For clear enhancements, we recommend to finish using CND PLEXIGEL™ Protector Top Coat. If using CND™ SHELLAC™ Gel Polish over CND PLEXIGEL™, finish with CND™ SHELLAC™ Original (or DURAFORCE™) Top Coat instead of Protector Top Coat.

What is the purpose of the large bottle neck?
The CND PLEXIGEL™ bottle was designed specifically for ease of use based on the individual viscosity of each product. The larger bottle neck accommodates the viscosity of the gel, making it easier to remove from the bottle and for portion control with each application.

OPI Spring 2021 Hollywood Collection

Spring 2021 can’t come soon enough! Here in NY, we have been slammed with a blizzard….so I am definitely dreaming about spring today! What better to dream about than the new OPI Spring 2021 Collection?

In celebration of its 40th anniversary, OPI recently introduced the Hollywood Collection, in honor of its birthplace. It features colors celebrating “then” with a nod to vintage Hollywood glamour, and “now” with the season9s most trendsetting colors.

OPI’s Hollywood History:

Did you know that OPI first made its big-screen debut in 2001 in the iconic movie, Legally Blonde? (No one can forget the iconic bend and snap beauty salon scene!) From there, the brand has appeared in films ranging from Alice in Wonderland to Fifty Shades of Grey, and worked with celebrity brand ambassadors, like Katy Perry, Kerry Washington, and Serena Williams.

OPI is renowned globally for its Nail Lacquers – a brilliant, chip-resistant, professional formula available in over 200 fashion-forward colors. With clever names that customers look forward to with each new Collection, OPI Nail Lacquers are beloved around the world and trusted by professionals. All OPI lacquers are DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde free. Some say OPI is the “gold standard” in nail polish. They have proven to go above and beyond in performance and wear.

The 7 Day Vinylux Challenge – Day 1! Is Vinylux a Game-Changer?

CND has been taking the nail industry by storm in the last few years. First, they released Shellac – the biggest nail trend…well, probably ever! They changed the game for salons, providing the Power-Polish gel manicure that applies like a polish and lasts 2 weeks.

Now, it seems CND has done it again with the release of Vinylux….but this time, they took it one step further. Vinylux is perfect for application in the salon, but since it does not require a lamp to cure, and can be easily removed with nail polish remover, clients can perform manicures and touch-ups at home. This opens up a whole new avenue for retailing these products to your clients, creating more revenue for your salon!

I know what you are thinking – you already have a full line of polishes, gels, and gel polishes. Why do you need more?

Why we LOVE Vinylux

  1. Simple, 2-step process: color polish, top coat. That’s it! No base coat, no curing. SUPER EFFICIENT!
  2. 8.5 minute dry time. So fast!
  3. Flawless color lasts without chipping for 7 days!
  4. Easy removal – no soak-off, no drill. Even remove at home!
That all sounds great on paper, right? Well, here is the REAL test! I performed my first Vinylux manicure last night, and will post updates over the next seven days to see how well it lasts.
Vinylux Grape Gum – Day 1
Initial Thoughts: Love the polish formula – applied smoothly, not streaky or clumpy. I felt odd applying color direct to my nail, but I can certainly get used to one less step! I did apply 3 coats of color (instructions recommend 2 coats) – I didn’t feel that I had evenly applied the color after 2 coats. I think that is a reflection of my application skills rather than the polish, though. I usually apply 3 coats of color.
Each coat dried really quickly – by the time I applied polish to each of my 10 fingers and started at the beginning again for the next coat, the previous layer felt dry instead of tacky, so I didn’t end up with weird brush marks near my cuticle. Definite plus!
I performed my manicure about 45 minutes before I hit the sack – usually, this is a recipe for disaster. I am the Queen of destroying my manicures with Sheet and Bedding marks. However, my Vinylux was still perfect when I woke up this morning – not a Sheet Mark to be seen, hallelujah!
The only oddity is how the polish feels – it is almost rubbery, not hard, shiny, and glossy. It looks shiny and glossy, the finish just doesn’t feel like regular polish. But, if it lasts, that is A-OK with me! On a final note: I do feel like the striations in my nails are accentuated with this polish, but I am not sure if it is the color or the polish itself. After my 7-Day Challenge is over, I will try another color to compare!
Check back in a couple of days for some picture updates from my 7-Day Challenge….and pick up Vinylux for your salon today!

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!
