What a great way……to spend a Monday night! MissAvaCado at Tips Nail Bar and the benefits of avocados for beauty!

Anyone who follows me on instagram knows that my nail game is TIGHT.  When Miss Sandy Avvari & Janine Falcon asked me if I’d like to learn more about avocado and beauty treatments, I was all over it!

I’m no stranger to Tips Nail Bar-but haven’t been since their recent (fairly) renovation.  Allow me to show you around briefly.

Nice, eh (look I used a Canadian word!)?  Now, onto Miss Ava Cado:

I learned a lot about the benefits of using avocados in beauty treatments-specifically in a hand treatment. Here is the recipe for the treatment I received:

1/4 fully ripened avocado

1 egg white

2 tablespoons rolled oats (highly absorbtive)

1 tablespoon lemon juice


In shallow bowl, mash avocado until smooth. Add egg white, oats, and lemon juice.   Massage into hands, leave on for 20 minutes, rinse with warm water.

So, I must say that this not only leaves my hands super soft, but that it brightens them….must be the lemon juice!  I highly recommend it.

There’s also a recipe for a hair mask (which I didn’t get but I’m up for trying this weekend).  If the hair mask works even half as well as the hand treatment, I am SOLD.

1 full ripened avocado

1 egg yolk (tip: do the hand treatment and the hair mask on the same day!)

1/2 teaspoon olive oil (I’m probably going to try argan oil)


In shallow bowl, mash avocado until smooth.  Add egg yolk and oil, stir until combined. Divide hair into sections, apply mixture to hair by massaging into each section, concentrating on ends.  Allow to penetrate 30 minutes, rinse with warm water.

And why stop there?  How about some Face masks with avocado?

Add avocado to yogurt, honey to make a moisturizing mask.  Add lemon juice and egg white to avocado for a mask to balance oily skin!

Of course, avocados are yummy to eat as well:

Although it may not be ‘new’ news, don’t overlook avocados when it comes to beauty!!

    I love avocados to eat. It might be dangerous on my nails. Looks so relaxing. You get to go to such fabulous places.

    Thanks fir sharing this hand treatment, might give it a try soon especially if I buy an avocado since it is one of the few veggies my boyfriend dies not like, perhaps he will like it on his hands 🙂

    Your nails look great, but take care with using the lemon juice. Short term it might brighten the nails but long term it might damage them. My advice would be not to use lemon juice or anything similar on the skin, nails or hair 🙂

    Is there anything avocado’s can’t do? Eating avocado’s is also great for your skin and hair!

    Thanks for the posts and recipe’s Meredith
