I have a themed pedicure service each month. Many of my clients are looking forward to the Mermaid Delight Pedicure. I use many Bella Lucce products to create a luxurious experience. The pedicure products are placed on shells to add to the experience. I use a fresh ocean scent in my warmer to create the right mood. The client soaks her feet in Bella Lucce's Mineral Salt Soak which is made from Dead Sea Salts. After, nail and cuticle grooming I apply Callus Eliminator and place feet in baggies for extra warmth. I remove the calluses with Feet First Buffing Pads and then smooth the skin with Bella Lucce's Norwegian Oceanic Salt Rub. Rinse and next apply Bella Lucce's Sea Kelp and Green Tea Mask and let client relax for 10 minutes with a beverage of choice. Remove mask with warm moist towels and do a lengthy foot and leg massage. Follow with polish application or pedicure may begin with mermaid color Rockstar toe application.
My favorite has to be Vanilla Colada Spa Treatment. A tropical treat for the mind and body~! Beginning with a luxurious soak in a foot bath infused with Coconut Vanilla Rock Salt. This softening, hydrating foot bath treatment contains Coconut Vanilla extract and Camphor for a refreshing feeling. Next the Coconut Vanilla Sugar Scrub is enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamins A and E to help soften and polish the skin. Sugar is a soft and finer exfoliant, gentle enough to use on the feet, hands and body. A creme mask follows creating a warm sensation when applied to enhance the spa experience. It is enriched with coconut and shea butter to relieve dry skin and sesame oils to moisturize and soften the skin. Last but not least a deep foot massage with Coconut Vanilla Body Lotion, specially formulated for dry skin and intense therapy healing. Made with Aloe, Avocado, Grapeseed Oil and Vitamin A & E, this moisturizing lotion is a perfect end to this delicious spa treat. Serve with Vanilla Chai Tea for complete retreat!
My favorite fun pedicure to offer is a "Champagne Grape Peel" utilizing products from Keyano Aromatics. This pedicure can be such an indulgent escape for clients. I serve a glass of champagne with it, which clients love. This pedicure includes a grape peel mask which is an active enzyme infusion and hydrates, smooths, as well as brightens the skin. This service can be offered at a premium price and has become a favorite with many of my clients.
