Sorry, can't stand it any longer - PLEASE READ THIS TO YOUR PRESENTERS.
Dear Steve Bennett,
I doubt whether this message will be passed on to you, I expect when it is read it will be thrown away and an effigy of me made so that the presenters can stick pins into it. BUT, here goes anyway. I may have to give up buying from Gems because of this.
There must be others like me who cringe at the close up shots of presenters hands!!!! We want to see the jewellery, that's beautiful but hands, well, that's different. Ruth Linnett and Ali Defoy and the lovely girl with the red titian hair have got lovely natural nails and lovely natural colour skin. They do not appear to use tangerine skin dyes and false nails and because of this they are much nicer to look at; they are natural. Angeline Plummer and Vicky Burton take note. Can't look at you, sorry.
It is really horrible to have 40 times magnification of someones plastic nails and close ups of really badly applied skin colourants, it looks awful.
I know I am not the only one who thinks like this, sometimes I can hardly take my eyes off the horrible hands that are showing the jewellery off. Why do they think that being the colour of a tangerine and having nails that look so so unreal is making them look more attractive. I have also noticed the arm pits of girls wearing low cut dresses are also very orange to look at, how horrid is that!!! Yuk.
Maybe it would if they were professionally 'dyed' and with nails applied by a qualified technician that were far better quality than the ones they are wearing. Please don't keep subjecting us to such unappealing hands, and it's isn't only the women who dye themselves up, Rod Jinks looked really orange the other day and when this stuff starts to wear off it looks worse like dirty hands, oh please!!! Have a word.
I would like to end on a good note; YES, THERE IS ONE!!! I really do enjoy the banter and all the presenters are lovely to listen to, I would like to come on the week end and meet some of them but they may kill me after reading this. My fav, fav, fav, presenter is, wait for it, SCOT WORSFOLD!!! He is not tangerine, he's lovely.
