In the past few years the Nail Industry has taken leaps and strides in new directions like never before! Pre-existing lines are growing and expanding at a very fast rate, while new product launches are popping up all over the place, making it hard to keep track! In order to stay competitive in the industry, you must be able toadapt to the change. At the forefront of all the new nail trends is "CREATIVITY." The more funky the manicure, the better!

All the new trends may be great on business and for increasing client volume, but also may be taken a toll on the nail technician providing the services. With all the new advancements and product launches, also comes required learning and training of the new products and their application. A great little tool , that is cheap and that can help make the lives of every nail tech easier is the Finger Rest by DL Professional. Instead of having to constantly hold the clients hand, you can give yourself and your client a rest. The Finger Rest by DL Professional allows you to get as CREATIVE as possible , while using both hands to apply as much decor, and accessories to the nails as possibly desired.

Experience the Effects of Magic with the New Gelish Aurora EFX Collection!


I am a huge fan of Gelish, and have been ever since the line first came out! I love the wide variety of colors because it’s impossible to get bored, and there is a color option for everyone, of all ages. I give a lot of credit to Nail Harmony, because as the list of colors keeps growing, the Gelish line gets more and more exciting!

Included in the newest Gelish - Aurora Magic Collection are 6 Gel polishes that bring spice and excitement to plain gel polish. The Aurora Magic Collection collection utilizes a "Shimmer Accent" that changes in the light, like magic. Each polish has so much more to it then the color itself. Some of the polishes in the collection can be used by themselves, but all can be combined with other colors to create magical nails. Here’s the “The Low Down” on each color in the collection:

Ooca Coocha Bing Bang Bam - Alakazy Alakazam…love it! Wearing it now (see pic below). I compare my nails to a mermaids tail with the blue/green hues… AMAZING! I never received so many compliments on my nails. Recommended 2 coats by itself.

Wiggle Finger, Wiggle Thumbs - That's The Way The Magic Comes- Gorgeous deep dark night sky blue, with powerful glitter accents. (see pic below) Recommended 3 coats by itself.

Ali Baba's Sim Sala Bam- Fun, flirty, deep plum, purple with captivating shimmer. Recommended 3 coats by itself.

The Great Google Moogly- Lemon-Lime green. Interesting and fun to say the least. Recommended for layering. 3 coats by itself.

Close Your Fingers And Cross Your Eyes- Orange/Tangerine shimmer. Very sheer Recommended for layering....Try over Black Shadow! 3 coats by itself.

Izzy Wizzy, Lets Get Busy- Translucent and sheer and loaded with shimmer accents to add excitement to any gel polish. Recommended for layering.

Gemstone Manicures: Create a Unique & Enjoyable Experience for Your Clients

When a person enters a nail salon, hair salon, or spa, he or she is not just going for aesthetic upkeep or routine maintenance; that person is looking for an experience that goes to the next level. We get our nails done not just because we want our cuticles cleaned and a color on our fingers, but we are all looking for an escape to a happier or more peaceful place. One of the unique aspects of working in the beauty industry is that you have the ability to transport your clients to a different and, oftentimes, better state of mind. Nail treatments, specifically, are becoming more and more monotonous and predictable with the generic soak, nail cleaning, scrub, massage and then polish application. It is hard to remain loyal to one specific salon when the services are the same everywhere.

You can stand out from the crowd and earn customer loyalty by offering the **Brand New** Gemstone Manicures and Pedicures! Pure Spa Direct is now offering 22 varieties of gorgeous gemstones for you to now offer your clients. Simply add a handful of stones to your manicure dishes, two handfuls to your pedicures bowls and VOILA, you have refreshed your menu for your clients! By introducing these gems into your services, you are adding a dash of decadence and a whole lot of value to your business. Each stone is associated with a unique vibrational property, so now you can offer unique services such as:
  • The Tranquility Manicure/Pedicure with Fancy Jasper
  • The Calming Manicure/Pedicure with Moonstones
  • The Happy Manicure/Pedicure with Clear Quartz
  • The Prosperity Manicure/Pedicure with Emeralds - Who wouldn't want to soak their hands in Emeralds?!
The scientific explanation for the vibrational

properties is that all stones and gems have been processed through the earth, from the core to the crust, for many millenia. During those thousands of years, each kind of gem developed its own color and structure. In fact, all crystals and gems are in constant motion.

