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!
Some of my September finger nail and toenail designs. Still catching up! What else to do on a rainy Dorset Sunday afternoon?
I’ve let myself get a little behind in posting the latest nails to the blog. Next few posts are just catching up!
To keep up to date and see my latest designs see my Facebook Page here.
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 www.lcbta.co.uk 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.
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!
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!

We’ve had a few lovely days, punctuated with black clouds and rain in Dorset. It’s a time to get those summer toes on show and glitter has been really popular. The sun really makes them gleam!
Fingers crossed we get a few more hot and bright days over the next few weeks. Foils can really catch the light, with many designs on offer. Simpe plain metallic foils to full patterned holographic prints. Handpainted nail art or stamping can further embellish the toes. Neon Pigments are perfect for the toes, bright and fun with limitless variations. From a simple colour polish to full on Nail Art, I can create something for you.
Offers will be posted soon for August on my Special Offers Newsletter. Subscribe to my Newsletter to be first to hear of New Products, Promotions and Special Offers. Join Here
Toenails can last weeks as toenails don’t grow as quickly as fingernails. Some go as long as 8 weeks before a fresh set. Ideal for holidays as they are chip and maintenance free.
Gelish matching fingers and toes using Good Gossip. Very sparkly in the sunlight. This lady’s right big toe had been kicked and the corner was missing so I built it up to match the other toe.
Base of Gelish Good Gossip then Superglitter applied for an iridescent look.
With an extensive range of colours and effects to choose from, you can be certain of a set of toenails created to your satisfaction!
I 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.
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.
Hot Pink Pigment with black DRK Enlaced stamping in a random fashion over the top. Embellished with a swish of Gelish Waterfield for an added sparkle, they really catch the eye.
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!
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.
