Christian Louboutin Nails It!

It’s no surprise Christian Louboutin has made his debut in the world of beauty with a shade of red nail color called Rouge Louboutin. In fact, if you didn’t know, the signature red sole of his sky high heels was originally the product of a coat of nail polish. In the early 90s, after creating footwear inspired by an Andy Warhol piece, he felt something was still missing from the design. He swiped a bottle of red nail polish from his assistant, painted the soles of the heels and the rest is history! Read the rest of this entry »

5 Reasons To Perfect Your Feet!

24 Jul

If you think about it, you’re on your feet all day! Whether it’s running errands, jogging on the treadmill, or dancing the night away, your feet deserve a little TLC. Need convincing? Check out a few of the many reasons you should treat those feet:

1. Sanitization is Super Important!

I know what you’re thinking: “I wash my feet every day!” But regardless of how often you suds up, you’re still at risk for dreaded foot infections, such as fungus and athlete’s foot. Getting regular pedicures can help prevent this! During the pedi process, calluses are removed, along with sweat residue and dead skin.

Manicure Mania Vancouver

02 Jul

salon beauty bar manicure vancouverThe summer forecast shows signs of naturals, mattes, and sexy, sophisticated stilettos. We like to call this manicure mania!

First off, as a major salon diva I must report that the instant dry gel polishes, such as Shellac and Gelish, are still on top. The ladies are loving that they can get a perfect manicure and not have to wait around for it to dry. It cures instantly and stays shiny for at least 10-14 days!

Having said that…Not everyone is a salon diva. We still have our gals that like to keep it sweet and simple with a good ol’ regular, classic manicure. It’s been about minimalism lately. We are seeing a lot of pale neutrals, think sheer pinks, barely-there French manicures, and cream colors. Milky pastels in orange, raspberry, yellow, and blue are also favorites. And some even keep it real with just a shiny top coat. Playing it cool with pale nails is so hot right now! Read the rest of this entry »
