Win A Shellac Manicure From Katey At Embellished Nails


If clicked on this link, then you’re obviously obsessed with shellac nail design like myself.ย 

I spend at lease one evening a week scrolling through Instagram, and saving all my fave nail designs so that next time I go to the nail salon I can show them my #nailinspo in hope that I can get something just as good!

Embellished Nails are my new go-to nail salon when it comes to re-creating nail inspo from Insta (and creating/thinking up new tailored designs).

Katey Laurenson has been in the beauty industry for over 13 years, and I can seriously vouch for her when it comes to nail design!

I first had my nails done by the lovely Katey about a year and a half ago, and ever since then she’s been my #1 nail technician. She goes out of her way to ensure we always find a design that suits me and my personal tastes/preferences.

She’s based in Albany on Auckland’s North Shore – so if you’re looking for a talented nail artist in the area, she’s your girl.

Rather than copying a picture I find online, she always seems to create an even better version of it for me… which is why she’s my #1 nail girl.

I thought I’d share my top 10 nail designs from Katey and Embellished Nails in hope that you get some #nailinspo from her. She’s also given me a sneaky giveaway voucher for ya’ll – scroll to the bottom of this post to enter!

1. My current pink sparkly flower nails (naturally)

2. Bright pink with brightly checkered feature nail


3. Classic rose gold with feature nail


4. Ombre with glitter (omgggg love)


5. Pink glitter (what girl doesn’t like this?)


6. Bright pink with holographic flower


7. There are no words for how pretty this one is… omg

As mentioned above, Katey has given me a special treat to giveaway.
