Scratch Stars Finalist

Scratch Stars FinalistA year ago when the Scratch Stars finalists for the best Gel Polish Stylist in the UK 2013 were announced, I looked on with great admiration knowing that the 5 finalists who were selected, were nominated as 5 of the best in the UK. I looked at the pictures online and in my Scratch Magazine in awe of what an amazing Scratch Stars Awards it had been and had numerous daydreams imagining how that must feel, quietly hoping that one day, my name would appear as one of those 5.

Well, this year I bit the bullet and nervously entered. When announcement day deadline came, I was with a dear client of mine Sophie, and a fellow tech Deborah Morgan of Phoenix 42. We checked online with trepidation to see if by any chance we recognised any of the nail techs who were finalists. Cheers rang out in Divine By Design Nail Boutique, Chester, as there in black and white, it read under Gel Polish Stylist Of The Year Finalists “Natasha Lee, Divine By Design Beauty”!

I was so happy and humbled to be placed with some amazing gel polish technicians! Competition day is looming in only a few weeks, and I’m going to savour every moment of the experience and do my best to produce my best work and nail art EVER! I’m also looking forward to the Scratch Stars Awards 2014 in London, I’ve never before met people who party like nail people party! Thanks for all the support I’ve received internationally that has helped to get me this far. Every Facebook like/ message, tweet, Instagram hashtag, Pinterest comment and YouTube likes/subscriber brings a grateful smile to my face. Big hugs

I Dreamed a Dream

Best Nail Salon AwardI’d always had a dream from my teenage years to have perfect nails and to own the most exquisite and best nail salon! Life however took me in different directions and during a brief period as a train driver, I realised I had pretty much left that dream behind yet my love of all things nails, acrylics, polish, glitter and bling still lived on!

A number of years on, I decided to bite the bullet and booked on my first course acrylic nail (L&P) course with CND/Creative. A couple of crazy years and numerous CND courses passed by, and after being awarded the best CND Shellac Power Polisher in the UK in 2013, I realised it was time to find a place to call nail home.

That was when Divine By Design Nail Boutique was born. I’d always envisioned the perfect home for my first salon would be Chester, Cheshire, with it’s beautiful period architecture and great links to North Wales, Cheshire, Merseyside and the North West and in November 2013 DBD opened it’s doors with a wonderful, busy open day.

Is it the Best Nail Salon in Chester? Well I will leave that for you to book in and decide, but I will guarantee you will love the beautiful surroundings and leave with absolute perfect custom nails that will get you noticed and feeling amazing! xDBDx
