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.

Summer Beauty Series from the Spa at PGA Tip #2: Fight the Sun’s Damaging Effects


Tanning during the summer is incredibly relaxing, but the sun can take a serious toll on your skin. So how can we get that summer glow and still take care of our skin?

According to Paula Taylor, leading massage therapist from the Spa at PGA National, a skin care regime is vital in order to obtain that healthy summer tan. “In order to prolong your tan and keep your skin soft, frequent exfoliation and moisturizer are essential, ” Taylor said.

Sugar scrubs are a sweet way to exfoliate your skin during the summer time. “Sugar scrubs based in coconut oil do both by deeply penetrating the skin with the hydration that dry skin craves,” Taylor said.

The Spa at PGA National offers several exfoliation services in a relaxing environment to keep your skin looking healthy and smooth. So, come check out the Spa’s retail boutique for a wide selection of skin care products for purchase.

The Spa After Dark event at The Spa at PGA National

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Wednesday, July 20th about 200 locals including my husband and me enjoyed a fun filled event at The Spa at PGA National.  Attendees enjoyed a Latin-themed event that featured multiple beauty demonstrations, live entertainment, refreshments and several vendors showing off their retail products lines all carried at The Spa.

My husband and I gained some great insight on fillers like Botox and Juvederm in a conversation with Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Frederic M.Barr. Dr Barr demonstrated on an actual patient how the Juvederm fillers can benefit clients. Results were apparent immediately, as his patient received injections in her eye and lip area.  Dr. Barr happily answered all our questions in regards to Botox and went into great detail of its safety and benefits. Dr. Barr now offers his medical spa services weekly at the Spa at PGA National at reasonable prices.

My husband and I headed out to the outdoor area where the Spa’s Waters of the Worlds mineral pools are where we were offered appetizers and sipped on our cocktails as we listened to Latin music. We were entertained by Zumba performances that took place in a couple locations poolside throughout the evening. Esther Sierra taught a live class and showed other guests how to salsa
the night away while we watched and enjoyed the beat of music with a Latin flair.

Indoors, we  had a chance to be educated on several product lines like Moroccan Oil, Epicuren, Phytomer and Clarisonic. I watched as a Jane Iredale Make up Artist gave a guest a complimentary makeovers. Representatives from several upscale beauty products not only answered questions but allowed me and other guests to try products. I personally have never gotten a chance to sample some of the products like Epicuren, a pure skin care line using only luxurious natural ingredients.

Multiple open bars featured Blue Hawaiian cocktails, wine, beer and full liquor service while servers walked around the Waters of the World outdoor area with delicious food offerings. Menu items included Latin favorites, ceviche, empanadas, mini Cuban sandwiches and papa rellenas.

Silent Auctions featured items like a Moroccan Oil Gift set, A Epicuren Gift basket, A Pure Fiji Gift Set and Jewelry. The auction proceeds and a portion of tickets sales were donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  And the retail boutique offered
a generous 10% discount to all guests for that night only.

After we enjoyed a couple hours at the event we topped the night off with an enjoyable dining experience at i-bar. The resort’s lobby bar and lounge area offers a full menu. We had a chance to enjoy a scrumptious dinner there. We tried the Snapper Ceviche, appe-tini and for our main course, Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches and Crabcake Sandwiches which were both delicious.

If you missed out on this exciting event don’t forget The Spa at PGA National offers the Waters of the World pools which is an exclusive spa amenity available only at this local spa.  Be sure to visit The Spa website for more information.
