For so long now I have wanted to get my nails done, but not had the spare cash but I promised myself it would be my pay day treat! I’m over the acrylic phase of my life (for now anyway) and love the short, neat coloured nails look. I do dabble with my nails but I seriously hate the fact that most nail polishes (even high end) barely last 24 hours without chipping. After asking around for recommendations I went with a lovely little beauty shop called Beauty By Claire Louise. This is a gorgeous shop in a local village called Greenmount. The interior is super chic with vintage and shabby chic decor, furniture and accessories. Just my kind of style!
The over all ambience of the shop was really warm and welcoming.
Inside the shop they have a range of products for the customer to buy including Elemis skin care and HD Brows make up which I would like to try at some point!
Today, I was just after an eyebrow wax and Gelish nails.
Claire was so friendly and she whipped my eyebrows into shape in about 30 seconds flat, if that!! She was also really good at giving me advise about the shape of my eyebrows and how to make them work better for my face. This treatment was £5.
Then to the nails, as you can see I had a huuuuge selection of choice. 125 to be precise!
Those that know me, know that I am not the most adventurous when it comes to colour so I went with a deep grey colour with purple under tones. The shade was “jetset”. I then chose a glittery teal blue colour for my ring finger nails just to add an bit of glitz in there.
This was really quite quick, around 25 minutes. About 30 minutes less than having acrylic nails applied. Claire had the Gelish nail lamp which sets each coat in just 30 seconds.
I am really happy with my nails, its so nice just to have a little pamper every now and again!
These cost £15 and I can expect them to last around 3 weeks if I dont do any washing up between now and then 🙂
It was a lovely experience, Claire was chatty, friendly and interested.
The only very slight bit of feedback was that I have heard lots about the drinks menu at Claire Louise and I was looking forward to seeing it, but today I was not offered a drink.
You can see from the menu they offer a really wide selection of beauty treatments including facials, teeth whitening, semi permenant make up and mens treatments.
