I am very excited to announce that Blonde Tiger is going to be hosting in-salon nail art workshops taught by yours truly! I’ve talked to so many people who love doing their own nails and they always want my professional tips and tricks on how to create the amazing nail art looks they see online. I’m going to teach you the professional’s way – easy, easy, easy, and fast, fast, fast! These workshops will be small – only 4 people per workshop so everyone gets lots of hands-on practice. Arrive with bare nails and leave with your own art displayed on all ten fingers. Here’s what to expect:
What is it? DIY nail art workshop
Where is it?Â Blonde Tiger
(More dates coming soon!)
How much does it cost?Â $98 per person, includes all in-class supplies, a take-home kit (see below), and refreshments.
How long is it? 3 hours – 2 1/2 hours of workshop with a little refreshment break in the middle. Refreshments provided!
What will we cover?Â OH MY GOSH SO MUCH STUFF:
*Deconstructing nail art looks: aka “how the hell did they DO that?”
*Assembling your tools – nail art tools you didn’t even know that you already had around the house.
*Basic polishing technique – how to polish like a pro (yes, even with your dumb hand!), and is there really a difference in quality between polish brands/prices/etc?
*The perfect DIY French or moon manicure – How to do it without those silly stickers (and how to go beyond the basic pink/white combo)
*Hand-painted designs – brushes vs nail art pens, acrylic paint vs polish, how to do basic designs like leopard spots, stripes, and dots.
*GLITTER and BLING: How to use craft store glitter and rhinestones to embellish your manicure, and super easy ways to get that glitter OFF your nails! No more scrubbing away for hours with remover.
*Where to go for inspiration – I’ll show you some of my favorite nail artists’ blogs
*Where to get your nail art stuff – You’ll get a comprehensive list of where to buy the same things I use in the salon. Some are nail art suppliers and some are just your local craft or stationery store! You’ll be amazed at all the nail art supplies that have been under your nose all along.
Do I get anything to take home?Â Heck yeah! I’ve put together a whole kit for you to use at home. You’ll get all of this:
Workshop Kit Includes:
4-way Nail Buffer
Blonde Tiger Polish Remover
Blonde Tiger Nail Prep
Blonde Tiger Cuticle Oil
Seche Vite Top Coat
2 Nail Art Display Wheels
Glitter (ultrafine) Sample Pack
Glitter Shapes Sample Pack
Rhinestone Sample Pack
Palette Dish for glitter, paint, etc
Sounds great! How do I sign up?Â You can book through my online store, or you can contact me by phone (0498 474 287) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions!
I need a minimum of 2 people to go ahead with any workshop, so, to guarantee that the date you want will run, strong-arm a friend into booking with you! Discounts apply for groups for 4 or more (see below)!
Workshop fee must be paid in full to secure your space. Pay via PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, or EFTPOS. No refunds will be given if cancelled within 7 days of the workshop, however, you will be able to transfer your booking into a future class where there is a space available. You must be 16 years of age or older. You will be working on your own nails as well as practice nails that are provided, so it’s best to arrive with unpolished nails (you will leave with fabulous nails, I promise!). Please wear comfortable, appropriate clothing (i.e., no trailing sleeves). Aprons and protective eyewear will be provided (in 20 years of doing nails, I have never gotten nail polish in my eyes, but I have damn sure gotten it on my pants!).
I have a whole group of friends ready to book! Can I have a discount? Can we do the class on a different day tha the ones listed?
Group bookings are welcome and gift vouchers are available! If you have a group of 4 or more, I’m happy to offer you a discounted rate of $75 per person. The entire group must be paid for at the time of booking in order to secure your space. If you have a group of more than 4, get in touch with me as I may need to arrange an alternate classroom to accommodate you. If your group is in need of a different day/time than the ones I have listed, please contact me as I am quite flexible in this regard.
Can you do a workshop at my fundraiser/work function/birthday party/barn raising?
Do you have an event that you’d like me to take my show on the road for or customise a workshop for your group? Ring or email me to discuss – I’m all ears!
