Check our exclusive interview with Gloria Williams the creator of Footnanny.
Tell us about Footnanny, how has the brand grown over the years?
Footnanny Brand name came to life in Sept 2011 via an Endorsement Tweet from Oprah! Since then I have worked very hard getting feedback regarding the likes and dislikes of the beauty product consumers. I have had huge success in developing Scents and Compounds along with my Chemist.
The word footnanny was officially recognized as a BRAND name a few months after the Official Product Launch date in November 2014 when O The Oprah Magazine chose footnanny as Oprah’s Favorite Things 2014! That endorsement put footnanny on the beauty product map and I will forever be grateful.
Why should everyone know about and own Footnanny 10?
Footnanny10 personal tooling kit was created because most beauty consumers don’t have the proper information on how to receive a safe pedicure. I developed the kit as a guide to help consumers take control of their pedicure and manicure services. Anything inside the kit that arrives in a count of 10 is considered Disposable and not to be reused. Items that are a single count are reusable and sanitizable. Everyone should take control of their beauty pampering life!
How do the ingredients you add to your salts help and heal tired feet?
The Footnanny Salts are made with 3 Power Salts of Epson, Sea Salt and Pink Himalayan Salts. All Natural Essential oils of Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, Thyme and a Pop of Lemon. All these ingredients make a wonderful Natural Inflammatory Product. Soaking in the Footnanny Salts for at least 20 minutes, drying off feet and then elevating feet will help reduce swelling in feet and ankles. Feet will feel relaxed and slightly energized.
We know you have a long list of celebrity clients but WHO would you love to meet and treat?
I would love to meet President Obama and give him a stress relief detox foot treatment. I would love to meet the Pope and just soak his feet with my new footnanny salts while he prays for me. Lastly I would love to meet Patty Labelle and also soak her feet in my New Footnanny Salts along with a nice footnanny 2000 treatment ask her why she does not have her own line of shoes?
Do you have any special tips on how to prevent your pedicure from chipping?
Yes apply cuticle oil to your toe nails 24 hours after your fresh pedicure. This way your polish won’t become brittle and chip.
Are gel pedicures a do or don’t?
Do! Espcially in the Winter Months. Just make sure to use High End Gel Polish like CND, OPI, Gelish and Cuccio along with the brands Soak Off Solution to avoid damage to the natural nails.
What kinds of hydrators do you recommend to keep your feet soft and touchable, especially in brutal winter months?
Footnanny Foot Cream because it is the best and the combinations of Soy, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Essential Oils are combined to target dry skin. Apply a generous amount of Footnanny foot cream to both feet, Apply your Footnanny treatment sock or fuzzy sock and leave the socks on for at least 1 hour! Your feet will feel smoother and moisturized without leaving a greasy coating.
