Mother and Daughter Nails

Showcasing the nails done during the Ansemble promotion.

Mabel and Maria were a nice mother and daughter pair who came for manicures after buying bags from Ansemble.

They both gave me a free rein with the designs on their nails. I asked them a few questions about their work environment and came up these!

Maria is an auditor, who wears dark coloured outfits most of the time. She needed something suitable for work but would like a little art.


Maria’s nails done using Essie’s Cocktail Bling as the base and No More Film on the french. Big and small alternating white dots gives the manicure a cute twist.

Mabel is a doctor who counts knitting and paints as her hobbies. She showed me pictures of her watercolour paintings on her phone, they were lovely! Had fun chatting with her. She preferred nude based and toned down designs due to her nature of work.


Mabel’s nails were done using AngelPro gelly. No. 93 is a sheer silver glitter used as the base, followed by No. 83 on the tips. The white zebra stripes were painted on with No. 47, an opaque white.

Many apologies to Maria who was waiting for her mom. Please drop by again when you get back from your trip.

It was nice chatting with Mabel too as we had some work experience, hope to see her around in school.

    Love those nails – they’re holding up so very well ! Pity I couldn’t recommend my friends to the artist. The ccfl/LED lamp is much better than the ones I’m used to at my regular manicurist – much faster and cooler. Thanks Ann!

      Hi Mabel. Thank you for your nice comment. Glad you loved the nails. I’m sorry that I do not do service on a regular basis but Ansemble is having the manicure promotion till 12 May 2013.Your friends can drop by to support local designers and businesses in Haji Lane and have free manicures at the same time 🙂
