OBUS CLOTHING POP UP STORES - FIRST STOP NORTHCOTE
The weekend was the first in a series of pop up salons being held at Obus Clothing. Obus are an amazing Melbourne designed and made fashion label with stores in Northcote, Fitzroy, QV and Armadale. When Obus asked us to run our pop up salon from their four stores we were beyond excited!! We got working on a few ‘Obus Inspired’ nails and using their environmentally friendly nail paints we came up with a few designs that worked perfectly in their store. What do you think??
Whilst we were at Obus we had a few very special visitors. One person we were excited to meet was Emily Green. We fell in love with her cute and colourful style way back when (you know who she is … that chick that does those adorable colourful necklaces pictured below) and we loved painting her some zig zag nails….
Our next Obus pop up salon is this weekend… Friday 17 May & Saturday 18 May at Obus Fitzroy in Gertrude St. Be sure to get yourself some Obus inspired nails … and PS if you get your nails did, you get 10% off Obus purchases store wide xoxox
Until then xo
MONDAY 6 MAY 2013
Incase you missed it, in April I Scream Nails teamed up with the How Two Live girls for what we like to call “Nailpril”! In the course of a week we painted Jess and Stef’s nails every day. It was awesome, we got to know the girls and tried our hand at putting some cute, crazy and colourful designs on their fingernails :) Here is a taste:
Anyhoo, we ran a competition on Instagram asking all you die hard nail art fans to upload pics of your own nail art onto instagram and tag #nailpril. The winner had their nail art featured on the How Two Live blog (www.howtwolive.com) and won a nail art party for them and 3 friends. We had an overwhelming response and it was so so so so hard to choose a winner but in the end we couldn’t go past these Sesame Street themed nails done by Jade…. amaze!
We were so excited to get over to Jade’s for her nail art party for 4 that ended up being a nail art party for 8… and, it was Jade’s birthday so it was awesome all around! YAY! Here are some of the nails that Jade and her friends had done on the day.
So much colour!
Lots more going on this weekend with our Obus Clothing Pop Up Salons starting… YAY! So dam excited to get our hands on the Obus Nail Paints…. eeeeeeee! Oh, and we have heaps of new designs to show you all!
See you on the weekend!
Love Celia xo

The weekend saw us hanging out with the crew at Dakota 501 in Chapel St. Talk about a massive store… huge and packed with awesome clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery and the list goes on. One lucky Instagram follower won the Dakota 501 competition and scored herself some free I Scream Nails and a Karen Walker ring…. YAY!! Hoping they will have us back sometime soon… fingers crossed! We did a total of approx 30 nails in 2 days! Phew… sleep time for us x
MONDAY 15 APRIL 2013
BYS COSMETICS EVENT
Crazy busy at I Scream Nails but we wouldn’t have it any other way! Wednesday we did a fantastic event for BYS Cosmetics. They invited all of their favorite bloggers to Madame Brussels for some drinks and to try out some of their latest cosmetics range. This included Caviar and Glitter nails… that’s where we come in. Had a ball getting to know everyone and giving them some sweet nails… a tip for the caviar nails, give them a spray of hair spray when they are finished, this will give them a longer life :)
THE PEOPLES MARKET - COLLINGWOOD
If we could be at the People’s Market every weekend forever then we would! Awesome place, yummy food, good drinks, people were awesome and tones of nails… what more could we ask for. When TIMEOUT MELBOURNE asked us along to the People Market we were absolutely stoked!! We got to deck out our shipping container however the hell we wanted, so of course we decided on ice creams made from cardboard and baloons. We also found some very sweet glasses close by which we had to paint nail art on!
MONDAY 8 APRIL 2013
FIRST STOP…..GRACE BOUTIQUE - TOORAK
WOW! Our weekend was beyond crazy and we loved every minute of it. We did our very first pop up salon at Grace Boutique in Malvern Rd, Toorak. Firstly the girls at Grace are total babes! It was amazing and man we were so busy that we were all booked out! We saw some amazing ladies pop their heads in to visit us, and we pimped their nails - oh did we ever!! Check out some of our favorites from the weekend!
