I’m Kerri, the owner operator of Five by Five Mobile Nails, a nail service that’s all about My clients, their nail Health, their style, all in the comfort of the clients own home.

This blog is designed to compliment my Nail Services by bringing you interesting and hopefully entertaining nail related articles.

It is my philosophy that life is too short to have boring nails! To that end I love CND Shellac and Lecentè Create Gel Polish which (with appropriate aftercare) will give you at least 14 days of beautiful polished nails, with no damage to your natural nails. I’m also a bit (Ok more than a bit!) obsessed with glitter, Lecentè is my very favourite brand.

I am fully a qualified nail technician and I like to keep up to date with the latest trends and best practices through training, reading the relevant industry press and membership of several industry groups, forums and associations.

It is these channels of interest which have inspired me to write my blog where I hope to bring you the best of the topics I study and research daily.

In my day to day work I am passionate about bringing my clients fresh looks and styles, and I have a particular interest in nail art including stamping, Lecente Glitters, Foils and Chromes, so expect the blog to feature plenty of references to nail art. As well as profiles of some of my favourite nail artists.

As a mobile nail technician I aim to offer a full salon experience in the comfort of my clients own home. I’m based in the beautiful Village of Langport at the heart of the Somerset Levels.

Thanks for dropping in. X

We have, at the point of writing, been closed for over 100 days and many… Continue reading Beauty Matters

Lockdown Side Hustle

My side lockdown side hustles. What I’ve been up to during lockdown, notebook creation and business coaching.

Please check out my testimonials archive for comments from some of my lovely clients and the gallery page for pictures of my latest nail creations.

So it’s been 5 days since I had my nails done by Kerri Hendry and in that time I’ve been doing housework, running around with my 3 year, had 3 showers and 2 baths. Usually I do my nails in the evening, but by 9am the next day they’re chipping, by 2 days half the polish is gone and by 5 I’ve usually picked the remaining polish off. The practical side of me loves their resilience, the girly side just keeps looking and thinking ‘don’t my nails look so pretty!’d52bca42-4a6a-4606-8233-16c6640ccbaa

Practical and Pretty

Hi Kerri, just wanted to say how impressed I am with my nails……they looked fab for the wedding last Saturday and have survived a week in Cornwall on a family holiday where I’ve been swimming, body boarding, building sand castles, go karting etc and they still look good as new. 😊👍❤️👏💅
