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  

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!!!!

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!!


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!

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

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