It has been a busy couple of weeks, but one of the highlights was my mini road trip around the Cornish and Devonshire Colleges. Ez Flow Nail Systems new distributor Anna Curtis invited me along on round robin of some of the best colleges in the South West.

With only 2 hours at each venue, we were able to show these new technicians some amazing products and fantastic un-seen techniques. We visited Truo college, and then zoomed off to St Austel's with only 10 mins to spare, after a quick Big Mac in the car we hiked up the motorway to Plymouth city college.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the College tutors for inviting us and making us feel so very welcome.
The main comments from all the students was 'how new' design and colour is, or 'seeing something fresh and exciting' where before the south west has been forgotten. Out on the fringes of the nail industry our new generation tech does not realize the potential of there own chosen career, and for me it was exciting to talk to them and show them what can be achieved.




Of all the things I do, demoing in different lands, developing workshops to get the best out of you and even writing on the blog and in the magazines, visiting the colleges is the most rewarding, because I know if one one of those many many women are inspired enough they can go on to make some fantastic waves of change in the future.
If you would like more infomation about Ez Flow in the South then plese contact Anna on; nifty-nails@hotmail.com, or telephone her on 07983025157.

Preview of new design DVD


Here it is a sneaky peak of my New DVD. Jam packed full of both acrylic and Gel design steps, this DVD will be released in March 2009.

But for you I wanted to show a little something, because I just can't wait. The amazing front cover on Scratch this month - Dangerous Liaisons, a gel design utilizing the now all too popular stilletto is just one of the exciting nails featured.

If you can't wait to find out how to create this look you can always download the step by steps on my download page at http://www.sambiddle.co.uk/.

I love receiving emails from talented techs in far flung places like Cape Town and New Zealand, my inbox is full of questions and examples of work from Japan and New Dehli.
