Recently, one of Korea’s most renowned nail designers, Mdm Shigeyama Ai flew in to Singapore to conduct a nail art workshop in conjunction with the launch of AI nail products. She is well-favoured by many notable Korean celebrities, including popular K-pop group, Girls’ Generation. Yes, this lady does the nails for Girls’ Generations! And even though I had missed the nail art workshop by Mdm Ai. I was lucky enough to receive a manicure session with Ms Foo, who is none other than Glamourous Factory’s Head nailist and also the first Graduate student of celebrity nailist Mdm Shigeyama Ai in Singapore. She has more than 12 years experience in the industry and does the nails for award-winning TV actresses such as Priscelia Chan, Ms Ya Hui, Chen Li Ping, Dawn Yeoh, Taiwanese entertainment artiste Annie Chen and so on.
I didn’t have any design in mind and turned to Yee Sin for her recommendations. As it’s summer, she suggested lace or floral designs and being the lace fanatic I am, it was the only natural choice. The BUB AI nail system were used for my entire manicure session. In comparison to other nail polish brands, the BUB AI Nail System offers one of the most comprehensive range of colours and special effect polishes. The colors could be mixed together to produce a brand new shade too. Thus, providing every nail artisan an infinite possibility of creating art on nails like water-colour flower art design, ceramic-marble design, metallic pop-art designs, 3D seashell designs and much more. In addition, each nail artisan is also equipped with a good understanding of proper nail care and manicure hygiene.
Here are my ultra sweet and girly lace designed nails with rhinestone embellishments. I am impressed by how hardy my nails are even after a week of “rough handling”. I’ve been through lots of washing of dishes, some scrubbing and even hammering and screwing of some household items. But guess what? The stones and polish are all still intact.
