Hair Rehab – Clip in Plait

I have NEVER in my life used hair extensions, but not because I haven’t wanted to – as believe me, I’ve lusted after long, thick locks – but because I thought they’d be dead tricky to use.  How would I know which colour to get? Would they look obviously fake?

Toni & Guy – Fashion Fix Hair

I absolutely love getting my hair put up and although I can make a good effort myself, nothing beats getting it tackled and tamed by a pro!  One thing that stops me getting my hair done before an event/wedding though, is the amount of time that I need to factor in to what usually is usually an already tightly planned schedule!!

This is where Toni & Guy’s Fashion Fix is a dream 😍!  Going to your appointment with pre washed and dried hair, means that once you pick from the below Fashion Fix styles, you can be out and looking fab in 30 mins.

Primark Falsies – My ‘Go To’ for Longer Nails!

I’ve made no secret of my love for Primark’s false nails over on my Instagram (if we’re not following each other, click HERE and let’s be Insta friends 😀), so thought they deserved a wee shout on the blog.

At £1, you can’t really go wrong with these bad boys. They do them in a couple of different shapes, catering to individual styles and preferences, but my fav are def the Almond range.  Giving a bit of length and a soft shape – they’re ideal for day and night use.

Gel Extensions for Natural Looking Long Nails

After getting back my holiday and sending a picture of a sparkly new addition to my finger, after the initial ‘oooohs’ and ‘aaaaahs’ from family and friends, I was hit with a resounding ‘now you need to get your nails done’!

I’m a terrible nail biter, so I felt my short little nails could also do with a bit of elongating.  Having never had any form of gel polish before, I was a little hesitant on what to go for – gel or acrylic? I also struggled on where to go.  Sure there are plenty of nail salons in Aberdeen, but I’d heard some horror nail stories and didn’t want to end up with wrecked or  super broken nails after.

Upon recommendation, I got in touch with Linton and Mac who were great at giving me advice over the phone, telling me the differences between acrylics and gel extensions.  Opting for the gel (a lesser evil on nail damage compared to acrylics – apparently!) I booked my appointment and headed along.

Kayleigh was also so good at letting me know the process and was lovely chatting with her through the 1hr 15 appointment.  With a great selection of colours, I opted for this festive red.

Advising that the nails usually last 2-3 weeks before needing infills (or removal), I left the salon admiring my talons!

I love love love my longer nails, if only I could grow my nails this long in real life (and save me from the £45 bill! 😀)
