5 ways to take your look from the office to the dance floor

5 ways to take your look from the office to the dance floor

Got a hot date after work? Hitting the town with your friends straight from the office? Unless you have your own personal glam squad on hand, it might seem tricky to make it to the end of the day without looking a little frayed around the edges. Luckily, we’re here to help…

Be prepared

Hair that’s happy and healthy is less likely to be a ball of frizz come 5pm, so make sure your haircare routine is working for you – our APH Steaming Conditioner, for example, contains olive oil to help restore elasticity and nourish damaged hair. Use it weekly to beat bad hair days before they’ve even started (and pamper yourself while you're at it).

Bat those lashes

Nothing takes a look from day to night like adding a pair of lengthening false lashes – try our Professional Lash Strips 107 for a dramatic look that only takes a few seconds to apply!

Use the right tools

If you’re struggling for time before a big night out, you need a haircare tool that’s effective and easy to use. That’s where our Aphrodite Ultra Hot curling tong comes in – its quick-heating technology will add beautiful curls that has your hair looking luscious in minutes.

Or add some volume

Need a little extra volume? American Pride synthetic clip-in hair extensions, in a range of colours to suit your natural hair, are a quick way to give you Rapunzel-style locks without the hassle. Just clip them in and marvel at your flowing, selfie-ready look.

Nail that look

No look is complete without the perfect manicure, but how do you stop the dreaded chips appearing? Chroma Gel polish is the world’s most advanced gel nail polish, giving you up to 21 days of chip-free nails in a range of eye-catching colours – so you never need to worry whether your nails are on point before you head out for the evening!

It really is that easy! With just a little preparation (and the right tools for the job), you can transform your everyday look into a red carpet-worthy glow in under half an hour – who needs a glam squad anyway?

The ultimate pamper night

The ultimate pamper night

It's so important to take care of yourself and there's nothing like a pamper night to make you feel relaxed and refreshed. Find a night you're free in the calendar and make a plan. You deserve a little 'me time', so here's our guide to the ultimate pamper night.

Get relaxed

Pop on a chilled playlist, light some scented candles and get in your pyjamas. Make sure you're comfortable and have all the products you need. Tell the housemates or the family to leave you alone for the evening and take some time for yourself.

Take off all of your makeup

Yep, you heard us. Sometimes your skin needs a little breather, especially if you wear foundation or makeup every day, so start off by removing all of your makeup with a gentle cleanser and some cotton wool.

Put on a hair masque

A hair masque is great for soft, smooth hair and they are perfect for adding moisture back into your hair. This Goldiloxs Keratin Hair Masque contains protein and keratin which keep your hair, or hair extensions, looking super healthy. After shampooing, work it through your hair and leave it on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly for shiny, healthy locks.

Give yourself a manicure

Look after those nails and give yourself a manicure, you deserve one!Use a nail stick to clean your nails and the angled side to push down any cuticles. Once you've cleaned and filed your nails, choose a polish that you love.Our range of Chroma Gel Polish lets you get that professional finish in a range of gorgeous colours.

Soak your feet

It's easy to forget about your feet but a nice long soak can do wonders. Fill a washing bowl with warm soapy water and soak your feet for as long as you like. Add some essential oils, like lavender or sandalwood for sweet smelling toes too!

Moisturise

Give your skin a treat and use a body moisturiser all over for soft, happy skin. For a natural treat for your skin, try Aphrodite Extra Virgin Olive Oil which is great for keeping skin youthful, smooth and soft.

The benefits of gel polish and why every woman should own it

The benefits of gel polish and why every woman should own it

With so many different nail treatments to choose from it can be difficult to know just what product is best to use. Chroma gel polish is one such treatment and we love it! Below we explore the many benefits of using Chroma gel polish.

Long lasting

The biggest benefit when using gel nail polish is that it lasts much longer than regular nail polish. In fact, gel polish can last up to four weeks. It will not easily chip, break, or peel. Chroma gel really is heavy-duty polish for your nails. There will also be no annoying smudges as the polish is cured under a UV light which makes the polish instantly hard.

Gives your nails added protection

If your nails are particularly weak, or prone to splitting easily, then Chroma gel can help to strengthen and protect them. Our nails take a fair old battering during our daily routines, and gel polish helps to protect them. Once applied, Chroma gel polish acts as a natural barrier against dirt and pollutants.

Dries very quickly

When using regular acrylic polish the drying process can take up to an hour for the nail to fully dry. Non-acrylic polish takes even longer. These types of nail polish are more prone to smudges and chips because of the longer drying process. Chroma gel dries in just sixty seconds, freeing up the time to get on with your day. No more wasted hours wafting our hands about to dry those nails!

Experiment with colour and design

Chroma gel polish is incredibly versatile, allowing you to experiment with colour and design ideas. This is because gel polish is much easier to apply than regular polish. It is much easier to apply layers to create your design, as each layer can be cured, so is fully dry, before applying the next layer. You can use bold and bright colours, metallic, and truly express your personality.

Look and feel like natural nails

One final benefit of embracing gel nails is that they look and feel just like natural nails. This is because the gel polish is applied in thin layers, allowing the nail to easily bend and to be flexible! This is in direct contrast to acrylic nails that are rigid. Another good piece of news is that there is no odour!
