I’ve just gone to download the images from my phone and the Micro SD card has died. Valuable lesson learned… back up daily! I’ve now lost all my images from September. So… still catching up here are May’s nails. Soon be up to date!
Acrylic nails with dusky pink gel and glitter with little hearts
November Nail Designs. Shades are getting darker ready for the cold dark nights but the bling is starting to appear more and more.
Floral Design Hand Painted Custom Nail Art – Susie Edwards
Susie’s always loved Shellac Hot Chillis, and being a florist, began having hand painted flower nail art on accent nails. Over the years these have progressed to ladybirds, robins, toadstools and even a painting of her little dog Nutty. One Stroke poppies, pansies, seasonal designs with holly, ivy, Halloween designs and her favourite classic Dior Half Moons which she used to practice in the sixties, also being a model for the Dior School.
With reinforcement over her natural nails and regular IBX treatments Susie’s nails have remained strong and healthy and her nail art is a talking point wherever she goes!
Susie was off on a holiday and wanted a reminder of her little dog Nutty. I painted a few samples first before attempting it on her nails. Remembrance Day was also coming up so I did a One Stroke poppy on her right hand accent fingernail.
We’ve had the longest day, things get shorter from here. Even with all this wet weather you can still have some bling and pretties on your toes! Mine are covered in little crystals to cheer up the cold days. I’m sat here with boots on as my feet are freezing but my toes look fab! Cat Eye Effect has been popular on toes this month but the favourite has been the pastel toes on Carley in the picture on the right. I rebuilt her big toenails as she had dropped a cast iron pan on her foot last year and it’s still growing out!
Mole End Design News
Time’s been short this month, lots of nails, lashes, brows, toes and threading. Monday is day 5 of Holly’s Gorgeous Nails UK Signature Acrylic Course. She’s doing really well and I have no doubt she will be a great Acrylic Nail Technician. More courses will be coming soon. I’m off on an Educators’ Course later in July so I hope to be bringing fresh skills back to Dorset! For more info email me.
I’ve been playing with 3d acrylic and 3d gel lacework. My favourites are the daisies. Still need lots of practice but it’s lovely to play. It’s always hard to find the time, but I love putting on Netflix and grabbing a glass of wine and having a go! More glitters and sparkly things have arrived and I have loads of ideas, just need to knuckle down and get on with it!
Back to Work – a short month of May
I returned to work May 13th and suddenly summer was here! It’s always a squeeze after a holiday – everyone is reading for their infils, both nails and lashes, brow top ups and suddenly everyone wants to bare all as the sun shows it’s face!
Just a few pics of some of May’s work.
Reverse french acrylic infil using Sparkle Cover Pink, Snow white and 3d lace effect embellishment.
Reverse French glitter mani with one stroke flowers. My holiday nails had seen better days, they lasted so well on holiday but on returning, unpacking, loading suitcases into the attic etc, it was time for a fresh set. I couldn’t decide what I wanted so this was the result of my playing, and a glass or 2 or wine!
Reinforced Gel Polish nails with individual rhomboid glitter on ring fingers and pink chunky glitter on remaining fingers and thumbs. This really sparkles!
Turqouise Cat Eye Effect with gold tear drop diamanté detailing on ring fingers
Elegant French with One Stroke flowers and diamanté detailing
Illumina Gel from Germany. This is a lovely gel, there are 7 colors in the range and they change colour depending on how the light hits them. They’re like exotic beetle jackets! Here I have used number 1 with a sliver of silver thread to accent the sides of the nails
Colours starting to go light for summer. Pastel gels with co-ordinating pastel glitters over.
Matte Gelish Night Reflection with dew drops over the top. A popular design
French with hand panted little roses and colourd diamanté details. Client’s pictures, I forgot to take a pic. I love the way she’s used the buttefly backgoround!
I can’t believe the last blog post I did was back in April! Now it’s summer already… according to the calendar at least! Things have been hectic for me. I’ve been on holiday, teaching, petsitting, nursing and of course doing my nails, lashes and brows. I really have neglected all social media.
Facebook reach is appalling and it seems such a waste of time to post on there as no one seems to see it anymore. Other places I post get a much better response so I have let it slip! Find me on:
I had a lovely holiday in Barbados then it was back to work with a vengeance. Summer had sneaked up on us so suddenly everyone wants to get their fingers and toes fit for summer airing and holidays are looming! Lash and Brow Treatments have been popular for holidays, Lash Lift especially with it’s zero maintenance appeal. Lash Extensions are a must if you want the full on fluttery glamour, with a few coloured lashes added to the outer sweep for the more adventurous.
I have new gel colours and effects in for the Summer months, with Cat Eye Effect being most popular at the moment followed closely by pastels. Neons are always great for the beach or even just fine days!
