New Beauty Treatments and Revamped Salon

April has been an amazing busy month for Emma and I with the introduction of retail products and new treatments to our salon.

Emma has completed her training in the Gelish Hard Gel in both tip application and sculpturing techniques at the Wessex Nail Academy.  We have now switched many of our ladies over to the Gelish Hard Gel system for those clients who need a little more than just a Gel Polish on their nails.  This Hard Gel is more flexible, incredibly  strong but much thinner and leaves a much smoother finish in comparison to using a soak off gel with a mesh reinforcement, which leaves the enhancement looking thick and bulky. The feedback from our clients has been very positive and they are all claiming this product feels light weight and extremely tough to wear especially as the gardening season has commenced for Spring!

The Nail Workshop Competition Winner

Emma ran a Facebook competition this month for a free Gel Polish at The Nail Workshop. It was lovely to meet our winner Karena and she was most excited about having her nails done with Emma.  Karena chose Gel II Passion with a stunning dark pink glitter.

Lashlift treatments can be carried out on their own or combined with colour to maximise the dramatic effect.

Benefits

  • Immediate results.
  • Curl /Lift lasts for up to eight weeks – ideal for those going on holiday!
  • Short, straight lashes appear longer and more flattering.
  • Drooping eyes appear ‘lifted’.
  • Ideal for those who find the daily use of make-up irritating to the eyes.
  • For those who find the mechanical method of eyelash curling uncomfortable, time     consuming and detrimental to the lashes.

Price List

Lash Lift with tint £40.  Emma will be offering a 15% discount on a Wednesday!

A sensitivity test must be carried out by law 48-72 hours prior this treatment.

Why not have your brows reshaped whilst your lashes are being lifted? 

Before and after brow tidy using the Ancient Art of Threading on Emma’s client this week. Threading is a safer and kinder alternative for facial hair removal especially for those with a sensitive skin, who have certain skin conditions, or are taking medicines that will conflict with waxing and sugaring. There are no chemicals or heat applied so Threading will not traumatize/peel the top layers of your skin.

Retail Products and The Revamped Salon. 

The Nail Workshop is now stocking beauty products for retailing, this includes Dadi Oil, La Palm Spa Hand Lotion, Small pretty 100/180 grit files (handbag size), Tweezers, Mineral Brow Palettes with Wax, Brow Pencils, Ancient Mineral Bath Flakes (for those who like a relaxing soak for their tired muscles and in need of a nights sleep) and much more to come!

It was time for a revamp in the salon over Easter, it was starting to look dated/tired and in need of a refresh.  We now have new very modern looking wall posters, business cards and leaflets all designed by Emma, a fresh lick of paint, shelving for our retail products, new swish chairs and towels……. It’s looking amazing!

Wow….What an amazing month for nail art

It certainly has been busy at The Nail Workshop over the last few months especially with those lucky ladies dashing off to hotter climates getting away from the winter blues.  We both have enjoyed creating lots of beautiful nail art with our new glitters, confetti and spring colour collections.

Emma’s offering 15% off nail enhancements and threading on a Wednesday only and appointments are booking up fast.  I would like to congratulate Emma who has successfully qualified in the Hard Gel System training through The Nail Workshop’s sister company the Wessex Nail Academy.

We are re-vamping the studio with new posters, flyers, price list leaflets and business cards.  The Nail Workshop will be offering retail products from the start April, all the lovely stock has been ordered and waiting their delivery. Looking forward to sorting out the display!

New treatments will be added to our service list, they will be up and fully available by the end of April, so watch this space.  Both Emma and I are extremely excited and looking forward to offering these treatments to our fabulous ladies.  We will make sure we take lots of lovely photo’s for you.

The Wessex Nail Academy is ticking over nicely and I have met some amazing students. They have all shone through with their skills in learning nail technology and I have had some amazing feedback from them all. The courses have been running at the weekends due to being booked solid with The Nail Workshop throughout the week.  This seems to fit in well with my students’ lifestyles and family commitments.

I have uploaded just a few of the images taken over the last couple months.  Happy Spring to you all. x

Beautiful Party and Christmas Nail Designs From The Nail Workshop

Happy New Year to you all from The Nail Workshop Team.  Sorry for the delay in blogging, however it’s really been a busy few months with the Christmas crush and our work load is finally getting back to normal this week coming. I’m hoping that from the start of February I will be able to start up the training academy again for 2016 and Emma and I will have time to try out some new nail art techniques….Watch this space!

Here are just a few of our wonderful nail art designs from the run up to Christmas, over New Year and the first few weeks of January.

Beautiful Gel Polish, Nail Art Designs, Hard Gel and Sculptured Acrylics Nail Enhancements for August to Mid September 2015

It’s been a very busy Summer here at The Nail Workshop and I unfortunately have not found the time to blog recently so I do apologise!

