Go Ahead, Post a #Gelfie!

First and most importantly, Feetish’s Indiegogo campaign to bring nail services to East Fremont was a HUGE success, thanks to you wonderful people. Perks were dropped in the mail two days ago, and I can’t wait for you guys to open ’em. Your generosity and support means more than words can say. Again, thankyouthankyouthankyou. ❤

Secondly, I thought I’d take this opportunity to gab about gel polish (since the Indiegogo campaign was instrumental in allowing me to stock up on a wide variety of gel polishes and glitters for your mani/pedi pleasure!)

Gel polish is awesome for a few reasons:

* It cures in seconds, in contrast to the lengthy drying time of regular polish.

* It lasts for weeks under normal conditions, whereas regular polish looks good for a few days.

* You can get down with chemicals that would normally ruin regular polish (acetone, anyone?) and your nails will still look pristine.

* Gel polish is *super* awesome at Feetish Spa Parlor, because you pay the same price for a mani or pedi whether you choose gel or regular polish. Unbelievable!

Gel polish is cured under LED light. Each coat takes about 30 seconds to cure. Once the top coat is applied, you can tie your shoes or pick your nose, and your polish will still be perfect!

My very own #gelfie! Not too shabby for doing my own left-handed gels. 😉 Colors: The Abyss (dark blue) with Fireworks glitter.

If you have any questions about gel polish, manicures, pedicures, appointments or absolutely anything nail-related or not, please drop a note at feetishspa@gmail.com.

Thanks again, friends! 🙂

Otherworldly Travels on Fremont Street

It was just a matter of time before I blogged about Jesse James Celestial Comics. Located on the first floor of Neonopolis (just beyond the Denny’s that serves Fernet Branca, and Pancake Puppies wedding cake), I impose my presence on Celestial Comics at least once every other week to pick up my favorite DC Vertigo titles (Sandman Overture, Dead Boy Detectives) and engage in general mischief.

My pal Mike runs the shop and edits the pix. BAM.

The staff is knowledgeable about more titles than I’ll ever be. They also carry a wide selection of statues, figurines, hardcover graphic novels, and other requisite nerd accoutrements.

These things!

New stuff!

More things and new stuff!

Jesse James Celestial Comics is open 7 days a week from 11 ’til 7 or 8 (depending on the day). Tell ’em Feetish sent ya! 😉

Indiego…GOAL!

Just the other day with 22 days left to go, Feetish Spa Parlor’s Indiegogo goal was met and beaten! A million thanks to everyone who contributed, shared, or said a positive thing to me about the whole nail salon idea. Seriously, this wouldn’t have been possible without you. ❤

Thank you, friends!

Thank you, friends!

I’m going to continue to share the campaign for the remaining three weeks, because the Trek portion of the video still entertains me beyond belief. (Shout out to my pal Geoff Carter of DTLV.com fame for working his video magic. Well done, Captain!)

If you’re stuck in YouTube overdrive, please check out my Indiegogo rhetoric on this recent Massage Nerd Show appearance, and on this even more recent Downtown Podcast segment with Mack Holiday. Incidentally, Mack studies holidays and noticed the gross injustice inflicted upon nail techs everywhere with the absence of any sort of nail care holiday. So we invented one!

April 25th is the final day of Feetish’s Indiegogo campaign, hence we’ve dubbed it “National Mani/Pedi Day”! In honor of this sacred holiday, and as a token of my appreciation to the community who supports these crazy ideas in my head, I will be hosting a casual open house (with treats!) at Feetish on the 25th. Stay tuned!
