This week we are shining the spotlight on our fantastic face-painter Nikki from Neon Tiger Face Paint and Sparkle. We love her creations so much she often has to do our faces before an event! You can contact Nikki for prices and bookings through her Facebook page.
What’s your name and where do you come from?
Nikki From neon Tiger face paint and sparkle – I live in Sale
What do you do at OKS events?
I am one of the regular face painters and glitter artists
Which three words best describe you?
Happy, creative, dynamic (like Batman!)
What are your top tips for keeping the family entertained in the North West?
Follow the Our Kids Social girls around (I do!) as their events are always fab. Also Rainy City Kids are great for info on what’s going on across Manchester and family event listings.
Have you been to any great festivals or are there any you want to get to?
I’d love to go to Geronimo either to paint or to take my girls.
What is on the kitchen disco play-list in your house?
My husband is a DJ so he likes to control the music, we generally listen to Misoul Radio, Hands Free Radio and a bit of Kiss FM for pop for my daughters.
What’s your favourite place for a knees up without the nippers?
We love to go to a Suncebeat festival in Croatia when we can talk the parents into having the kids for a week, but I think maybe we will just take them along with us next year as it’s pretty child friendly.
What was the first album / single you bought and what format did you buy it on?
First single was Slow Hand by the Pointer Sisters on vinyl- still a Tuuuuuune!
What would be your band T-shirt of choice?
I like dance music on the Defected music label, I have t-shirts with their logo on.
What is a favourite family meal at your house and do you have a great recipe to share?
I love my slow cooker and do a lovely sausage and bean casserole that we all enjoy.
What is the best thing about OKS events?
Eclectic venues and fun for adults but plenty for kiddies to do. I worked at family ‘raves’ that just don’t have enough activities for the children, we can’t expect them to be entertained by our nostalgia alone!!!
