My nails for London Fashion Week

During London Fashion Week recently, I was lucky enough to be able to assist David Barton in creating manicures for the Mark Fast fashion show.

After the invitation, I had a bit of a crisis - what manicure to you wear to a fashion show?? Okay, so I wasn't going to be on the runway myself (obviously) but I didn't want my nails to look bland.

Barry M's 'Cyan Blue'.

I spent so long on this manicure...only for it chip on me a few hours after I finished it! I'd used a gel nail polish underneath the normal nail lacquer and I think that this is what made the design chip so quickly.

Needless to say, I had to remove the whole thing...and ended up going with bare nails!!

I have a feeling that they would have chipped at the show anyway. I spent the whole time there putting Minx wraps or false nails and sticking them on models. My fingers actually ached afterwards. I'm still really happy that I got to experience such a fantastic show. Hopefully, they'll call me again next season.

Have a great weekend!
