On Saturday night I popped over to the Fashion Monitor Style Lounge at The Mayfair Hotel and after grabbing a much needed glass of white wine and chatting to the lovely Fashion Monitor and Beauty Works girlies was suddenly drawn towards the nail table, as the various array of brightly coloured new House of Holland and Elegant Touch designs caught my eye and I ran over to investigate further. Having seen the hype surrounding these babies it was great fun to join the guests ooh-ing and aah-ing over the totally unique, bold patterns, and the endless amusement over the fact the 'face ache' nails set has googly eyes on the nails - which actually move - oh the novelty! I opted for the monochrome-with-a-textured-twist 'Polka-dot-it' and LOVE them! I have never received so many comments on my nails from total strangers - backstage at Eugene Lin even the models were commenting on them and one of the Toni&Guy style team asked if they could snap a picture they were so enamoured by my mani- felt like a bit of a celeb
I had the nails applied on Saturday night and skip forward to now (Tuesday night) they have lasted me through another day rushing around at LFW, rummaging through my bag, taking photos, re-applying makeup and manically tweeting and instagramming plus two full days at the office constantly typing and one gym session - without a single nail 'pinging' off or hanging off (hate it when you have a wobbly false nail!) - usually I find I have to carry nail glue around with me whilst wearing falsies as they're forever falling off, so not only am I impressed with the look I'm super impressed by the longevity. Their really is something to suit everyone in the range and I am particularly keen to get my hands on the 'Get Nailed' set.
