Make a diary date if you live in London to head to Selfridges for the very special DIOR Royal Manicure between 24th and 30th May. To celebrate Selfridges’ Big Bang, DIOR has shipped in a nail art machine that precision prints symbols onto you nails – you can opt for the Christian Dior logo or a very regal crown design.

There is a £20 booking fee (redeemable against purchase) to have a flash make-over and Demi Lune manicure using Dior Vernis in Red Royalty, and then be escorted to the DIOR taxi (oh yes, the Dior grey leather with cannage pattern seating!) waiting near the counter and have a professional photo taken. The picture is then printed for you to take home as a special souvenir in a ‘Diamond Pass’ wallet.

Now, that seems like a splendid way to spend an afternoon! Tip: if you book after 4pm, you’ll get Pimms as well. To book ring: 0207 318 3696.

The mysterious ‘nail machine’!

And, if you can’t get to an appointment at those times, there are two special beauty evenings, 31st May and 7th June but no taxi 🙁 .
