Beauty: I Want Sophy Robson Nails

I do love nail art, I would like to say I was great at it actually I am awful it always seems to go wrong, so if like me you need a hand in nailing the design why not check out Kings Road salon, Hari’s where Sophy Robson is the resident nail artist.

From painting Kate Moss’ nails bright red in her latest Rimmel ad campaign to tending to Pixie Geldolfs talons, Sophy is one in-demand nail artist, and come fashion week all the designers want her backstage creating exclusive looks for them. Remember the Dalmation look at Topshop Unique’s autumn/winter 2011 show? Or how about the Eek eyes from Giles Deacon? Yep, all created by Sophy.

Well for her spring/summer 2012, Sophy has designed 15 new nail designs exclusively for Hari’s, with designs including House of Holland’s houndstooth print, a sea-inspired ‘Into the blue’ taking note to Chanel, Versace, and Holly Fulton’s spring/summer collection, and you can even have Rihanna’s new favourite label Boy London  on your nails, but my favourite has to be ‘talk to the hand!’

The new looks will be available from May, with manicures starting from £32 and pedicures from £55, I would recommend booking as I am sure with designs like that she will get booked up pretty quick.

Video Loving: House of Holland Pre-Collection SS12

I don’t think Henry Holland can produce anything that isn’t instantly cool. I loved his take on QVC with his partner in crime Pixie Geldof, and I think he has gone one better with this amazing fashion promo for his House of Holland pre-collection spring/summer 2012.

Shot by Mariano Vivanco, it stars Henry Holland’s latest muse Eliza Cummings, who I think it is incredible in this film. Filmed for the MTV generation, I love the use of Neneh Cherry’s Buffalo Stance and the way Eliza sings along.

If Henry has his way SS12 will be a sea of technicolour; I love the use of navy mixed with fluoro stripes, girlie florals and edgy skull and bone prints, especially on the maxi dresses.

Check out the whole collection here, but my favourite piece is this beauty, love how the stripes are made of bones!!!

Also did you spy the amazing nails? Done of course by the very talented Sophy Robson, Eliza’s nails are a cool tri-colour french tip using a Chanel midnight bluer, a customised Illamasqua fuchsia pink and a Neon green by American Apparel.
