Is it spring yet? My theory is that if I just keep painting my nails bright colors and wearing my sandals around the house, it will eventually be spring. So far it’s not working because it’s snowing outside, but you can’t say I’m not trying.
For my birthday I treated myself to a Groupon to get a mani and my eyebrows dyed for only $32 at Fringe Salon in Chicago. I had a lovely experience and was planning on returning when Fringe kindly reached out and asked if I wanted to try one of their two new pedicures. Since my winter feet were looking rough, I was extremely grateful! During spring and summer I normally get two to three pedicures at a salon, especially for the first foot reveal of the season. In between maintenance at home is great, but after seven months in socks, some things need professional help.
Aside from their standard pedicure, Fringe is now offering a moisturizing jelly pedicure and a detoxifying volcano pedicure. I opted for the volcano, which smelled absolutely incredible. Everything was citrus scented and very invigorating.
I normally exclusively wear Cajun Shrimp on my toes but changed things up a bit and went for Mod About You. Cajun Shrimp and Mod About You are by far my two favorite nail polishes. I love them so much because they are universally flattering, which is hard to come by in a nail polish. Some nail polishes have undertones that don’t work with every skin tone, which is why some nudes may make your hands look dead and some corals can make you look like you have jaundice. Not these two.
While I was there, I saw Danielle who had waxed and dyed my eyebrows during my last visit. Below is a picture of my eyebrows the night that I had them dyed. They were a little dark at first but once I had makeup on, I really enjoyed how they looked. They lightened a little after two days and now after 2.5 weeks they’re starting to look back to normal. It was absolute bliss not having to fill in my brows in the morning. Now I’m still only filling in the tail, the front is still pretty strong.
The eyebrow tint dyes the hairs as well as the skin slightly underneath. I would say this service is ideal for special occasions and vacation.
