The ultimate routine for healthy and happy nails
The perfect manicure can change the way we feel in an instant. Important meeting? Slick on a classic red and feel instantly more in control. Need cheering up? Catching sight of pretty pastels at your fingertips can give your wellbeing a little boost. But, as with everything in life, it’s what’s underneath that matters most, and nails are no different! To get the best out of your manicure, it’s time to look a little deeper.
Did you know that the cause of peeling or flaking nails is due to moisture-loss; they experience dryness and dehydration faster than any other part of our body so it is very important not to expose them to detergents or over-use of strengtheners. For healthy, happy nails, Mii experts suggest that you keep them covered and protected at all times with a treatment basecoat, colour and topcoat.

Focus on feet
We’re all guilty of it.

They take us where we want to go, quite literally supporting our every move…it’s time to treat those feet!
Perfect your at-home mani + pedi
In an ideal world, we would all fit in our regular professional manicures every 1-2 weeks and pedicures at least every 4-6 weeks for maintenance and good nail care. But the experts at Mii understand that sometimes life gets in the way, which is why they have carefully curated these simplified routines and created a line of spa-standard products to enable you to maintain perfect hands and feet until you’re next able to visit the salon.