MYER - HIGHPOINT
It”s no secret that we totally dig Miss Shop Cosmetics. What’s not to love about them, their colours are amazing and perfecto for nail art :) We are doing a few special pop ups for Myer Miss Shop over the next few weeks, and to kick it off we popped up at Myer Highpoint - so much colour and fun xo

Lupa Garage Sale Preview Night
If you haven’t noticed, I Scream Nails loves Lupa Clothing …. lots and lots and lots! The chicks that run the show at Lupa are amazing and the clothing in that place is divine. Everytime we pop up there the I Scream Nails girls always leave with many additions to our wardrobes.
Every now and then they decide to clean out and make way for the new seasons clothing…. this calls for a massive garage sale. Davina at Lupa decided she was going to shout all her lovely customers some I Scream Nails at the garage sale preview night, and, as per usual we were run off our feet and finished the night covered in nail polish!
Some happy snaps :)
MONDAY 18 MARCH 2013
It’s a wrap! WOW what a sweet 3 weeks working out of the Myer Bourke Street Melbourne windows. We lost count of all the nails and fantastic people we met. We all had an absolute blast! Favorite part of the 3 weeks was witnessing a really drunk guy do a bum press against the window whilst we were in it painting nails.. rrrrrrright!
Anyway, lots more exciting adventures coming up in the next few months for the I Scream Nails girls so stay tuned xo
THURSDAY 7 MARCH 2013
We were so excited to be involved in the launch of the new website for How Two Live last night. It was a jam packed event at Little Cupcakes in Degraves St with plenty of cider, champagne and cupcakes. We did lots of nails and everyone had a ball. Looking forward to catching up with the How Two Live girls again really soon for an exciting collaboration xo
MONDAY 4 MARCH 2013
Phew! What a week!! It’s been so crazy amazing. Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday we were in the Myer Bourke Street Windows…. what more is there to say. It feels like Christmas but it’s not. The lovely folks at Miss Shop Myer are giving you the Bourke St windows for 20 minutes to get your nail art on!! All you have to do is spend $20 on Miss Shop Cosmetics…… pretty sweet deal we think! And, the good news is that Miss Shop nail polish is awesome, the colours and the quality, all for under $8 a bottle! We only have 2 weekends left so make sure you don’t miss out on the fun :)
MONDAY 25 FEBRUARY 2013
Last week we were a part of Confetti, Cake and Bubbles which was hosted by 2nd Avenue Events, showcasing all that is awesome, cool and different in the way of organising events surrounding weddings, hens days and milestone birthdays. We had a ball chatting to all the lovely people that came through. It was held in a private room upstairs at the Espy and I must say, that pub has not lost it - still as awesome as ever.
Here are some picks from the night!
This week we are busy workshoping and preparing for our debut in the Myer Bourke Street windows… to say we are excited is an understatement. Hope to see you all there xo

FRIDAY 22 FEBRUARY 2013
Crrrrrrrrrrrrazy few weeks! Last weekend saw us pop up at Lady Petrova on Friday, Alice McCall on Saturday and the Humungo Garage Sale on Sunday wooooooooo! Exhausting but awesome.
Alice McCall Chapel St asked us to try our hand at designing some special nails to celebrate the arrival of ‘drop’ one of their new Autumn / Winter Collection, The Imaginarium of Kitty Leroy… the collection was divine and our new nail designs were a hit!
The Humungo Garage Sale was that… HUMUNGO! not to mention awesome fun. Only the coolest of hip chicks were there setting up stalls…. all led by Kathry Baulch (House of Baulch). It may have been 35 degrees but people were still out enjoying the sunshine, doing a spot of shopping and lapping up the free nail art that was on offer from I Scream Nails. Lia T had her water bottle at hand, spraying us at every opportunity she had…. bless! We even had the cutest puppy stop and visit us… and, even man the stand for a bit!
