Glitties Nail Art puts fingers and toes in the limelight with its glitter-based nail polishes, powders, and do-it-yourself mani-pedi kits. The company's biggest claim to fame, however, is its specially formulated bonding and sealing formula, which adheres the sparkly shade to the natural nail and gives it the look, feel, and wear of a gel. When applied correctly, Glitties polishes can last 10 days on the fingers and four to six weeks on the toes, allowing customers to get professional results without stepping foot into a salon, where an amateur stylist might accidentally shave their head. Nail-art kits come loaded with everything necessary for a perfect pedicure, including enough bonding and sealing formula to yield 15 applications, and products can easily be removed using standard polish remover or acetone.

The pampering continues with a gentle massage before a Green Science plant peel strips away blemishes with a 30 percent glycolic-acid solution that helps to prevent redness, irritation, and spontaneous combustion.
