Gorgeous French silver glitter tips in Gellux gel polish

This is very popular at the moment in the salon French tips nails with silver glitter manicure. Also lots of red now that we are getting closer to the festive season. I have 12 different colour glitters, 12 different colours of rock glitter and 12 different colours of the caviar art. If I don't have something you want. Just ask!



Gellux gel polish nails in Norwich

I am getting amazing results with the Gellux gel polish. The photo attached has been on for 3 weeks and not one chip. It's great using a product that I know I will get great results with. Started using the new 'easy off base coat' from Salon Systems this week. It will be interesting to see if it makes much difference when removing the gels. Popular trends in the salon this month seems to be glitter and loads of it!! French manicure with a bit of bling is becoming very popular too. Lots of crystal lines and glitter lines with different colour tips. Everyone is loving the nail art stickers for Christmas and already having to put some designs to one side that people have shot-gunned.

This week has been crazy busy. Two Gellux gel polish pamper parties and even people on the waiting list to get booked in. Really looking forward to both parties. I haven't meet the hosts yet, but they both came through WOM of two regular clients. These parties are becoming really popular.

Halloween in Norwich

I can't believe me and little Jessica had 15 groups of trick or treaters last night in Norwich! I don't think I have ever had that many before. I did the fatal mistake of giving three sweets each child at the beginning of the night, but soon realised that wasn't going to happen! I literately had just enough sweets in total. Took ages to get Jessica off to sleep after all that excitement.

I am slowly getting business ready for Christmas. I have three confirmed pamper parties for December and two in the pipeline. Some days are already booked out completely for December, so I must remember to remind my regular clients to book in early. I have done some hand painted nail art for Christmas and have some sticker Christmas art at the ready. Lots of candy cane, Santas, trees, cupcakes, presents, reindeer and snowflake art.

New Gellux colours in

Just in the door from a visit to the wholesaler and now have two more fabulous Gellux gel polish colours in. Pink Violets and chocca mocha. I can't wait to try them out on my client's nails in Norwich.

I have also purchased the 'easy off base coat' from Gellux. This product is so good that it can last up to one month on some clients and harder to remove on them. On average it's 15 days no chip or peel, so will be good to see how this new product from salon System works out. I will keep you updated.

Popped into the garden centre on the way home to take Mum out for a birthday lunch and Jessica loved the Christmas decorations at Highways. She wasn't happy that we wouldn't let her have a giant reindeer, peguin or Santa! lol

Why embark on social media marketing? Strategy, tips & tools

Look out for a new u-tube channel coming soon :)

Express lashes art

Check out these fabulous express lashes art I did with silver beads. These are done using individual lash extensions on your own eyelashes not lids. They are completely lightweight and look amazing when you blink. Adds a bit of magic which will catch every ones attention. It's takes 20 mins to do this beauty treatment at my Norwich beauty salon or can be done at a pamper party. Ideal for hen do, birthday and other special occasions.

I have a few different brands of lashes available including marvellash and ah Francis. Mink & silk. If I don't have what you want please ask and I will try my hardest to get it in for you :)

Test patch is required for this treatment.

What other type of lash art would you like to see? Crystals? feathers? coloured?  glitter?

Nail art for Christmas and Halloween in Norwich :-)

Hi everyone. I am getting some ideas together for Christmas nail art. I can do these in OPI polish or Gellux gel polish, which last 15 days no chip or peel and you go home with dry nails. Sets under UV light. I would love some input into what nail art you would like to see next at my little salon in Norwich. So please feel free to leave me a comment! There are also some Halloween and everyday art on there too. Plus some different styles for French if you have a wedding coming up.
