It may sound strange to you to hear me say “waterless pedicure”!
How can you have a pedicure without soaking your feet? How do you remove the non living tissue from the nail plate?
That can’t be sanitary can it?
Well, yes you can and yes it is!
Safe T Nails is a complete package that allows you to give (or get) either a manicure or pedicure without the use of water. One time use, with the implements to file your nails, push your cuticle back and moisturize your hands or feet.
The Safe-T Nails Pedicure Kit is an exclusive line of waterless pedicure kits that are 100% disposable, imported from Brazil, and used by Safe-T Nails customers worldwide.
Here is a step by step. That I got finished in 10 minutes. And these toe nails needed some love. (sorry the picture is blurry)
Get your package!
The package as you receive it.
Unwrap your goods. There is a file and a wooden pusher and a little baggy with two “booties” filled with Safe T Nails exclusive Active Cream. The Active Cream is antiseptic, anti-fungual and anti-inflammatory. All of these items are one time, disposable items.
The package contents
Put on your little booties and hang out for about three minutes.
Hang out with you feet in the booties
Use the wooden pusher to split open the baggie to reveal your toes.
Revealing the toes
Using the wooden pusher, gently push back around the cuticle area. This is quite easy as the Active Cream loosens the non living tissue very well.
Using the enclosed towel, wipe away the remaining Active Cream and this is the final result.
I didn’t do any nipping of loose non living tissue so you could see the end result before complete beautification.
Here’s where I would place Safe T Nails. I would sell them in my salon. For people that are travelling and want to take care of their finger and toe nails while away.
Or, if I had a small space where I didn’t have access to water, I would happily use these.
California Nail (or other states with limited water issues) could use these to keep “Green”
So, as you know I do a ton of nail art. Maybe you didn’t know I did it on myself. Well, because I am taking off polish up to three times a day, I found my cuticles were getting very dry and ragged.
So I wanted to tell you about my TreNique Trick #2.
Awhile ago, I found a “Indie” company out of Florida called TreNique. They carry very pretty polishes, hand scrubs and butters as well as this wonderful cuticle oil. The cuticle oil works so well for me when I am doing marathon nail art sessions because it contains tea tree oil and lavender.
Tea Tree and Lavender Cuticle Oil – TreNique
The tea tree oil has ingredients in it that may kill bacteria and fungus. Plus, it helps reduce allergic skin reactions!
Not only does the lavender smell delicious it helps soothe my cuti’s!
So, I use it before any removal process. This may also be a good thing for you to do for your clients before removing their polish. It lets them know you care about their skin as well as their nails!
Today’s post will show the benefits of how both men and women, can and should, take care of their hands (and feet of course).
I took some pics of a fellow who likes his hands to be nice. He struggles with dry skin and cuticle areas. So for him it helps to stop the dryness and to keep his nails and cuticle moisturized. (This also stops him from pulling at dry skin around his nails.)
Fred was good enough to let me take a couple of shots to share with you the difference from start to finish with his MANicure!
Fred uses his hands like most men. A little rough on his poor digits!
As you can see, there is some really dry area’s around his cuticles.
A regular manicure for Fred and with a little TLC and some good products (I use OPI Avoplex Exfoliating Cuticle Treatment) his cuticles are looking better already!
A quick trim and file to round out the edges of his nails gives his nail a clean tidy appearance.
Then a nice buff with OPI’s Shiner file to give his nails a glass like finish (without the bother of polish).
Who wouldn’t enjoy having a glass of wine poured by these nicely clean, trimmed and buffed hands and nails?
Thank goodness he figured out how to open the wine without a cork screw!
Just kidding Fred! Thank you for letting me post these pics. It’s good to see men taking care of themselves.
