"A goal should scare you a little but excite you a lot"

I started training in August 2013 in Manicure, Gel Sculpting, Gel Extension and Nail Art. Working full-time as a bank cashier I did nails as a 'hobby' working mobile and from my own home. In 2014 I began renting a space in a local beauty salon working evenings and weekends whilst keeping my full time job. A year passed and my client base was building up and my confidence was growing. I moved into a busy hair salon in 2015, I gave birth to my first child in the June and reduced my hours to part-time but continued to work evenings and weekends with my nails. My time was precious and of course with a new born I wanted to spend all my time with them but I continued to grow my nail business. September 2017 saw the birth of my second child and by this time my business was super steady. My business grew on word of mouth and clients visiting the hair salon. However a huge part was built on the social media platforms. As I planned my time carefully around my two young children, my day job and my own business I went on to train in Liquid and Powder Enhancements in Sept/Oct 2018. Thing's started to go crazy and before long I was losing time with my precious children, working my part time job and using every night in the week and weekends to build my business. Something had to give....

December 2018 I made the decision to quit my 'secure' part time job and go full time with my nail business. My husband was anxious, however he trusted me and I was confident I had done the right thing. This was my time to do something for me. In February 2019 I made the massive decision to open my own premises under the same name 'Nails 2 Love'. We put the work in as a family with some help of a few close friends and made it somewhere special for my loyal clients, a place to relax and enjoy. A place of luxury, something a bit different from the rest. I could not be happier. I still have goals and ambitions in life but this has certainly been one of the best so far.

Lots of love

Professional Makeup Artist

“Beauty is power. The right makeup enhances that: it’s a women’s secret.”

I am a fully trained and qualified makeup artist, specialising in make-up application, occasion make-up and editorial looks. Having trained in Glasgow with Scottish Beauty Expert Training Academy in 2016, I have gained lots of experience glamming up clients for all occasions, from working mobile to being salon-based. The beauty industry has always been a huge passion of mine, although I have lots of other goals and dreams too. Since September 2019, I have been living my dream after joining Rosie at Nails 2 Love while studying at university to become a primary school teacher. Having been a client and friend of Rosie’s since almost the beginning of her journey, it is an absolute pleasure for me to work alongside Rosie and see how her dream has become a reality through her hardworking and dedication to her business. I am so keen to grow my business and offer new services that my clients will love as much as I do. I feel so grateful to work in such a high class salon and have the support of my gorgeous clients.

Aftercare & Advice image
You now have a lovely set of nails, but how do you ensure that they will last?
Although the products I use are extremely hard wearing they are not bullet proof and will require some TLC at home.

1. Treat your nails like Jewels, NOT tools.
2. I highly recommend you apply cuticle oil daily to your enhancements / gel polish to help protect your nails. It will keep your natural nails, polished nails or enhancements feeling tough and flexible. Repeated use can help drive oils into natural nails and enhancements, maximising the benefits and reducing service breakdown.
3. Avoid handling food/products which might stain the gel polish /enhancements, such as curry or self tanning products. Wearing gloves where possible will help prevent this. 
4. Reduce exposure to heat. i.e sun beds, sauna's and long soaks in the bath. 
5. Wear protective gloves for housework, gardening, DIY etc. Household chemicals will damage your gel polish/enhancements and dry out your natural nails. 
6. If you break a nail or a nail begins to lift, please reschedule a repair appointment. Avoid using glue or plasters as a temporary measure as this may trap moisture between the nail and enhancement, which can result in an infection. 
7. Do not pick off/bite off nail enhancements as this will severely damage your natural nail plate and the regrowth can be painful.
8. Always book your nail appointment 2-4 weeks apart depending on your own growth to maintain the quality of your enhancement/gel polish. Beyond 4 weeks is not recommended.
