ROB|B Salon Reveals Spring
Pedicure Tips and Trends
Robbie Schaeffer, celebrity manicurist and owner of ROB|B – the first OPI Concept Salon, offers expert advice on the importance of pedicures this spring. From proper foot care treatments to selecting must-have colors, Robbie shares expert tips just in time for sandal season.
“Feet are often exposed and visible during the spring so it’s important to keep them in top shape so that they look and feel great,” says Robbie Schaeffer, owner of ROB|B. “Sloughing away dead winter skin will restore the soles of the feet and re-energize them, allowing for a more precise pedicure experience. Exfoliation and hydration are important steps to prepare feet for warmer months.”
Whether in the salon or at home, feet should always be prepped with a purifying foot bath to cleanse and soften first, followed by a natural sugar crystal scrub to exfoliate tough calluses, revealing smoother skin. Pedicure by OPI is formulated with nature’s most soothing and effective botanicals and includes a full range of products including soaks, scrubs, massage lotion and hydrating masks designed specifically to enhance the feet for an ideal pedicure.
Schaeffer reveals, “While proper foot care is always in style, we will see an emerging color trend this season that will move toward bold, bright hues such as honeysuckle and coral. Additionally, we will see a new texture of Nail Lacquers, the sorbet style, which will impart a semi-translucent lightly glossed finish on the toes.”
To tap into the season’s biggest trend, Robbie recommends selecting the coral hued Guy Meets Gal-veston from the Texas Collection by OPI. To achieve the icy-toned finish properly, apply a single coat to all ten toes first, starting with the pinky toe on one foot and polish until reaching the pinky toe of the other; as soon as the first coat has dried, apply a second coat following the same pattern.
Located in Studio City, CA, ROB|B is the first OPI Concept Salon in the United States. 100% green and Gold LEED Certified, ROB|B is a breakthrough salon model, grounded in the nail care standards consistently set by OPI.
ROB|B is owned by Robbie Schaeffer and his mother Miriam, one of the original founders and co-owners of OPI. The salon is located at 12246 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, CA 91604. For more information, visit www.robbsalon.com.

Leading fashion manicurist Deborah Lippmann is the go-to girl for Hollywood’s hottest nails! The nail polish trend-maker styled Lady Gaga’s nails for Vanity Fair’s September cover with Waking Up In Vegas. The putty-licious gray crème is a super-sultry rendition of the popular grey-nail look.
The first time the pair met, Lippmann applied Ruby Red Slippers to the popstar’s nails—an encounter that inspired bold new addition to the Deborah Lippmann line, Bad Romance. Lippmann set out to capture all the elements of Gaga’s larger than life persona in a bottle and thought “What would Gaga do?” The result? Bad Romance—a moody, dark yet brilliantly provocative glitter polish. The chunky sequin shade reflects Gaga’s signature statement-making style and the bold message of the namesake song.
During the September issue Vanity Fair shoot, Lippmann presented Gaga with the first bottle of Bad Romance and she couldn’t have been more appreciative to have a polish named after one of her songs.

Known as the “First Lady of Nails,” Jessica Vartoughian founded Jessica Nail Clinic in 1969. Being the first nail salon of its kind then and now, Jessica Nail Clinic remains the foremost center of natural nail care with its unique manicure technique and exceptional treatments created by JESSICA.
Frequented by celebrities of film, television, politics and society, as well as those who simply want lovely natural nails, the Jessica Nail Clinic offers elite services that exceed the everyday manicure and pedicure. Upon arriving, clients are cared for by trained technicians, known as “Nail Cultivists” who have all been trained and certified in Jessica’s Nail Cultivation System by JESSICA herself. Before the manicure even begins, each Nail Cultivist analyzes the client’s nails and prescribes a precise regiment based on the nails’ condition which is used throughout the manicure and pedicure.
JESSICA is a pioneer in the professional nail care industry as she was the first to recognize that like skin and hair, all nails are not alike as well, identifying the four different nail types – damaged, dry, brittle or normal – and creating specific treatments for each type. JESSICA’s unique nail care philosophy is behind each and every product of her extensive Jessica Cosmetics line that offers products specifically targeted to treat each different nail type.
About the Collection:
Have fun, rock out and play with neon color on your toes and tips. Jessica, manicurist to the stars, introduces IGNITE that will bring out the spirit of color in you. Adding a kalelodscope of color to your nails with neon bright shades are a great way to bring back a touch of intensity.
IGNITE sparks six new fluorescent colours that run the gamut from puncy purples and funky fuchsias to techno turquoise and unmellow yellows.

The Art of Spring Runways
Eleagance is alive and well and a lot sexier on the Spring 2010 runways. Layers of super-thin fabrics reveal the body behind artful geometric ‘windows.’ Skirt silhouettes are fuller, flirtier. Sheer overlays are everywhere. And the new black is color. Unending shades of lilac, rose, cerise, crimson, and coral stand alone, or join the print and pattern party in monet-like flowers, Abstracts and Pop Art graphics. Proving if there’s an art to fashion, we definitely see it this spring.
Below are a couple of my favorite shades from the collection.
Pop Art Pink
