Nail Art in Kia Car Ad

This is the most creative thing ever.  Kia came up with the world’s first nailart stop-motion animation film, how cool is that? It took twenty five days, nine hundred nails, 2-hours drawing each nail and a whooping 1,200 bottles of nail polish to make this fabulous short.  I am not a manicurist myself but to me nails are a work of art and those who spend hours making fabulous creations are painters.  To see the video go here.

Favorite Price-friendly UK Beauty Loot

Currently loving these brands, since getting them in April, I have been using them consistently both for myself and clients. Me Me Me just stays on forever, Sleek Palette layers beautifully and Tresemme Matte Powder holds hair like no other. ** I paid for these myself**

  • MeMeMe Nailpolish (Superdrug) – Amazing colours and long lasting, what’s not to like?
  • Sleek Pallette (Superdrug) – Introduced by Nicci Jackson at MUSE, I fell in love with the texture and effect when layered using a cream base. Good value for money plus nice pigment, use them at night for a bold eye, promise your eyes will pop and heads will turn.
  • Tresemme 24hr Sky Plumping Powder (Boots) – Need hair lift and volume? This little pot will help, a LOT. For £6, it is worth every penny. It is brand new and not yet on their website but already in stock in the UK.
