As my eyes water in this forever changing English weather, my eyeliner never stays on for long. I decided that it was time to go permanent. Having seen pictures of the work that Daisy had done recently, I knew that she was the right lady for the job. I wanted permanent eyeliner on the top and bottom of my eyelids.
On entering the salon I was asked to fill out a medical form, which took longer than expected as my hands I must admit were shaking. I was nervous about the procedure. After taking my form Daisy instructed me to lie down on the bed. I was asked what look I was going for with the eyeliner and then the pre-num was applied to my eyes.
Daisy told me that it would feel a little uncomfortable at first but then I would not feel anything. They say to never trust a bold barber but I felt safe trusting a beautiful beautician; I instantly relaxed after Daisy had talked me through it. When the pre-num had been on for 15 minutes Daisy began.
I could hear the hum of the needle and the music that was playing in the background. All I felt was a slight scratching at first and then nothing. When I say nothing it did feel like a wet cotton bud sliding from side to side over my eyelids which was a nice feeling. Three layers were added to my eyes, these are called passes.
After the procedure my eyes felt sore but this was to be expected. To say I was pleased with the results would be an understatement. I had to keep my eyes dry for a week after and I was told that I could loose up to 50% of the colour but would go back for a top up 4 to 6 weeks later.
To anyone out there that wears eyeliner on a daily basis, stop what you're doing and get in contact with Daisy. You will look fantastic and save yourself so much time and money. It is only two hundred and fifty pounds for what I had done.

I love to paint my nails, its quite thearaputic. The only problem I have is that they do not last more than two days before they chip. So when I heard about gel nails at Ruby's corner (that were on offer) I had to get them. With gels your polish could last up to a month, a date with Prince Harry could not keep me away. I decided to treat myself and have my fingernails and toes done.
On arriving at Chez Titine the nail technician who was extremely friendly and made me feel as if I was catching up with an old friend sat me down. She then proceeded to buff my nails and file them to achieve the perfect shape. Buffing I am told is an important part as it helps the gel polish to grip to the nail.
The colour choice was limited but I have been told that more colours are on order. I picked black and red. After putting the gel polish on which was called Geleration, I had to place both my hands and toes under a UV lamp to allow them to dry. After this process, a coat of finish was added to my nails.
Within a few minutes my nails were dry. I have had nothing but compliments about how they look. I have had them on for a few weeks now and I'm secretly hoping that they will chip so I can have them re-done. I cannot wait to see what exciting new colours will be available.
