You can even clean the oven and not spoil them
18 year old looked at my nails and decided that I definitely needed to go with her to have a manicure before Christmas. She very kindly insisted on paying for me and would not take no for an answer.

"But there is no point" I said. "They will get ruined when making mince pies".

"They will be fine". She said.

"And I need to clean the bathrooms. The chemicals will damage them". "No, they won't", she persisted. "It's my treat. Come with me".

And so I went along to Nikita Mundy with 18 year old. I was still not convinced that my nails would last beyond Christmas Eve, but it is always lovely to be pampered.

Nikita uses Geleration by Jessica Cosmetics. I have come across this system before and know that Shellac and Calgel offer a similar product.

It is a gel overlay system and has the astonishing benefit it seems of being virtually indestructible, of strengthening rather than weakening your nails and of looking smoother than any varnish I personally have ever used.

Nikita did our nails. They looked stunning and it was just lovely to sit there drinking tea, chatting and relaxing. We had a great time. Thank you 18 Year Old.

"And tell me" I said, "You are sure that if I clean the house, the chemicals won't destroy the gel"? (Because I love cleaning of course). "No" she replied. "Absolutely not. And if they do get chipped slightly, come back and I'll fix it for you. They should last three weeks."

Amazing I thought. For three weeks I should have nails that look like Gabby's from Desperate Housewives. Eat your heart out Eva Longoria. Sally Lomax has nice nails now too.

It's day two so far and all is looking good.

Thank you Nikita and thank you 18 Year Old for the treat.
