Lil’ note to my people out there in my sphere, if I do your nails or did your nails, or if you want your nails did, or if you like/don’t like my nails that I do.... ❤️
Please don’t be offended if I don’t reply to *every single* message or email or DM or text or phone call. Please don’t be offended if I can’t book you in last minute or for a week’s time, every time. Please don’t be offended if I miss an email or forget to get back to you. It’s not personal, it’s just hectic on a screen and I’m doing my personal life thing as well as doing the actual nail thing. 💅🏻💅🏼💅🏽💅🏾💅🏿 There are FAQ’s answered on my website & also my online diary to book so you can look up/book/change/cancel appointments with ease. I love this app for sharing but it’s not how I want to make bookings, it’s too distracting.
So, let’s get on with Friyay!!! Love you all 🦋 #letsgetclear #transparent #boundarysetting

How To Remove CND Shellac At Home

Morning all! It's Friyay!! I've been getting a lot of messages about how to remove Shellac at home so here's the video from my website (Lots of frequently asked questions are also answered in my Studio Blog) I'd always recommend booking in with a professional to have any gels or acrylics removed but if you 100% know that a Shellac base coat, colour coat and top coat was used throughout the treatment.... then this is how to do it! Other brands (Such as my other love, The GelBottle Inc) need a file to remove the top coat first, plus an extra 10 minutes in nail wraps and some care with a cuticle tool afterwards. Have a good weekend! Rachel x

This tutorial is about how to remove CND Shellac at home. For best results, always visit a professional. Here's how to book with me in my Berlin based studio...

Audrey, Frida & Diana... all in one 💅🏻💅🏻💅🏻 Loving the tye dye swirlys at the moment 👌🏻 #thegelbottleinc #vegannails #animalcrueltyfree #lazygirlnailart

This is Otis 😊 No amount of reading or watching or listening or talking could prepare for this cute leggy bundle of chaos! He’s my new shadow in the studio. We’re in serious city training mode atm so I’ve made a few adjustments to my studio diary for the time being to accommodate. Figuring out my life/work balance on the go 💛 #letsdothis #brb #cutechaos


Striding into Hump Day like...

Who would get these feet nails?? 😱🦶

Still accepting period product donations until end June! Packaged/wrapped excess products at home or especially purchased to donate.... liners, pads, tampons, cups... it’s all needed & appreciated ✔️❣️Help me put together care packages for women’s shelters in Berlin! @theredboxprojectuk are a source of inspiration for this 🤓 Period poverty is not cool. Periods are expensive. Let’s help each other get through them without shame and embarrassment over something completely natural and quite useful! (I read Code Read by @sassylisalister in ‘17 and it changed my life) Other period related accounts I follow are @freeperiods & @periodmovement ❤️ #freeperiods #MHD2019 #codered #kindnessiskey

Berlin heads 🔥💅🏻 I’ve made some changes to my opening times and days 📒 Book in ahead of time & bag a spot for those rebalances, refreshes & removals ⏳⏰🗓 If a day or time isn’t coming up on my online diary (see website) when trying to book, it’s because it’s already taken ☯️ #dontsleep #peaceloveandnails #nailcrewberlin

Happy Hump Day 😊👌🏻 #tgbmanicure #animalcrueltyfree #vegannails #thegelbottle #berlinnails

Look! Nails! ✨ In other news, I’ll be collecting period product donations for women’s shelters in Berlin from now till end of June ☀️ Feel free to purchase some especially to donate or bring any excess, packaged products you have laying around to the studio 💅🏻 (if you’re a silicone cup convert then there must be some stashed & forgotten in a cupboard somewhere! 🔍📦🧐) ORRR 50% profits from my limited Tee design will be going to women’s shelters also 💚 Links in bio to bag one of those! More info in my highlights💡❣️😎 #periodpovertyawareness #freeperiods #thegelbottleinc #effynails

Here’s my new design, from zine to tee! #mustbethepheromones 🍦 I’m printing with #everpress again as they only make the number of Tee’s that are ordered so extras aren’t sitting about, collecting dust ✔️ Long or short sleeve in unisex, organic cotton 💚 Raising money for women’s shelters & providing period product care-packages. These moon/selina/organicups aren’t cheap but they’re pretty good for the planet 🌍 Links in bio for the next 17 days 😎 #freeperiods #multihyphenate #sidehustle #winwinwin

I love these colour gels so much! I found it really hard to do ombré nails before but with these badgals there’s no stopping me 💅🏻 Gradually adding to my gel selections from Shellac to The Gel Bottle. I still love Shellac. But these ones are 🔝🍌 #vegannails #animalcrueltyfree #goinggreen

@lauracallaghanillustration inspiration for today! 💅🏻😊 Had just over an hour to remove the last #TGB mani, Do a quick layer of #biab gel & then decorate 🧁 Lauras illustrations are so detailed it’s such a lovely source of inspiration to paint nails from 🥰 #newcolours #comingthru #speedpainting #thegelbottleinc @ Neukölln, Berlin, Germany

Acrylic rebalance with some detail nail art using @the_gelbottle_inc colours 💜 As seen by @_thenailgenie @ @maadnails 💅🏻 #raceagainsttime #springcollection #vegancolour #berlinnails

