Prepare Your Feet For Summer Sandals With Bliss

pedicures leeds
Sandal season is officially here, but if you're anything like us your feet didn't get the memo. Not to worry - you can prepare your winter feet for summer sandals in no time with these easy tips...
1. Replenish your feet after wearing nail polish. Nail varnish can be damaging, so never keep it on for longer than two weeks, remove thoroughly ASAP, then enjoy a foot bath with warm water and a handful of salt. Dry your feet off and buff the nails, then gently apply almond oil.

2. Treat hard and dry skin. Of course, we all know we need to do this and are just forever searching for the best way. Begin by using a good foot file to remove dead skin and leave your feet smooth. Next, exfoliate your feet to remove dry skin. Complete with a moisturiser specifically for feet, to soften the skin more. Repeat at least once every two weeks to keep your feet lovely throughout summer, and moisturise as much as once per day.

3. Use fleecy web in new sandals to prevent them from rubbing and therefore causing blisters or cuts. Place against any part of the shoe that's too close to the foot to stop friction. This great hack will mean you can wear your new sandals all summer.
4. Always use a base coat when painting your finer or toe nails to add a layer of protection your feet will thank you for!
This month we're offering you a luxurious CND manicure and pedicure with polish, for only £35! Buy online only, and be quick!

Blissful News. Oh, and Must-Experience Elemis Pedis   

11 Jun 2015

We've been awarded five stars from GLAMOUR magazine and received rave reviews from Harpers Bazaar magazine for our tanning services, now TripAdvisor has awarded us a Certificate of Excellence for consistently achieving excellent feedback from clients. Naturally, June has kicked off with a sizzle! Thank you so much to our loyal customer base and explorative new clients who keep coming back for more beautifying treatments and pampering sessions.

We can proudly announce our Luxury Spa Day competition winner is Lisa M Smith from Leeds. She will be booked in for a day long session of premium treatments in one of our five top salon destinations. We hope you have a wonderful time, Lisa and become a regular at Bliss.

Our more observant customers will notice an array of shiny new bottles on our vast shelves of juicy gel and nail enamel colours. Cue, introducing the Extended Wear Lacquer, Ever Glaze. Last up to ten days and removes with nail varnish. It's a hard wearing, chip resistant nail colour paint that is hardy and ultra glossy. Ask our professional nail techs for the colour portfolio. You'll never look back.

Oh yes, we offer lots of decadent spa pedicures at Bliss but at the moment, we cannot get enough of using the Frangipani Monoi, Elemis oils on legs, feet and toes to get you all beach ready (or sandals in the city!). This Elemis oil nourishes, conditions and softens the skin to superior silkiness. With active ingredients of exotic Frangipani and coconut oil, it penetrates the epidermis and restores moisture, leaving a airbrush-effect look. We drizzle this deluxe oil onto freshly pedicured feet and massage it into the legs and deliver a pressure-point rub to soothe aching muscles. Heavenly rating? Off the scale! Book now for one of our expertly trained therapists to give you the Elemis experience at Bliss. Your pedicure can include a gel or enamel paint finish (with Swarovski crystals if your wardrobe so suits).

Ingredients in the Frangipani Monoi products include: Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Plumeria Rubra Flowers, Fragrance (Parfum), Amyl cinnamal, 7-hydroxycitronellal, Benzyl-o-hydroxybenzoate, Linalool, Limonene, Lilial.

 

READ more about our float-away Elemis facials, massages and treatments here.

We recommend the Visible Brilliance Facial that is ideal pre major event or photoshoot because it revives the skin's glow factor by 100%! Plus, moisture levels are clinically proven to increase by up to 61% and elasticity by up to 40% after 1 wonderfully, relaxing treatment. This treatment is one of our favourites because it includes a micro-circulatory massage with a 2-phase amino active mask. This firms and plumps the skin so that your make-up will sit on red carpet-ready skin. Complete the treatment with a Airbase Airbrush Makeover or try our HD Brows Make-Up range for a Hollywood standard finish.

Bliss offers the Elemis Spa @ Home range so you take this delicious treatment range home with you, so that every day can be totally magical.

Brows, Being Busy & Hot Reviews   

26 May 2015

Following on from our exciting Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor for consistently 5-star reviews from you, our fabulous customers... The Bliss beauty team have been walking on air! With the phone ringing off of the hook and clients delighted with the new 3D Lipo treatment we offer, it's been quite a month.

The nail bar at Bliss on Street Lane

We've been busy with our luxury almond pedicures, gel-paint services and dreamy manicures to get everyone prepped for the summer season. With a huge variety of colours to choose from, pop by your local Bliss salon to get your talons sorted for those summer sandals. Did you know that we offer diamante and nail art extras for each nail service? Ask one of the team for ideas and recommendations to suit your wardrobe.

Jodi is at-the-ready to perfect your brows using the multi-faceted HD Brows service, that incorporates threading, waxing, tweezing, shaping, cutting and tinting to achieve the perfect finish.

"Eyebrows are meant to be sisters, not twins,' says Jodi. "It looks unnatural to have identical brows, so using the HD Brows treatment service I can achieve brilliant results that really suit the client." HD Brows is 7-step service that yields outstanding results after just one appointment. The Bliss team recommend having a course of three to get A-list level results. Ideally, grow in your brows for a couple of weeks before your appointment. Following on from a consultation with one of our eyebrow specialists, a beauty therapist will custom-mix the right tint for you. Following on from the tint, the eyebrow is shaped with waxing and threading precision. Any stray hairs are tweezed and where necessary, areas that need further growth are strategically considered. A perfect pre-holiday treatment and is a great accompanying appointment to LVL lashes. 

"I have clients that block book HD Brows appointments in salon because they notice such a big difference and feel so much confidence from having fuller, tidy eyebrows," says Jodi. "It's a really rewarding treatment to have done and gives a Hollywood red carpet edge to people's look." We've invited a former Harpers Bazaar and Vogue beauty journalist to review this service at Bliss, watch this space to read her step-by-step story of the experience in this blog next month.

HD Brows, £39 per appointment (includes a complimentary top-up tint). 

Our glamorous Elemis-trained therapist, Reagan has returned to the Bliss team from her world travels. It's wonderful to have her back.
