LOCAL REVIEW // NAILS BY BEAU BELLES BEAUTY

Last week I was approached by the lovely Mic, asking if I wanted to pop down to her 'salon' and give it a little review for the blog. I jumped at the chance, especially because she's the host of a local company. Unfortunately, Luton gets so much bad rep, that all the good parts of Luton often get overlooked for the bad parts instead.

There's plenty of great things going on in Luton as well as lots of great businesses, so to be able to write about Beau Belles Beauty was a great opportunity that I really enjoyed! Mik was great because she explained to me all about her past experiences studying beauty and how much of a passion it was for her. She explained how it's a tough and competitive business, how people charge far too much for treatments, which led onto her deciding to start up her own business with more affordable prices. What started in the spare room of her house eventually expanded into two quirky but awesome cabins in her back garden! It wasn't like anything I'd ever seen before but essentially each cabin was like a mini spa in one room with everything you needed on hand. They were both decorated beautifully as well and were kitted out with not just the necessary beauty equipment but also a TV and a heater (which was ideal because it was freezing outside!).

Mik herself was so great, explaining each step and taking her time. She offered me a cup of tea and didn't rush through the treatment by only doing the necessities for i.e JUST painting my nails and leaving it at that; she did coat upon coat to make sure the colour was right and that the studs would stick. She made me feel incredibly at ease, which I was especially thankful for. I do admit, one thing I hate about getting my nails done is the awkward silence or forced conversation between you and whoever is doing your nails, but Mik was the complete opposite and was lovely. We ended up chatting away the whole time about all sorts from how more and more companies work with bloggers now and how people charge way too much for treatments generally which means their target audience - people like you and me - can't actually afford it! So not only was she lovely to talk to, it was also really interesting to hear about what she was telling me.

And, of course, my nails look amazing. She created the exact look I wanted - simple, but edgy without being too over the top. She used gel nails and my nails have lasted ages (since Thursday so far!) and haven't chipped once. Although I picked quite a simple look (which I love because black can be both edgy and sophisticated), I have looked at the Facebook page and seen that she has done some amazing nail art too, some quite complicated looking.

She also hosts things like children's birthday parties or hen do's which is no surprise - the cabins are so beautiful and funky that it seems like a great thing to do as a group. It really is different being that it's all set in cabins and they do have that special homely feel to them as well. Better yet, the prices are very affordable! She always has lots of special deals on but also has that lovely friendly charm - she uses her Facebook and Twitter to actually talk to her clients and get to know them better, which we all know is a sign of a trust worthy company.

I can't wait to show you all the ways I've styled my different outfits with these nails!
