nail titleEveryone’s nails need some freshening up every now and then. Take advantage of the spring (cleaning) season with these quick and simple tips!


Exfoliating is easy but important for soft, youthful hands. Try our Exfoliating Body Polish. This conditioning exfoliator will lift dry, dulling skin and reveal its silky, soft radiance without drying.


Are your nails darkened or discolored? Just simply make a paste of lemon juice and two teaspoons of whitening toothpaste to leave on nails for five minutes, and then rinse.
Constant moisturization is key for beautiful hands! Try our Hand Crème, formulated with natural shea butter, vitamin E and botanical oils.


Sterilizing nail tools (especially the metal ones) is a necessity. First, wash them with soap and hot water. Next, boil them in water for about 20 minutes. Finally, soak them in rubbing alcohol for another 20 minutes.

Celebrity Copycat: Nail Trend!


For those of you who aren’t too sure about adding bright colors to your Mani, here are some Nudes and Neutral Nail Trends you must try!

From award season to fashion week… these shades are flattering on everyone making nails look elegant and pretty. Try a bare nail like Michelle Dockery and Natalie Portman when you want to keep it simple. The idea behind the Nude nail color is to choose a shade that is close to your skintone or at least to the color your nail is without polish. Sugar Rush is great nude with a bit of pink because a yellow undertone on a nude shade can make your nails looks dirty. This shade also works great with anyone as you can intensify it by applying more coats. A rosey neutral is a good compromise between a nude and a some color. The Mauving on Up nail colour is a good choice to spice up a neutral nail even a bit more than Hayden Panettiere and Zoe Saldana did with their creamy nudes. This way you get a nail hue that is as versatile as a Nude plus a bit of excitement with the hint of color. Tauped is a neutral that looks chic and classic. It is a great neutral alternative to a dark color while giving you some of that boldness. Just look how beautiful this shade looks on Connie Britton and Debra Messing, perfect for any occasion and mood.



GOLD AND SILVER: Nail + Eye + Lip!

Nothing says Holiday like Gold and Silver! What better to get in the festive spirit than tinsel tips, shimmering lips, and golden eyes to die for! My Precious Gems mini set comes complete with a soft gold long wear liner. A super shine white gold flecked gloss. And mini versions of our best selling nail polishes in Golden Ticket and Smoke’n Mirrors. For a perfect party ready pout pack on the sparkle or create show stopping eyes with bold gold line. My favorite way to incorporate these metallics into my holiday repertoire? Updating a classic french manicure with a modern gold or silver tip.
