Hi all

I have got myself a booking for 3 people on Saturday (cant stop whoopee-ing as thats good for saying i've not been at this long and i was recommended!!)

Only thing is...luckily I have been forewarned.. 2 of the ladies want nice and easy French....1 will want something a bit more jazzy..

Now, all i have in my 'nail art' kit is lots of rhinestones, coloured nail polishes, crushed shells and dried flowers.

ANYONE GOT ANY IDEAS/INSPIRATION OR....LINKS TO A GOOD WEBSITE..they have to be acheivable! I have seen Christies AmAzing ones!! but dont think i'll be able to pick that up a 3 days!!

Thanks Peeps any help is greatly received!!

Great news about saturday...no stopping you now..!!

Just wanted to add something that happened to me. I had 2 ladies come in for new sets and like you i was warned that one wanted french the other loved art and the louder the better with colour...! so i had 2 nail art boards covered with alsorts of designs which she had seen but she wanted something a littlle different..! so i was up till 3am looking and designing a whole new board..(i like to please..can you tell) i was really pleased with my end result and went to bed a happy bunny.
When i got to work after 3 hours sleep i did the first lady who was over the moon with her forever french, so on to the next...i finished her lovely new nails and waited for her to tell me what colours she wanted and how many gems she wanted placed on them....i heard nothing....i asked her what nail art she wanted...her reply was " i love them just as they are" i couldnt beleive it...all those hours and she had french...!

But she loved them so im happy.....tired but happy..lol

I think your username is very clever. In fact, there's quite a few good ones. They always make me smile.

Blimey - you're right, GMG - so much detail in such little space!!! :D

Do you use a magnifying glass, Daryl???

That really is fantastic work!

I am in so much awe of you & your work and detail is fantastic. How about some tutorials on how to do some of the simpler designs.

thanks for sharing them with us
