Giveaway #1: A manicure with The Alpha Nail

Live in Dublin or fancy a trip there?  And do you fancy a manicure with possibly the hottest new mani lady on the block?  We’re got a manicure to give away with none other than the lovely Aoife of The Alpha Nail!

The Alpha Nail is based in 9 Crow Street in Temple Bar every Friday and Saturday.  Despite being open for business only a few months, word-of-mouth has spread and Aoife’s work has graced the talons of Fade Street’s Cici Kavanagh, fashion photog Lili Forberg and former Miss Ireland Emma Waldron (no relation, but I get asked that a LOT *flicks hair*)*.

This isn’t your average manicure.  This is nail art and it’s quite unlike the usual run of the mill one colour polish and dash.  Just look at the pictures.
