Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is here again! Lots of hearts and flowers on the nails. Have you any plans for tomorrow?

I’ve taken a day off as I have the house to myself so it’s going to be a play day, this time I need to get ahead so probably do some Easter themed nails, Spring nails… summer… I can’t wait!

I took part in an online course yesterday via Periscope with Dega Mosane in which she showed various One Stroke, Zhostovo and Foil techniques. That’s on the agenda tomorrow too. I have a set of lashes to do later this afternoon then no  more clients til Wednesday so lots of time to get messy and get all my pretties out! Pics to follow.

I’m also working on my new site which was launched last week. You will find  nail and beauty training courses here which I am adding to all of the time. I’m off to Plymouth on Friday for advanced training in various techniques and skills, more details to come! I also have a new Facebook page linked to that site. Come along and have a look.

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!

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.

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.

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.
