Hi guys jut have to share this with you all...............
Got a call from Liza on Thursday..........nothing unusual there you might say, but it was brill and exiting news !!!!!!

Can I do a Photo Shoot this weekend....????.........Can I, oh blimey yes I can!!!!!!
The Shoot was for a french high fashion magazine called Jalouse..........the shoot was for the november issue..........

Well, it was manic, fun and wicked..........
The model had a beautiful figure, beautiful face but oh my what nails lol...........and a beautiful nature...........

So did a full set of Fabric#, fast and simple..........
They wanted a very natural look, so CND Nostalgia..........was my choice and they loved it...................

What was really funny was, them working around me and not me around them lol.......... The make up artist Dele from Holy Cow, is absolutely brilliant............the Hairdresser Gareth from Julian Watson Agency was something else to watch.........and the stylist Charles Davis, what a sweetie........and Seto the photographer what a nut but a professional nut, talent, vision he just lives and breathes pictures....
The brilliant thing was the input they allowed me.......... fancy someone asking me what would look best lol..........well clients yea right no probs, but this is something so different and new to me..............So stylist and technician consulted as you do over a cup of coffee and a few cigaretts........

The studio was brill and well catered for......lights, windmachine, action and of course fab food and drink to keep us all going through the day.......
The dressing room, was brill, never seen so many lights lol.......
But the best thing was .....my nail desk lol.............. Yesterday, I customised an ironing board that I found in a corner.......... made my job so easy and fun.......... it was like working in my Salon, they all wet themself's laughing but thought it was the coolest idea.

Today the ironing board got left in the corner as it was just re-varnishing and solar oil and speed spraying ..........We now have one young Belgium
model, hooked on Solar oil, I gave her a little bottle and she sniffed it most of the day lol..............
Speed Spray is the most amazing thing, spray the models hands, by the time the pics are being shot her hands look so lovely, not dry and horrid..........

So I have to thank Liza for this great opportunity, may it be the first of many... So now I can't wait for the Mag to come out to see my name in print in the credits.............
This didn't earn me any money but I learned so much, and I can't wait to learn some more lol...........
Enough rambling from me, just had to share this with you all.............

Cheers girls for all those lovely messages..........huggs to all xxxxx

Yep lets hope so, it was a truly amazing weekend..............
I have loads of piccies, but most of them are on set.......Now I would to post them, but as the mag is not out till November I feel it would not be right to publish work that has not been approved by the photographer..............but I can post one I took, as it is just her in her natural looks and my nails.........
The rest will be shown later I promise xxxxxx

RUTHIE BABY!!!
i'm soooooo glad you enjoyed the experience, i knew you would!
i know i was at the end of the phone for you, but you didn't really need me, you did great!
some people are incredulace that we sometimes do jobs for nothing, but , these jobs are great fun, you make some great contacts, & you get the credits in the mag.
i just can't always justify traveling to london early sat & sun morning, not all the time.
so, i gave my mate ruth a ring, i knew she could cut it, even though she didn't think she could ( she had a dream friday nght about that ironing board!)
let's look forward to many more eh ruth!
