Nail Art By Emily Gilmour, Friday 6:30 – 9:00 pm
Emily has been working as a freelance nail artist creating miniature works of art on people’s nails for the last six years. She enjoys creating different images for clients whether it’s clean simple designs for an occasion or fantastical and elaborate for a photo-shoot. Emily has worked with an array of brands, people and magazines over the years that include; Swarovski, Alaska Thunderfuck from Ru Pauls Drag Race, Lucy’s Magazine and Factice Magazine. The thing she loves most about her practice is seeing the joy on people’s faces after creating their choice of design or vision that they’d imagined on a small canvas. Her job gives her the chance to capture a small part of someone’s personality in a semi-permanent art form.
Cost: £5 for two nails minimum (£2.50 per additional nail thereafter)
Time: 10-15 min per person
First come first serve basis (Time sheet sign up will be available)
