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!
Acrylic nails with dusky pink gel and glitter with little hearts
Catching up on February! I did a Hard Gel Conversion course this month with Francesca Gomm of F.G. Studio and Academy in Plymouth and brushed up on E-filing, One stroke painting, and had a real Nail Play Weekend. Lots of glitters and pigments, paints, swapped ideas and had a few treatments. Have to mention the Boob Buster, a fab treatment and I can’t believe that it worked. Its so good I’m doing the course next month! Read more here

I’ve just completed the That Nail Girl Stage 2 Change The Game Course with Kirsty Meakin. What a brilliant teacher and a lovely lady.
I’ve been booked on this course since December and we’ve all been so excited to attend. We are the first group to train with Kirsty and we were all so in awe of her amazing talents. Having watched her videos on youtube (Chesterfield Cushion design here) we had an idea what to expect but we just didn’t realise how much she knows. There are over 380 videos on there, go subscribe.
5 intense days in which she kept us back til 8pm most nights. Fab week and met some lovely ladies from all around the country, all of us are determined to return. Kirsty is amazing and helped by her Brilliant efficient PA Jode Taylor we had a great week. Lot’s of work and lots of play too.
Great set up and so much glitter around us, like a nail tech’s heaven. This ad will forever remind me of my week in Stoke!
I went to the course not very keen on acrylics and not expecting much but I am inspired now… who wants acrylics? Long ones, short ones, detailed ones… Come on, let me loose on your nails!
The nail above is the Dragon nail Kirsty created for me. Fabulous!
November Nail Designs. Shades are getting darker ready for the cold dark nights but the bling is starting to appear more and more.
Autumn Nail Designs
Some of my September finger nail and toenail designs. Still catching up! What else to do on a rainy Dorset Sunday afternoon?

Back to Work – a short month of May
I returned to work May 13th and suddenly summer was here! It’s always a squeeze after a holiday – everyone is reading for their infils, both nails and lashes, brow top ups and suddenly everyone wants to bare all as the sun shows it’s face!
Just a few pics of some of May’s work.
Reverse french acrylic infil using Sparkle Cover Pink, Snow white and 3d lace effect embellishment.
Reverse French glitter mani with one stroke flowers. My holiday nails had seen better days, they lasted so well on holiday but on returning, unpacking, loading suitcases into the attic etc, it was time for a fresh set. I couldn’t decide what I wanted so this was the result of my playing, and a glass or 2 or wine!
Reinforced Gel Polish nails with individual rhomboid glitter on ring fingers and pink chunky glitter on remaining fingers and thumbs. This really sparkles!
Turqouise Cat Eye Effect with gold tear drop diamanté detailing on ring fingers
Elegant French with One Stroke flowers and diamanté detailing
Illumina Gel from Germany. This is a lovely gel, there are 7 colors in the range and they change colour depending on how the light hits them. They’re like exotic beetle jackets! Here I have used number 1 with a sliver of silver thread to accent the sides of the nails
Colours starting to go light for summer. Pastel gels with co-ordinating pastel glitters over.
Matte Gelish Night Reflection with dew drops over the top. A popular design
French with hand panted little roses and colourd diamanté details. Client’s pictures, I forgot to take a pic. I love the way she’s used the buttefly backgoround!
Short nails after IBX treatment with Shellac and stamped with Azure polish over ring and adjacent fingers. Very subtle but catches the light beautifully.
Acrylic nail extensions with Gelish Starburst and tiny flower stamping details. Perfect for Spring
