Light Concept nails and mood-changing nail polish are two items that Chelsea Probasco said makes her nail technician booth different.

I am the only one in town who does them. Its kind of unique here, Probasco said, who works at Marlenes Salon at 1201 Moore St., in Brookings.

Concept nails are plastic, non-toxic, odorless, retain high gloss and do not stain, Probasco said.

The nails are common in big cities, but not well-known here, Probasco said. The application of this type of fingernail is something she learned in beauty college.

She said they are easier to deal with. With acrylic nails, she has had to open the windows to let the fumes out. They also turn yellow.

Because the Light Concept nails look more natural, they arent as obvious when the fingernail grows, thus people may go longer between fills, Probasco said.

The mood-changing nail polish is not actually affected by the mood of the person, but rather the temperature of the nail, she said.

Probasco demonstrated the color changes by running her fingers under cold water. The colder temperature made the nail a brighter color. When hands are warmer, the fingernails appear airbrushed.

She offers 25 mood-changing colors, she said.

For an appointment with Probasco, call (541) 469-5678.

  • Asian stocks subdued on Ukraine caution in holiday-thinned trade
    Asian stock markets started the week on a subdued note on Monday, as tensions in Ukraine kept investors cautious amid an absence of catalysts as several markets remained closed for the Easter holiday. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan inched down 0.1 percent. Japan's Nikkei stock average rose 0.9 percent on the back of a weaker yen. Tensions in Ukraine, signs of slowing growth in China and uncertainty over when the U.S. Federal Reserve would start to tighten interest rates have buffeted global markets in recent weeks, although Fed Chair Janet Yellen's dovish comments last week helped soothe some nerves.
  • At Mt. Gox bitcoin hub, 'geek' CEO sought both control and escape
    In June 2011, when customers of now-bankrupt bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox agitated for proof that the Tokyo-based firm was still solvent after a hacking attack, CEO Mark Karpeles turned to the comedy science fiction novel "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy". During an online chat, Karpeles moved the equivalent of $170 million in bitcoin at today's market rates - the virtual equivalent of a bank manager flashing a wad of cash in a wallet to establish credit. The gesture - with a sly wink to the "geek" culture Karpeles believed he shared with many of his 50,000 customers at the time, including an interest in coding, Japanese manga comics and science fiction - succeeded. By moving 424,242 bitcoins, Karpeles, then 26, evoked the random number, 42, described as the "meaning of life" in Douglas Adams' sci-fi novel.
  • GM to battle VW in China with $12 billion investment and new plants
    U.S. car giant General Motors Corp (GM) (GM) plans to invest $12 billion in China from 2014 to 2017 and build more plants next year as it competes with aggressive rivals in the world's largest auto market. GM expects its China sales to expand 8-10 percent this year, in line with the overall growth of the Chinese market, where foreign firms, such as Volkswagen AG (VOW3.DE), and domestic players like SAIC Motor Corp vie for more market share. In total we are investing $12 billion between 2014 and 2017," Matt Tsien, president of GM China, said at the Auto China show in Beijing. GM plans to build five more plants in China next year, as part of its efforts to ramp up manufacturing capacity there by 65 percent by 2020, executives said on Sunday.
