Why Not Mani While You Pedi?
We know summer is a time for the layers to peel back and the skin to shine. So it’s only natural that sandals make their comeback along with trendy pedicures, but why leave it at just that?
Here at ohora, we make it our mission to provide you with endless options to mix and match your perfect mani/pedi combo. With summer stepping up, we think this is the perfect time to snag yourself the flawless set of both for your upcoming summer vacation or casual summer months spent at home.
You probably know the basics of a mani, but our wonderful, hard-working feet often don’t get the VIP treatment they deserve.
Here are a few tips to give yourself the best pedicure:
After removing your nail polish, soak your feet in warm water to soften your skin and relax. Adding some bubble bath or Epsom salt can be great for helping you relax and relieve stress. Maybe a little self-foot massage to ease any sore muscles.
Trim and file your nails to your ideal shape. When you put on your semi-cured gel nails, they will highlight your toes and show off their hidden beauty. Before applying your gel nails, dry your feet in a soft towel.
Have Your Baywatch Moment
With your feet free from their confines and your choices laid before you, we’d dare say you’re almost ready for your Baywatch Moment in the sand.
Don’t forget your chance to have an entire summer of toe-rrific, salon-quality style. You can snag a free at-home gel pedicure all June with ohora’s buy 3, get one free pedicure summer vacation special.
Prepare yourself for the whole season with just one visit to ohora. We’re excited to give you everything you need to feel flirty and fun in that summer sun.
