Hot on the nail scene is the brand new nail lacquer from the hip brand Urban Venus.
The celebrity manicurist which has two salons in Calgary was recently voted one of the “top places to get your nails polished in North America.” by Flare magazine.
The founder of Urban Venus, Rachel, has been in the development of spa products for the latest 15 years. In the early days she was ahead of the ‘bath bomb’ explosion, and was one of the first to create the fizzing bath bomb that was to become massively popular. As the years progressed so did Rachel’s skills and portfolio, expanding out with delectable smells and products such as body washes, hand soaps and foot scrubs.
When Rachel opened her first Urban Venus shop it was immediatly sensationalised, winning accolades in National Magazines claiming it was the top place to get manicured. Since her instant success in the first opening of Urban Venus, Rachel went on to open a second location in Calgary and continues to extend her product range to add more beautifully formulated bath & spa products.
Her reputation and industry response has led to invitations to high profile events adding a long list of celebrities to her list. Urban Venus have polished the talons of the likes of Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Justin Beiber, Black Eyed Peas, New Kids on the Block and many more.
With quality at the forefront of her mind, all Urban Venus nail lacquers are dbp, formaldehyde and toluene free, something that is very important to all technicians and customers. The current collection of nearly 50 colours choices include industry favourites such as reds, plums, pinks and sheers as well as statement colours like gold and teal. All the colours have fantastic pigmentation which ensures great coverage and durability. They go on really smooth and the application brush makes precision brush strokes effortless. Each product in the range is thoroughly thought out and named after times or events found in a women’s agenda. Top examples include, ‘7.30 am in the buff is a sheer pink’, ‘12.01 pm power lunch is a deep red’, ‘3.30pm pick up the kids is a subdued pearly pink’.
