Spring Time & Fresh Ideas

Spring Time & Fresh Starts

There’s no better time like spring to start clearing out the old.

Not only because of the arrival of longer days and better times ahead but because time could be better spent doing the things we love, so clearing out the old not just because we need to spring clean our lives of clutter but to create more time to spend having fun and taking better care of course ourselves.

I myself, step by step, took the time to reduce and refresh the contents of my beauty regimen, threw out anything that has not been used in 3 months or more, products that contain any SLS, parabens or sulphates, old nail polish colors that don’t suit my skin tone, and items bought online on a whim and voila!

I decided that the only items that I really want to keep must contain only ingredients I can understand on the packaging, items that contain all natural ingredients, items that have more than one use, and the packaging must be able to be disposed of responsibly and recycled or reused and re filled.

If your truly considering the same then remember when aiming for all these goals at once it can get expensive when starting out your eco journey so try one item at a time.

I started with one small habit about a year ago with household items and getting my laundry liquid from Infinity foods refill station, and slowly but surely creating basic skin and body care products at home for my own use combining all natural ingredients from scratch and containing them in glass wear, products that we now use at Nail Crew.

But understandably if you don’t have that extra time and other hobbies you find more stimulating then there are plenty of beauty brands who have created great ethical, sustainable, natural, economical and environmentally friendly products that you can shop guilt free!

We also have some great new colors to choose from @ Nail Crew.
Please come try out our pastels range of nail polish from Zoya to freshen up your winter color palette.

Inspiration From The Founder


Blue Beret Cos

( Blue Felt Beret from COS)

I learnt about a thing called Blue Monday today. Really?
We need that like a hole in the head.
@nailcrewuk to celebrate the END of January we took a little positive inspiration from this and created some fun nail designs, life and styling tips and put them on Instagram.

We hope you enjoy.
But on a personal note, I decided this year to not follow the norm, with a New Years Resolution.
Instead decided to pay more attention to the things I’m grateful for, what I have achieved, what I already have and who I have already become, taking away all pressure to achieve greatness from standards set by this online culture.
So much of my focus in 2018 was on being better and always being positive, shutting out negative emotions, as if they will just go away. puff!
I am not perfect, I am dazzling!

But a few things worth change and being conscious of, what really had me concerned was my impact on the environment at home and @nailcrewuk.

One project we have in mind @nailcrewuk is our handmade products which have been a hit so far, being conscious of the ingredients and where we source the ingredients, but also how we contain them, for 2019 we aim to reduce single use plastic containers for our retail and salon used products,
and even introducing a re-fill system.
You bring the container, we fill it for you.

It’s a good place to start, certainly food for thought.

So bring on 2019 !
