Nail art is a major trend that doesn't seem to be going anywhere soon, but while we can admire celebs' designs on the red carpet from afar, it's a whole different ball game trying to find someone in Perth who is willing to branch out from the French manicure and have a bit of fun with nail art. Enter industrious Perth gal Bobbi Jo Divitini, who I had the pleasure of meeting through swing dancing a while ago. With a love for all things beautifying, Bobbi Jo saw a gap in the market for a boutique nail art service catering to lasses wanting to adorn their talons with something that reflects their personality.
Ever since she launched her business Jazzy Nail Art I have been eagerly following Bobbi Jo's Facebook and Instagram feeds to catch a glimpse of what design she will take on next. This gal has serious talent in the nail department, and I was so excited to go into her new residence at Peggy Sue's salon to try out her services.
Though I am not usually one for look at me nails, I thought for this purpose I'd go for something a bit out there that really shows off Bobbi Jo's skills, so I opted for pointy gel nails with hearts on the tips. This look would be so great for a ball or wedding, and I love the Lana del Rey vibe of the points. Through my photos I have shown a bit of the process, from having the gel applied to the nail art on top. And of course I couldn't resist snapping Bobbi Jo's own glittery nails!
I would highly recommend paying Bobbi Jo a visit for nails that command attention, be it for a special event or to add a little glamour to every day life. She's a delight to have a chat with, making the time pass super fast. And not only is Bobbi Jo a nail art whiz but she also offers makeup and hairstyling, what a clever gal indeed! Here's a little Q&A I did with the lady herself to get a feel for what she offers:
- Best celebrity nail inspiration? Zooey Deschanel
- Top trends to try? Fruit for the warmer months, cute cat faces or high-density glitter
- Favourite design performed to date? Totoro-themed nails (so cute!)
- Services offerred? Nail art and manicures plus she is also getting into acrylic and gel nails
- Price point? Manicures start at $25
