  • Curving Nails - An Indication Of Cancer?

    0 comments / Posted on by Anna Mae

    People don’t give enough credit to their nails. Your nails can actually be a good indicator as to what’s going on inside the body. For example, ridges in our nails can indicate that the body isn’t receiving enough of a particular vitamin or mineral. However, what a lot of people might not have known is that the nails on the body can actually warn you of a potential problem which is going to occur later on in life, as one woman discovered.

  • Has Nail Art Gone Too Far?

    0 comments / Posted on by Anna Mae

    This week we have seen a horrific nail art technique whereby live ants are being encapsulated in the nails.  Now to be clear this is not a practice we support and although these are only ants it is cruel and barbaric.  Nail art used to be about creating gorgeous nails that were unusual and pretty but lately things have got a little out of hand.  So is it now about attracting attention and not really coming up with something anyone else is going to want to wear?

  • Allergy to Gel Nails Hits the Headlines

    0 comments / Posted on by Anna Mae

    Over the last few days, a media storm has been building after it was announced that dermatologists have issued this stark warning to users of gel nails in the UK.  They are concerned that people are not understanding the risks and as a result, they have deemed that we are in an allergy epidemic and we need to be more aware of what we are potentially doing to our hands and bodies with a seemingly harmless fashion trend. 

     

    Studies Carried Out

    It seems that over the last year the British Association of Dermatologists has been doing some research about why people are attending 13 of the countries dermatology clinics.  The results showed that the chemicals in the manicures are causing a problem for 2.4% of the people who were tested.  The chemical responsible is methacrylate which is a prime component of gel nails, some acrylic nails and gel polishes.  Another study confirmed this by saying that of the 742 people they surveyed, over 19% suffered side effects from their visit to the nail salon, while 16% could directly attribute this to a gel manicure that was carried out in a salon or home studio. 

    What is Happening

    The problem with the chemicals is that they can not only cause an issue to the hands but because we touch our faces, eat and drink etc, we can spread the allergen around the body creating more issues.  Generally, the allergy happens when the chemicals are on the skin rather than the nail itself.  It can cause pain and itching to the hands and fingers, and if spread to the head and face inadvertently patients were experiencing itching and rashes in the hair and scalp.  In rare cases but a point, they felt needed making, the reaction to the chemicals can also affect breathing.  For others that are particularly allergic the nail underneath can also die of fall off which is really not pleasant and very painful and the skin under the nails, or the nail bed, is not meant to be exposed so will be very tender and sore for a long time.  Nails can even fail to grow back correctly which is very depressing for the victim.   As with all products of this nature, patch testing should be carried out before every single application, even if you had no problems previously.  However, this just doesn’t happen and for nearly all salons is not even offered as an option.

    Bling Art Cares

    This is one of the reasons we take so much care to manufacture our nails with ingredients that are known to be hypoallergenic and should not cause a reaction to anyone. The glue we use is medical grade glue which is again designed to ensure that you will not suffer from any unwanted side effects when trying to compliment your look.  If you are concerned about the chemicals that you might be coming into contact with then why not try Bling Art nails today.

  • Do You Love or Hate Rings

    0 comments / Posted on by Anna Mae

    When I was a little girl, my Nanna used to tell me that the only ladies that wore lots of rings were ladies of the night.  I always thought this was a strange thing to say, as she herself wore a single gold band on her left hand because she had married my Grandpa many years before.  Strangely what she was trying to say was that she didn’t like lots of rings on fingers. However, as I got older, I found my own style and for a long time wore many rings, including in time my own wedding ring, engagement ring and eternity ring.  Now the time has gone on, I wear just three rings but do not consider this to be anything other than my personal choice of fashion. How do you feel about rings?  How many do you wear?  How do you choose?

  • The Falsie War

    0 comments / Posted on by Anna Mae

    False nails have been something of a trend for a few decades now. It is fair to say that they lost popularity for a while when gel manicures took the top slot. However, people are beginning to realise what damage this does to their own nails underneath, and it has lost a lot of pace. Not only that but gel manicures are very time consuming and not very liberating. You basically have to pick a colour and get stuck with it for over a month at a time. You are then faced with the maintenance work to make sure it doesn’t look too scrappy, or you have to have the whole lot removed and start again if you are sick of the colour. You can see why people got fed up with it. However for a lot of women returning to falsies is somewhat of a step backwards because after all, they look false right?

