Bling for the Holidays: Swarovski Crystal Pedicure

Are you ready for the latest in luxe pedicures? This season, the Lapis Spa at Fontainebleau Miami Beach will be offering pedicures that have a bit more bling than just the typical glitter nail polish. How about wowing everyone at holiday parties and new year's celebrations with a Swarovski pedicure (I'm sure a diamond pedicure will be enjoyed by the ultra rich soon).

Celebs such as Rihanna and Beyoncé has rocked this ultimate accessory, which features shimmering Swarovski crystals that add lasting glam to your toes. The pedicure takes approximately 90 minutes, includes a Lapis Spa "Spalicious Pedicure" and costs $200 for the effect on all 10 toes.

I do have a few questions:
How many crystal color choices are there? 
Is there an option to do multi-colored crystals in one pedi? 
How long does it last?

Hopefully I will get the answers to these soon and update you guys. Of course if anyone knows the answers to these questions, please feel free to share them in the comments section.

UPDATE: I've received more information and answers to my questions on the Swarovski pedicure from Silvia Calderon, Asst Director of Spa and Salon Services at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach:
  • Currently the Lapis Spa only has the clear Swarovski crystals but they are expecting more color choices by next week.
  • There isn't a multi-colored crystal mani, only one color is done on the entire nail
  • Per Ms. Calderon. the pedicure will last depending what shoes you wear, open toes are recommended for long lasting. (time-wise, I will assume it will last as long as a caviar pedicure)

What We're Loving | LVX Luxury Vegan Nail Lacquer

A few weeks ago we were vicariously invited through our sister blog, My Life on and off the Guest List, to preview the luxury vegan nail lacquer brand, LVX Nail Lacquer at La Vie Zen Spa. During the event, we were lucky enough to preview LVX's current Fall 2013 Collection, which launched this past August, their Holiday Trio and the Winter Resort Collection which was released Thanksgiving. Guests were pampered with on-site manis featuring colors from any of LVX's collections. I went with the very rich, very lush Caviar from their Winter Resort collection

"Caviar pays homage to our very own Livid, a classic jet set crème. What makes Caviar especially distinctive is its final texture; the silver glitter particles act as a three dimensional element and make this ultra black crème all the more intriguing when dry."

I loved this color; it had stunning shine and was completely opaque in only two coats. The resulting jet set texture blew me away and received several compliments. I must note this was the first time my nails were dressed in black. Usually with vegan formulas, I experience chipping within a day but after 5 days, the LVX Nail Lacquer was still going strong.

The Winter Resort Collection consists of (from left to right) Magenta, Avalon, Scarlet, Graphite, Caviar and Sappir (a striking sapphire metallic crème - not pictured)

The Holiday Trio colors that are synonymous with the holiday season and from now through December 31st, LVX will be donating 20% of their proceeds of the sale of this set to PETA. The Holiday Trio features (from left to right) Sanguine, Luxe and Alchemy.

If you're an animal lover or looking to add healthier nail products to your collection with out losing the luxe and fashionable aspect, look no further than LVX Nail Lacquer. Featuring the top colors of the season, is long lasting, chip resistant with a gel-like formula that is free of toxic and harsh chemicals. LVX products are fomulated without the use of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, and Camphor without compromising quality, durability and finish.

Sarah Hyland & Kate Mara Rock Red Carpet Manicure Nails to the Emmys

One of this year's hottest accessories is nail art. This year's Emmy Awards allowed celebrities to show off some amazing Red Carpet nail art. Leading ladies Kate Mara and Sarah Hyland wore Red Carpet Manicure, an at-home LED gel polish to tonight’s Emmy Awards and opted for “negative space” looks—having a natural or bare area of nail exposed somewhere between/within the polished area instead of a two-toned manicure. And here’s how your readers can recreate both looks.

Celebrity Manicurist Kimmie Kyees used Red Carpet Manicure’s LED gel polish "Dripping in Luxury” and “White Hot” on House of Cards’ Kate Mara. “I created 15 different looks in silver and white variations and Kate opted for a chevron look,” said Kimmie. “Kate’s dress is made of lace and toile with a pattern, so I wanted to created a negative space manicure that mirrored the design on top of her dress.”

And Celebrity Manicurist Christina Aviles, used Red Carpet Manicure’s “Haute Couture,” “Runway Red” and “Camera Shy” on Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland (see above photo). “Sarah co-designed her dress with Carolina Herrera and wanted to complement her dress with burgundy nails," said Christina. "Once we sat down together, she let me know she really wanted to do something eye catching and art deco.”
