Hello Again.

As I have mentioned already am Katy; I am from Northampton, UK. I live with my partner Paul and our cat Hugo.

I have a mobile nail and beauty business and this is where you can find details on what services I offer as well as my blog.

I have always had an interest in nails, make up and beauty products and from the age of 15 I have always taken pride in my nails. I have had acrylic extensions, manicures and gel polish. In 2010 I completed a course in acrylic and gel nail extensions. Which lead to me working part time in the evenings on top of my full time job. I built up a regular client base and enjoyed working with nails like this.

In September 2014 I enrolled on a beauty therapy course at a local college. I completed this course, part time for an academic year. Following successful completion of this course I added waxing, eyebrow and eyelash tinting, manicure, pedicure, facials and makeup to my offering.

Throughout 2015 (very late to this I know!) I started following some beauty and make up bloggers and vloggers and now I rarely go a day without reading a blog or watching a makeup tutorial. When watching these I kept thinking about how much I would love to start my own page.

This website was created by me ( and Paul, mainly Paul). All views stated here are my own.

Welcome again and thank you for following this journey with me.