  • New Year, New Plans?

    New Year, New Plans?

     

    If you have been restless at work for a while now, why not consider a change? Fashion is still a trendy industry to work in, and manicures are still a substantial part of the future - however, things are changing. Women are starting to take back control, and the age of gel manicures is pretty much over. So if you really want to work on nails what can you do?

    Keep it Fresh

    The biggest problem with gel manicures is the commitment. Whatever nail colour is chosen lasts for weeks, sometimes months and the only way to change it is to spend another stint of time, not to mention hit to the bank balance to change things. This is losing popularity as women want to be able to mix and match their nails on a whim to match outfits and fit with the event they are going to. When you add to this the hideous amount of damage gel nails do to your own nails, it is easy to see why this is no longer the suggested route for the budding nail technician.

    Falsies Are the Future

    We firmly believe and have the research to support our belief, that false nails are the future. They are quick and easy to apply, but we have gone to great lengths to ensure that they are also durable and will not pop off at a critical moment. Now, naturally these can be applied at home, but part of the nail bar ritual is also the social aspect and women still want a little me time and to be pampered. So, you can always have a lucrative business applying falsies and combining this with a hand massage and some TLC to the real nails underneath.

    Nail Art

    Art is still popular - especially around events like Halloween and valentines day etc. Using false nails as a base still means you can be uber creative with your nail art ideas, without needing your clients to have perfect nails, or ruining their real nails with the dreaded gel manicures. It is a trend that is gaining in popularity and certainly worth getting into. We have plenty of options available for nail technicians to stock our nails and create the perfect manicure for their customers.

    Remember the Basics

    Before you open up a nail bar in your kitchen, please do be aware of the basics. Hygiene is vital when you are working with people, and we are seeing a worrying amount of nail technicians who do not have any understanding of sterilisation of tools and essential cleanliness. You will need either disposable tools or an autoclave to ensure that you are providing a proper and hygienic service to your customers. It is not ok to use the same nail file on each client that visits - you can cross contaminate and be the cause of infection spread - which frankly won’t do your reputation any good at all!

    If you would like to know more about our technician offers, please do get in touch - we wish you all the best for a new and successful career in 2018.

  • Warning Signs - Nail Salon Hygiene

    0 comments / Posted on by Anna Mae

    When it comes to getting your nails done in a salon, hygiene might not cross your mind. After all, this is something straightforward and thousands of people have their nails done every day, so what could possibly go wrong. Well, people have germs. Without being too gross, that is the bottom line. While there is technically no risk of bleeding and blood-borne viruses, hygiene actually is just as vital as if you were going to sit in a tattoo parlour and get inked. To keep costs down a lot of nail technicians do not observe hygiene practices, and some just do not think they are needed. Here are a few signs that should help you decide between having that manicure or running for the hills and never looking back.

    0 comments / Posted on by Anna Mae

    Talking nails this week…false nails to be exact.  I do love my nail enamels but my nails are very short – not bitten – but short on purpose.  I like to type and use my iPhone using the pads on the top of my fingers and long nails just get in the way.  I’ve tried growing them and I did succeed. I have had the shellac treatment and my nails looked lovely, however I couldn’t use my phone properly, and besides, I prefer the convenience of having short stubby nails that I can paint on a whim.

    It was both slowly and steadily that Ms Bling rose higher and higher upwards. As she rose, she realised that she was not entirely sure how exactly she was ‘flying’.

She kicked off her shoes and stretched her toes, wiggling them all until they were bobbing like a troupe of ballerinas with her as their choreographer.

    Chapter 1

    She sat stirring her tea, gazing distractedly through the misted window, watching the clouds form, as ominous and as dark as her mood.

    She glanced down at the over-stirred tea swirling around the mug. As she watched, the leaves from the bottom rose to the surface and coalesced into a symbol: the very symbol that had appeared in her dreams more and more recently.
