The weather has taken a turn for the beautiful in Montreal (which doesn’t happen too often) and I’ve got nothing but summer on the brain. I actually just booked a last-minute-trip to Punta Cana, too so beaches, sandals and everything summer are all I can think about today.
Yesterday, I realized my toesies weren’t exactly beach-ready. I called Coiffure de Neuville salon in Montreal to see if Marilyne Gerbeau (THE biosculpture gel expert) could squeeze me in for an emergency pedi. Thankfully, she was able to. I got a gel pedicure, which is certainly no ordinary pedicure.
Instead of nail polish, I had biosculpture gel placed on my toe nails. Don’t confuse this with resin gel which can damage your natural nails. Think of biosculpture as a very thick layer of nail polish that won’t chip, crack or peel off. Plus, you don’t have to wait for it to dry. The gel dries under a UV lamp for two minutes and then you’re ready to go. I put my socks back on immediately after without a problem. I even had a cute little picture stamped on it.
This pedicure is a great option for anyone who (like me) is too impatient to wait for polish to dry and who doesn’t want to redo their toe polish every two weeks. The next best part is that this pedicure lasts six to eight weeks, depending on how quickly your nails grow. During that time, the colour on your nails won’t fade or chip, even if you happen to go on vacation and swim in salt water (which normally yellows the nails). So you basically only need to have the pedi done twice a year and you’ll have shiny, picture-perfect toe nails all summer long.
Marilyne charges $45 at Coiffure de Neuville in Anjou for the biosculpture gel pedicure. For more information, call De Neuville at 514-353-8800.
Now all I have to do pack and I’m off for some fun in the sun this Thursday morning. Don’t worry, I’ll still have plenty of blogs to keep you entertained while I’m away.
