Operating as usual


This lovely customer ordered two extra accent nails so she could wear hearts when she felt like hearts, and leopard print other times. Such a creative use of the individual nails I offer ❤️🐆


Did you know that you can get polishes that change colour with the temperature?? I am OBSESSED with these polishes! This one is pink when it's cold and yellow when hot. I have 4 colour changing polishes at this stage, but plan to get more! 😍😍😍


Playing around with diamantes. Who else loves the iridescent colouring? Silver and clear are nice, but these are my fave😍😍😍


Throwback to these cuties. I am a firm believer that nails don't need to be long to be gorgeous 😍😍😍🌷


Let the fighting begin... Is this brown or purple? 👍 for brown, ❤️ for purple


Out of all the nail art I offer, marble is still the most popular by far! Which is your fave? ❤️


This peachy colour was custom mixed for this set. I can make almost any colour you like from what I have in my collection, so don't be afraid to ask!


Classic french tip will never go out of style ❤️


I LOVE when you guys send me pictures or ideas to recreate for you 😍


Love love love this butterfly set from last week- a custom request that I'll definitely be adding to the shop! 😍🦋


How chic is this leopard print set? 🖤


Some nails are just a bit fruity 🍉😍😋


Anyone else rather be watching the sunset from under a palm tree right now? 🌴🌅


** Product highlight **
Did you know that I sell nail files? I currently have 3 options- Glass files, Glitter files, and Surmanti Naturale files. These are all made of long lasting, high quality materials, and are perfect to use on your natural nails! I personally like to shorten my nails with the Surmanti Naturale file before applying press-ons so that they fit better, and if you look at the underside of the nails they still look great!
Message me if you would like to order some (and remember combined postage is available x) ❤️


Client photos are the best! Watch this space, I'll be running a nail selfie competition next week 👀👀💅


** Update **
My materials have arrived and I am now taking orders again 😊 Thanks for your patience- I can't wait to get back to making beautiful nails for you all ❤️💜

Also, does anyone else agree this should be called dandelion rather than mustard?? 🌻


Do you call this marble or gemstone? Either way, this is my new favourite look 😍


I LOVE when you guys send me nailfies 😍 Keep 'em coming xx


I will always have a soft spot for mermaid nails 🧜‍♀️


Which are your favourite stars? 🌟✨😍

[05/08/20]   ** Press-on nails announcement **
I won't be taking any new orders this week because I have run out of stock! You guys are awesome, I'm so overwhelmed by how popular these nails have been. Thank you so much for your support! I will update you here as soon as my new stock arrives and I can start taking orders again 😊

- All orders that have been paid for will still be filled ❤️


Throwback to when I had an actual client here... Miss you all! Can't wait to be able to see you all again Xx


Here are some of the pressons I've made over the past few days. I am SO excited that they are so popular at the moment! I love making pretty things to brighten your lockdown 😍


Press-ons are shipping from tomorrow! The wait for a fresh set of salon nails is over 😍

If you're feeling adventurous, try one of my mystery sets. You tell me a few key preferences, and I create a surprise set for you! Just like getting a present ❤️

But if you want to choose your own specific design, that's fine too! Send me a message and let's see what we can create x


Counting down to Tuesday... 4 more sleeps!


As you are probably all aware by now, we are going back down to alert level three- which means I can officially post my press-ons as of next Tuesday (28/4) ❤️
Anyone else super excited to get their online shop on?? 😍👌


I have had these press-ons on since Saturday afternoon and they still look amaze 😍 I used the adhesive tabs, not glue, and they have lasted super well! The thumb came off on the first day, but I realised the adhesive tab actually hadn't covered my whole thumb. I reapplied it with two tabs, covering the whole width of my thumbnail, and it hasn't moved since 👍
The tabs are estimated to last 24-72hrs, but I reckon if you look after them they can last way longer! ❤️


Nail salons cannot open during Alert Level 3, but that doesn't mean that you have to miss out on perfect nails! I create custom press-on nails that can be reused many times if looked after. Choose from a range of designs or send me an inspo pic and see what I can create for you! Message me or check out the "shop" tab on my page for more info ❤️


These were the nails I did for a bridal party a few weeks ago... Back before weddings were illegal 🚫😮🥰


More practice, but with inks this time 😍


The Gospel In Four Minutes

Today is Resurrection Sunday- there is a meaning behind today that goes far beyond bunnies and chocolate. I do what I do here at Glitter and Grace because I believe every person is made in the perfect image of God and is worth getting to know, and worth being made to feel special and beautiful.
You were made to be fully known and fully loved by God, and what Jesus did c2000 years ago made a way for that to happen.
If you have just 4 minutes, watch the video below which explains it in a bit more detail.
I pray that today you all know that there is a reason you are here, and that you are treasured by someone who would die to know you ❤️

From the G to the L, this video explains the gospel in four minutes. Amazing word's put in a simple and easy to understand format. Email, Post and tell the W...


What have you all been doing to keep busy during isolation? I've been practising nail designs and brushing up (haha) on my art 🎨❤️


The Amy Boiss Show


It was CURLY & BENT😳


Something to consider ❤️

[03/17/20]   UPDATE: Glitter and Grace is now closed and will remain so for the duration of alert level 4.

In light of recent events, I ask that any clients who have any cold or flu symptoms please rebook your appointment for a later date, and of course, if you have recently travelled then self-isolate as per the Government's instructions. Please also refrain from bringing friends or children to your appointments.
In order to protect my clients and my family, I have decided to put a new policy in place for the time being. If you come to your appointment with any cold or flu symptoms, or when you are supposed to be in self-isolation, you will be sent home immediately and charged for your appointment in full.
While I don't think we should be buying 20,000 toilet paper rolls out of panic, I do believe it is everybody's responsibility to make sure the most vulnerable of our community are protected, and that means following the Government's guidance and keeping away from people if you are sick.
Thank you all for your cooperation ❤️

My Story

Hi there! My name is April, and I’m the one behind all the pretty nail pictures :) I became a qualified nail technician in 2016, and am working part time from my home in Palmerston North. When I’m not doing nails I’m either studying towards my bachelors degree (linguistics- not even close to nails!), hanging out with my gorgeous bunnies (Meghan and Harry lol) or eating salt and vinegar chips and leaving none for my husband.
As cheesy as it sounds, my favourite part of doing nails is seeing how happy it makes my wonderful clients. I love being able to give people that “look at my pretty nails!” feeling.

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there. You are amazing ❤❤❤❤
Along with my new pricelist, I am offering some new services from June onwards. One of them is the long awaited pedicure...
