Acrylic 3D Nails

Now, I'm not one to post about beauty really. Don't get me wrong, I love my hair products, cosmetics and false eyelashes but I just don't feel I can write very much about them, so I just leave that to the lovely bbloggers out there!

But I am obsessive about my nails. There's rarely a time when I don't have my extensions on covered in silk wraps, acrylic or gel! I just think a beautiful, well-kept set of nails instantly make your hands look better. Now whilst I get mine done at a salon (I'm lucky enough to have an Auntie with a nail & beauty salon!), I don't think you need to spend a fortune to make your talons look nice but a salon trip is always a nice treat!

Anyway, back to the point... When it comes to nails and beauty, I'm up for trying pretty much anything. I'd seen loads of photos about of girls' nails with 3D bows applied and they look amaaazing! So, on telling this to my Auntie, she set to work and created these little beauties for me. Cool, no?!

I originally thought that these little bows were just plastic pieces that were applied with nail glue but my Auntie actually moulded this from acrylic, I was so impressed! I've got them on my thumb and ring finger of each hand and each bow probably took about a minute to create. It makes a nice change to the standard French manicure that I usually end up picking and I just think the bows are so cute! 

Bows aren't your only option though, you can also opt for a floral design, if that's more to your taste. 

Oceanic Nail & Beauty Salon is open Tuesday - Saturday and offers an extensive range of nail treatments, waxing, HD Brows, Eyelash Extensions and Sunbed facilities amongst many other things.

So, if you live near or around Sheffield and fancy paying a visit to the Sheffield outskirts (think rolling hills, like something out of Emmerdale..) you'll find the details for Oceanic Salon here:

So, what do you think of my nails? Are you a fellow nail salon obsessive?
