Even though I can't really see my toes, I still dream about pedicures. In New York, women get mani/pedis about every week, and I just love that tradition. Going there with your best girlfriends, laughing and giggling (mostly induced by the vibrating chairs) and enjoying a therapeutic foot soak while your toesies get the royal treatment. Here in the Netherlands they haven't quite caught up to this concept, and people who touch your feet have to be licensed to do so (lucky them!) and they wear surgical gloves during the whole pedicure, which makes for a very "interesting", and sometimes painful foot rub!
Needless to say, I've gotten used to doing my own nails. And yes, I am lucky enough to have access to the best and most eco-friendly nail products on the market: Priti NYC. Usually the smell of nail polish and remover makes me gag, but I have to say, Priti NYC products don't make me gag, in fact I LOVE the smell! Something between a fruity and baby-sweet smell, I just love that I'm not inhaling toxic fumes and it's safe enough for my daughter to use as well. It's been well documented that their Priti polish wears like iron (I wore it for 10 days straight with no chipping - which included a trip to Germany, Denmark and many trade shows!) and their polish remover is a unique formula based on soy and completely non-toxic. For the girls on the go, Priti just came out with a new set of Soy Polish Remover Wipes which I am in LOVE with! Easy peasy and no mess, it's great for getting off the kids nail polish that seems to change every week. And with Halloween just around the corner, I have to say the Glow in the Dark Princess Polish is flying off the shelves and these Soy Polish Remover Wipes are just the ticket once the holidays are over (but not the fun!).
