O.P.I Rejuvinating Spa Pedicures
The word Pedicure is derived from the Latin words pedis and cura, which means “of the foot” and “care”, which is exactly what we here at Tipz n Toez will do for you. Your feet bear the weight of everyday life, give them a well deserved treat and “take the weight off” for a pamper session. Treat your feet to some relaxation in a scented, warm bubble foot spa with built in back massagers and follow with your choice of pedicure from the list below.
With each season, holiday or party, there is always an excuse for one of our O.P.I Rejuvinating Spa Pedicures that will soften and nourish your feet and nails ready for your favourite flip flops or party shoes.
We use the award winning O.P.I products for all our O.P.I Rejuvinating Manicures and O.P.I Rejuvinating Pedicures, and our range of Pedicure treatments start from the O.P.I Basic Pedicure to the Deluxe Spa Pedicure, plus we will tailor our treatments to each individual client requirement.
Whether it be a special occasion, party, wedding or general night out one of our Pedicures will be just the treatment to add the finishing touches to getting ready, and why not get your fingernails painted the same colour at the same time. Although it doesn’t have to be a special occasion to have a treat, well maintained feet look and feel just as good in slippers!
Some of our clients find that their big toe nails are sometimes misshaped with a corner missing or the nail broken low, this can be resolved easily by adding a Natural Nail Acrylic Wrap Repair to build the nail up to the desired shape, and once painted you would never be able to tell the difference as the wrap blends seamlessly to the nail giving an overall natural appearance.
MEN; Its a misconception that pedicures are just for the ladies, Tipz n Toez have a healthy clientele of men that have pedicures to soften that rough skin, relax and refresh, so whether your a commuter, labourer or sporty man, your feet still deserve to be well maintained on a regular basis.
O.P.I Basic Pedicure
For the basic pedicure we start by filing the natural nails into the desired shape and length, once this has been completed on both feet the cuticles are pushed back and excess is removed, the natural nail gets buffed over the surface to remove any build up of oil that may affect the varnish, then you choose from our range of O.P.I polishes (testers painted on palettes for your convenience) or you could upgrade to choose from over 250 colours in our O.P.I Gel Colour range (testers painted on palettes for your convenience) and 2 coats of the chosen polish plus a topcoat is applied. If you choose normal polish drying time is required for up to 20 Min’s to be safe from smudging and flip flops are the best footwear for after the treatment, where as O.P.I Gel Colour polish will be dry instantly as it is cured with LED light boxes allowing you to put closed in shoes/boots straight back on.
The basic pedicure is designed for an appointment between regular luxury spa pedicures for generally well maintained feet.
Treatment time: 30 – 40 Min’s

O.P.I Luxury Spa Pedicure
Performed in our state of the art Spa Pedicure Chair, complete with built in back massagers and Jacuzzi style jets in the foot basin. (chair also moves forward, back, down and up for your ultimate comfort)
Firstly cuticle oil is applied to the cuticle area and feet are submerged into warm water within the pedicure spa basin filled with essential oils and jets to massage the feet this all helps to soften the cuticles, then one foot at a time the cuticles are pushed back and excess is removed if needed. The natural nail is filed into shape, then each foot in turn is exfoliated with O.P.I Natural Sugar Crystals and Berry Extract Scrub to remove any dead skin before the O.P.I Callous Softner with Green Tea extract is applied. The O.P.I Callous Softener is applied over very dry skin areas and left to process between 5-10 Min’s, once this process is complete excess O.P.I Callous Softner is wiped off and a complimentary pumi bar is rubbed back and forth over each foot to remove more dead skin. (We use a NEW pumi bar on each client which is available for you to take home after the treatment for you to use at home) Once more on each foot the O.P.I Exfoliator is applied to smooth the skin ready for the O.P.I Hydrating Foot Mask with Cooling Menthol which will be left to absorb into the skin, this is then removed after 5 mins. Then a deep massage of the foot, ankle and lower leg using O.P.I Moisturising Foot Massage Lotion with Botanical Extracts and Skin Smoother with Advocado Liquid Complex, this is performed with no less than 3 massage techniques. Once this has been completed on both feet the natural nail gets buffed over the surface to remove any build up of oil that may affect the varnish, then you choose from our range of O.P.I polishes (testers painted on palettes for your convenience) or you could upgrade to choose from over 250 colours in our O.P.I Gel Colour range (testers painted on palettes for your convenience) and 2 coats of the chosen polish plus a topcoat is applied. If you choose normal O.P.I polish drying time is required for up to 20 Min’s to be safe from smudging and flip flops are the best footwear for after the treatment, where as O.P.I Gel Colour polish will be dry instantly as it is cured with LED light boxes allowing you to put closed in shoes/boots straight back on.
