Amai-zing nails

On Monday I rather excitingly had my nails done. I simply had to share the results. I’m hoping this means they might grow a bit for a change!

My nails were done using CND shellac. This is a gel type nail polish which is super long lasting. I’ve had this on siz days so far and it is still PERFECT.

my nails have also been accented with glitter and foils.

Now where did I get my nails done? I had these done at the fabulous Amai salon in Croydon. The staff here were totally lovely, and the lady who did my nails. was a true pro. I felt like my hands had been “treated” for the first time in ages. Such a fabulous, and relaxing experience.
