Festive Fancies: Nail Edition

In not sure if you've noticed but I'm really throwing myself into christmas this year. This has been very evident in my moonlighting work as a Nail Technician. Here are some recent examples of my work!  These Winter Bridal nails feature a gorgeous vintage red over Hard Gel enhancements at a wearable length.

We went full on glitter mani for this one. Nothing says Christmas like over the top sparkle!
Santa and Mistletoe accents over a true red. So cute!
Black and Gold fade to match my client's Christmas party outfit!
When searching for inspiration my client fell in love with a very similar look by The Nailasaurus (one of my all time fave Nail Bloggers) so we followed our hearts and came up with this homage.

Christmas Jumpers under a Tenner ft Tesco, Asda, Peacocks & KarmaClothing

Festive Gift Ideas with Emjoi Micro Pedi (Review Included)

Last week I told you about the Micro Mani and how to give yourself a gorgeously shiny manicure in just a few seconds. This week I'm taking care of your feet with the accompanying Micro Pedi also from Emjoi.


This 11 piece gift set is slicker in design than the mani set plus you get all the tools you would need for a full manicure/pedicure even down to the finishing cream moisturiser. 

Here you see it set up with the exfoliating roller to remove dry or excess skin. This is my favourite part of the process, with my feet being slightly ticklish it feels great and like you're getting a proper foot massage!
Also included in the gift set is a nail brush, a tiny little brush to clean out the skin dust (gross but necessary), toe separators, clippers and scissors to trim your nails, and a 5 piece set to shape, buff and shine your toe nails. This takes a bit of skill if, like myself, you're not that flexible but the end result is great! As I mentioned earlier you also get the moistur…
