As part of my birthday present this year my lovely husband Liam bought me a voucher to get my nails done at a rad place called I Scream Nails. The team at I Scream Nails hand paint designs onto each nail from cats to cake, even aliens. For many of you painting your nails is a normal activity. It is a very different story for me. I had worked as a veterinary nurse for the past 8 years until a month ago, that meant because of always having to have clean sterile hands I could never paint my nails. I was so excited to not only have them painted but have custom designed paint jobs like I'd seen in Japanese fashion magazines.
From the moment I arrived at the salon I was blown away. Everything was kawaii, pink and had ice creams everywhere. I couldn't stop staring at everything. I then got given a nail menu with over 50 different nail designs to choose from. They can also design something special just for you, which is incredible. I saw some nail art done of Ursala and Ariel as well as Kanye West and Care Bears.
It was extremely difficult to choose the designs for my nails as every design was something I loved. A perfectly Nerd Burger tailored nail salon. I finally decided on a burger (for Nerd Burger), a hamster, a cupcake, Hello Kitty and my cats Pickle and Sausage.
After just over an hour they were done. I can't stop staring at my hands. The attention to detail is incredible. The cupcakes have little mini 3D sprinkles, the burger has little sesame seeds painted on top and both my cats have little stuck on goggly eyes and their faces were painted to match their personalities.
My favourite part of my nails is my thumbs each painted with an adorable Hello Kitty with a chunky red bow stuck on. I have to be really careful not to bump them into anything.
It was such a luxury to have my nails painted and such a lovely experience.
I feel so special and have been getting so many compliments. I can't wait to visit I Scream Nails again and maybe try out a custom paint job.
If you could get your nails painted any way you wanted, what would you choose?
