The Mother Of Massage Tables – Nuage Vector™ Studio by Living Earth Crafts!!!

When I started massage school many moons ago, I would have never dreamed up a table better than the Nuage Vector™ Studio by Living Earth Crafts!

The quality of the Living Earth Crafts line is unparalleled and this table is no exception!


With so many options to choose from for color, cushioning, width and even a face cradle with sound, you’re basically building your dream table. Now for the truly awesome features of this table….

It’s all electric which, if you’re used to having wooden knob adjustments to raise/lower your table – you’ll adore this!

It has chroma therapy lighting – if you’re not familiar with this, I highly suggest checking it out. The use of colored lighting has been shown to be helpful with relaxation.

My favorite feature is the embedded digital table warmer. I’ll say it again, it has a built-in digital table warmer. No more annoying cords to stumble over or table warmers bunching up anywhere.

A few more unique features include acoustic resonance, embedded Bluetooth® stereo speakers, Apple iPad® control system, meditative nature journeys—seriously, there isn’t anything else you need on a table to offer an amazing experience to every single client.

If you’re looking to take your business to the next level, you’ve found it!

Feeling blue? Mask Spotlight: Blueberry!

Blueberries have so many benefits for your skin!

Try adding the Hydrophylic Gel Collagen Mask – Blueberry Collagen Mask to your treatments, and reap the rewards!

Uses: All skin types! It prevents collagen from breaking down and strengthens the dermal matrix.

It contains supercharged antioxidant power, packed with phytonutrients that naturally avert glycation-induced damage by stabilizing the collagen matrix.

Promotes collagen biosynthesis, strengthening human skin fibroblasts, and improves microcirculation. This increases the hydration level of skin cells, blocks the unwelcoming formation of chemical bridges in collagen that causes its breakdown.

Improves cracking, creping, and thinning of the skin and reduces visible signs of aging by regaining smoothness and plumpness.

The mask can be used alone or combined with other treatments or in conjunction with micro-current, radiofrequency, ultrasound, galvanic, or light therapy. Appropriate for plastic surgery, dermatology, spa, and med-spa markets.

Ingredients:
Aqua, Vegetable Glycerin, Sodium Alginate, Sodium PCA, Aloe Extract, Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans, Marine Collagen, Blue Berry, Arginine, Haluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide, Growth-Modulating Peptide, Hexapeptide.

But what do the ingredients do!?
The paraben, alcohol, and colorant free mask collection combines state- of-the-art science with utter luxury. The extravagant and powerful blend of peptides, Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor, botanicals, natural extracts, vitamins, Hyaluronic acid, natural elements, and Marine collagen offers the perfect solution to every skincare concern. In only 15 – 20 minutes, the rich ingredients condensed in these Hydrophilic gels will gradually dissolve, and be absorbed by the skin.

But wait, there’s more! I also love the Blueberry Collagen Eye Mask.

This has become very popular to use as an add on service during waxing, lash extensions, brow and lash tinting, lash lifts, and lash perms. Even better, it’s results are immediate. These relaxing treatments give instant and long term results that keep the clients coming back again and again.

This anti-aging eye treatment stimulates the skin9s natural repair functions. Promotes collagen biosynthesis, strengthening human skin fibroblasts, and improves microcirculation. Restores natural moisture and provides firmness to the delicate muscles around the eye area. It reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and rejuvenates the eye contour.

CND VINYLUX Polish Review & Troubleshooting

Cake Pop #135

I have been vacillating on whether or not to post my review on this polish. I had very high hopes for Vinylux. The color selection is beautiful, and the application was a breeze, but 11 hours after I shot these photos of my manicure I noticed a hole in one of my nails. It appeared that I brushed against something and it took a chunk clean out of my polish, there was just a hole in the middle of my nail polish. We were shopping at Home Depot that day for plants, so maybe it got banged up there? Either way, after potting one plant and doing some very light gardening, the polish on my thumbs had receded – badly.

My Vinylux manicure was so banged up after only 24 hours that I removed it! All the girls here at Pure Spa have been using several different colors, and they all have had different experiences to report. The bottom line is the same with any manicure; if you are rough on your hands – expect a roughed up manicure, even with Vinylux in my opinion. This is only to put expectations into perspective as some clients thought this was going to be a gel like wear polish… when in fact it is just a polish. Now, I want to point out some useful tips that I think will be helpful for maximizing Vinylux polish applications & success.

Don’t lay it on too thick!

Troubleshooting VINYLUX:

1) No Basecoat, no exceptions. I know of some die hard Rejuvacote users that want to continue using this treatment under Vinylux. NO BASE COAT – no exceptions. A base coat will negate the performance of Vinylux and the adhesives that are in the polish color.

2) Follow CND’s P.E.P protocol*. What is P.E.P?:

P-erform Mini Manicure = Removing the Cuticle off the nail plate
E-liminate Surface Contaminants = ScrubFresh
P-Purify Nail Plate = ScrubFresh

* Anyone I spoke to that had problems with Vinylux longevity did NOT follow the PEP step!

Always cap the edges!



3) Cap the free edge. This helps in ANY manicure. But especially since Vinylux is being marketed to consumers, they will need to know that this step helps chips and polish receding.

4) Not too thick. Apply two, controlled coats – don’t cake it on. My longest lasting manicures are meticulously applied by my manicurist using controlled, thin strokes of polish. I tend to go a little thick on my applications, which most likely led to chipping – like in this case.

5) Stay dry and let it dry. I once read it is best not to get your nails wet for at least 5 hours after a manicure. So get your Purell handy and leave your nails alone to cure. Drying time for Vinylux is approx. 10 minutes.

Follow these steps and you will get a great 7 days out of your Vinylux polish.
