Nailed It! Salon-Quality Nails at Home

BeautyJuly2015While we all love a professional manicure, not everyone has the time or the funds to keep a standing appointment with their favorite nail tech! Fake a salon-quality manicure or pedicure with these three beauty tools.

1. Glass nail file? – As our nails age and become more brittle, it’s important to swap those cardboard emery boards for a file that protects nails’ structure. Glass and crystal files are much gentler and seal the keratin layers together at the tip of the nail to prevent chipping and peeling. Glass files can also be sanitized in hot, soapy water, making them a more hygienic option.

2. Exfoliating Foot SCRUB – Exfoliation removes dead skin cells to reveal soft, healthy skin, and it is especially beneficial for our feet, as athletic shoes and high heels can lead to calluses on our heels and toes. Opt for a natural pumice stone with sea salt and essential oils to slough away dry skin, refresh and deodorize.

3. Colorful nail polishes – ?Though a nude or pale nail is always in style, bright, bold colors can draw attention away from aging hands or less-than-perfect nails. Make a statement for summer with a flattering coral or even seafoam!
