Christmas @Nail Crew: All the essentials for Winter hands

CHRISTMAS @Nail Crew:

All the essentials for Winter hands

This is a really tough time for skin and hands, and we know, we know, but we can’t stress enough how to take good care of them during colder months, we’re talking all the elements!
@Nail Crew we create our very own handmade products.
Alex the founder combined the the protective barrier of Candallila wax with the restorative ingredients Vitamin E, Almond Oil and Shea bitter to fuse the broken chapped and dry skin back together.
And great news for vegans, this products does not contain bees wax.

Alex’s recommendation :
“I just love that I can carry it in my clutch when I’m out, dab it on my lips, bit of lip liner, then smooth the rest over my hands and nails, this way I never forget!”
So not only is it a great all rounder, you can use it on your cracked heels too!
It’s good to bare in mind, all Nail Crew products are made cruelty free, using 100%natural ingredients, Alex insists on offering products that she trusts, and uses personally on a daily basis.
Nail Crew Repair Balm is now available to purchase in the salon.

@ Nail Crew we like to keep some traditions and add some new ones, so we hope you enjoy our Christmas decorations this year and rest well assured Alex will make sure we don’t run out of prosecco served everyday on the run up to Christmas!
Warning!
We strongly recommend making an early booking, if you’re struggling to get in for your Christmas manicure we have decided to open a little later this year, we’d hate for you to miss out!

Karma’s Inspiration

Karma's Autumn/winter Inspiration

Our resident and latest nail stylist, Karma Eliades offers us a few spicy styling tips for autumn/winter nails trends, colour trends and the vision that influenced them.

Nail technician, Karma

Karma naturally favours a splash of colour wherever possible in any outfit, and why should the cooler months be any different? It’s easy to add bold colour into a usual autumn palette, as Zara has done in this really fun outfit:

The look inspired Karma to go all-out and dream up this equally fun plaid nail design; it’s all about standing out from the crowd! Come and see us if it takes your fancy, or bring us your own inspiration and we can translate it to your nails.

On to the colder weather… Who doesn’t enjoy putting on their favourite coat and boots to accessorise on a cold night? While September was all about nudes, we’re ready to transition to rusty tones, tan and mulled-spice colours for October and November. And we have the perfect line up for you with our OPI collection. We especially love ‘A Piazza Cake’ (a deep orangey-red, shown in the picture below), ‘My Way or Norway’ (a deep, tan/nude) and ‘Malaga Wine’ (a deep, crimson red).

Before long, it’ll be time to shimmy into Christmas with unique, stand-out nail art like this tortoiseshell design – with or without gold leaf. It’s a gorgeous alternative to the classic winter colours which we still love; black, rouge noir and bold red.

Remember, as Christmas party season approaches we’re going to get busy, so book your December appointment sharpish to avoid disappointment!
