Meet Gundega. She's a frustrated nail artist who works in the Cobella salon in Selfridges. As you can tell from her customised name badge, she loves crystals and creating pretty nail art (even if it is on the back of her iphone), plus she loves glitter almost as much as me (and that's a lot!).
When Gundega worked in her home country of Latvia she would work 12 hours a day in her own salon creating nail art for her fellow nail art-obsessed clients and cherished every minute. She told me that although she loves doing manis and pedis, she just wishes that us Brits loved nail art as much she does - if she had her way she'd be creating different designs on every client.
Like an artist, Gundega uses brushes and her creative flair for her nail creations and as she speedily did my nails with full creative freedom (she boasts she can do a full set of acrylics/gels in 45 minutes, wow!), she gushed about her love for her work. I watched in amazement as she quickly sculpted acrylic tiny flowers on the tips of my fingers. As you can see, they are just amazing, I can't stop looking at them! So c'mon girls, get down to Gundega and let her work her magic.
