You’re just about ready for the big day. These few remaining finishing touches are simple, but they promise to make a dramatic impression.
On the day before the wedding get a manicure and pedicure. Even better, do it in the company of the one you love. The Polished Signature Manicure is her basic manicure with a few special touches. A soothing warm cleansing bath, a calming massage of hands and arms, and an heated aromatic towel wrap transform this “basic’ manicure into an extraordinary time to relish.
For the gentleman, consider a Polished Sport’s Manicure. Never fear, this is nothing too fancy. It simply exfoliates dry, rough skin and refines forgotten nails and tired cuticles. Most importantly, it includes an invigorating hand massage.

And again, let’s not forget about his toes. In preparation for the wedding day, a Polished Sport’s Pedicure is a must. After the soothing touch of a warm soak, ugly calluses are removed, nails are refined, and cuticles are tidied. The closing massage is fabulously restorative and calming.

Polished Salon and Spa is devoting this month’s email newsletters to soon-to-be brides, bridesmaids, and friends of brides. So far, we’ve explored wedding worthy skin, hair and makeup. Now, as the special day draws ever near, it’s time to consider the all-too-important final finishing touches.
Spray Tan or Tanning Bed?
Your natural skin tone and the degree of tan you desire for your wedding day will determine when to begin your tanning sessions. Even if you’re an old hand at tanning-self applied, spray, or otherwise-why risk streaks, lines, peeling, or a burn on the big day? Your best bet for a lovely glow is to leave it to Polished Tanning specialists. A trial session in a tanning bed or a sample spray tan application is key to getting your exact look. As always, pictures are helpful. Bring in a sample of the specific kind of color you’re hoping to acquire. If you’re not perfectly delighted with the results or have second thoughts, this period of time will allow your tan to fade.
Ready To Revisit the Brows?
Closer to the actual wedding day, it’s wise to totally forego waxing for plucking. It’s gentler on the skin and allows your Polished aesthetician to precisely target individual hairs for the best overall shape. At the close of your session, we’ll again show you how to softly shade in your freshened brows to acquire the most complimentary shape to your face. Your newly refined brows will dramatically enhance your complete look.
Now, with the wedding day just around the corner, it’s especially important for the bride to unwind. You don’t want to carry any weighty burdens with you down the aisle to your awaiting loved one. Instead, let Polished Salon and Spa, soothe you into bridal bliss with our Bridal Bliss Spa Package. Your heavenly treatment begins with a half hour massage; continues with a spa manicure; and closes with a spa pedicure. Even better, we include a FREE Gift for the Bride!
Polished Salon and Spa, the premier hair salon of Harrisburg, is still in wedding mode, helping bridesmaids and brides prepare for the special day.
Now, Have You Thought About Your Makeup?
If so, bring in pictures. In fact, bring in color preferences and favorites from your personal makeup arsenal. This will give Julia, Polished resident makeup specialist, a clear vision of your style and personality. Everyone’s version of a smoky eye is different, but presenting a picture of exactly what you want will leave no room for error. Using her own mineral makeup line, Julia will recreate your dream look without flaw.
And of course we need to consider your brows. Well-shaped brows will help to frame your overall look. You may need to let hair grow into sparse areas. If so, we’ll show you how to naturally shade them in during this growth time.
Let’s Finalize Your Hairstyle.
Together with your trusted Polished stylist, you’ve already whittled your list of favorite hairstyles down to two. Now, with the wedding only a couple months away, you need to select the all time beloved one. To do so, bring your veil and jewelry in to your Polished stylist. This will enable you to see exactly what you’ll look like on the big day. You may be perfectly satisfied or you may have some ideas for improvement. Either way, you’re one step closer to that coveted wedding day look.
Wedding day preparations can be taxing. So why not relieve yourself of some of the stress with a Polished Spa bridal or bachlorette party? For only $85 per person everyone can enjoy a Spa Manicure and Champagne & Roses Pedicure! Doesn’t that sound like heaven?

