PC rating 4/5

LFW inspiration……

Day 3 @ London Fashion week saw uber gorgeous models grace the catwalk for Vivienne Westwood and Temperly! Jenny Longworth nails sponsored by Revlon was running the show for talons backstage for Temperly. Our gal, Hella was also amongst the JLN(for Revlon) team. Gucci Westman(for Revlon) was the creator of the fab smoky purple eyeΒ  and hot red lip look! (we told you purple smokey eyes were hot, didn’t we…uh huh)

The nails?

We were very impressed! nails were ‘peach smoothie’ from Revlons scented perfume range… “after painting a portion 0f 36 hands it was a delight to breath in something pleasant rather than the usual toxic fumes, thumbs up to Revlon for that!” -Hella. The order of the day was a very attractive nude applied to absolute precision!(a la Jenny’s instructions!)

However the PC girlies have been inspired by this chic and demure look…….so we’ve of course gone for the absolute opposite effect by embracing our latest edition to the PC colour line up which is Essies’s ‘berry hard’, our first customer to snap this up was a burlesque dancer and it was le coup de foudre for this extravagant performer(talk about perfect match…huh) and this colour was complemented with pointy oval gel nails which resulted in a total 50’s style tribute….

And some other great finds were….. Revlons quick dry top coat, it does what it says on the bottle and has proven very productive in the salon!

PinkCrust @ London Fashion week

As london fashion week kicked off on february 18th 2011, Pinkcrust Director, Hella, was backstage working in the Jenny Longworth team doing some fab nails for Felder felder!

The color in question was a custom blend of the nail girls brand creating a ‘grey-taupe-beige’

“hair and make up was kinda manic, but Jenny’s nail team just breezed through without any real hiccups. The look was really understated, it was a perfect compliment to the hair and make up, I loved it! it wasΒ  great working with Jenny too”- hella

The PinkCrust team are looking forward to spilling the beans on ss/11’sΒ  hottest nail trends!!!

In at no. 10Β  is Fergie who even has a minx pattern named after her – fergie strips

9 Solange Knowles, french mani’s are not for this gal

8 Beyonce Knowles, were definetly impressed with her fantastic make up looks and it seems as tho her nails are as equally impressive,
check out this retro baby blue from her ‘why don’t you love me



7 Lady Gaga is known for here eccentric style but we love this demure look, the long oval 70’s nails are ever so flattering

6 Kim Kardashian was definitely ahead of the game when she sported these white nails, brilliant!


5 Katy Perry’s consistently kept it interesting with her craaazy nails, she’s now teamed up with OPI and has a range due jan 2011, hhmmm we’ll have to buy a couple of bottles before we pass judgement!

4 Khole Kardashian, although khole doesn’t get to wild with her nails, she’s high on our list because she sports such wearable and flattering shades, she reminds us of what the right shade can do for your hands!

3 Dita Von Tease has stayed totally true to her modern burlesque look, commitment like this MUST be praised

2 nick minaj has done it all! We just love how she promotes
pink, but on her recent trip to London, despite parading around in the craziest yet coolest of outfits, we couldn’t help but notice how simple and elegant she kept her nails with one of our favourite OPI colours ‘over the taupe’

Number 1 is of course RHIANNA…..every shape and style has been on the talons of this style queen yet we’re always amazed at her ability to think out of the box…it looks like she did it again with these orange/yellow nails, a total clash to the fiery red hair however a total a match to it….. Ri Ri, we salute you!

What do you think? Is there anyone else who deserves to be on our list?
