Founder Donna chats with Scratch magazine
We were over the moon when the UK’s leading nail magazine, Scratch, recently interviewed Hand and Foot Spa’s Founder Donna on the launch of her much anticipated nail polish collection and body care range.
Used in all our Hand and Foot Spa’s treatments, and available for clients to purchase, Donna told Scratch magazine “The Hand and Foot Spa London polish collection is quintessentially a British range of coloured polishes and each shade has been chosen, tested and perfected by the Spa’s award-winning nail technicians”.
“I developed the products as I wanted the option of a colour collection with various effects. I listened to what my clients wanted and I feel that my own experience of the industry has hugely shaped the range. As a result, it is based on what clients want, but perfected by nail technicians, and designed for women that want quality and longevity from their nail products, alongside well conditioned, beautiful nails” continues Donna.
Nail polish system is a unique concept
Presented in classic and elegant bottles, the bottles have been beautifully designed, featuring Italian glass and crisp branding that allows each shade to shine through.
Donna told Scratch, “The polish collection is a unique concept which is designed to be used as three-layer system enabling the Base Coat, Colour and Top Coat to work together. The base coat provides a unique mesh- like coating to nails,” Donna explains. “This provides strength and resilience and acts as a colour magnet and perfect base for the chosen shade.”
Based on four colour palettes, Reds & Oranges, Blues & Greens, Pinks & Purples and Nudes & Greys, the polish collection sees over 45 stunning shades in the line-up. Carefully selected by Donna, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the shades that are on offer to suit all skin tones.
The new collection offers further options with the six effect polishes. Adding a luxurious sheen to any of the shades, the shimmer and pearlescent lacquers take any of the colours in the collection from day to night in the stroke of a brush.
The multi-patented colours are based on exclusive technology to deliver intense and long-lasting, durable, high-gloss colour with added strength, flexibility and durability, Donna reveals. A dual polymer complex is present for high shine and long-lasting colour.
With great depth and density, the lacquers boast a high-gloss finish, with the top coat completing your manicure or pedicure with a gel-like gloss. It also works to protect the manicure against discolouration and chipping. Non-yellowing properties in the formula keep the intensity of each shade intact.
What’s the nail entrepreneur’s favourite shade? Scratch had to find out! Donna revealed it’s Black Rose. “I wear it a lot! It’s a dark and rich black tone with a hint of red. I find it goes with everything.”
New body care range for hands and feet
Donna also chatted to Scratch about Hand and Foot Spa’s new body care range for hands and feet.
“We have great feedback from our products, so decided to develop a retail range,” Donna reveals. “We use only the finest natural skincare ingredients available, including essential oils, floral waters, tinctures, butters, waxes, sugars, sea salts and infused oils, many of which are sourced from small British farms and organic suppliers”.
The body care range including a Rose Hand Cream, Lavender Flower & Bergamot Cuticle Balm, Lemon & Eucalyptus Cuticle Oil, Lavender and Vanilla Foot Cream, Sweet Sugar Cane and the Vanilla Hand & Foot Scrub.
