Time for yourself!!

17th March 2018

I don't know about you but what with sorting the kids out, working, sorting the kids again and just general daily life I totally forget to have time for myself. I have made it my mission this year to try and look after myself a bit better because after all if I collapse from exhaustion who will sort the kids!! Be kind to yourself should be your mantra too.

Think how you would feel picking the children up from school after treating yourself to a luxury pedicure, total bliss. You would be relaxed and when you are being talked at nineteen to the dozen about x-box games or Harry Potter, like my son does, it will wash over you and you can actually enjoy the conversation as you are feeling totally relaxed!!

Pure Bliss!!

Summer is Coming!!

16th March 2018

I know it probably doesn't feel or look like it but summer is on it's way!! Time to think about having that pedicure to get your feet summer ready. What better way to wash away the winter feet blues by indulging in a Luxury pedicure, I use the best CND Marine products that smell divine and leave you feeling that you are walking on air.

A fabulous exfoliation and foot mask followed by a relaxing lower leg and foot massage. Then you could finish off with one of the gorgeous colours I have in CND Shellac. Flip Flop Fit!!!

Natural nails

21st November 2017

My mission is to get everyone having healthy natural nails... Yes Acrylics can look good but only for a couple of weeks until they start to lift where you natural nail has grown and this can cause infection as bacteria can enter under the lifting and cause fungal disease.

Natural nails can be strong and beautiful all you have is do is care for them, rubbing Solar oil in to your nail plate regularly gives them protection and drives fabulous nutrients deep into the matrix.


Come on ladies natural is best!!!

Autumn colours

16th October 2017

I am loving the autumnal colours from CND Shellac, a few of my favourites include Hand Fired, Crimson Sash, Berry Boudoir and the ever popular Field Fox. Also, by having one of the new top coats, Matte, Glitter or Pearl it gives them that little twist so your not the same as everyone else. Superb!!

CND Marine Spa Pedicure

26th April 2017

Had a fabulous day perfecting my Spa pedicure skills. I even have a certificate to prove it, say hello to a CND Spa Pedicure Certified Professional!!

The Spa Pedicure begins with the stimulating mineral bath which softens skin, deodorizes and reduces inflammation. Followed by the salt scrub which gently polishes and conditions the skin ready for the cooling masque, which contains hydrating sea extracts, conditioning mineral clay and soothing botanicals to soften and exhilarate skin. Finishing with the marine hydrating oil which glides across the skin leaving behind a non greasy moisture and light fragrance.

The perfect summer feet tonic!!
