It’s Officially Summer – Get Your Toes out!

Summer Toes

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!

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!

Lash Lift is Here!

Lash Lift before and after at Mole End Design
I had a lovely day doing the Lash Lift course  with Karen Gunning of Ellevisage Training Academy, the training partner of AH Francis. I wasn’t entirely sure about this treatment before this course but after seeing the results I was amazed.

I took along Susanne as my model and she laid back and let us work on her lashes. Lash Lift is a longer treatment than I thought but we were very pleasantly surprised at the difference it made to Susanne’s lashes! This treatment really opens the eyes… now I want it done on my lashes!

Karen was an amazing teacher, she went through everything methodically and was so patient with me. The class is a one day live skills workshop at Ellevisage Training Academy. We were greeted with coffee and biscuits while we chatted about the course and outcomes.

The Training Academy is set in a beautiful village location in a private courtyard, the studios are in a converted stable block with lots of parking. As it was a lovely day, we were able to have lunch outside, shared with Gooseberry the whippet,  and discuss progress so far.

At the end of the course Karen even went through some extra lash extension techniques I was unsure of, which was above and beyond what she needed to do! I really appreciate the time she took to go that extra mile. I left feeling confident that I had been taught everything I needed to know in order to be confident in carrying out the Lash Lift Treatment. Now I have to practice! I can thoroughly recommend Karen and Ellie for any training and I will certainly be back.

February Blues

The weather is appalling, thick white frost at 7am this morning which had disappeared by 8 then it’s hammered down all day! Seems to be a lot of blue nails at the moment, no one feels like Spring is anywhere near.

My new Nail Art books have arrived, I need to take a pic, loads to do in them. They’re in German which is a bit of a challenge but I have a handy translator in the house. I’ve been invited on another advanced nail course which looks really good. I’m upset not to be able to attend the Pisut Masanoung classes in May (first time ever in the UK), unfortunately I’m busy but they will be great. These have been organised by Karla Giles and Kirsty Meakin. See  https://www.facebook.com/pisut.masanoung?fref=ts for details of his work. This guy is brilliant and it is a real honour to have been invited onto the courses. His attention to detail is second to none and I am hoping he will come back to the UK and do another class very soon. His work is absolutely out of this world, if I can learn even a fraction I would be so happy! Fingers crossed for another course. Karla and Kirsty are on the ball and organising future events.

I’m off to bed now, off to Pro Beauty in London tomorrow to have a look at what’s out there and get some new gels, lashes and generally swot up on what’s new in the industry! Got my comfy boots ready as it’s going to be a long day.
