What better way to welcome the beginning of spring than with a vibrant new Shellac colour range from CND! The latest collection ‘Art Vandal’ has already been so popular with shellac clients. For those of you that don’t know last year we became stockists of Vinylux polish. Vinylux is a 7 day, chip resistant wear (this theory is confirmed after testing from our Elite nail tech Emma), fast drying 2 step application that lasts amazingly compared to usual high street varnishes! Apply vinuylux just like your average nail polish, with 2 generous coats of colours followed by 1 coat of Vinylux top coat. With over 100 colours to choose from Vinylux is perfect for those who are unable to have shellac on due to work, or for those wishing to match fingers to toes? Lastly if we don’t have it in stock we’ll order it in for you!

Product of the month
This month Charlene has chosen her product of the month to be Agera Rx Oil Free Moisturiser. This oil-free hypoallergenic moisturiser is specifically designed for normal / oily or oily / acne prone skin types. The cream forms a dry invisible barrier moments after application to seal in moisture and keep out harmful environmental elements such as pollution, dryness and wind. It provides a perfect base to apply make-up on. Tocopheryl (Vitamin E) a potent antioxidant prevents free radical damage and Beta-Glucaderm promotes good skin texture and health. Charlene says “I use this moisturiser every day & night, it doesn’t sit on my skin feeling greasy like most I’ve used before, the price is really reasonable as well”.
Good Luck Michelle
So the time is almost here for our lovely Michelle (clinic Supervisor) to take her maternity leave. From all of us we wish Michelle and her partner all the best with the final stages of pregnancy & we look forward to meeting the baby next month.

A word from Tracy – Elite Permanent Make-up Artist, Trainer and Judge
Everyone is asking for microblading. Some clients ask for this treatment without knowing truly what it is and other clients have carried out research and know this is the effect they want for their brows. Why so popular? Is this new? What are the results compared to the current more traditional method of digital permanent makeup? Let’s look at some of the facts for those considering this treatment.
So what is it?
The method uses a hand instrument with disposable needles to create a feathering hair technique.
The micro needles implant delicate crisp eyebrow hair strokes using a medical grade EU approved pigments colour to suit each individual. Only the best quality pigments are used to achieve the great results and retention. The end result is soft, flawless and natural beautiful brows. People love Microblading as it enhances their natural features and overall appearance without the brows dominating the face. The results can last up to 1 year and its recommended a yearly ‘refresh’ boost around 12-18months.
The whole process of Microblading takes about an hour. A perfecting boost is required 6-8 weeks later to implant more colour and perfect the eyebrow shape if needed but not always necessary.
What is the difference between digital method and microblading.
Essentially any tool that implants colour into the skin is a tattoo or known as permanent makeup. The current digital method utilises a machine with a hand piece that implants pigment using safe disposable needles into the skin. The needle moves up and down and pushes the pigment into the Dermis of the skin. Again using pigments not inks. It offers power and works well particularly on difficult skin like oily or weathered. It is an all-rounder tool that can be used for hair stroke brows and powdered, eyes and lips.
Microblading uses a new disposable hand tool or reusable (only with autoclave) with a new disposable needle inserted in the end of the hand piece. There is now electric or digital method to action the implantation. The technique is all in the artists skill to know where in the dermis to implant the pigment and to create a crisp authentic hair stroke. There is no doubt with the right needle and technique beautiful simple crisp looking hair strokes can be created using this method. The end result is soft, flawless and natural beautiful brows.
