Tammy Taylor’s new Miracle Manicure Base Coat promises to extend the life of regular polish manicures by 75% or more, says the company. The UV-Gel Base Coat is applied and cured before the polish is applied, and it offers double adhesion to keep the polish from chipping prematurely. The polish comes off with regular remover, leaving the Base Coat in place and ready for a new polish color, or it can be worn alone for a natural look.

Antoine De Paris’ # 11 Gold is the original Antoine Acrylic nipper. Thirty-five years ago Antoine de Paris created the first triple reinforced acrylic nipper, and it’s still going strong today. It features a box joint with cobalt stainless steel and is available in gold or satin finish and single or double spring with a 5-mm. jaw.

Belava’s Indulgence Chair is a simple yet effective accessory to the Belava Pedicure Tub. The sleek design allows clients to swivel and recline while the tech performs an effortless manicure or pedicure, and the foot pad rests right above the pedicure tub holder so techs do not get muscle fatigue or cramps.

Backscratchers’ Heavenly Soles Foot Care System offers a complete pedicure kit in one box. The all-in-one package has four easy steps to create a lavish pedicure experience: an aromatic footbath, a natural ingredient exfoliator, rich moisturizers, and an elixir of enzymes to protect freshly pampered feet.

Young Nails’ Mani Q Color line features brush-on gels in 18 colors with a base and top coat. They cure in one minute. The cap identifies the color in dots, and the gels apply easily like a polish for durable, full-coverage color.

King Research’s Barbicide kills fungus and germs and protects against diseases. The EPA-registered blue solution should not rust instruments or stain skin or surfaces.

Duri’s Drop N Go helps you set nails fast. The instant drying drops dry enamel from the top to the bottom while giving polished nails a nice shine. Simply add one or two drops a minute after top coat has been applied and clients will be ready to go.
