Spring's 5 Hottest Nail Colors
Ever since I was a little girl, wearing nail polish and going to the nail salon has been a special treat - it's like an hour of blissful and mindless pampering. One of my favorite things to do is to get my nails done in brighter colors - a change from the darker colors I wear in the winter. Spring is definitely in the air and thank goodness warmer weather is upon us!
I recently visited MiniLuxe, a chain nail and beauty lounge that prides itself on cleanliness and the use of less toxic polishes (avoiding the 3 worst). Although simple, their concept is pretty interesting in that they have a “clean lab” where tools are sterilized. They also take special care not to cross contaminate when it comes to the pedicure tubs.
What I like most about MiniLuxe is their use of 6-Free and 8-Free polishes. Why is this important? Not only does the nail polish become absorbed in your skin but think of all they ways your fingers come in contact with your mouth (eating, brushing your teeth, etc). The list of toxins in nail polish is pretty shocking - hence why it's so important to try and use polishes that are free of most of those nasty toxins. As we try to take care of what goes into our bodies, we need to also be cognizant of what is absorbed through our skin and nails.
My favorite MiniLuxe service is their Performance Polish manicure/pedicure which wears like gel and removes like a regular polish and dries in 5 minutes. Yes, 5 minutes. No LED lights to place your hands under, no sprays, nothing. In 5 minutes, you get up, dig into your purse for your keys and you’re good to go. Bonus: it can last up to 2 weeks - just like gel... Now that’s my kind of mani/pedi!
During my visit, I learned what the hottest colors were for Spring this year:
From left to right: MiniLuxe 8-Free Signature Polish: Casablanca, Twilight, Love Story (my personal favorite) Breakfast at Tiffany's, and St. Barts.
I can't wait to try these colors throughout the season! Let me know what your favorite spring color is this year!
