Grads and Brides *Nail Care*

Our Next topic- Nail Care!!!

Goodbye LONG French Gel nails- Hello short, colored nails! 

Don’t get me wrong, a French Gel is always classy and beautiful, but your options have opened up a lot in the past couple of years!  From colored gel, to Shellac, we are seeing the options open up for your nails on your special day. 

Gel- If you are a dye-hard gel wearer, don’t switch right before your event.  Gel looks amazing, and lasts a good 3 weeks on average.  There are beautiful choices of colors and classy nail art, to spice up your gels!

*Note that it is not the best to get gels just for ONE occasion or day.  Have you ever heard the long time rumor that “gels ruin your nails”???  MYTH!!!!  Guess what ruins your nails- Picking off the gel after you decide you don’t want it any more!  Ladies!!!  It is your duty to get your gel professionally removed, just as you had them professionally applied!  DO NOT pick off your gel-that’s what will cause damage to your nails…Your Esthetician or Nail Tech will gently file off the bulk of the gel, and give you a nice manicure while it naturally grows out!  Myth BUSTED!!!!

Shellac-This product is wonderful for people who don’t normally wear gels.  It is just about as quick as a regular manicure, and it lasts 2 good weeks.  And the best part is, you can go back to your salon, and have them removed in 15 minutes-no product remains or damage to the nail!  Shellac comes in wonderful colors, and DON’T PANIC, you CAN get a French Shellac Manicure!

*Note that Shellac is also AMAZING for pedicures- NO dry time, put your shoes right on after your pedicure, and be sure that you will experience NO smudging or clumping, wear stilettos out of your appointment , I DARE YOU … Hooray!!!!!!

If you are in a Bridal Party, Call Pure White about Manicure and Pedicure Parties- They are so much fun, and can even be done in the comfort of your own home!!!

A New Year-Grads and Brides, it's GO time! *Skin Care*

Happy 2012 Everyone!!!

Though it seems crazy, it's time to start thinking about Grad and Wedding Season!!!! Here are some great tips to get you through the next 6 months...

Skin Care:

It is a great idea to get a facial once every season.  Schedule a facial 3 weeks before your event, and for optimal skin health, schedule one 4 months before the event as well.  This will clean out the pores and will ensure your skin looks fresh and clean for your big day! 

*Note that it is important to use good skin care in between facials, to maintain the health and condition of the skin!!!  I recommend Sea Vital, and you can find this great skin care at Pure White!  One thing I stand by is that I would never recommend something I don't fully believe in-I use this skin care, I love it, and this stuff works!!!  Give me a call for more info and for the latest skin care promotions...

Stay tuned for my next Grad/Wedding blog- Topic: Nail Care!!!
All the best and Happy New Year!!!
