The other week I attended a fabulous event hosted by No.7 to mark the launch of their 20 new, fashion-led nail polishes. The new Stay Perfect nail colours range from the punchy to the pastel, flirting with metallic and matte finishes, perfectly capturing the SS11 trends for your talons. The formulation of these nail varnishes has been updated, a welcome discovery as I have previously found No.7 polishes a tad thick and easily chipped. This new formulation however contains Lumiere powder using diamond core technology to lift colour and shine, whilst Okoume extract increases flexibility and prevents nails becoming brittle. I have definitely noticed a difference with the new formula and have enjoyed flaunting a few of their fresh new shades.
During the night, as well as being able to ogle over all the new nail colours, we were treated to the presence of Jamie Nunn, top celebrity nail technician. Jamie is the head of nails on the X-factor as well as transforming the talons of a whole host of women, from models to TV stars. Jamie demonstrated a range of different nail art techniques which we simultaneously were able to recreate on our own nail wheel. My favourite was the antique marble effect which I plan to show you in a separate post. It was really enjoyable and fun to experiment with some new techniques, even if my attempts were a little less than desirable. Practice makes perfect!
Below are a selection of the nail colours that really took my fancy and I was able to take away with me from the night. I have tried to capture the colours best using the flash and then no flash.
Perky, Stand Back, Hot to Trot, Cheeky Chops
Dollar, Jammy, Disco Nights, Tangy
The new No.7 Stay Perfect nail colours are out now in Boots and retail at £7.50 (10ml)
