Tom (@tombrodiebrowne) wears Love/Hate on his nails and one of our Cross decals under his eye. Manicure by Tracy Ann McCafferty

 As you may or may not know, I sometimes tutor at The Academy Of Make-up in Glasgow. The Academy is run by one of my favourite people in the world, Sara Hill, who also happens to be Editor In Chief of Hope St.

“The Academy of Make-up is like no other school, it’s a home for creative minds who love fashion, make-up and hair styling to come together, learn and have fun.”

I’ve taught a couple of nail art classes over the past year but my main gig is Male Manicures, which students learn during the Male Grooming Masterclass section of the Complete Pro Hair & Make-up course. My little portion of the day is always fun, but last week was the best yet! Half of the girls on the course were qualified nail techs so I decided to do things a little differently and focus on some nail/finger/hand art for photoshoots, for boys of course.

We played about with nail decals, temporary tattoos (leftovers from the Abandon Ship Girls event) and body paints. I’ve included a few photos so you can see that our decals actually look really cool on male nails! FYI – The amazing hand/finger art was created by Louise McGuire, cool huh?

Here’s some other photos of boys wearing our decals, if you know anyone who’d like to rock them and take some photos for us then get them to send an email to

Testing out the new product out boys and they're loving it!
