Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc

nails inc exclusive vvb victoria beckhamThe much awaited VVB collaboration between Nails Inc and Victoria Beckham has finally launched, exclusively on the brand’s website and it has all the makings of a must-have beauty product!

Based on the Victoria, Victoria Beckham SS15 line, the luxury capsule collection comes in two shades; Bamboo, a pink bone coloured shade and Judo, a rich statement red, both in a limited edition glass bottle designed by Posh herself. The polishes perfectly reflect Victoria Beckham’s fashion line with colour block designs and a matte texture, each bottle has been made with the finest Venetian glass and hand frosted to reveal the polish on either side.

Worried it’s all about the packaging? Well, it seems even the polish has stepped up in quality with a brand new technology which combines bamboo extract for healthy nails and a stretch-to-fit formula allowing polish to glide on smoothly for a flawless finish. Each polish costs £25 or you can buy the set for £45 which all come in a beautiful gift box!

The VVB Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc Collection launches today online and in stores from February 2015.nails inc exclusive vvb victoria beckhamnails inc exclusive vvb victoria beckham

Christian Louboutin Nail Polish Collection

Having heard all the hype surrounding Christian Louboutin‘s launch into the beauty industry, I was very excited to get up close and personal with the stunning nail polish collection this weekend at the Printemps mall in Paris. As is to be expected with all things Louboutin, this collection is nothing short of majestic and I’m actually more drawn by the design of the nail polish bottle than the quality and colour of the product itself!

And for the inspiration behind this new venture into the world of cosmetics, it’s actually pretty simple as Christian Louboutin explains,

The red sole was born from red nail polish. I am giving back to beauty what the shoes took from the nails many years ago.’

No surprise then that the star of the collection is a dramatic red to match the shade of the designer’s iconic red soles but more unusual is the slightly terrifying weapon-like lid which measures exactly 20,5 cm, the same height as Christian Louboutin’s highest heel designed for the brand… Quite literally a killer heel!

I tested out the star product, Rouge Louboutin, and honestly… I really, really didn’t want to like it (I mean, it’s a nail polish that costs more than my week’s food supply!) but actually I kind of loved it! The colour is gorgeous, the quality is second to none, no second coat necessary, and the design is spectacular, a total work of art.

So there you have it, I am now starving for a week but with one hell of a new sculpture!

Find the full collection of colours, including the Rouge Louboutin online and in selected stores now for £36 / 45 euros.

Limited Edition Stella McCartney x Breast Cancer Awareness

As you know, the month of October is all about Breast Cancer Awareness and their signature pink products. Basically, this means that whilst world-famous landmarks are turning pink in honour of the charity, many brands are creating their own pink products, with a percentage of the price being donated to the cause, in some cases even 100%!

Whilst ideally, I feel donations should really be more about the cause itself rather than a shopping excuse, pink products have helped to raise a great deal for the foundation and who’s to say donating can’t be a little bit of fun too? Just be sure to check that your item is a legitimate pink ribbon product and not just a mere marketing ploy!

From special edition Clinique Great Cause Moisturizers and pink shades of Bobbi Brown lipgloss to One Hope Chardonnay, there are plenty of options available but my absolute favourite is this Stella McCartney exclusive neon pink bra as modelled by Kate Moss… the design even incorporate the little pink ribbon details on the straps!

Limited Edition Gemma Relaxing Balconnet Bra, £50 (‘Designed to raise awareness and increase support, with a percentage of the profits aiding the Linda McCartney Centre‘.)
