I’m a wife, mother of three, lover of glitter, and amateur wine connoisseur. I may not be your first pick when it comes to killing in a zombie apocalypse but I can certainly smash out a killer set of nails. When my love for nails turned into a passion, my dream career was born. And when I found competitions, I knew I had found my place. I’m a huge advocate for women in business and I aspire to inspire others.
Week 1: Orly
I’m fairly new to the world of meditation and intention setting but already I feel a change within myself and my surroundings. That is why, when this challenge was set I immediately knew it was a perfect fit with the “seeing clearly” theme. I decided to encapsulate my intention in my centre nail, I wrote down “be kind to yourself” and encapsulated the paper, adding gold leaf as I layered the builder gel creating the nail structure. This gave it lots of depth, really emphasizing that the paper is encapsulated. When intention setting, it’s important to surround your space in the right elements like a light/fire source, crystal energy, scent, herbs or wood, animal energy and a central focus. So I tried to depict this in my set. Creating the embellishments out of Orly’s builder gel was really fun and I loved seeing this design come together at the end.
