All by Sotira at 'Nail Lounge & Spa'
This post is long overdue, and I mean really long! I started getting my nails done by Sotira exactly a year ago, (yes I checked, thanks for the date stamps Instagram).
And I have had many different incarnations of colours and lengths, with extensions and without but I can say now I wouldn't go to anyone else for all things nails related.
Sotira really is amazing at what she does, I started with her getting gel extensions and never had one issue, they lasted really well and I kept them up for a fair few months. And I would like to add this was while working in retail, anyone who has worked in a shop knows what a battering your hands take, and I never had any break, ping off or any chips.
I really love the look of super long claws but we all know they aren't hugely practical. Now I just go with gel colour, and I don't know if I could go back to regular nail polish.
As someone who feels naked without my nails painted it's just one less thing to think about. I mean who doesn't want a perfectly shiny finish with no chipping that lasts for weeks?
The main motivation for this post is that Sotira has now opened her own place in Brighton (on London Road) and I couldn't be happier for her. It's newly refurbished and everything is shiny and new!
A lot of people can do nails, and I'm sure many can do them well but she is just so damn lovely and clearly passionate about what she does. I always have such a laugh and a generally really great experience with her. And if you know me there is nothing I hate more than forced and painful small talk!
I'd like to add that this isn't sponsored and I have always been and will continue to be a paying customer. If someone is great at what they do then more people should know about it! Just don't all rush at once, I still want to be able to get an appointment!
