I'm Karen's daughter Molly and I'm 15.
Being the daughter of a beautician is fantastic. I take it for granted that i can have my waxing, eyelash tints and nails done whenever I like (plus the occasionally massage!) with no charge. Because my Mum is always so nice about giving me treatments, I promised to write some entries for her blog. I think it's the least I can do, and besides, I've never seen her so excited by a product!
I didn't actually used to be a fan of nails. I'm a nail biter, so normal polish doesn't last long, and I just don't have the patience to sit still while Mum removes my Shellac (which lasts 3 weeks but needs soaking to come off). Vinylux is a different story though. I absolutely love it! Firstly, it dries in 8.5 minutes (so I don't get nagged for smudging it), secondly it lasts for a week and resists the odd nibble, and most importantly, the colour range is incredible! I take longer now to choose my colour than Mum does to paint it on.
On 28th June, I had my nails painted with Vinylux for the school Summer Ball. I had Sugared Spice - not a colour I would normally choose, but it matched my dress so perfectly that there was really no other choice. My fingernails lasted a whole week before chipping slightly - but my toenails were the real surprise. My Mum painted them the day before the ball in the same colour and added some jewels to the largest nail. We thought that we might have to redo the jewels the next day because of my shoes, but no, they were perfect. As I'm writing this (the 12th July) the varnish on my toes is as good as the day they were painted!
The photo shows me in my Summer Ball dress and shoes. You can just about spot by Sugared Spice toenails peeping out. Mum also did my friend's nails in Lobster Roll which you can see in the picture.
I've really enjoyed watching my Mum grow used to this product, and I love getting my nails done. I'll be as interested as her to see your comments on Vinylux.
