Anyone who reads my blog posts knows how much I love working at events, weddings, hens, press days, product launches!! I get to meet so many interesting people at these events, and it just makes my job so much fun! (Lots of love to all my lovely home clients too! xxx)
A while ago I was emailed by the lovely team at Alighieri to discuss doing nails at Casa Luna, aka Italy in Old Street! They were telling me how they will be transforming an apartment in Old Street into a gorgeous shopping experience with a restaurant (Roberta from Pasta Evangelists was the chef and OMG the food looked amazing!)
I was asked to pop into the studio in Hatton Gardens a few weeks before the event so we could choose colours – it’s much easier to only offer a select few at events as there is always a time limit, and I was asked to do the logo as nail art, it looks like a bit like a cross, harder to draw in gel polish than it looks!
At the event people booked an appointment and came into the ‘departure lounge’ where they were given a boarding pass and taken through to ‘Italy’! I was set up as a “Nail and Chain” bar, where you have your nails done while looking at the gorgeous chains, then they headed through and try on all the Jewellery once I was done prettifying there nails!
When I do events I always offer gel polish (using ‘The Gel Bottle’) I think it’s the best as the nails are 100% dry which makes touching things, eating and drinking much easier. I did have one lovely lady once smudge rehaulr polish at an event multiple times and even on her white dress, bad times! So gels are the best for all events!!!
Office manicures are back, hens and weddings are back, and nails at events are back! I’m feeling a great sense of normality now and am loving seeing happy faces with shiny nails once again!
