Susie’s Nail Art

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.

St Patrick’s Day Nail Art

St Patrick’s Day – Topical Nail Art!

March 17th is St Patrick’s day (and is also my parents’ wedding anniversay – double celebration!) and every year the Irish, or Irish at heart celebrate the day. It began as a religious feast day for the patron saint or Ireland and is now an international festival celebrating Irish culture. Across the globe there are parades, dancing, drinking and lots of green! I have seen St Patrick’s Day celebrated in the UK, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, India and Australia and almost always Guinness is involved!

Last year, my client was off to Dublin and was after Shamrocks for her nails so I did a couple of swatches and couldn’t resist doing a Guinness one.

Shamrokl

This year another client is off to Dublin for St Patrick’s Day so she opted for the emerald green glitter nails with the Guinness harps on her ring fingers. This design is a combination of glitter and hand painting. I’m hoping Fran sends some pics of the nails on location with a Guinness in hand!

St Patrick’s Day nails with Guinness Logo

According to Wikipedia ‘On St Patrick’s Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the “wearing of the green”). St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish.¬†The colour green has been associated with Ireland since at least the 1640s, when the green harp flag was used by the Irish Catholic Confederation.’

Seven things you didn’t know about the saint, the parades, and Guinness

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Neon and Sorbet Pigments for Summer!

Neon and Sorbet pigments for nailsI love these Neon and Sorbet Pigments, they’re so versatile, they¬†lend themselves to¬†so many designs! The Neons are super bright and fluorescent and the Sorbets are a little more subtle with a sheen to them. They are used like additives so can be used for Ombr√© effects and fades.

On their own or teamed with stamping and a bit of glitter they are amazing.¬†Highly recommended if you like your brights bright –¬†definitely a good choice for the summer months! So vivid¬†and eyecatching, perfect for holidays at home or abroad, or just to brighten up your day.

neon and sorbet swatches

Sixteen colours, 8 Neons and 8 Sorbets on colour pops. The camera does not do them justice. These are so bright and fluorescent.

These toes were destined for a wedding in Greece. Rainbow pigments blended across all 10 toes with stamped detail over the top. Perfect for Hot climates, these colours really glow in the sunshine and are perfect for summer toes.

Spring is here – Summer is just around the corner!

The Sun is Shining!Spring at Mole End Design

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and is still enjoying the warm weather. The clocks have gone forward, days are getting longer and Spring is here. ¬†Summer is just around the corner so it’s time to start thinking of ¬†your summer maintenance! Toes are soon to be in sandals, fingers will be on parade and it’s time to sort those unruly eyebrows and glam up the eyelashes.

Everyone seems to smile more when the sun is shining and it brings out everyone’s desire to start looking towards summer holidays and getting skin, hair and nails ready for warmer days and nights. It’s time for me to think of Summer offers for all treatments! Check out the newsletter for new upcoming offers¬†–¬†Join Here!¬† Newsletter

My Stamped Birthday Nails

I had a long weekend off with family here for my birthday and we had a lovely (almost nail and lash free!) time. I ran out of time so did my birthday nails with a mixture of Shellac Purple Purple stamped with silver and Gel  11 Metallic Silver stamped with a blend of purple and blue.

I’m still juggling my time between petsitting and nails, brows and lashes at Mole End Design. Lots of help from family and friends when it gets tight! Daisy accompanied me yesterday, she slept in her little basket throughout the nail treatments. I finished by lunchtime today so was back in Sherborne by 2pm for another stroll around Sherborne Castle and the stream in Purlieu Field. I hope this weather lasts – I must do my own toes!

Shellac with Additives and handpainted daisies

Fran was really feeling Spring has sprung so asked for yellow springlike nails this time. After looking through swatches and deciding on combinations, we decided to do daisies on a Limeade base with some blue additives. It was great fun to do them after doing a load of stamping. My stamping is improving though after the masterclass from Alex last week. She really showed me some great techniques and tips.

Uber Chic Plates are Coming!

CK_nail_plate_Collection_01__49589.1418841076.220.290I’ve ordered the Uber Chic Collection Plates as these are fantastic for stamping and they have a large footprint area, great for longer nails. I’ve also just bought some stunning colours to use with them… now I just have to wait til they’re shipped from USA!

Uber Chic has this to say about them:

The designs are 17 x 21mm – the largest single designs we know of in the industry – and are built to cover edge-to-edge even the largest natural nail size. Small nails left out? Never! Our designs are crafted to not be so overwhelming or large that you can’t see what is on your nail – even if it’s tiny! The plates in this collection have coordinating single images down the center, The designs are engraved on the image plates and can be used over and over again – never wearing out. Can you say…decals and stickers stink? They do.

Where has the year gone so far? It’s Spring at last and the days are brighter and already¬†new shoots are bursting through in the garden! As well as these pansies I’ve already been asked for Daffodil Nail Art and spring flowers and I’m booked to do my ladybird again. I love doing these!

I wanted to do some eclipse¬†inspired¬†nails on Friday but life just got in the way! It’s another 11 years before the next one – I better start now! I manged to get a few good glimpses in Dorset through the breaks in the clouds.

It’s time to think of Easter nail art designs, and then start thinking of summer ahead. It will soon be time to flash the toes again, are your feet up to scrutiny? Sign up to my Newsletter below and be first to hear of the upcoming Spring Offers. I promise No Spam! Newsletter

I’m looking forward to Thursday when I will start at 4 day one to one girly nailart weekend with Alexandra Woodward. Watch this space to see what we come up with. I predict lots of glitter! We will be doing One Stroke Nail Art, Gel Polish Designs, Stamping, Decals, Foil Effects, Inlaid Gems, and maybe a little Zhostovo if we have time.

WALAD Logo I have ordered some new cashmere ellipse lashes and cant wait to try them. These are super light but give a denser more fluffy glamorous look. Also in stock are superfine 0.07 and 0.10 lashes for a natural looking eyelash extensions, or these can be applied in multiples to each lash for a volume effect.

Semi Permanent Individual Eyelash Extensions

I’m getting lots of tips from continuing my training with the World Association of Lash Artistry and Development, so many techniques and styles! Come and try a Taster Set.

I’m just about to do my own nails, I’ve been a bit overzealous with spring cleaning and weeding and have a casualty so it’s time for a revamp.
