How many times have you looked down at your nails when you’re at home or in the office only to wish you had your own in-house manicurist? Whilst unpainted nails are, I admit, #firstworldproblems, it can sometimes be hard to schedule in nail appointments when you are juggling the stresses and struggles of everyday life and work commitments. “If only I could use an app to have a manicurist come to me at a time and place that’s totally convenient” I hear you say. WELL WHAT DO YOU KNOW…there is. Step forward, Blow Ltd.
Hailed as Uber for beauty – by no one except me, probably – it’s a one-stop app for nails, blow drys, makeup, massages, lashes and even yoga. Hop onto the app and you can select your service and then choose a time, date and location that suits you. It’s super easy to do and because there are so many beauty professionals working for them, there’s always loads of times available – and they work from 7 am to late too.
I was really lucky to be offered the chance to try out a complimentary gel manicure, thanks to my friends at Carousel PR. I wanted to get my nails done the day before I flew to Ibiza but because I had lots on that day I was really limited with time I had available. Luckily, because Blow Ltd’s beauty experts start work so early, I was able to snag a 7.30 am spot which was perfect for me as I get up really early to go to the gym anyway.
As expected, the girl that arrived at my front door was so lovely and professional. She works in a salon full time, so she takes the early morning and evening slots and is more than skilled in her area of expertise because this is what she does day in, day out. The only thing Blow need to do yours nail at home and work is a single socket to plug the lamp into so you really can have them done wherever is convenient for you. I plumped for the kitchen, and after my professional had set up, she got to work preparing my nails.
Just like in a salon, Blow Ltd have tons of nail colours with them for you to choose from. Even though it was September and summer was technically over, I wanted something bright for Ibiza so chose an amazing neon coral colour – after two coats it was super bright and would really show off my holiday tan.
I was really impressed with the professionalism and the speed of Blow Ltd. In no time at all, my gel nails were finished and the appointment had flown by so quickly thanks to the chatty and friendly manicurist.
What about the nails? Well, I was really impressed with them too. They lasted me through Ibiza and then some without any chips or peeling and I finally removed them a few weeks later. Thanks so much Blow Ltd.
