I am back! And ready to go! Please have a read about the measures I've put in place, for your safety, and mine.
Let’s start with PPE - from your arrival and during the appointment, you’ll be required to wear a face covering. I’ll be wearing a mask and a sexy face shield and gloves. On arrival, you must sanitise your hands, with sanitiser that I’ll provide, and before your treatment begins, you will wash your hands. Where possible, you should attend alone, and bring as few belongings with you as you can. Ideally, you should let me know what you’d like done ahead of your appointment, so there’ll be no handling of mobile phones during the treatment, and we can get straight to work! Payment will be card only or through the booking system.
Appointment times will have to be spread out to avoid any overlap and to allow for a deep clean between clients. I must run on time, so please don't be late. Please also ensure that you select the correct treatment at time of booking. If you’re not sure what option to choose for your desired nail art, please get in touch. I will have to be strict and can only do what that timeframe will allow. I know that many of you may want extensions when we return. However, we are expected to keep our appointment times as short as possible to avoid prolonged contact. With the reduced capacity due to the additional cleaning times, I think it’s fair that for the first month or so, I will not be offering extensions. This means I can get more clients in throughout the day, so hopefully no one misses out! From a safety point of view, extensions create a lot more dust than an overlay, and dust can be a carrier for the virus. But don’t worry, with a Calgel overlay, your natural nails will grow in no time, and I can still make you look fierce!
Please, please, please, if you are experiencing any symptoms, a fever, a cough, loss of sense of taste and smell, reschedule your appointment. Cancellation fees will be waived in these instances. Please contact me if you develop any of these symptoms up to seven days after your treatment. We have to all do our bit to keep everyone safe and well. Likewise, if I become unwell, appointments will be rescheduled, potentially at short notice. Please follow government and NHS regulations when it comes to self isolating, and test and trace.
In your booking confirmation email, you’ll be given all the new information you’ll need now that I’m working from my home nail art studio! If you’re not comfortable with cats or dogs, please let me know, and I’ll make sure my babies are kept out of your way!
My retail shelves are fully stocked with new oils, hand sanitisers and other treats. My online store is still open, with some press on nails and gift vouchers. I’m also still taking orders for custom press ons if you fancy something a lil extra or a gift for a far away friend!
Things will be different, in many ways! But I hope I can still provide you with a great experience and some fabulous nails! I can’t wait to see you all! If any of you are struggling right now (we all have those days!), please reach out to me. I miss chatting with you my girls every day, and I’m more than happy to lend an ear.
Lots of love,
