Nails for this Season

Nails are currently a big thing! They are also a popular addition to spa days, so it’s good for us to be aware of current trends and demands. 

We all like to have lovely looking, soft, summer feet, and the industry is seeing a growing demand for results-driven treatments. Treatments such as Callus Peels are very popular and also make a simple upgrade to any pedicure. These treatments generally include the application of patches to the feet to deeply exfoliate using Salicylic acid. 

If we think of trends this year, it’s been all about mermaids and unicorns, with that come to the shimmery metallic colours, glitters and summer brights, which are all causing a big stir. At the forefront of the summer, brights are bolder colours such as yellows, oranges, blues and greens.

A podiatrist with an expert-led hand and foot range of products, Margaret Dabbs has been dubbed ‘Britain’s Queen of fabulous feet’. Margaret and her team have a regular presence at the UK Spa Association events, so we thought we’d take a look at the range of offerings during this season’s demands. With Margaret’s extensive knowledge, the pedicure treatments and products are very results-driven, giving a perfect, smooth, finish that leaves clients wowed. 

The nail colours at Margaret Dabbs have been exciting us greatly! We are loving the summer brights of Daffodil, Chrysanthemum, Echinacea, Periwinkle and Spearmint, and the shimmery metallics of Sugar Rose Gold, Edelweiss, Silverbell and Cherry Blossom. 

The addition of glitters and nail art are back with a bang, so it’s good for us to keep our therapists up to date and interested in what’s hot. Extra nail art training courses are available through many providers, such as CND who can give added skills, tips and tricks. This helps keep the team interested and the clients showing off your ‘on trend’ work 

Don’t forget that nails are also perfect to show off on your social media and gain extra interest and visibility.
