red, red and more RED

One of our favourite style queens, Ms Olivia Palermo, seems to be following one of our favourite beauty rules which is…’find your colour and stick to it!’ We’re loving that Olivia consistently rocks the ever so iconic red shade. As we all know any outfit can be upgraded instantly with exceptional grooming  which means attention to detail to. Red polishes always has the aforementioned effects! Now, although it may seem fairly repetitive to work the same colour over and over it doesn’t have to be if you’re alternating shades! here  are a few über chic colours worth trying…oh yes, with us it’s unanimous, red is best worn on short nails

Essie Lollipop, Olivia’s go to colours(may we add),   Chanel Le Vernis in Shanghai red  and Nars Jungle red (DBP-, toluene, and formaldehyde-free) xoxo  

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 eye  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!
