Real Snakeskin manicure for the brave

Today seems to be the day for weird and wacky beauty news and I’ve just come across a real life snakeskin manicure. Not snakeskin STYLE- but ACTUAL real snakeskin, the type a snake sheds! Seriously, this is a whole new level of crazy. OK, it doesn’t’ hurt the snake at all, but ewwww. The hygiene. The feel. The weird way your nails will look…

How this works is that you get a Snake Skin manicure using Bisosclupture nail gels (basically Shellac/ gel nails) where the SANITIZED (Thank god) snake skin is embedded as one of the gel layers, and the finish is smooth and glossy. It should last around 2 weeks and they say there are 170 odd colour combinations- well no snake is the same right?

This was apparently big in New York and we now can have this done on London at the Chelsea Hand and Foot Spa.

Prices are pretty high- £20 per fingernail and £35 per toenail, with a massive discount for a full set (£160 hands, £150 feet).

I think I might have to sit this trend out- how about you?

Five cool and creative Eye Makeup Art designs

We pay a lot of attention to beautiful tattoos and stunning clothing, and I think it’s time eye makeup had its share of the spotlight. I want to highlight some innovative and artistic designs created using eyeshadow, and I don’t mean a simple smokey eye- I’m talking ladybugs and Hello Kitty eye makeup!

Confused? You won’t be after you’ve gazed at the following photos. There are some seriously talented folk out there, and this is just a short overview of some of the images and styles they are creating with sheer ingenuity and a makeup blending brush. It has me tempted to try something as well but where to start? Here are my current five favourite eye makeup artistic displays. (See Bow Eye Makeup Art above!)


Does this eye makeup make you want a Burger King burger? The fact that a company is getting into eye makeup art shows this trend is staying around!

Matalan AW12 Shoe Collection

Matalan isn’t always on the top of everuon’s fashion radar, but they really deserve a lot more attention. May I draw your eyes to their dazzling Autumn Winter 2012 selection of shoe styles? They’ve interpreted design that have been popular on the catwalk (and every Winter to offer a line of well priced hugely covetable footwear that will have your mouth watering- OK, mine I admit it, a true shoe crazy girl.

Their collection is really versatile; you have studded trainers, patent ankle boots and skyscraper heels. Colour palettes are black, nude, gold and red and very glam looking and they’ve even incorporated velvet into some shoes which is unusual- look at those red velvet grandpa loafers- amazing!

Real Fox Fur bikini wax !

We all know that it’s nice to keep you lady garden in shape, but have you ever thought about covering it with pink fluffy fox fur? No, me neither.

To be honest, I feel pretty brave even having a landing strip and have yet to go to Hollywood, so the idea of this is a little out there for me. Yes, I have tried Vajazzling, but that’s not quite the same thing. The Completely Bare salon in New York is offering some speciality waxing styles called The Foxy Bikini Wax, Merkin Bikini, and The Carnivale Bikini Wax.  What does having this involve?

Well, the Foxy Bikini Wax involves a laser hair treatment or a bikini wax. The fox fur is then applied and will last around 3 days for the high price of $140. The Carnivale Wax includes feathers whilst the merkin.. well you know what a merkin is right?

Rachel Gilbert AW12 Preview

Rachel Gilbert is a brand that has just got onto my radar and I couldn’t be happier. The designer hails from Australia and her collection comprises of floaty shirts, pleated skirts and stunning embellished dresses.

It’s her foreign roots that makes this Autumn Winter Collection quite astounding to Brits, as she makes no allowances for the climate with her pastel hued collection that sparkles under the light with intricate beading and adornments on every available area. I love her collection- the floaty skirts and tops are incredibly wearable and the colour palette makes them look so light and airy.

When it comes to evening dresses we’re talking serious glamour, and Rachel Gilbert has this is spades, creating dresses that flatter a woman’s shape and are very red carpet worthy.

Nails Inc Metallic Collection

I’m a huge fan of metallic nail varnishes as I love how they catch the light and make fingers super reflective- and they’re sooo much easier to remove than glitter varnishes.

To be a true metallic shade you need to really catch the light- think tinfoil for the nails- and I’m happy to say this new collection fits this remit well. They don’t have an ultra shine, as they have more of a chrome finish, but I like how this gives the nails a more subtle look, rather than a in your face mirror finish.

Darling Clothes AW12 Bag designs

Darling is a brand that likes to give back to its customers, and they’ve created a range of beautiful bags and purses that will have your mouth watering.

This is the second season they have EVER created bags and I have to say I’m impressed. They have mixed soft leather with patent to create an array fo designs, from slouchy handbags and large totes, to cutesy clutch bags and embroidered satchels. They have a really cute array of coin purses and prices are very reasonable, from £30 and up for some really high quality stuff.

Created in 2008, Darling keeps getting better, and their bag line is just a small exciting sign of things to come. Nadia Moraes is the founder and designer and  the designs all have a slightly retro feel to them, from small details such as the pretty lining or the cute way that clasps are aligned. The tone for the brand is ‘English Vintage’ and this has been captured with class. Let me know what pieces are your favourites!
