Give Your Nails Some New Year Love

Towards the end of last year I noticed a real change in my nails and cuticles. The cold weather was playing havoc with them and my nails had become really brittle. My cuticles were drier than ever and I needed a fast remedy. I’d heard of the brand Nail Doctor but never tried the products.

I bought 2 products from their range of nail remedies. I liked that on the packaging it states the problem and solution to whatever your nail issue is.

My first problem – Fragile nails that are in need of support. My nails were breaking off one after the other and had stopped growing. I always had lovely nails before. You just need to paint on one coat to clean dry nails and then paint them with your usual nail colour and top coat afterwards. I noticed a difference within a week! I keep a coat of it on my nails all the time now!

Nail Doctor Solution – Wrap it Up! Liquid bandage for nail emergencies. £7.14 from Boots.com


My second problem – Dry cracked, ragged cuticles. My cuticles were so dry that they were falling off in chunks. I had to do something to stop it happening, bacause they were getting really sore even with hand cream! It says to use it weekly by leaving on for 10 minutes and pushing back cuticles then rinsing off. I used it every other day and got incredible results within a fortnight. Now I use it weekly to maintain the results. It smells lovely and citrusy too!

Nail Doctor Solution – Critical cuticle Care Cuticle Oil Massage £7.14 from Boots.com

So all of you out there that have given up hope for beautiful nails. Go out there and buy these!!

GELeration by Jessica Cosmetics

Today I did my first Geleration treatment. My client was really pleased with the results and I’m seeing her again in 3 weeks, so i’ll keep you updated. She didn’t have a strong colour because of the job she does but here’s a pic.

I liked the easy application and the fact that it took the same time to apply as normal polish. The best part was GELeration dries instantly under the UV lamp so my client left with dry nails.

This treatment is going to be great for holidays, brides and anyone who’s polish doesn’t last very long!

About GELeration

Is it a polish? Is it a gel? Paints like polish, performs like gel. GELeration soak-off gel polish is the new generation in soak-off systems. No chips, no touch ups and no fading, Just long lasting protection, perfection and the promise of everlasting, beautiful nails.

Tell me a bit about yourself?

I am born and bred in Reading Berkshire and am the youngest of 6 kids. My parents came to Reading in the early 1960’s from Barbados and worked in various places around Reading. I was educated locally and went to University at Winchester and Surrey to study media and radio. I have worked in commercial and BBC media organisations for 10 years and enjoy being creative and working with different people. I enjoy watching films, dining out, cooking and baking, going to gigs, festival, theatre, museums and galleries.

What in your make up bag?

Always Vaseline to keep lips moisturised – it is a must!

Hand cream (Nivea or Soap & Glory) to keep my hands and cuticles moisturised – I can’t stand dry hands!

Nail file – my nails always snag and tear so I always have a few of these

Hair clips & hair bands to tame fly away hair that won’t lie flat!

Perfume – love fresh sweet scents

Mac Compact – a great base

Avon / Boots No 7 Primer for the face, it keeps my oily skin matt and enables my make up application to be flawless

Mascara – to make my eyelashes look as long as possible

Eye shadow – I tend to wear pinks / purples that suit my skin tone

Lip gloss – that has subtle colour for neutral lips

Tweezers to pluck my eye brows

What your skincare routine?

Cleanse, tone and moisturise!

Cleanse – I tend to use a facial wash that is suited to oily skin such as Neutrogena

Tone – I often use facial wipes to gently remove any excess dirt

Moisturise – I moisturise using an oil free moisturiser that has SPF and will ensure my skin is mattified.

What one beauty product couldn t you live without?

Lip balm / Vaseline – I simply cannot have dry lips!

Who do you most admire for their style and beauty and why?

Beyonce – she is naturally beautifully with great skin tone and bone structure. Her make up can transform her to look completely different and she has natural radiance.

What your skincare routine?

I am a bit weird about my skincare and cleanse my face 3 times a session twice a day!

On my face I use Neutrogena Hydrating Cleansing Wipes, followed by Neutrogena Spot Stress Control Facial Scrub, followed by Boots Tea Tree Foaming Wash. During the day I apply Nivea Visage Oil Free Moisturising Fluid, then Clinique Super Defense. In the evening I use Boots Tea Tree Moisturising Overnight Gel. On my body I use Dove Beauty Body Lotion and shea butter on any really dry bits. At night I use Re-Gen Oil.

What one beauty product couldn t you live without?

I couldn’t live without good old shea butter. My mum gets it in its purest form from Ghana and it’s amazing. I sometimes get dry patches on my face and use it on them as well as on eczema. It’s also great as a lip balm, a scalp moisturiser, softening heels and great on knees and elbows. It’s the best thing ever!

Who do you most admire for their style and beauty and why?

At the moment I am loving Rihanna’s look. She isn’t afraid of trying new things and knows what works for her. She has a great figure and always exudes confidence – I wish I could do that!
