London Fashion week!!!!

Sept 16th-Sept 23rd saw some of the biggest names in fashion come together to showcase their SS12 collections. Our girl Hella was backstage working as a nail technician(As part of the Jenny Longworth team) at a few shows. Whilst there, a few big trends were observed and relayed to the PinkCrust camp. we’ll let a few out of the bag and say that metallics and monochrome black & White zebra print were very prevalent….but if you want to be at the forefront of fashion in the talon department then you’ll have to come into the salon for a SS12 manicure!!!!

beautiful brides go for stunning eyes!

We’ve been busy over  the summer period tending to many brides and the biggest trend by far is the subtle smokey eye.  As lips Can wear away very easily throughout the day many brides have chosen to emphesise their eyes as a way of keep their make up at full effect for the whole day.

top tips to remeber for wedding make up

1. Waterproof mascara ALWAYS!

2. Stay away from fashion trends- You may end up looking very dated  in a decade or so when you look back on your pictures

3.Wear what will make you comfortable- As confidence will always compliment your look!

4. Fake lashes are a total MUST, you will kick yourself if you dont wear them

For bridal trial make up drop us a line at the salon to discuss your big day make up. xoxo

Stilla winner!

Make up favourite stilla has made a return to the UK AND is now more accessible than ever! There are six wearable colours available at boots and boots online. Number 1 in this range for us pinkcrust girlies is the uber versatile Convertable colours for lips and cheeks £16.
We love it because…. This Can be worn under lip gloss, can be added on top of make up(cheeks of course) during the day for an instant make up boost, as the clours are close to sheer the texture and tones give an incredible dewiness to you skin.

2 min Top tips for toes

Summer is on our doorstep! And of course pedi’s are on the rise! Thus meaning ‘my feet are a state’ comments are on the increase. Since no one ever has the time to spend longer than 2 mins on their feet here are some quick sure-fire ways to ok looking feet.
pumice stones in the bath or shower-use all you strength to give hard skin areas a good scrub, this is very effective in the long run. Do this every other day if possible

Foot scrubs removes dead skin cells and moisturise, doing this every other day is a good idea

Moisturise (natural oils such as almond oil and olive oil are great for feet) a very underrated tool in preventing callous

A monthly visit to PC for a ‘proper pedi’ is highly recommended. Why? No bladed tools are used, so skin is not cut and left to repair itself causing further hard skin AND it’s just plain relaxing!

some more tips……

Soaking feet in warm water with vinegar or lemon(you shold surely be able to find these things in your cpboard somewhere!) helps kill, bacteria underneath nails and also whiten nails, we wont go into the technic of this but this really works

Sally Hansons just feet spa Sugar scrub is excellent for moisturising feet and smoothing them, we definitely recommend this product.

Oscar nails

Having studied the red carpet celebrity nails, we have concluded that nude nails was the trend of the day (and most likely the next coming months)….

Which promptly reminded us of our ‘ no fail’ french mani favourite Orly’s Angel face. Why? consistency is  “creamy” giving good coverage and the colour absolutely results in perfect looking clean and tidy nails. Excellent worn alone or with a white tip! however it was duely noted that Anne Hathaway’s natural nails were down to high-end brand Deborah Lippmann polish in ‘I dreamed you’. However if you need to get your hands on a cheaper high street alternative, we highly recommend Bourjois ‘so laque’ in ‘rose Lounge’-it offers excellent shine, longevity, superb consistency, wide brush for easier coverage…guess you catch our drift, get this!!


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 was  great working with Jenny too”- hella
