There's nothing better than a bit of salon-style pampering, but if you feel like a change from your 'run-of-the-mill' manicure, then Trophy Wife Nail Art might tickle your fancy.
Trophy Wife is Melbourne-based Chelsea Bagan, a self described 'freelance nail artist'. Bagan doesn't just paint, shape and polish; she creates beautiful and intricate designs on the smallest of surfaces. From colourful French tips to intricate floral designs, cupcakes, tuxedos and all-seeing eyes, Bagan can adorn your nails with whatever your heart desires.
Trophy Wife recently had a booked-out three-week residency at Alice Euphemia, to celebrate the Melbourne boutique's 'sweet sixteenth' birthday. With her cheerful and friendly manner, Bagan skilfully improvised a lovely musical treatment for my nails, and my friend Kate chose the stylish geometric design.
But don't worry if you missed Trophy Wife's residency, you can still have your nails artistically painted. Bagan works out of a Collingwood studio and bookings are by appointment only (see her website, below). Trophy Wife is also available for group bookings and house calls for three or more people, perfect for a special birthday or hens night fun. Bagan is indeed one talented lady, so the next time you're looking to spoil yourself or your friends, a spot of nail art might just be the answer.