Trying out a little ombré with @the_gelbottle_inc #biab17 & #madam 💅🏻✨Just a heads up✨ I’m booked up for the next 3 weeks so if you are in need of a rebalance or freshen up or pedi or mani or cup of tea then use my online diary to book in advance 😎 It’s fresh & simple to use & you are the one in control 👌🏻 Yes yes 🥳 It’s always worth a check online to see if any last minute spots become available too (for the spontaneous ones out there) 🔎 Thank you everyone already using my online diary! I love it. 🥰 PS. These are gel overlays on natural nails. Overlays give the natural nails a stronger layer, under the colour, to prevent breakages. #nailsinberlin #thegelbottleinc

After 10 minutes of trying to take a decent photo that includes the thumb nail, failing and then giving up... @__wolfsister & I was on our way out of the door before the perfect pose appeared before us ✨💅🏻😎🌿☯️ #sunglasses #berlinnails #nailartberlin #magic #thegelbottleberlin #thegelbottleinc

A fresh set of jelly extensions using @the_gelbottle_inc rainbow colours 🌈 A la @nail_swag @fresh.claws 🥰 Remember my client who’s allergic to nuts so can’t use my cuticle oil? This is her 💅🏻 But if you’re not allergic to nuts... THEN YOU CAN USE CUTICLE OIL AND PREVENT DRY SKIN/NAILS ✨ #jellynails #nailrainbow #clearnails

Growing longer, natural nails with @the_gelbottle_inc in Teddy, June & Mint 💅🏽 In another 3 weeks, this gel will be ready to remove with nail wraps before a fresh set is applied 😊 When using my online diary, don’t worry about not knowing what design you want 🔎 We can talk about that when you’re here 👌🏻 As long as you click “Add Nail Art” in Simple, Simple Plus or Detailed, it will give me some extra time & I’ll have some idea of what to expect 🤓 #howtobook #thegelbottle #naturalnails #vegannails #berlinvegan #welovespring

Getting carried away in my story’s & since I’ve been asking people to film my filing, who knows when I’ll stop. 🤷🏻‍♀️💅🏽 Here are B’s transformed natural nails after a few weeks of home grown goodness & @the_gelbottle_inc #biab overlays 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 #nailsgrow #overlays #helpinghand #lima #berlinnails

Hello Nail Crew 💜 I spent last week building a new online booking system & I’m really proud of it! It’s a no faff, get sh*t dun & get on with your day kind of diary. Let me know how you’re getting on with it! The only thing is- it doesn’t list my 303 star reviews (wwhhaaaaat! ✨✨✨) so I have to start again using Google’s rating system. If you have a spare minute & you’ve had your nails done by me in the past, I would love love LOVE it if you could click a star (or 5) & if you’re feeling extra then leave a few words too. Reviews help small businesses to be seen and I am one of those 🧐🤩🥳 I’ll give you 10% off your next booking as a thank you 🙏🏽THANK YOOOOOOU 💌 #newthings #spring #acuityscheduling #5star #feelingextra

Here’s a big fat THANK YOU to every single last one of you reading this that GETS IT 🥳❤️💅🏽🙌🏽 “It” being the way I run my biz sh*t, setting business/personal boundaries, trying to stick them but pissing a few people off along the way and keeping all (or 4/5) of the other plates spinning?! Thank you thank you thank you thank you for getting it! 💜 My names Rachel and I have a 24h cancellation policy. Yes, it’s to do with time & money, not rainbows & butterfly’s. Let’s all be kind to each other. Don’t be a dick 💜 #thankyou #fullmoon #day28 #tryandguesswhathappened

5 days to order your #ILY Tee! This is the newest of the crew... long sleeve in white (if you watch my story’s you’d have already seen me banging on about this one 😎) Berlin heads, you can order via me to save on postage & packaging 👌🏽 If you’re else where, you can order via LDN based company Everpress at www.everpress.com/ilytee for white or www.everpress.com/ily2tee for black 💜 All profits are going to The Ocean Cleanup for this collection before another cause is in focus with next design 🎬❤️🥳 #planeteffy #charitees #everpress #lessplastic @ Berlin


ILY apparel | Everpress

We've raised €235 so far with the ILY TEE's! All while supporting small, independent businesses along the way. Pretty cool. It would be cooler to raise even more for The Ocean Cleanup & wear one of these TEE's on the reg.

It's time for the 3rd & FINAL drop of these, from now till 22nd March... 10 days :) Then a different cause will be in the spotlight.

Freshest design is the long sleeve in WHITE! Short sleeve also found here too... https://everpress.com/ilytee

Also in BLACK! Long & short sleeve. I know, I know, I'm spoiling you

everpress.com Last run for the ILY collection by Effy Nails, Berlin based nail tech & artist. All profits going to The Ocean Cleanup Project. These limited edition ILY garments are only available here.

These are freshly did gel overlays using The GelBottle Inc #biab gel & some nail art for an 80’s party 🤓 Second pic is 3-4 weeks later before I allllmost forgot to take a pic 💅🏽 I’d recommend booking a rebalance/freshen up for 2-3 weeks after but if you don’t mind the regrowth or any repairs that might need fixing then +3 weeks will be fine ✔️ I didn’t use cuticle oil to finish on this set as my client has a nut allergy so I didn’t want to kill her (Although I almost did once. She’s ok 💁🏻‍♀️) #gelnails #berlinnails #tgb #nailtips #manitime @ Berlin, Germany
