As a graduate of fine arts from London’s Central Saint Martins, Stephnie Shek is no stranger to artefacts that are pleasing to the eye. Coupled with a love for travel, Rome is the ideal destination for her next trip.
“Italy has been on my travel bucket list for some time, but I’m travelling a lot for weddings at the moment so I haven’t had a chance to visit yet,” she said.

Following her studies, it was clear that Stephnie’s career path would follow an artistic direction. Returning to Hong Kong in 2014, she channelled her artistic flair and launched her nail salon EightyEight, on 53 Wellington Street Central, which has gone from strength to strength.
With talented nail-artists recreating almost any look that your heart desires, you can try anything from Swarovski crystal embellished Pomeranians to classic colour blocking.
Italian women are renowned for their impeccable sense of style, something Stephnie herself is passionate about. “Hands are like a woman’s second face; nailcare is like make-up for your hands. Some people prefer to keep it light and simple, with a French manicure, while others prefer a bolder appearance.”
