It’s Been a While!

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 reachFacebook 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.Green lashes Ink disco fever collection

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!

May-be Time to Treat Yourself!

May-be Treat Time!

May is coming… time to get Summer ready. I’m getting ready for a holiday and as a treat I’m having a little pamper! Exfoliating winter skin away, applying deep treatments to my face, hands, feet, elbows and knees,  polishing finger and toenails, defining my brows, lifting my lashes (as I can’t get to my regular lash lady!) and waxing all necessary areas! This shouldn’t be a May Treat, I should practice what I preach and do it ALL the time!

Holiday Time

April Treatments

April has been a very varied month for nails and lashes. Lash Lift has been very popular as it’s a zero maintenance treatment and adds so much to your lashes. I love doing Lash Extensions but so many ladies have fabulous natural lashes that just need a little lift and tint and get amazing results for 6-8 weeks!  I’ve used coloured lashes this month on some of my extensions, fabulous in the sunshine and when the light catches them! They are very subtle but look amazing.

April Nails

Nails designs have been varied this month. It started Dark and Wintry and ended all Springlike (see Spring – Have we missed it?) I’ve taken delivery of lots of new  polishes, Nail Effects, Bling and Glitter, Angel Paper, tools and lots of surprises ready for May. I’ve also attended 2 Online Nail Art Courses – watch this space for the results! I’ve also had Some Ela Loszczyk Training DVDs for my birthday and these look great! I can’t wait to get started. I’ve ordered more materials to complete the new designs, now it’s just a case of waiting for delivery and finding time to do them.

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 Ombré 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.