Does any of that information matter to your clients? Probably not, but the following features will:
  • Texture: All of the gems have been tumbled, so each variety has a smooth, yet intriguing and interesting feel, providing a tactile sensation.
  • Sound: Some nail salons put marbles in a soaking dish, but the marbles can make a sharp, high-pitched sound when moved around. Gems, again due to their irregularity in shape, make a much lower, more calming sound, whether coming in contact with glass or plastic
  • Scent: You can take your services to even higher level by adding essential oils, such as Calming Lavender or Rejuvenating Eucalyptus, making your services multi-dimensional.
Be innovative and by surprising and delighting your clients with Gem Stone Mani/Pedi's today!

Nails are HOT HOT HOT - Gelish, the 21-Day Manicure!

2010 has shaped up to be the year of the nails - everything nails is hot, hot, hot! We are up for almost anything on our nails these days - bold colors, textures, and even nail art. What is most exciting are the new products to keep those nails looking hot, hot, hot for as long as possible!

As a buyer for Pure Spa Direct, I am constantly on the lookout for innovative products to help our clients grow and succeed in their businesses. A few months ago, we reviewed the CND Shellac products. As we all know, the backorder situation with Shellac has made obtaining all parts for the Shellac system extremely difficult. So, when I began hearing clients talking about Nail Harmony's GELISH products, I was off and running to find out what all the chatter was about!

Gelish is similar to Shellac in that it applies like a polish, yet wears like a gel. It's easy to apply, and the high gloss and beautiful colors make it a popular choice with most clients! Gelish boasts a 21-Day manicure - although you might want to do a fill on your clients during that time to maintain their gorgeous look.

You will be able to reach a wider client base with Gelish, as Gelish currently offers 48 polish colors, with another 48 planned for release soon. The colors range from sweet and mellow pinks, creams, and nudes to fierce and bold blacks, purples, and greens - as well as everything in between! There is a color choice for everyone - from 8 through 80, all of your clients will be satisfied!

Nail Harmony has developed a UV LED Light to cure the Gelish products in seconds instead of minutes. The LED bulbs put out virtually no heat, so there is no discomfort for your client. Also, while UV bulbs rapidly decrease in potency (which leads to problems getting your gel to cure), LED bulbs have a life of approximately 50,000 hours! You will NEVER have to change the bulbs in this light - EVER! Best of all, using the LED lamp allows you to shave up to 20 minutes of cure time from each service. As we all know, Time = Money, so faster services means more clients per day!

Another product featured in the Gelish system truly sets Gelish apart from its competitors - the Structure Gel. While Shellac is not recommended for clients with weak, peeling, or troublesome nails, Gelish has embraced these clients by offering Structure Gel. This is a clear gel you apply after the base coat to strengthen the nail and prevent peeling and breakage. While not all clients will require this step, the clients who do need it will now also be able to benefit from beautiful, glossy, long-lasting manicures!

Also, removal is a breeze. Gelish offers an acetone hybrid remover, which contains proprietary conditioning agents, so it is not harsh on your client's nails and hands. They recommend you lightly buff the gel before applying the remover to "break the seal." Whatever Gelish did not come off when I removed the cotton ball was easily removed using an orangewood stick. Simple, with virtually no damage to the nail!

All in all, Gelish is an awesome addition to any nail salon. Between the color selection, ease of application and removal, and longevity, these manicures are beautiful and designed to stay!
