My Nails: I Have Been Branded By Olivia Rubin

What I love about press day season, other than seeing what goodies I want to buy the following season, has to be the pampering whether it is a hand massage or even a facial, which I have to admit I have never had time to stop for, but one thing I love to have done is my nails.

The latest craze is for brands to commission nail artists to design complimentary manicures to go with the collections, and on Wednesday I had the pleasure of being branded at Olivia Rubin’s press day with a ball of wool, which features in her gorgeous autumn/winter 2012 collection **more to come on that next week**.

I got to choose my colours, I went for OPI’s Pink Friday as my base colour, because come on I am a Barbie girl it would be wrong not to add pink into the mix, and for my ball of wool I decided on the most gorgeous electric blue shade OPI’s Dating A Royal.

Thanks to Mercedez aka Miss Merx Mani’s who did an amazing job on the wool, this is all hand painted, no stencil here, which has surprised a few people this week, and best bit is Mercedez added the most amazing fast-drying top coat from Seche that left my baby pink nails chip-free.

So what do you think – will balls of wool nail art catch on? I hope so, I love mine!!!MyNailsOR4 My Nails: I Have Been Branded By Olivia Rubin %tagMyNailsOR3 My Nails: I Have Been Branded By Olivia Rubin %tagMyNailsOR1 My Nails: I Have Been Branded By Olivia Rubin %tag
