Ref. 25825-44Children at Rodbourne Cheney Primary School will welcome the summer holidays with vibrant hands - thanks to Georgina Akers.

The 24-year-old beautician, from Rodbourne Cheney, treated a class of 11-year-olds to a nail art workshop.

She said: "It is a really special school because the children are so creative. Everyone got involved and used their imagination to create really colourful results."

Rachel Cole, 11, from Gorse Hill, said: "Painting your nails is a difficult job but it is worth having the patience. We had great fun and our nails look fabulous."

Once their nails were painted, children decorated them with glitter and jewels.

Natasha Zebroski, 11, from Pinehurst, was equally thrilled.

She said: "I'm going to Florida in the holidays and my hands look very Hollywood."

Aimee Fielding supervised the class and said everyone had a wonderful time.

"It was the perfect way to end the school term and the children feel very lucky," she said.

The children also received goodie bags containing nail and beauty products.
