Northwest Nail Retreat!!



This is my second year attending the northwest nail retreat, and my experience was just as amazing as the first time I went! The camp is located on Vashon Island in Seattle. It is surrounded by woods, water, and lots of wild life. It is just beautiful!

I got the chance to compete in my first nail competition, it was scary putting my work out in front of over a hundred of my peers, but I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone because I learned so much! My co-worker Terrie was my model, and I placed 13th in the novice category. I think I did well for my first competition, and most importantly, I learned a lot from it.

I took many different classes and learned to improve some of my techniques for my clients, which is so important to me. Some of the teachers really stood out and I am going to be incorporating their training. Vickie Peters taught a Master Gel Polish Class and taught techniques to keep gel polish from lifting which is so great, because as gel polish has grown in popularity, it is important to learn and grow with our products to offer our clients the very best service. Another exciting thing was that I became certified in IBX. I learned about this great product last year at camp, and I've been working with it since then, but now I know I can actually help to fix my clients peeling, and or ridged nails and all different kinds of damage to the nail plate. I can't wait to attend more camps in the future, because I had such a blast and I truly love nails!

Ready to change your haircolor?



When it comes to hair color, nothing's as simple as black and white. Lucky for you, we know a thing or two about getting the perfect color for you! A great haircut and haircolor can make you feel great.

Need inspiration? Watch the stars – If you are struggling to find a color that fills you with excitement, buy yourself a celebrity magazine and see what the stars are doing. Celebrities spend thousands of dollars every month on Stylists just so they can stay on the edge of the latest hair trends. Color for the season - One way of guaranteeing you are always in style is matching your hair color to the season. If it’s summer, go as light as you dare and don’t be afraid to try big bold colors. In fall and spring, it’s all about warm natural looking colors, and in the winter the darker you are prepared to go the better. Radical change - Ready to step out of your comfort zone? One of the boldest and most daring moves you can do is a complete color transformation. Are you a blonde? Why not trying a sleek black look, or for you sultry brunettes, why not try a bright red look? A radical change might be enough to leave you shaking in your shoes, but it’s often these big hair color changes that can leave us feeling our best.

Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis hair removal is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. It does require multiple sessions to achieve best possible results, but permanent hair removal isn't 100% guaranteed for everyone. How Does it Work? An electric current is applied with a very fine needle-shaped electrode, or metal probe into each hair follicle to destroy the root. Hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding. Because all of the hair isn't on the same stage at any given time, multiple sessions are needed to get the hair in the growth phase for electrolysis hair removal to be most effective- just like laser hair removal. The Pros It has the best track record. Electrolysis has the best overall results, versus any other method, in ridding hair for long periods of time- or even permanently. Many different hair and skin types can benefit. Because it doesn't target hair pigment (color) like laser, but attacks the follicle itself. People that aren't good candidates for laser can still get electrolysis. The Cons Bent follicles can make electrolysis hair removal harder. Previous waxing or tweezing can make hair follicles bent or misshapen, and getting the needle to the root more difficult to destroy the follicle. Multiple treatments are needed. You have to truly be committed to electrolysis because you will need anywhere from 15 - 30 sessions, which will take up a considerable amount of your time.