Pedicures are recommended at least 4 – 6 weeks apart, however during summer months when flip flops are the choice of footwear, dry skin builds up faster so you may find that a pedicure is needed sooner, within both our salons we sell all the O.P.I products to help with the in between time of appointments so that you get the maximum benefits of our O.P.I Spa Pedicures lasting longer.
If you find that your feet are really dry or sore why not upgrade to the O.P.I Deluxe Spa Pedicure that incorporates the Paraffin Wax. (see below)
Treatment time: 1hr – 1hr 30 Min’s
O.P.I Luxury Spa Pedicure with normal O.P.I polish – £37.50

O.P.I Deluxe Spa Pedicure with Paraffin Wax Treatment
The O.P.I Deluxe Spa Pedicure consists of everything above in the O.P.I Luxury Spa Pedicure section with the added treatment of Paraffin Wax. If you have chosen ordinary O.P.I polish the Paraffin treatment will be performed after the O.P.I Hydrating Mask in the O.P.I Luxury Spa Pedicure routine so that this will not effect the drying varnish, along with any excess moisturiser left over being used for the massage straight after, however if you have chosen our O.P.I Gel Colour polish the Paraffin treatment is performed after the natural nails have been painted and the O.P.I Moisturising Massage is moved to after the Paraffin treatment as this process will not damage the polish because it is thoroughly dry. Aftercare sheets are supplied after the paraffin wax as a guide to prolong the benefits from this treatment as long as possible.
Treatment time: 1hr 30 mins – 2 hrs
O.P.I Deluxe Spa Pedicure with normal O.P.I polish – £42.50
With O.P.I Gel Colour – £45.00
Paraffin Wax for Feet
Paraffin wax can be performed as a stand alone treatment or an add on to many treatments, however it is usually best to exfoliate the feet first to remove dead skin which one of our pedicures above will take care of. The treatment consists of applying moisturiser all over each foot then dipping the whole of each foot three times into the wax consecutively. The warm wax opens the pores and pushes the moisturiser deep into the skins layers which takes 10-15 Min’s. Once this process is complete the paraffin mask is removed and any excess moisturiser is massaged into the feet using a minimum of 3 massage techniques.
This treatment is ideal in the winter months due to skin drying out and becoming chapped etc.. as well as during summer months where wearing flip flops also drys the skin of the feet out usually leading to cracked heels etc…
It is recommended to have a paraffin wax treatment every 4-6 weeks to keep the feet hydrated and soft and the dry skin away.
Paraffin Wax on Feet £15.00
Paraffin Wax Explained
Paraffin wax has superb softening properties leaving the skin exquisitely soft. It has a diuretic effect therefore helping to eliminate waste products from the skin. Excellent for clients with arthritic problems, as it helps to ease joint stiffness and pain, whilst increasing circulation. Paraffin wax also relaxes aching muscles and is ideal for dry skin conditions, as it allows the moisturisers to nourish deeper into the skins layers with the aid of heat instead of sitting on the surface like most hand creams do when applied.
