Due to COVID-19 as you are all aware now La Beaux Hair & Makeup closed its doors and I had to look for new premises again.  I have found a lovely salon on Brook Road, Urmston which is set up perfectly for me.  I have a nail desk space, a lovely little beauty room and a separate room specifically for spray tans.  The girls, Donna and Kath are great, I think we are going to get along just great.  I look forward to seeing you all there in the next couple of weeks when all...

Throat Operation

Posted by NailsXpress on July 9, 2018 at 12:05 PM Comments comments (1)

As many of you will know I have been waiting for my throat to be operated on for some time.  At first I was on the Fast Track List to ensure it was nothing untoward.  Then put on the normal list.  

After a while I have now had the surgery.  It was to remove a large lump and three small lumps which were all attached to my thyroid.  The big lump was attached to my wind pipe and the right hand thyroid gland.  It was also covering the voice box nerve which...

At the beginning of May this year I was lucky to be able to go to Mauritius.  It was my dream holiday since I was just 16.  I had been to the cinema when I first saw it as a trailer.  Absolutely gorgeous.  Some 40 years later I was treated to my dream holiday.  I couldnt believe it.

It is so beautiful, everything I expected.  We were in the north west of the island and stayed in The WestinHotel, Turtle Bay, near Balaclava.  The hotel was to die for and...

Fungal nail infections can affect all or part of the nail including the nail plate, nail bed and root The infection is slow to develop and affected nails may first appear thickened and discoloured, turning white, black, yellow or green.  If left untreated, nails can later become brittle and distorted in shape.  The toenails are more commonly affected than the fingernails.

Fungal nail infections of...

Condition of Nails

Posted by NailsXpress on July 21, 2015 at 2:10 PM Comments comments (0)

We use lots of terms to describe the condition of nails such as brittle and flexible, but its easy for these to be misunderstood, so its time to put the spotlight back on the main properties of natural nails.

HARDNESS - This is the nails resistance to scratching or denting of the surface.  Nail plates that are too hard are more likey to break or split and will also be brittle.  On the other hand, (excuse the pun) nail plates that are too soft are easily scratched, ...

What Ive been up to lately

Posted by NailsXpress on May 19, 2015 at 5:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Well since my last blog, ive been on jury service which was quite interesting. It was when the solar eclipse happened and I found it quite funny walking through Manchester seeing people standing still, staring up into the sky and even the traffic was slower. Though heading into the centre of Manchester each day reminded me why I got out of that rat race many years ago.  But it is much easier by tram rather than the old trains to victoria I used to have to get !

We've decorate...

What's been happening

Posted by NailsXpress on July 6, 2014 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Well I've now been working in Esteem Hair & Beauty for a year and the salon has been getting busier and busier which I'm very pleased about. Not as many gaps in the diary to fill lately.  I'm changing things slightly in the salon, decorating the beauty room and slight alterations in the nail bar area coming up too. 


Gelish is just as popular as acrylics now and of course, as expected, the lovely summery colours are being used up so quickly!  Having to get...
