If you remember the commercial with the tagline “Calgon, take me away,” you can get some Calgon if you visit the website — click here. Yes, it’s the bubble bath and more. The site has products from $2 to $13. I feel more relaxed just talking about it.
Nail that great gift
Who doesn’t love a manicure and pedicure? No one can fix my cuticles and give me a professional look like the professionals can. My daughter and I did both last weekend. Sarah at Headcases on West 38th Street gave us gel manicures with some nail art. I got gold glitter on my ring fingernail, and my daughter got polka dots. Adding one nail of art is pretty cool.
On Sunday, we popped on over to Happy Nails in the K-Mart plaza for pedicures. A professional manicure or pedicure is one great gift. If you don’t know where to buy the gift of a manicure or pedicure for the one you want to gift, check out salons near his or her home or workplace. Make it easy. I have had my nails done at salons from downtown Erie to Waterford to North East and out in Albion. I have never been to a salon I didn’t love. And pedicures are one of the best gifts I have ever given myself. Your legs feel like new. And they look good too! I’ve gotten manicures for under $20 and pedicures for $25 and up. Depends on what you want and where you go. Ask first.
Like most women, I can’t always get to a salon and often need a quick fix on my hands and feet. OPI is one brand that never fails me. The company has some pretty cool holiday gift sets like the one in the picture. I like all the colors. Purple, red, champagne glitter and neutral creme. I have tons of nail lacquer, but my OPI top coat is the best.
One tip we heard recently is to give your nails a break from color for a few weeks to maintain the health of the nails. Gift sets like the one at left are $49.95. OPI says the kit is available in a lot of places, but I didn’t see it yet. If you want it, go to Ulta.com – the link takes you directly to the OPI set. Smaller gift packs are available for $15.95.
