Calgel Pedicures: Beach Tested and Power Animals Approved

As you know, Power Animals love gel manicures, especially Calgel. Calgel is the best for your nails, lasts the longest, and comes in tons of awesome colors. I’ve had a bunch of Calgel manicures and am always impressed with their durability and resilient shine. This summer, I decided to try a Calgel a pedicure for the first time – mostly because I’ve been disappointed with how regular polish pedicures wear at the beach. There’s nothing worse than stepping onto the beach with a shiny new pedicure only to have it dulled by sunscreen and sand a few hours later.

Calgel color choices at Pure Nail Salon

I chose Pure Nail Salon because it’s close to my apartment and one of the best deals in the City for Calgel. They have a good color selection, quality service, and a Calgel pedicure for $43. The pedicure included the whole chair massage, soaking, and scrubbing routine before moving to a nail station for the Calgel application. I chose a hot pink shade (#139 from the Calgel Hot Collection) and the end result was fabulously shiny and smooth. Today was my fifth day in a row on the beach (teaching = summers off) and I am amazed with how well my pedicure is holding up. It looks as good as a day I got it – no chips, no dulling, all awesome.
