CND Vinylux

Nothing says class quite like perfect nails, and for busy moms that can be a hard task to accomplish. Why not nail it for New Years? CND Shellac is amazing for those vacations where you need a couple of weeks without chips, but sometimes Moms don’t have time to make it back to the salon in order to remove the awesome polish as it grows out. Enter Vinylux. This polish is a mix between gel and normal chippy polish. (BTW CND Vinylux does come in the same colours if you are in a bind). And we’re working with CND to do a New Year’s giveaway so that you can look your best while saving a chunk of salon time.

Canada only (excl Quebec.) Ends 12/25. Please fill out the rafflecopter form to enter and good luck!!

Can I Use Nail Polish While I am Pregnant?

FAM, pregnancy By April 22, 2011 Tags: , , , , 1 Comment

Your first pregnancy is always full of questions and anxiety: what’s normal? What can and can’t I do? It’s nice to have some concrete facts to go by. This one’s pretty easy: The answer to ‘can I use nail polish while I am pregnant‘ is yes.

According to the Organization of Teratology Information Services (OTIS, they study and release information on substances and practices that could cause birth defects or harm developing babies), it’s fine, just be wise.  Heck, go all out and get yourself a mani-pedi, because once you hit the middle of the second trimester you’ll be lucky to be able to see your feet, much less be able to contort yourself around the curve of your baby belly to paint your own toenails, right? At least then you’ll know they’re presentable without having to use a handheld mirror to check!
