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.

  • Fed renews zero rate pledge, but hints at steeper rate hike path
    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday renewed its pledge to keep interest rates near zero for a "considerable time," but also indicated it could raise borrowing costs faster than expected when it starts moving. In a statement after a two-day meeting of its policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee, it announced a further $10 billion reduction in its monthly purchases, leaving the program on course to be shuttered next month. The statement was virtually unchanged from July, though new quarterly projections released with it showed the central bank's view on where interest rates should be in future years is diverging from where financial markets have bet they will be. "While the much analyzed phrase 'considerable time' remained in the FOMC statement, the newly announced scheme for interest rate normalization shows that higher rates are in the cards," said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital LLC in New York.
  • Federal Reserve signals faster but still slow path for rate rises
    Federal Reserve officials nudged their expected path of interest rate increases higher on Wednesday, but did little to change the outlook for a long slow climb back up to normal monetary policy. The so-called "dots" matrix from the Fed rate setters showed their median view of the appropriate federal funds rate by end-2015 at 1.375 percent versus 1.125 percent in their last projections in June. By the end of 2017, Fed officials see their target rate back at what they consider a neutral level of around 3.75 percent. Interest rate futures contract prices reflecting market views, by contrast, have been projecting rates of below 1.0 percent for the end of 2015 and around 2.0 percent at the end of 2016.
  • Wall Street edges higher after Fed; Dow sets record
    Interest rate projections, however, show Fed officials expect rate hikes, when they come, will do so at a quicker pace than previously forecast. "The two statements that were clear was, of course, the 'considerable time' maintained in there and the significant underutilization, so both those terms were left over from the previous one, which tells you there is not any meaningful moves anytime soon," said Terry Dufrene, global investment specialist at JPMorgan Private Bank in New Orleans. Stocks moved between gains and losses immediately after the statement before trending higher during Fed Chair Janet Yellen's press conference, only to pare gains towards the close as the S&P 500 reached a technical resistance point near its record intraday high. The Dow Jones industrial average (.DJI) rose 24.88 points, or 0.15 percent, to 17,156.85, the S&P 500 (.SPX) gained 2.59 points, or 0.13 percent, to 2,001.57 and the Nasdaq Composite (.IXIC) was added 9.43 points, or 0.21 percent, to 4,562.19.
