My youngest step-daughter Chelsea is 14 and has recently started a hair and beauty course as part of her GCSE options, she has said the area she wants to try and work on is nails and well... I guess I can help! I hate doing other people's nails as I feel cack-handed and awkward, but showing people and explaining things is dead easy, part of my job is training and mentoring people!
First thing I've shown her is dotting tools, how simple they are! I've also shown her how resting her hand on the counter helps steady application and briefly shown her how I clean up my nails around the edge using my angled brush and acetone. Best of it is she probably didn't even know she was learning because she enjoyed it!
I did the thumb - middle finger flowers on her right hand, Chel did the rest herself including the fill in dots and her whole left hand (no mean feat as she's left handed!) Check out these long skinny fingers!
Polishes used were a base of Wet N Wild Black Creme, white dots of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and pink Barry M Grapefruit Gelly.
We've still got to polish up (groan) the hand poses put not bad for a first attempt, eh? What shall we do on lesson number two?! Any suggestions?
Kind of related to this is another Chelsey also with white, pink and black dots: I have been an "inspired by" for Polished by Chelsey on Instagram, if you are an IG user check out her page, she does fab manis.
