Recent Nail Tech Haul

Evening :) I got home and my Salons Direct order has arrived yay! I absolutely love ordering with them as the service is fab, really great prices and super fast delivery.
Here are a couple photos from my haul - never seen so many nail files! All the pots are NSI glitter acrylic powers, I couldn't resist getting so many haha.
I'm still testing lots of different nail tips to see what I prefer to work with, if any of you guys have any recommendations then let me know! 
Ruby Slippers, Emerald, Glistening Gold, Psychedelic, Ecstasy, Canary Diamond & Amethyst.

These colours look gorgeous and can't wait to try them out on clients, especially Ruby Slippers and Ecstasy, I'll be sure to let you see the results! Do any of you shop at Salons Direct? What do you think of their products and service? Lots of love xox

Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer - 161

Evening everybody! I've got some really great news for you! On Friday I had my final Nail Technician theory and practical exam and guess what... I passed! So I've now got a Next Step Beauty Diploma as a Nail Technician. I'm so so pleased as I was ridiculously nervous but it was all worth it in the end :) I do Manicures, Acrylic, Gel, Fibreglass and Silk nails. I can't wait to start advertising and to build up my portfolio, it just shows that if you put your mind so something then anyone can do it!
I recently saw this gorgeous Chanel lipgloss in shade 161 at the airport duty free in Gatwick when I was on my travels to Barbados! I instantly fell in love with it as it's the sort of lipgloss that can match with so many colours. I really love the look of it on top of MAC Creme Cup lipstick - they work perfectly together.
It's a really cute bubblegum pink with tiny little gold flecks running through it, just my cup of tea!
The texture and longevity of this product is AMAZING. It really is the best lipgloss I have ever used. Even with the mini flecks of gold glitter in it, it glides on the lips perfectly with the shiniest finish ever. I love the sleek packaging and the ever famous Chanel logo on the top of the lid makes it look even more perfect. I struggled a bit with trying to capture the accurate colour of this lipgloss, especially trying to get the gold glitter but I did my best with 2 cameras!
Unfortunately (for my bank balance) this has now started off my love for Chanel products and there will be many more to come! I'd love to hear about all your experiences with Chanel, so please let me know! Bye for now :) xox

Nail Technician Portfolio

Hey everyone :) Once again I'm going to have to apologies for my lack of posts! I've recently just got a new full time job which I'm so pleased with, so I've been concentrating a fair bit on that.

My nail technician exam date is coming up soon so I thought I'd share a couple photos with you that I am bringing with me. I know they aren't 100% great but it's a work in progress and I haven't been doing it long. I'm personally really pleased with the results and I can't wait to be officially qualified! Speak soon my lovelies and if you've got any questions about anything then please feel free to ask xox

Hey everyone! I'm sorry that I haven't been blogging much recently, but I'm definitely trying to get back into the swing of things! I've recently been away to Barbados for 10 days with my mum, dad and my boyfriend James. I had the most amazing time and couldn't have asked for anything better! I thought I'd share some photos to make my blog a bit more personal :)

P.s. My upcoming posts will be nail related so keep an eye out! I look forward to speaking to you all soon! Mimi xox