Polished Salon and Spa, one of the premier hair salons Harrisburg has to offer, is your source for every beauty extravagance. So, as you prepare for Spring’s brighter skies, warmer temperatures, and budding flowers consider a Polished manicure with OPI’s Spring/Summer 2011 ‘Texas Collection’. This sorbet-inspired color collection is brilliantly enhanced with a touch of cream, a hint of sheer, and a sprinkling of glitter.
Perfect for an Easter brunch or springtime social, is OPI’s I Want To Be A-lone Star. This pale pastel blue packed with silver shimmer luminously straddles the line between baby blue and white. The glorious gleam and sparkle of this otherwise understated polish will play stunningly with the resplendent beauty of any springtime afternoon.
San Tan-tonio, an earthier sandy beige option, is a warmer, almost organic, shade. This option is the perfect alternative for the professional looking to introduce a bit of sass and style into her otherwise stuffy workplace.
OPI Austin-tatious Turquoise is a brilliant option for the metro-chic stylist. The gray undertone and blue metallic shimmer create an edgy, yet feminine, effect. Even better, plenteous glitter and a semi-sheer turquoise base induce play and enchantment.
Those of you who naturally gravitate towards pink during the spring season will be delighted to learn of OPI’s, It’s Totally Fort Worth It. The shimmer of the pale grey base gives way to a dazzling wash of pink micro-glitter. You won’t be disappointed.
Suzi Loves Cowboys is the surprise of the collection. This true brown cream is splendidly crafted for both warm and cool skin tones. But be forewarned, Suzi Loves Cowboys bears an uncanny resemblance to melted chocolate. You just might find yourself dreaming of sinfully delicious dainties and wickedly scrumptious confections.
Don’t Mess With OPI is a rich grass green cream; an excellent choice for those of us who’ll be battling this season’s horridly matted plastic, Easter-basket, faux grass. This charming color will, no doubt, ease the annoyance of stray candy wrappers and sticky, half-eaten treats amassed in fake grass and pocket lint. As we pry gooey culprits from darling dresses and knotted hair we can admire our gorgeous nails.
OPI’s Texas Collection is available now at Polished Salon and Spa, the trendiest hair salon Harrisburg has to offer. Mention this newsletter when you call to schedule your Polished manicure and receive a $5 discount.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Sandal Season is here! You know what that means. Cuticle trims, callus removals, nail filings, foot exfoliation. It’s ‘Toe Time’!
Polished Salon and Spa, one of the premier nail salons Harrisburg, also offers richly indulgent spa therapies. The Polished Signature Pedicure and the Polished Sea Spa Pedicure are particularly advantageous in bringing forth spring season beauties from winter-chapped toes.
The Polished Signature Pedicure is nearly opulent in its generous use of aromatic elements, hydrotherapy, heat, and massage. In fact, many a man and woman have nodded off during this 60-minute journey to heaven. The warm towels and lower leg [and foot] massage allure even the most anxious and restless to relax.
Believe it or not, the Polished Sea Spa Pedicure is even more lavish. This 90-minute euphoria also begins in a whirling hydrotherapy footbath with your aromatic selection. But, hydration is superbly enhanced with a foot mask and warm paraffin treatment. You won’t believe the radical transformation.
Rest assured, you can choose to add a deeply hydrating dermal foot masque to any Polished Spa Pedicure, even a Mini Pedicure. So don’t fret if time is an issue.
Polished Salon and Spa has what it takes to get you spring-season-ready in as little or as much time as you have. Whether you’re the athlete with damaged toenails racing off to the next meet; the steel-toed boot wearer with cracked nails heading to the boat; the spur-of-the-moment mother with only minutes to spare; or the well maintained dollhouse darling on her way to lunch Polished Salon and Spa is well equipped to help you put your best foot forward into the spring season.
