. Gratising your clients disposable slippers is an easy and affordable way to ease their nail-smudging worries.

A favorite buy are the Encore Slip Resistant Foam Pedicure Thong Slippers with Cloth Reinforced Soles. The case includes 360 pairs, with each pair individually wrapped. They are disposable and sanitary. They come in a variety of 6 different mixed colors: White, Pink, Blue, Green, Black and Yellow. Customers will love the slippers, because they are comfortable and durable. There will be less time wasted having to repair pedicures for clients who prematurely put their shoes back on. These slippers can be worn out to the car! Another major benefit of these slippers (a benefit for both the client and the spa!) is that they are slip-resistant!

At only $0.33 a pair, they are very economical. All it takes is a little bit to go along way in pleasing your clients!

What Is In Your Manicure and Pedicure Bowls?

Variety is the key to keep customers happy and coming back. Adding a little extra something special to your manicure soak or pedicure soak can make a huge difference! Your client will feel extra pampered and luxurious by adding something as simple as gemstones. Just add the gemstones or stones to cover the bottom of your manicure or pedicure bowl.
There are such beautiful colored gemstones that not only offer a eye popping, look but some have healing properties or interesting characteristics.

For example, take the Green Aventurine Gemstone. Widely viewed as an all around “luck” stone, Aventurine is more specifically known for stimulating dreaming and helping those who use it find balance and a stronger personal identity. Green Aventurine is particularly revered as a stone that can ease anxiety and calm emotion, perhaps helping to whether stress and worries, helping you to keep a positive outlook.

Another great look to add to the manicure soak is beautiful glass manicure bowl. The gemstones shine through the glass bowl, looking beautiful and providing the client with a peaceful and serene setting. Who wouldn’t want to be pampered by such beauty!
