Shellac September!

Posted by Kirsty

Hi everyone,

It's certainly been shellac mania! This month I have been inundated with Asian bridal party requests. So far, excluding another two this week and next, I have done four! I love doing them as their celebrations before the wedding ceremony is amazing and being there with all the coming and going of relatives really gives me quite a buzz....and I get to have a proper cup of Indian tea too!

Shellac manicures, as always, are still as popular as ever. I have started using glitter as another option to jazz up the shellac which you all seem to love.

August Updates

Posted by Kirsty

Hi everyone,

I'm back from holiday, refreshed and ready to go. While in Florida I looked for somewhere to have a shellac manicure done just so I could experience it. Sadly, after several days looking I couldn't find anywhere :-(

Natasha looked after Pinkies while I was away but sadly she has now moved onto pastures new. She is pursuing a career in event management and I wish her well with her chosen career. She has been a massive help to me over the past three years. So this means, for now, it's just me. Thank you Tash.

July Updates

Posted by Kirsty

Hi everyone,

We welcome July with more rain and winter coats! Thankfully, Pinkies is still managing to cheer everyone up with our fabulous Shellac Manicures and Shellac Pedicures. Pink is still the colour of choice....I think it cheers us up!

It's started off a very busy month for both me & Natasha. Weddings and holidays are now the focus as the Prom season, once again, draws to a close. Natasha is working very hard building her client base and working very hard for Pinkies.

What Summer?!

Posted by Kirsty

Hi everyone,

So where is the summer? I am told its summer solitice today which means the nights start drawing in again! And there was us all thinking this happened after a summer :-(

Natasha is away sunning herself in Spain for two weeks so it's just me covering my diary and hers.

The prom nails offer worked well this year. I met lots of lovely young girls this week from Arden School. They were all very happy with their shellac manicures.

June News

Posted by Kirsty

Hi ladies,

Wow, this weather has certainly cheered us up although I've read that rain is imminent which isn't good!

Pinkies Mobile Nails is kicking off June with Natasha working Wednesdays,Thursdays and Fridays and this week she is looking pretty busy. She has now completed her Uni degree and has decided to follow her love of nails. It's great having her back with Pinkies......not that she has ever left me :-)

Where is the Summer??

Posted by Kirsty

Hi everyone,

It's the burning question. Where is our Summer?

When the sun shines I do an abundance of French Shellac manicures, as most clients feel 'summery' like the weather when they have it. This rainy weather is keeping me busy with coloured Shellac! Everyone wants to brighten their nails up with pinks and reds just to try and make themselves feel happier. The most popular Shellac colours at the moment is Decadance, a beautiful deep cherry red and Tutti Fruiti, a vivid pearly pink. As long as Pinkies has happy clients, I really don't mind what you choose!

Updates

Hi everyone,

Am i glad to see the back of last week. I had to spend another 3 hours at the Eye Hospital in Birmingham getting my eyes checked again! I think I may need to set up a nail station in there...I am fast becoming a permanent fixture!! I have to add that this weeks visit was probably the best yet. While waiting, my husband, along with my best friend managed to get me two tickets to see my idol, Lady GaGa in September. To say I was delighted was an understatement. So I am off for the weekend with my friend to shop, eat and dance along with my idol :-)

Manicure V Shellac

Posted by Kirsty

Hi everyone,

I have been asked several times this week why I promote a shellac manicure over a varnish manicure.

When Pinkies was first established three years ago, varnish manicures were very popular but a guarantee for its duration was very hard to do. I know from experience that the most expensive nail varnishes don't tend to last any longer than cheaper ones. It's a fact that varnish chips, smudges and takes an age to dry! As you can imagine, the launch of the shellac manicure was the best news any nail technician could hear.
