Whether you’ve been a part of one, or are privy to the stories that unfold, we all know a thing or two about hens parties and the peculiarities that go along with them - topless waiters, sashes and veils, and eventually marching the future bride to a seedy pub that plays ‘70s and ‘80s hits all night long.

Not your cup of tea? Enter Trophy Wife Nail Art’s lacquer-loving Chelsea Bagan and cake queen Hayley McKee of Sticky Fingers Bakery. With experience in running their own separate businesses (each with their own cult following in Melbourne), the dynamic duo have paired up to create a more elegant alternative to traditional hens parties.

“We felt our customers were similarly aligned so the hens package came about. We thought a cake-munching, nail-buffing day would be a cool idea for a hens party or just a girls day out,” says McKee.

The packages take place at Trophy Wife Nail Art’s beautiful Richmond studio, where a team of nail technicians will help you and your friends choose from a range of creative manicures, or teach you how to do some designs for yourself in a mini workshop. While you get pampered, you can also satisfy your sweet tooth with deluxe cakes from Sticky Fingers Bakery, such as the Pina Colada Cake, Popcorn Fantale Slice, Aztec Chocolate Cupcakes or the Marshmallow, Raspberry and Burnt Butter Cupcakes- an exclusive creation for this collaboration.

You can still have the big night out, but this way you get to come home with a good manicure rather than a bad hangover.

Bookings can be made by contacting Trophy Wife Nail Art on 0422 052 874, and prices start at $30 per person for groups of 10 people or more. The team is flexible with their availabilities and packages are not solely limited to hens parties.
