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.

Lash Lift is Here!

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.
