Vita-Gel Manicure vs. The Other Gels

October 21, 2013 Leave a comment

Since gel manicures have been popular I have been an avid fan! I love the polished look of acrylic nails, but have never wanted to sacrifice the health of my nails. My nails are already thin, so gel manicures have been my saving grace. There are many different types of gel manicures which I learned are commonly mistaken for Shellac. Shellac is a brand of a gel manicure, among other popular brands I have tried like: OPI™ gelshine and Gelish. When I heard that Cooper Spa was introducing a new gel manicure that was not harmful to your hands or damaging to nails, it only made sense and I knew I had to try it!

Cooper Spa is one of the first in Dallas to offer this gel manicure system, Orly FX Gel Manicure. The manicure is incredibly durable and is guaranteed to remain chip-free for at least one week. Plus, it’s power-packed with an infusion of Vitamins A, E and Pro-Vitamin B5 to nourish nails. So what is the difference between Vita-Gel and the other popular gel brands? It utilizes LED light technology (rather than UV) and provides full protection and incredible shine in just 30 seconds.

I made my appointment with Marcia. The Vita-Gel Manicure process is simple, starting with nail shaping and cuticle treatment.  Marcia then treated my hands with Vanilla Tangerine Hand & Body Lotion, from the Beautiful Fit™ product line. It smells divine! For all signature services at Cooper Spa, we use Beautiful Fit™ products—Cooper Spa’s own private label which are free of parabens, mineral oils and artificial fragrance. All of the products are biodegradable, made from natural and renewable raw materials.

Once the polish was applied, Marcia put my hands under a LED dryer for 30 seconds to harden the polish and give it a beautiful shine. She repeated  the same process after a second coat. The polish dried in seconds leaving me with a long-lasting manicure. While I was getting my manicure she gave me great tips that I haven’t heard at any other salon. She recommended applying oil to my cuticles every night. Applying lotion to your hands and cuticles will prevent your cuticles from cracking, but the oil adds extra protection. Any type of oil you might have at home can work, or Cooper Spa has specific cuticle oils available for purchase in the boutique.

Typically I don’t stray from my comfort zone for nail color. I stick with my two favorites: OPI Cajun Shrimp (which is a fun orangey-red) or OPI Bubble Bath (which is nude). Marcia suggested a color that I would have never picked on my own—Mirror Mirror. It is a light grey, which she said is a great color for fall. I have gotten so many compliments and will definitely take her recommendations for a fun color on my next manicure! Cooper Spa offers 24 colors for the Vita-Gel Manicure.

After my manicure, I was greeted by the friendly staff who offered me a delicious, hot white orange tea. I decided to peruse around in the shop to look for the cuticle oil. Not only can you purchase Beautiful Fit products in the Cooper Spa boutique, but they also sell a few of my other favorites like SkinCeuticals®, Moroccanoil® and OPI polish. While looking around I also found Jack Black® products conveniently enough for brother’s upcoming birthday!

Celebrating 15 Years at Cooper Spa

Beautiful Fit Products

Introduced in 2011,Cooper Spa’s own private label, Beautiful Fit–coming soon online.

What were you doing in August 1998? I was getting ready to start another school year. And Cooper Spa was proudly opening its doors! That means this month we’re celebrating our 15th Anniversary.

I’ve been so fortunate to be a part of this team for a third of those years. Did you know that we have teammates who have been here for all 15? Since the beginning Cooper Spa has been offering spa products and services designed for and dedicated to your total well-being—physical and emotional.

We’ve grown to 28 professional and licensed therapists trained to pamper the body and mind with restorative, therapeutic and rejuvenating treatments. And over the years our product line has evolved to meet the needs of today’s customers.

  • With more customers wanting to add natural products to their beauty routine, we now offer our Beautiful Fit™ line. This 100 percent natural line of body, skin care and aromatherapy products are free of parabens, mineral oils and artificial fragrance. They are  made from natural and renewable raw materials and are 100 percent therapeutically beneficial. They form the basis of our Beautiful Fit Massage, Manicure, Pedicure and Facial. Beautiful Fit products will soon be available online so you can easily experience Beautiful Fit at home for yourself.
  • Our customers’ desire for natural products means we have natural color products too. We recently added the Jane Iredale® makeup line, made with high performance minerals, antioxidants and vitamins.
  • Just like many of you customize your workout routines we all have a need to customize our skin care. After all, no two faces are the same! Whether you need extra hydration, added firmness or a deep cleansing we have a facial for you. The same holds true for our other services. In fact we offer seven massages that can further be customized with aromatherapy enhancements for an even more personal touch.
  • As we all become more crunched for time we want to address that need too. We’ll soon be one of the first spas in Dallas to offer Vita-Gel Manicure, a gel manicure system that delivers incredibly durable chip-free manicures for over an entire week. Plus. It’s power-packed with an infusion of Vitamins A, E and Pro-Vitamin B to nourish nails

In short, we’re here for you to take away some of the stress, help you to relax and feel pampered, and show you how we care.  Throughout our anniversary month we’re offering fun online and in-spa giveaways. We are so grateful for our clients and friends who come to visit on a regular basis.  If that’s not you yet, come and let us serve you!

‘Tis the season to SHOP!

I’m not sure about you, but I have been doing plenty of online shopping this year.  Between wonderfully busy days at work, fun times at home with my kiddo and all of the tedious tasks like laundry, my watch hits 10:00 p.m. way too fast!

I have run across a few family members on my list that should be on a published list of “World’s Hardest to Shop For.”  For those loved ones, I’ve stocked up on gift cards.  Who doesn’t love to be gifted with money to spend somewhere special?  Especially from Cooper Spa.

Thank goodness I can make a quick stop into the Spa and purchase the gift of relaxation and rejuvenation!  Give us a call, go online or swing by so that we can beautifully package your presents for you!  And the best news yet – this year we are giving you an extra voucher for a service or a Beautiful Fit product so that you can spoil yourself, too! We make it easy for you, so you don’t have to think about it twice.

What are you waiting for? Buy your gift card online or call Cooper Spa at 972.392.7729.

Introducing Lavender Dreams

Cooper Spa staff are proud to launch our newest product selection focused on using lavender to calm the mind and relax the body. Personally, I am fond of lavender oil’s property to be able to reduce anxiety and stress. The Body Polish and Bath Salt are the perfect accompaniment to our hour and a half of pure bliss, the Harmonic Lavender Sugar Scrub ($150), a service meant to reveal your most beautiful skin; and I must mention the almost fifty minute hydrating full body massage to complete the service!

Lavender Dreams Body Polish ($28, 8oz) is the take-home body polish which will complete about a dozen full-body scrubs in the privacy of your own bath or shower. This product is sugar-based with a variety of health-improving oils, making it readily dissolvable and suitable for all scrub users, even those with sensitive skin. We do want to point out that it is important to hydrate following a polish of any sort; make sure to test any of our Beautiful Fit body lotions as an excellent addition to this at home care for your body.

Lavender Dreams Bath Salts ($20, 16oz) will aide in the relaxation process at home as well as gently exfoliating impurities from the skin and to soothe tense muscles. Lavender bath products are our most highly-requested product and we have happily answered those requests. Our product is made of Salts from the Dead Sea which are known to aide in relieving arthritis, stimulate blood circulation and reduce inflammation among other benefits. A soak of about 10-30 minutes will have you dreaming peacefully at night and feeling afresh the next day.

All Cooper Spa products contain no artificial color or fragrance, are free from parabens and phthalates and are not tested on animals. You can purchase items in our Boutique or by phone and we’ll wrap your gift up beautifully and ship it directly to you.
