Educator Training 2017

Its that time again!! Every two years the NZ and AUS Artistic Educators retrain to keep at the top of our game. Its SO important to keep learning, keep refreshing your skills and staying at the top of your game. Artistic expect the highest standards from us educators and that is something I love. I leave June 9th and return June 16th and will be blogging about the intense week once i return. Educating is such a rewarding part of my job and I certainly encourage anyone thinking about it to take that step.

Stocked up

Since becoming a distributor for Artistic Nail Design the support from everyone has been mind blowing. We still haven't advertised and products are literally flying off the shelves. So much so that we have worked very hard the last few months and invested in more and more stock. The growth has been so huge that we are in the process of renovating our new stock room. I can't wait to show you once completed. THANK YOU X

Bruce Springsteen 

I had one of the most amazing experiences in my career. I was honoured to do a rock hard acrylic nail (Guitar finger) for Bruce Springsteen before his amazing performance in Christchurch. I expected him to be a lovely guy and that's exactly what he is.

GIN WIGMORE 

Thursday 26th November 2015 Gin Wigmore and her incredibly talented band played at The IsaacTheatre Royal in Christchurch and they played loud and hard. I LOVE Gin and am a huge fan of their music especially their latest album #BLOODTOBONE. My 3 yr old daughter Chloe is utterly obsessed with New Rush on the album too. I LOVE these moments life and when you met someone you admire and they are truly genuine and humble it makes the experience so much more incredible.

    NZ Cup and Show Week

    My top tips for the races and why I love NZ Cup & Show week 
    1) Whatever you wear, wear it with a smile. Also remember even if those heels hurt, they complete your look so push on through the day with them on. They look good!

    2) I love the vibe of NZ Cup & Show Week. It's the time of the year everyone gets so passionate about what they wear. Nails are a huge part of fashion now and I love how much thought people are putting onto their nail art designs.

    3) I am most looking forward to seeing everyone dressed up and 'The Nails'

    ARTISTIC ROCK HARD WORLD TOUR 2

    Mel attended the Artistic Nail Design ROCK HARD WORLD TOUR 2 in Auckland this month (Nov 2014) along with many super talented nail techs we all learnt some incredible skills from two of the best in the nail industry. Dafne Fernandez all the way from Mexico and Kylie Claire from Tasmania, Australia. 

    Mel also caught up with the beautiful and incredibly talented Leah Light, someone who has been an inspiration and a supportive friend to Mel since the beginning.

    Mel ALSO met Penny from Monaco Nails and visited her AMAZING training facility and shop. It would have been rude not to have a shop, SO that's exactly what we did.

    Miss Bliss Volunteers at The Ronald McDonald House

     

    I am very proud to have started volunteering at The Ronald McDonald House. Its a truly amazing place run by the most incredible people, so I am absolutely honoured to be able to be a small part of it all.

    I will be calling in one Friday a month and two Fridays in November and December to spend the afternoon painting nails and hopefully bringing a little colour and joy to families spending time there.

    Being able to use my job to do a little good is the BEST feeling :)

    Miss Bliss and TV2's The 4.30 Show

    I had the pleasure of doing Eve Palmers nails for the new TV2 show 'The 4.30 Show'

    These nails were loads of fun to do because Eve's Stylist 'Lee Hogsden' had everything planned to perfection. Lee had seen some nails I had done and wanted to incorporate those with the bright colours of the 4.30 show set and Eve's dress she would be wearing for their first photo shoot.

    Make Up Blogger Painted Lips did a Q & A with Miss Bliss 

     

    So as well as keeping up with the latest colour trends when it comes to makeup I like my nails to look super glam as often as I Can. I met Mel Aka Miss Bliss my fabulous nail guru just over a year ago and I can say hand on heart I would never go to anyone else.

    Mel's focused,fun colourful attitude is what I had been searching for in Christchurch for years. I always wanted someone who could take my personality and develop it  into designs that matched my event or my outfit its safe to say Mel Nailed It every time so to speak.
