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!

Out with one, in with another!

On-trend OPI colors paired with a superior formula earned this complete nail care line a place on most nail salon shelves. While the regular OPI nail polish has a reputation for long-wear with minimal chipping and peeling, the already successful company decided to launch an extended wear product within their OPI Axxium line. The long wearing OPI gel nail polish color is formulated to easily soak off within several weeks of application. Applied from a small pot with a brush similar to a paint brush, the gel color is a salon-only professional-use product that must be applied in conjunction with a UV lamp for proper product setting. If you’re considering a OPI gel manicure, here’s a look at some of the benefits and potential pitfalls of OPI’s latest gel polish endeavor:

Pros of OPI Gel Polish

OPI Axxium will be available at Pinkcrust from Feb 2011 xoxo
