Nails are now more fun than ever.  The Catwalks dazzled with orange and blue hues.  Yellow flirted its way down the runways, while the nude nail still made its subtle yet chic statement.  Yet  there is still room for retro popping midnight blues, hot pinks, minty cool hues and rock n' roll striking multi-coloured tips, alongside forest greens.  It is a wide and virtuous rainbow palette for this season.

Tangerine Dream, Citrus Shades burst into fashion for Spring/Summer and orange takes the spotlight for nails.  Fresh zesty and confident, choose tangerine shades to headline your look this season.

Playing it Cool, while the weather heats up (fingers crossed), keep your style cool with baby shades of water blue, minty green and soft lilac.  For sweet spring days and dusky sunset evenings, these romantic shades are the perfect choice.

Minx is a solid film with an adhesive backing that is heat activated.  The heat gives Minx the conformability to fit over the compound curve of a nail & seals the film onto the nail bed.  The patented material that Minx is made of can easily be removed with heat.

For a dazzling fashion statement, this is a new trend hitting the nail salons!  Having crystals applied to your nails or toes is becoming very popular and looks great, especially for those who like their bling!  It is a long process to have them put on, as each crystal is individually applied, but it is well worth it, if you like being pampered and being the most glamourous & trend setting girl around !

Callus Peel


A busy and active lifestyle can lead to a build-up of hard skin and calluses on the foot.  A Callus is an area of thickened, hard skin, usually found over a bony area of your foot, on your heel or on the ball of your foot.  It can range from being aesthetically displeasing to being so painful that it restricts your choice of footwear and activity.

The Callus Peel product will leave your feet soft and feeling rejuvenated.  It is applied to the problem areas,  allowing calluses to be scraped away quickly.
The four step treatment gives results that you can see straight away.  From arrival to leaving, the whole treatment will take no longer than 45 minutes in total and you will be amazed to see the difference Callus Peel can make.  If the calluses are extreme, you may need a second treatment in a fortnight's time or even a course of 3 treatments.

Callus Peel is safe & hygienic - each patch is wrapped individually and contains only natural products.  The scraper to remove the calluses is made fro plastic, so "Blade Free", there is no cutting of the skin.

  • A Callus Peel patch is wrapped around the area to be treated and held in place by wrapping with cling film
  • After approximately 10-15 minutes the wrapping and patch are removed, exposing the softened Keratin.  This is then scraped away using a plastic tool especially designed for safe and easy use.
  • Once the bulk of the callus has been removed, the area is polished with a foot file.
  • A moisturising conditioner is then applied to the treated area to rejuvenate and deodorise the newly exposed skin.
The treatment of callus on the feet will vary according to the individual.   Both heels and soles may require treatment.  If the calluses are extreme you may need a second treatment in a fortnight's time or even a course of 3 treatments.

Please note:-  This treatment cannot be undertaken if feet are cracked and bleeding (open wound), or if you have any infectious ailments e.g. athletes foot. Additionally, pregnant and diabetic clients are not able to have this treatment without the express written permission from their GP

Paraffin Wax Treatments

Physicians have long known that paraffin therapy is a veritable way to speed healing and soothe muscle and joint pain.  In fact, the healing qualities of paraffin wax therapy have been known for paraffin therapy is quite common and widely used to help conditions such as the following:-

Arthritis, Bursitis, Eczema, Fibromyalgia, Fibrositis, Inflammation, Muscle Spasms, Overworked/Fatigued Muscles, Psoriasis, Scar Tissue, Stiff Joints, Tendonitis, Tennis Elbow & more.

One of the overlooked benefits of paraffin therapy is that it soothes and moisturises the skin, opens pores, increases circulation and promotes a sense of calm in the patient/client.

Paraffin wax occurs naturally as a component of crude mineral oils.  Paraffin wax is produced by refining or separating the wax out of the crude mineral oils.  It is then purified through boiling and then chilled and pressed through a filter which creates a heavy oil, or paraffin wax.  Paraffin wax has been laboratory tested to be hygienically safe to use.  It is colourless, tasteless, odourless and extremely heavy in molecular structure. 

Scent is added to make the wax more appealing.  Since the wax is heaving in molecuclar weight, it increases the blood supply to the area being treated and traps moisture from underlying layers of the skin, resulting in rejuvenated and nourished skin.  Paraffin therapy reduces pain and stiffness around the joints by removing excess fluid from surrounding tissue whilst providing lubrication.

Paraffin treatments are not recommended for people with the following conditions:-  

Hypertension, Diabetes, Varicose Veins