SATURDAY 9 FEBRUARY 2013
Yesterday we had a booked out day at Lady Petrova from 12pm until 7pm - non stop nails nails nails! Lots of beauties came in with naked nails and left happier ladies. If you haven’t been to Lady Petrova you should, its such a beautiful store. Below is a picture of a mural on their wall which was created by Melbourne based illustrator Jessica Singh (check her out www.jessicasingh.com).
Lady Petrova released her winter collection last night which is stunning. We designed a couple of matching nails too!
All and all we are loving it at Lady Petrova and we don’t want February to end xo Hopefully we see you all in the next few weeks there!

SATURDAY 3 FEBRUARY 2013
WOW! What a week! Its been awesome and busy, which is what we like. Had a hens day last weekend and we did 30 girls nails in 5 hours! ahhhhh awesome. It was a surprise for the hen, Laura so it was just lovely to see how excited and happy she was.. we love happy people!
During the week I met the amazing Emily of Dabs and Myla - they had a solo Melbourne exhibition opening at The Metro Gallery in Melbourne on Friday 2 February so I did some rainbow nails for Emily. And, she was lovely enough to give me a sweet print which is displayed next to my computer in the I Scream Nails studio :) (check out the pic of it below).
This week we also started our Lady Petrova pop up shop and will be popping up in store every Friday in February… of course we loooooooove Lady Petrova and Lady Courtney - if you haven’t visited their Flinders Lane store, you definitely should, it heaven xo
FRIDAY 25 JANUARY 2013
Yay! So excited that we got a mention in The Age, The (Melbourne) Magazine today :) Nail art has gone crazy in Melbourne and we love that!!
WEDNESDAY 16 JANUARY 2013
We love our friends at Heroes and Villains in North Fitzroy. Jules is always so welcoming so we decided to plonk ourselves in her shop for the third time! It was so nice being back there. What I love most about doing the pop ups is the ace people you get to meet that you wouldn’t normally meet… the ideas people have about how they want a nail design to look, what colours people put together that I normally wouldn’t - its awesome. These were my favorite of the weekend… I thought they were pretty special!
THURSDAY 10 JANUARY 2013
It’s been a little while since we’ve updated our blog but that’s only because 2012 was crazy and wild! Just the way we like it. We’ve been working so hard on coming up with some original designs for 2013 and I think we’ve done pretty well.
2012 saw I Scream Nails popping up all over Melbourne at only the most awesome of places including Lupa (Northcote), Dear Gladys (Northcote), Heroes and Villains (North Fitzroy), Lady Petrova (CBD), Alice McCall (Chapel St) and Gloss Cosmetics took us all the way to Sydney!
Can’t wait to share with all of you some awesome and exciting stuff we have happening in 2013… but for now its a secret xox
TUESDAY 2 OCTOBER 2012
The weekend was ace… even though it was grand final day we still managed to paint around 14 nails before heading to the pub to get justifiably tipsy!
My weekend favorite nails are pictured below! Painted by I Scream Nails girl Tracey! I especially love the little tiny lightning bolt from that cloud… awesome.
See you all this Friday night for the Lupa Garage Sale preview night! Free champagne and nails! wooooooooooohoooooooo
MONDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2012
What an awesome weekend for I Scream Nails. We got to put the fun and colour that we love so much on about 35+ fingertips! That means that each and every one of those lucky ladies (still waiting for some male customers!) goes into the draw to win the ‘Fiday Night Nail Art Party for the winner and 3 friends! YAY!
I’m a sucker for colour and cute designs so the photo below is my favorite at the moment….
See you all next weekend for some GRAND FINAL DAY nails… (note that we are closing early on Saturday so we can all get to the pub to watch the game so book in! 9.00am - 1.00pm).
