Let’s get this (nail) party started!

Take a second to day dream… picture the day before your wedding.  You have a big rehearsal dinner scheduled in the evening followed by a night of lounging with your favorite ladies before the big “I do.”  You and your partner have guests visiting from out of town, so you’ve gotten two suites at your favorite local hotel. The boys are doing whatever boys do the day before The Big Day, and you and your bridal party -- plus your mom, grandmother, favorite aunt, etc. -- have ordered room service for lunch AND you’re all getting pampered by the Charme Studio team: manicures and pedicures galore.  Some are lounging on the sofa, while others are sitting at a desk, but each of your girls has chosen her desired location to receive the perfect fingernails and toes before the night’s festivities begin. Sounds like the most relaxing way to begin a wedding weekend, does it not??

Waterless Pedicures: they’re not traditional but they’re better in every way… trust me!

Welcome to “The Horrors of Water Pedicures, Round 2!” Just kidding, today’s post will tell you what a WATERLESS PEDICURE is, and why we recommend it.  If you missed our last post, check it out here.  Make sure to create a link on the word “here” in the last sentence. There’s a number of reasons we do things differently here at Charme Studio, and last week’s post depicts all of that… we want to keep this one a little less scary, and a little more fun-loving :)
