Nail Rock Nail Wraps

Nail Rock Nail Wraps
In keeping with my current all-things-nails obsession, I love these home wraps from Nail Rock. I have had a little go – and was worse than useless it has to be said – but that doesn’t reflect the product, I don’t think.

Anna Sui Make Up
I absolutely love this brand and wish almost weekly that it would come back to the UK. The packaging and innovations are gorgeous – who wouldn’t want a little collection of Anna? I found these on the Japanese Anna Sui site.

They’ve recently been contributing to the beauty world by inventing a robotic hair washer. Yes, really. You stick your head in the basin and two robot arms guide 16 fingers with, it is claimed, the same... Read More

YSL Manicure Couture – Sorted!

YSL Manicure Couture - Sorted!
Yes! At last, I’ve mastered the Couture Nails….but needed help! I ordered some nail guides from the internet and they’ve turned what was a complete frustration into an absolute breeze. Here, I’m using the Duo Belle de Nuit; a very deep aubergine shade, tipped with gold. The brushes are angled to make free hand couturing... Read More
