The Beauty Beat: 3/6-3/12

This week, check out nail polish that crackles, get stoned at Rik Rak and stretch to the beat at Green Monkey.

BEAUTY: Charlie Sheen has his crack. And now you’ve got yours with China Glaze’s new polish: Crackle. With six colors ranging from Lightning Bolt white, Black Mesh black, Broken Hearted pink, Cracked Concrete grey, Fault Line purple and Crushed Candy teal, this crack is anything but whack. To make it work, slap on a little polish, brush on a little Crackle, give it five minutes to dry and then cover it with topcoat to lock it in. What are you waiting for? Get crackin’. GET IT: Available individually or in three pack color kits at professional beauty supply stores nationwide.         

SPA: Take a sec and look at your schedule for the week. See any “me” time in there? No? Stop what you’re doing and make an appointment asap at Rik Rak’s new spot for an afternoon of self-indulgence in all its glory. Sitting sky high at JW Marriott Marquis Miami and Hotel Beaux Arts Miami, Rik Rak offers up saunas, body wraps, waxing, hair services, makeup, manis, pedis and a co-ed lounge overlooking downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay. But today, we’re dishing about the Volcanic Stone. The 60-minute massage is sheer bliss at the hands of therapist Mia Cookesy. She soothes muscle tension with locally made organic oils and a handful of hot stones. Sit back and relax as warm lava rocks are aligned down your spine and pressure points, the heat melting away your stress. It’s the perfect way to take “me” time and make it explosive. GET IT: $145 for 60 minutes. Rik Rak JW Marriott Marquis Miami and Hotel Beaux Arts Miami,  255 Biscayne Blvd. Way; Miami, 305.421.8770.

GYM: Every March, the Winter Music Conference turns up the bass in Miami with its arrival. This year, to celebrate the mother of all music conference, get down in your downward dog at Green Monkey March 9 through 13 with Spin in Balance. The Midtown and South Beach Tree Houses will be bumpin’ with live DJs setting a soundtrack to your sun salutations. DJs Marques Wyatt and Derek Beres (also a yoga instructor) are teaming up with teachers Paul Toliuszis and Kishan Shah for workshops and classes unlike your typical time on the mat. Check out Beats & Breath on March 9 and, on March 12, give the InnerVersions Workshop a go. See the rest of the schedule online. Packages start at $54. GET IT: March 9th through 13th. Miami Beach Tree House, 1827 Purdy Ave.; 305.397.8566 and Midtown Tree House, 2201 N.E. First Ave.; 786.477.6169.
