I have been using OPI nail polish for years. Back when I was a teenager I used to buy $2 chemist black nail polish because I was a goth and I was on a budget. Then I think I progressed to Kmart bought brands like Revlon. After that the first designer brand anything that I owned was makeup and nail polish. I tried Chanel nail polish - that was nice. The packaging was lovely but it chipped too easily. I tried YSL too and Christian Louboutin around the same time I got an OPI manicure at a salon somewhere I think. Basically I ended up purchasing OPI because it seemed to last longer in the bottle and chipped less. Fast forward a couple of years to when OPI released Infinite Shine and now that is my favourite.Read More

She uses Pedi-Peel Professional which you can actually buy online - I am not sure what is in this however it peels skin off the bottom of your feet immediately. Coupled with a nice moisturiser, this is a great addition to a spa pedicure.Read More
