As some of you may know it was my birthday yesterday, I had a really lovely day and was kindly invited to one of my local salons for a bit of a pamper so today I thought I’d talk about my experience and the treatments I had. Firstly the salon I visited was Peach Nail & Beauty Studio, I’ve actually been going to this salon for many years now for brow treatments but up until now I had never had my nails done. I had originally only booked in for nails but my brows were looking rather sluggish so managed to get an appointment just before my nails to have a quick brow tidy, I always absolutely love how my brows look after a wax at Peach, brows really do change the face and the way my makeup looks so I was very happy to finally get these done again.
I then had my nails done and I went for something a little bit different compared to my usual square tip french manicure. I opted for almond shaped nails and a gorgeous pink shade for the Summer season, Carrie (the salon owner) started by prepping my nails for the treatment making sure my nails and cuticles were ready. I have to say Carrie was very thorough getting my nails prepped which is something I haven’t really experienced properly before so that was really nice, there’s nothing worse than having your nails done and for the nails not to last very long due to lack of preparation so this was a huge plus for me.
We then discussed what type of nails I’d go for out of gel or acrylic and Carrie explained to me acrylic would be more hard wearing and longer lasting so of course I went for acrylic, I’ve always had these in the past and got on really well with them so nothing new there. Carrie applied some tips and then cut them down to my desired length and although I was unsure how long I’d like them due to having different shape she worked with me to get the perfect length and shape before applying the acrylic to the nail, she was super precise and constantly made sure each nail was the same length and shape which was fab!
Shaping and extensions done it was time to buff, smooth and prep for colour! As mentioned I fancied a change from my usual french manicure and opted for a fabulous Shellac colour Carrie was actually wearing this colour and it really caught my eye, this dusky pink is just perfect it’s called Rose Bud and it’s a gorgeous colour! I’ve had so many compliments on the colour so far and everyone has said how much they love my nails. I’m so excited to have these super glamorous nails and have of course booked in for infills for 2.5 weeks time. I’m already thinking about what colour I want next and I think I may have to go for a pale grey shade, I’m all about neutral tones at the moment I love them!
If you’re in the Barnstaple, or North Devon area I’d highly recommend Peach Nail & Beauty Studio, it’s a super friendly and very professional salon that I shall continue to use, the salon offers a range of treatments from waxing to nails, tanning to massage!

Let me know what you think of my new nails and if you’ve been changing things up lately, I really love this new shape I feel super feminine… feline almost, Meow!
