Lady Spa Spa Loves It: Clarisonic’s new Pedi Sonic Foot Transformation

Pedi_1000x1000_Pedi_KitNow you can pamper those tootsies daily with the newest and latest technology from Clarisonic. The Sonic Foot Smoothing System known as Pedi just hit stores last month and is making waves.  I know for a fact that Clarisonic’s new Pedi Sonic Foot Transformation system works miracles because I tested it out on my husbands dry, rough  and might I say Yucky callused feet for starters. In three easy steps his feet were left buffed, hydrated and no longer dry and crusty. The result was smooth, soft and moisturized feet and toes. This transformation happened in just three easy steps.

1) Step one I used the Pedi Smoothing Disc on the dry feet to buff away the dryness for about one minute. You can kind of consider this similar to a sanding device. You could literally see the white dust which is the dry skin coming off  in the air.

2) Step two Pedi-Buff treatment used in conjunction with the  Wet/Dry Buffing Brush Head: I wet the brush head and then used a  quarter-sized amount of Pedi-Buff on  the feet, then used the moistened Pedi Wet/Dry Buffing Brush Head to massage into skin for 2 minutes on each foot.

3) Next, I rinsed off any excess product from the wet/dry brush head and applied the Pedi-Boost to each foot followed by the Pedi-Balm product a few minutes later.

My husband is the type of guy that needs to invest in a pedicure every so often to get rid of the dryness and get his feet in shape for sandals but with this new tool there really would be no need to spend the money on a professional pedicure. His feet were left smooth and looked like he just left the salon.. No more visible dryness or white areas on his heels or big toe.

Clarisonic’s new Pedi Sonic Foot Transformation system is another great DIY tool for those in between visits to the spa or for those who just plain like to do their own at home pedicures and not bother with monthly pedis. Make it part of your daily regime or an intensive treatment for those bouts where its been a while and you just have not had the time for a professional pedicure. For the $199 price tag for the system you are getting the base, the wet/dry buffing brush, the smoothing disc, and three products: Pedi-Buff which is an exfoliant, Pedi-Balm which is a light lotion, and Pedi-Boost a peel that contains lactic and glycollic acid to slough and remove dead skin cells.

Summer Beauty Tip # 3: Use Gel Manicure & Pedicure for Summer Travels

ImageThis summer everyone is going to get their GEL manicure and pedicure right before they leave for vacations! Acrylic nails are a thing of the past, and now it’s all about getting the gel manicure and pedicure.

Gel has been trending for quite some time because it offers so many great benefits. The Gel lasts for about two to three weeks, which is conveniently the amount of time for a summer vacation. You can leave right after and even go swimming without damaging it!

The Spa at PGA National offers Gel manicure and pedicures with the OPI GelColor line. Angie Rawlins Nail Technician from the Spa at PGA National highly recommends using the Gel for your summer manicure and pedicure.

“Normally you have to wait at least a half hour for your nails to dry with a regular manicure, but with the Gel manicure or pedicure you can leave as soon as possible,” Rawlins said.


Once you get back from your summer travels, it’s very important to make the second appointment for soaking off the gel. The “soak off” normally takes anywhere between 10-15 minutes. “Peeling off the gel by yourself will dry off your nail because you’re also peeling off little layers of your nails when the gel is being removed,” Rawlins said.

So, make sure to stop by the Spa at PGA National for all of your Gel manicure & pedicure needs!


P.S. If you’re having trouble with picking out a color, just remember that bright and florescent are totally in this summer. Any kind of neon or bright gel color will make compliment your summer tan.

12 New Shades From Shellac

Say hello to 12 new shades of Shellace

This month Shellac addicts everywhere will rejoice as CND (Creative Nail Design, inc.) launches twelve new shades expanding the line to 24 colors in their collection.

For those of you who have not had a chance to try out Shellac, it is a professional salon service and cannot be bought in stores. It was revolutionary to the nail industry because the product offers a flawless, glossy manicure with a mirror finish that does not nick, chip, smudge or smear like your average everyday nail color.

Shellac’s May 2010 launch had the nail industry in a frenzy. According to CND, within one month of its introduction, Shellac sold out four times over.  Other benefits to the product line are it is hypo-allergenic and 3-Free (no formaldehyde, toluene or DBP). The product leaves a brilliant shiny finish with maintenance-free wear and safely removes in 10-minutes. 

This holiday season go Hollywood red or Masquerade burgundy on your next salon visit. Prices generally range from $25-45 for manicures and  $40-60 for pedicures depending on location.  Local Palm Beach Spas and salons everywhere offer Shellac. Visit the Salon Locator at cnd.com to see if your favorite Palm Beach area spa/salon is offering this modern-must and you will never go back to regular old nail polish again!
