The Varnished and the Unvarnished

This picture isn’t a ludicrous flight of fancy. Those nails belong to Bonnie, a girl who really does scrabble about under the bonnet of her car checking oil, batteries and spark plug. She also shoes the odd bit of typing and her fair share of washing up, plug changing and picture hanging.

But maybe we have been a little unfair. Bonnie is not only one of our favourite make-up artists (working for Elizabeth Arden) but she’s a fully trained manicurist too.
