New York & London Fashion Week Nails. Bex's Instagram favourites.


I don't know about you but for the past two weeks my Instagram has been chocked full off the New York & London Fashion Weeks and I've been so inspired by some on the nail artistry happening. 

Here I have collated some of my favourite artists/salons and looks from the two weeks and shall spend the next few months basque group in the trends ready for Autumn and Winter. 



No contrasts here. It's all about black on black and white on white. Although you might find it difficult to find a foundation to match. For now.


Sophy Robson is one of the ultimate nail artists. It is one of my dreams to visit her London salon. One day!




Negative space and Minimalist nails are not going anywhere by the looks of things. I love that these perfect straight lines were all my hand. Deceptively difficult but so effective!



Sharmadean Reid and her extensive team of WAH nails girls are usually one of the first salons to create, pick up, or bring back trends. Here we can see they're rocking the 90s Nail Piercings. Time to hoke out my old piercing tool then! 




Essie proving that gold is never old if you can mix it up with the minimalist trends. 




This look from Caseynails actually took me a bit by surprise. It's quite "old school" nail art, a bit of a throw back to when everyone was starting out and just trying to perfect their lines. Perfect for recreating. 


Sophie of The Illustrated Nail is another name you need to know if you're in any way interested in nail art. Here she used a custom mix of 3 polishes to create this deep Oxblood red for Jasper Conran! *makes note to buy all the Oxblood colours I can find*


Enough of all these wearable looks though here are some ridiculous avant-garde looks from CND (of Shellac fame) at NYFW.



Imagine heading down to post office with these bad boys on! *pokes eye* 



So that's my Instagram run down. So inspired by these looks and can't wait to get to work.

Which are your faves?

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is

DIY fashion colour with BLEACH London

Im a bit naughty when it comes to my hair. I only get it cut roughly every 3 months and have a tendency to just let my colour fade until I can't take it anymore which, to be fair, is an improvement on my student days of cutting it myself twice a year and hoping for the best with harsh box dyes.  Praise the gods for the wonderful  Sharon  at  Paul Stafford Hairdressing  for converting me to the salon! What I love about her is her adventurousness with my colour and recently I've been rocking an amazing copper & pink combo but as with most all fashion colours it fades fast and hard and can be rather expensive to keep up.  But thanks to a combination of a £10 voucher with a Boots 3for2 offer on the new  BLEACH London  home hair care products what did I get? An awesome way to freshen up my colour without breaking the bank! So who are BLEACH? They're basically the new hip & trendy salon in London and are coming out with amazing on-trend looks such as pastel colours, dip d