Weddings at The Nail Workshop

The wedding parties have been a great success and have already taken bookings for next year.  The Champagne has been flowing plentiful, the bunting strung along the ceiling with bows and balloons and lots of fun and laughter.

IBX Results

We have had the most amazing results for the IBX treatments, we now have new clients with stunning healthy nails wearing gel polish for the first time.  These lovely ladies are very proud of their  beautiful  looking hands and feet.

How IBX works

How IBX works. Image created by Tracy Shelverton‎

This is the journey of one of my clients who is the land lady of one of our very popular local pubs. She came to The Nail Workshop eight weeks ago with very thin, sore and short nails after having an operation on her hand and working hard as the chef in their kitchen. I decided not to apply any type of nail enhancement or gel polish until I had managed to get her nail health back in check. I applied three IBX treatments over a period of of six weeks and encouraged this gorgeous lady to massage cuticle oil daily. What an amazing result! Her nail natural nails and cuticles have improved allowing me to apply ProHesion Acrylic Sculptures extending her nails to a perfect length, finishing off with a Gelish Coral Polish and a glitter dust from The Creative Beauty Group. One very happy client and one very happy nail tech….This is what this job is all about!

This is my lovely Australian client who travels from Melbourne to spend a few months every year with her friends here in the UK. I have had the pleasure of looking after her nails for the last 9 years whilst she is in the UK. On her arrival this year, the client’s nails were in a terrible state from health complications. (Her natural nails are normally strong, long, healthy and I would apply a gel polish). I decide not to apply any gel polish and just treat her nails to a few IBX treatments to see if I could improve the client’s nail health before she returns home. Both the client and myself are very pleased with the results and her natural nails are showing amazing signs of improvement. Safe journey home Brenny and look forward to seeing you next Summer with healthy nails

The Nail Workshop Specialises in Short Bitten Nails 

The Nail Workshop specialises in short bitten nails. I  had the pleasure of meeting  tis lovely client and she has chewed her nails for years. The Client works with young children, she was going on holiday and was worried about having her nails lengthened. After listening to the client’s concerns and consulting her on lifestyle and the look the client was aiming for, we both decided of a nice short manicured acrylic sculptures with Gelish Tiger Blossom. At least this length, shape and a plan to grow her nails, she will be able to deal with her day to day activities and within time her natural nails will grow allowing her to get used to wearing nail enhancements with out causing to much difficulites to her lifestyle.

Safe Product Removal 

There has been a lot of bad press on how acrylic nails can wreck your natural nails. If your nail tech is trained correctly this will not happen, the natural nails will remain healthy.

My lovely Susan had her ProHesion Acrylic sculptured nails applied for her daughters wedding thirteen weeks ago and has had two infills in that time. I removed the acrylic and gave Susan a manicure to her natural nails. Susan’s natural nails were perfect, felt strong, healthy and had grown beautifully under the product. If acrylic is applied and removed correctly, the product/application will not cause any damage to the natural nail plate.

Emma

Emma is coming long in leaps and bounds with her acrylic application and is now very confident applying pink and white sculptured nail enhancements.  Emma also has been creating some beautiful new nail art using various new materials. The Nail Workshop clients are really enjoying having Emma as apart of the team and are always looking forward to seeing her in the studio.

July has been an amazing month creating gel manicures and pedicures at The Nail Workshop.

Just some of the beautiful Gel, Acrylic and Silk Wrapped Nails and Gel Pedicures created here at The Nail Workshop this month.  It’s such a shame I could not photograph every set we do, just not enough time in the day.  We have even managed to get a Gel II French Manicure on BBC South Today’s Weather with the lovely Sam and had a fun photo shoot with the amazing Amy Smart using our Gelish Neon Collection and UV lighting.  The results are fabulous!

Fun times creating stunning nail art designs at The Nail Workshop

June has been a bumper month and has been fully booked throughout with nails, brows, toes, threading, teaching and July is looking the same.  I have had wedding parties booking in for August so it looks like the wedding decorations and Champagne will be out in force again in the studio.

The Nail Workshop Team.  Congratulations to Emma.

I am very pleased to announce that I have a new Trainee Nail Technician called Emma joining my team here at The Nail Workshop.

Emma will be continuing her full Nail Technicians qualifications over the course of the coming months at our sister company Wessex Nail Academy. Emma will be studying Acrylic, Hard Gel, Fibreglass/Silk Wrap nail enhancements and Nail Art, honing her skills as the training progresses. Emma will be a bright, cheery and skilled addition to the team here at The Nail Workshop and I look forward to working with her. Congratulations Emma. Emma already has a couple of full days booked next week with new clients to The Nail Workshop and has already created some lovely nails and pedicure this week.  Exciting time ahead for us both. Here are some of the beautiful nail designs I have created for June.
