World Cup 2014

As it is World Cup season, I treated myself to some World Cup nail art!
I support both England and Brazil so have the England flag on my ring fingernail and part of the Brazil flag on my middle fingernail.
As the World Cup is hosted by Brazil this year I have painted the other 3 fingernails using the Brazil colours Green, Blue and Yellow.

VANS Ladies Night Out

Working as part of the Nails By Mets team, we were providing Minx manicures for customers of VANS in Bluewater, Kent.
Minx nail wraps are stickers which cover the whole nail to provide instant nail art.

Sam Bailey - Hello Magazine Photo Shoot

I was asked to do Sam Bailey's nails  (X Factor 2013 winner), for a photo shoot for Hello Magazine.
Sam already had acrylic extensions on which I had to infill and I painted her finger and toe nails in a nude colour to compliment her many wardrobe changes for the shoot.

Jack Wills Party - Covent Garden

Jack Wills hosted a party at their Covent Garden branch, offering nail art (amongst many other things) to their customers.
The Jack Wills polishes were great to use with good application and coverage.
