Zig Zag Nail Art by Kelly Jean Collana
It’s no secret that over the last few years nail art has gone mainstream. What started as a niche look that most of us couldn’t pull off has evolved into something so popular that women of every age — even dedicated French Manicure-wearers — are giving it a go. And really, what’s classier than chic nail designs? Schedule an appointment and test drive the trend yourself!

The Hot List: PRETTY PEDICURES. Perfect, polished toes are a key summer accessory. THE ULTIMATE. You’ll be spoiled with a mask, scrub and massage during Rescue Rittenhouse Spa’s Ultimate Pedicure. We also love Rescue’s polish collection, including fashion-forward colors from Deborah Lippmann, Chanel and Essie.
With all the innovations for your face your hands are the culprits that will give away your age. Just like your face, your hands need care and protection. No worries, there are a couple of simple steps you can take to help maintain the youthful appearance of those over worked phalanges.
Exfoliating at least 2-3 times a week is a great way to remove dead skin and let a new radiant layer shine through. One of my favorite exfoliators is the One Minute Manicure. It has over 7 different oils combined with dead sea salt which makes for one effective yet gentle & hydrating exfoliant.
The care starts with exfoliation then continues with moisturizing. Carrying a portable bottle of hand cream with you is essential. Since you’re always using your hands they dry out relatively quickly. Also, being good about hydrating them will aid with dry cuticles and brittle nails. If you don’t have a favorite hand cream already, I’d suggest Deborah Lippmann’s Rich Girl Anti-Aging Hand & Cuticle Cream with SPF 25. Its always nice to have a moisturizer with SPF because not only does it hydrate it also protects you from skin damaging sun rays.
And last of all, you should always wear gloves when you step outside. Even if its for just a minute, because frigid air really takes a toll on your hands.
Pretty simple, right? Exfoliate, moisturize & protect three painless routines to keep your hands as ageless as your face.
