Twinkle toes

I don't know about your neighbourhood, but in the last couple years, there has been an explosion of nail salons in mine.

It didn't take long for me to find my favorite one and now I'm hooked. I go for regular manicures and pedicures throughout the year. I used to limit them to sandal season only. Now I can't resist.

During the summer, pedicures are easy. I wear a pair of flip flops so the esthetician can polish my toenails and I can let them dry without getting smudged. In the colder fall and winter months, it's a bit of a challenge. My salon used to provide this nifty little saran wrap and customers put them on before their shoes/boots and socks. Now they use small thin plastic bags to do the trick. Either way, it's a bit awkward and a tad uncomfortable.

That was until now. Toronto esthetician, Liana Provenzano is a genius. She designed a special sock - Toes-eez - life will never be the same again! Toes-eez come in two styles: thong-like and toeless (think fingerless gloves for the foot).

The idea is to put them on just before your toes are polished. Your toenails will be exposed while Toes-eez help moisturisers penetrate your skin and keep your feet warm until your nails have dried.

Sold in select local salons and shops in the city for about $10, Toes-eez are a must-have for those of us gals who insist on pedicures when it's chilly outside. Call Metro Beauty Supplies 905 791-7722.

Available at JC Salons, 2326 & 2316A Bloor St. W., or for a store near you call Metro Beauty Supplies at 905 791 7977.
