Waterless manicure
#1
What is the best manicure system for a waterless manicure? Thanks

You can develop your own procedures and find the best product for each step . . . no "system" necessary : )

Tammy Taylor has step by step instructions for a good water-less manicure and pedicure on her website. Young Nails Lomasi products are great for water-less services. Greg Salo has a video on YouTube using them during a water-less manicure demo.

You just are not going to be soaking the nails in water- the only difference. I find that a really good cuticle remover is a key element. I use TT peach and sometimes the Aroma Spa products. Both are great.
Always be kind....you get farther.

I've been using the old CND system but I'm at the very end of the bottles and scraping the bottom. I use Young nail acrylic so I might try the Lomi Lomi. I'll check out the TT as well. Thank you.

Lomasi is great, so are the Cuccio products. I absolutely love Cuccio's apple cuticle remover - it's the best I've ever used. As the others said, you can include anything you want for a waterless mani, just don't soak. For a really great "facial for your hands" waterless service, I like Cuccio's grapeseed oil, mango hand peel, and the dermal mask.

For my basic mani [hand facial in brackets]
1) apply cuticle remover
2) file nails
3) clean up cuticles [mango hand peel, rinse with hot towel]
4) apply heavy coat of lotion & wrap hands in hot/wet towels
OR [spray with grape seed oil, brush on dermal wrap, wrap in hot towels]
5) massage
6) polish

You could also use heated mitts instead of hot towels. I think they actually have a step by step on their website.

Just one more different suggestion for you.

I found these keratin gloves at a show that we have been using, and our staff loves them and the customers love them, too. Customers ask to purchase them for home use as well.

http://www.bodipure.com - "Keratin Gloves"

They are set of very thin plastic gloves filled with cuticle cream, a moisturizer, an anti-fungal, and vitamin E, etc. all in one emulsion. You slip the gloves on your client, and when you are ready to work on the nails you snip just the tip off of the glove and work on the nails leaving the hand in the glove getting a treatment while doing so. Each set of gloves is individually wrapped. The glove sets used to come with a file and small orangewood stick, but thankfully they have eliminated them as they were of a poor quality. You can purchase the gloves by the case, individually wrapped, without the file and stick for a lesser price now.

The lotion in the gloves actually works very nicely. The hands feel great after removing the glove and doing your hand massage with the leftover emulsion from the glove. A surprisingly easy and sanitary way of providing a waterless manicure. I believe this idea for the gloves originally came from Brazil, if I remember correctly.

I went to the web site for the Keratin gloves and I only see the gloves by 1 pk. How much is it running a case and for how many? It sounds interesting. Thanks

If you sign up for an account with them, you can purchase the bulk Keratin gloves at $80.00 for a box of 100 sets of gloves - plus shipping. You can see those prices on their website once you have an account set up.
