Hello Tanya Nails

Home based salon specialising in gel polish and one-of-a-kind nail art. Let's get fancy.

Operating as usual

[11/12/20]   Hello! I’m afraid my books are closed and I’m fully booked for the rest of 2020! Online bookings will open again in January 2021. Thanks for your patience and support! 🥰💕

✨💅🏽LEVEL 2💅🏽✨

Alright my friends, online bookings are back open! I’ve missed you all heaps, though I’ll have to get used to seeing people in my house again!! Here’s some important info and new T&Cs for you all.

❣️Please wait in your car and text me upon arrival so I can prep and sanitise between clients 🧼
❣️You will be required to wear a mask (we can match!) I’ll happily provide you one you can take with you! 😷
❣️I’ll be asking you to wash your hands before sitting down with me- I’ll be wearing gloves as usual 🧤 ❣️No phones allowed during the appointment! Please send me your inspo before you arrive, we can use my sanitised phone to look stuff up! 📵
❣️No surprise guests or pals or kids (sorry) 🙅🏻‍♀️
❣️And lastly, please stay home if you feel unwell- I super serious mean this and will turn you away with love if I can hear a sniffle or a cough. 🤒 ❣️❣️❣️❣️

Just a wee reminder that this is also my home, so we’ll be taking everyone’s safety and all precautions into consideration. This is also why I’ve decided to wait a week and open on the 21st, rather than the 14th. I’ll also continue to limit appointments to three per day for safety. See you all soon! ☺️

Hello! It's been a bit quiet on the old FB page as everything happens on Instagram! Just in case you were wondering how you can support lil ol' me in the midst of our lockdown, vouchers are now available again on my website! Options are pick up only at Mount Eden Auckland, or a customised online voucher. Treat yourself, treat your friends, have something lovely to look forward to on the other side and help support small business! Missing holding hands with you all- see you hopefully at Level 2!

〰️👁〰️ Inspired by the amazing @blancamiroskoudy and @sophieleetattoo, I finally had some time to do a fresh set on myself! Took a few liberties with those faces when painting with my left hand but ultimately I’m stoked with these! ☺️🖤 @ Hello Tanya Nails

Plus, I’ll be doing a pop up there in the future too! Go support small business! ☺️❤️❤️❤️

Want to help Nicetouch NZ with its big move to St. Kevin's Arcade? how about having your kind donation rewarded with A DREAMY MASSAGE in my new space?

I have set up a wee place where you can do just that - Make a donation, get a massage in return. You rub my back, I'll rub yours ;) Donate here!


Had the absolute pleasure of designing some awesome nails for MiNDFOOD magazine's 10th birthday issue! Shot by James Black, assisted by Richard Symons! These were so much fun to do!

One of the best things about this cool job is the sheer number of different styles I get asked to do! Variety is the spiciest, and it’s my favourite! ☺️💅🏽✨ Thanks to everyone for supporting me, coming by and always bringing awesome ideas! 😘❤️

Go Native

Had a little chat to my friends over at Go Native about using their gorgeous products to make the cuticle oil I use in salon and have for sale! Thanks friends! ^_^

"There's an incredible freedom and feeling of accomplishment in making my own products."

- We talked to hair, make-up and nail artist Hello Tanya Nails about her business, and the precisely blended cuticle oil she's developed using Go Native ingredients.

If you're a "Go Native Maker" who'd like to be featured, don't hesitate to get in touch! http://bit.ly/2Ghle7g

Oooh yeah, we’ve got a fun bunch today! Here’s a lil recap of what I’ve been up to so far this year! From leaves to cellophane nails, all the glitter and Matisse! 💅🏽✨ Bookings are open, come get your nails did! ☺️🌸

Karin Yamasaki

The lovely Karin Yamasaki interviewed me for Passion! Yep, here I am again going on about how much I love what I do, how I ended up doing nails (ahem and that nails are genderless tyvm), falling in love with doing make up, how awesome it is working from home

Karin Yamasaki interviews Tanya Barlow, a freelance hair, make up and nail artist who works from her home salon called Hello Tanya Nails.

Thanks so much for the love, @Re:!

"I get to paint tiny things and make people happy and that's awesome" - Hello Tanya Nails has been creating tiny works of art on fingernails from her home studio since 2012. From Bill Murray to butts, if you can think it, she can paint it 💅🍑

Hello! I just wanted to say a little thank you to everyone who I’ve had the pleasure of holding hands and meeting with this year- it’s been a big one! Full of challenges, old favourites, new and returning clients! I appreciate every single one of you- without you and your support, I wouldn’t be here! Thank you! ☺️😘❤️

And with that, the salon is now officially closed for the holidays! Heading back home to Hong Kong a bit early this year, I’ll be back and open again from the 17th of Jan- bookings for 2018 are already open if you wanna get in there! ✨

And for being so wonderful, here’s a bumper crop of nail art! Enjoy my friends! ☺️💅🏽✨

Much love,
Tanya xoxo
