At the end of September I attended the Olympia Beauty exhibition in Kensington London. This exhibition is extremely popular within the beauty trade and includes beauty seminars, industry speakers, the Nailympics (competition) and the Art of Make Up (also a competition). There were also lots of stalls retailing all sorts of beauty supplies and equipment at trade prices. I was able to buy Nubar and Color Club polishes for about £2-3!
Gemma Lambert doing stilletto demonstrations. I'm a big fan of Gemma's and to see her work was a real treat for me. She even gave me a demo nail! Highly impractical with my office job, I know, so I wore it at this length for two days and then cut it down to where the bow ended.
Olympia Beauty will be happening again on 22nd and 23rd of September 2013 and you can register for free tickets. As there is still another event to go in Dublin, you can't register for 2013 just yet. This is something that you will not want to miss, so keep an eye out for it.
