Time Out Melbourne

From crazy patterns, to fruit and cupcakes, let your imagination run wild

Trophy Wife Nail Art creates designs that you wouldn't even imagine turning up on your digits! Choose from a large array of designs, or come up with your own, as your fingernails can become the statement piece of your outfit. The best bit is that you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home if you don't want to, as housecalls can be arranged to create the perfect girls night in.

What are your customers' most common requests?
Lately there is a high demand for geometric shapes and patterns, but I get a lot of requests for fruits! The watermelons in particular have been very popular.

What do you offer that other salons don't?
I offer very custom nail art. I love getting unusual requests for pictures – just yesterday I did a Ken Done-inspired set, and have done things such as hot air balloons and the Air Jordan logo. I can also make decals of whatever you want... maybe your face if you like. Another service that I offer that most salons don't, is house calls. I can come to your house and paint nails for you and your friends while you drink wine and get ready to go out (or stay in).

What do you, as a nail artist, enjoy doing yourself?
I mostly love the unusual requests, I like to be challenged with ideas. It's so exciting and inspiring for me when people are so willing to try something they haven't seen before but think would look amazing. Apart from that my favourite thing to paint (well this week, anyway) are pineapples and bananas.
