6 Ideas for a Girls’ Spa Day

Posted by on Aug 31, 2016 in Blog, News | 0 comments

Whether you’re celebrating a holiday, a special event, or your daughter’s birthday, a spa is a luxurious treat anyone would enjoy. But taking a troop of girls to an actual spa can be expensive. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out! Here are some ways you can make a girls’ spa day in your very own home!

1. Have a foot soak

Pamper those toes with a relaxing soak in some fizzy water. Mix together one cup of baking soda, one cup citrus acid, one cup cornstarch, and 20 drops of your favorite smelling essential oil. Store the mixture in a plastic bag until you’re ready to use (do not seal; mixture produces a gas). Pour a scoop in a tub of water for the foot soak.

2. Manicures and pedicures!

Ideas for a Girls’ Spa Day

No spa day would be complete without manicures and pedicures! Display a bunch of colors of kids’ non-toxic nail polish and let the girls pick their favorites. Encourage them to mix and match. If anyone knows how to paint clever designs, enlist their help!

Pro tip: play “musical manicures” by passing colored polish bottles around the room while music plays. When the music stops, paint one nail the color that’s in your hand. Keep going until everyone has all ten fingers painted.

3. Set the mood

Every spa creates a soothing, relaxing mood for its guests. You can simulate the experience by using lamps instead of overhead lights. Throw some colored paper (usually pink) over the lamp shades to give the room a relaxing vibe. Set up a couple incense diffusers or scented candles to introduce some aromatherapy.

4. Dress for the occasion

At the spa, comfort is a priority! Instruct each girl to arrive in a bathrobe with comfortable clothing underneath. Stop by the dollar store and pick up a few stretchy headbands to give out so no one’s hair gets caught in nail polish or face masks.

5. Hair station

Put together a table filled with different hair accessories. Find anything you can, but go with lots of color. Stock it with hair ties, barrettes, brushes, mirrors, paper flowers, and anything else you think would be fun.

6. Prepare face masks

Face masks exfoliate and cleanse the skin. Afterwards, your face feels soothed and clean.  They’re also super hydrating for dry skin. Make facemasks for everyone to wear while you go through your other spa activities or just hang out. Here’s a great recipe.

Have you ever created a spa at home? How did you make it fun?

Melanie is a mom with two fancy little girls who love to have their fingernails painted. One day while painting their nails, she noticed that traditional solvent-based nail polish could eat through a foam plate. She didn’t like the idea of putting that on her girls’ nails, which inevitably end up in their mouths. She decided that any flammable substance that could eat through foam was unacceptable for her children’s fingernails. Piggy Paint was born, a non-flammable non-toxic nail polish for kids.

If your girls like to have their nails done often, you’ve probably run through all of their favorite colors… and all of their less-than-favorite colors. It’s not you or your kids have been through professional nail styling school, so how do you keep things interesting without getting too complicated?

Here are 10 and simple nail styles to give you and your kids some inspiration.

1. Animal + matching pattern

The giraffe print pattern is pretty cool on its own, but the little giraffe avatar gives the set a nice touch.

9. Rainbows and clouds

This one is really simple, but what’s awesome about is that if you use a few extra coats on the clouds, you can give it some depth, as if the rainbow is behind it. 3D nails!

How to Care for Your Child’s Nails

Posted by on Aug 30, 2016 in Blog, News | 0 comments

how to take care of child's nailsTaking care of our nails is very important to us and it’s important that we pass on this knowledge to our kids so they maintain good hygiene and always have healthy, beautiful nails. It may not seem like a big deal, but nails are a big part of your appearance just like your face and hair. Taking care of them shows that we care for ourselves, inwardly and outwardly.

Always put care into cleaning and trimming your child’s fingernails so when they are old enough to do it themselves they will always make it part of their routine.

1. Wash your hands

Washing your hands throughout the day it the first step towards taking care of your nails. Washing your child’s hands will help to fight off germs and clean the dirt from underneath fingernails. Teach your child to always wash hands after the bathroom, after coming in from outside, and before eating.

2. Keep them trim

For young children we always want to keep nails short and trim so that they will stay cleaner and won’t break. It’s easiest to trim nails after a bath as the nails are softer then but you can also wait until your child is asleep if she is fussy. Using a nail clipper, cut fingernails rounded at the corners and then mostly straight across. Rough edges can be smoothed with an emery board.

3. Use natural nail polish

If your children love to paint nails, make sure you use a natural, toxic-free nail polish like Piggy Paint that is safe to use. Other nail polishes use chemicals that give off harsh fumes and contain harmful toxins. These aren’t just bad for kids – they’re bad for teens and adults as well.

4. Eat healthy foods

There are many foods that contain specific vitamins that help keep your nails healthy and strong. Make sure your child gets plenty of protein and vitamin B7 which can be found in foods like meat, milk, almonds, eggs and fish.

5. Get rid of hangnails

If your child has a hangnail, don’t let him bite or tear it off as this can lead to an infection. Instead, wash his hands with soap and use a nail clipper to cut it off.
