Get ready for Spring
Since the temperature is rising and Spring is knocking on our doors (including loads of beautiful sandals) – we asked Trish to give us the ultimate pedi-rundown.
Here she tells us all about a recent pedi launch, about a real nail game-changer, and about her secret weapon that gets your feet ready for Spring. Without further ado – here are Trish’s top tips for tip top toes!
The launch that is worth the splurge
CLARASONIC PEDI SONIC FOOT TRANSFORMATION KIT
Clarisonic have launched another revolutionary sonic device to transform dry neglected feet, into smooth tooties. Designed to help soften and hydrate heels and toes – the pedi system is an ultimate at home regime for care, as well as maintenance, of a professional pedicure.
-High heels and tight shoes squeeze and cause pressure on the toes and balls of feet.
-Oversized socks form pressure where bunching occurs, rubbing against the seams in shoes.
-Thin-soled shoes lead to increased friction on heels as well.
-Neglect and not moisturising the skin on the feet.
Here are Trish’s steps to smooth feet using Clarisonic Pedi:
-Use the exfoliant with the Buffing Brush Head to remove debris and smooth rough and dry skin.
-Then apply the softening balm to help hydrate and protect your feet.
TWICE WEEKLY REGIME:
-Use the Pedi-Smooth Disc on dry feet before your daily Pedi-Buff to get rid of calluses.
– After buffing, massage the renewing peel into your feet for extra exfoliation. It contains lactic and glycol to help remove dead skin cells – and then follow with the Pedi-Balm. Done!
Super soft and healthy feet, here we come!
Extra tip: Using the pedi-Wet/Dry Buffing Brush Head dry will provide quick touch ups – and as a finishing touch you can use an oil to moisturise the skin.
The new formula that is staying - on our toes and in our cupboards
OPI INFINITE SHINE
Nail lacquers have been around for about 50 years using the same formulation which provides approximately 3-4 days wear. Gel polish gives 14 days wear, but requires a UV or LED light to cure. Now there is a new generation of nail colour that gives 10 days wear – the secret is not only in the formulation of the nail colour but also in the top coat which reacts with natural day light to produce a tougher chip resistant seal.
OPI Infinite Shine provides colour with a gel like finish that requires no touch ups all week long.
Step 1 – Primer – a revolutionary grip on colour.
Step 2 – Pigment – many rich vivid colours.
Step 3 – Gloss – gel polymer formula that cures in natural daylight, and is easily removed without soaking.
