With facial products, skin protection, makeup tips, and bright colors, Essence is all about combining flashy fun with skin protection. Go for a healthy complexion and a safe tan, but don't forget the juicy colors. For nails, try OPI Nail Lacquer in Shorts Story and Clubbing til Sunrise. For a twist, "paint nails a vivid pink or orange and, once dry, paint your moon a complimentary shade."

Camille Meyer, owner of New Yorks TriBeCa MedSpa, recommends a medical pedicure. She says during a session, "chemical peels and VibraDermabrasion are used on legs and feet, and nails are brightened to perfection."
