Keeping Those Gams Gorgeous!

Keeping Those Gams Gorgeous!

Did you know, that it is never a good idea to shave before a pedicure. “Why”? Well, you’re more vulnerable to infections just after you shave your legs. When we run those blades up our legs, the razor creates microtears in the skin, which can allow bacteria to be introduced right into the legs. Opening us to the possibility of serious infections, like cellulitis. Which you could literally end up in a hospital for. We suggest waiting at least two days after shaving before going in for a pedicure. Whether your legs are shaven or not, doesn’t really matter to...

Going Au-Naturale!

All of us love our nails to be on point, whether it’s a seasonal color, holiday color, your favorite color, or just buffed natural. We believe in keeping our minds and bodies healthy, and what we put on our nails, affects our health.

B.Y.O.P

B.Y.O.P

Ever wonder why your last manicure was so beautiful and seemed to last forever; and the next time you used the same polish, same salon and same manicurist, but your nails all chipped the same or next day. Well the truth is that many salons use thinners in order to get as much polish from the bottle as possible, causing polish to chip quicker. If that isn’t a good enough argument for bringing your own polish for your next mani/pedi, think about how many different nails those tiny paint brushes have run across. Allowing bacteria and possibly fungus to transfer...
