Lucy at Olympia Beauty Exhibition in London - show pics and haul (very pic heavy)
I'm back from Olympia Beauty exhibition that was epic! Looking back I regret not getting even more polishes and not taking more pics :-/ Next exhibition in the spring!
Essie is always present at exhibitions and it always looks so pretty and clean. They've had the Stylenomics collection for Fall 2012 but no metallics and glitters that I wanted to buy :( Because of that I didn't buy a single Essie polish...
This was a stand for Color Club and Ruby Wing polishes where I sadly didn't buy anything...
And now we're talking OPI! The first thing I went to check out is whether they have the Skyfall collection for Holiday 2012...oh yes they did! More on it later...
I've also stopped at the Leighton Denny stand where I've met Nina Taylor!!! We've had a lovely chat about hand modelling and later on Leighton Denny himself joined us and complimented on my nail art manicure! Would you believe that? I was over the moon! Nina has really beautiful hands and nails, I could believe it! They were really small and thin but they looked just perfect.
There have been many stand like this including Minx that have been offering nail wraps. Nothing for me though..
I've spent a lot of time at the China Glaze stand and bought quite a few nail polishes. I've been really looking forward to get some shades from Bohemian collection and Wicked collection.
I did not really go to Pegy Sage stand with exception of taking this quick snap and I've completely missed their holographic collection! What a horror!
I've discovered Cetuem brand a year ago at this same exhibition. They offer professional beauty care but also a very wide range of nail polishes. I've reviewed some Cetuem polishes in the past but wasn't very happy with them to be honest. That's why I didn't buy any this year..
I've spotted this stand with Orly polishes hoping they would have the new glitter range but sadly they did not. And they told me off for taking pictures!!
My next stop was Seche stand where I've got Seche Restore for my Seche Vite topcoat and some other goodies for my dear friend. What's interesting is that Seche has introduced their new nail polish range at this very exhibition (at least that's what they've told me). I've tried to take as many pic I could given the pushy ladies hungry for the new colours :D you can find swatches of some of the shades at The Polish-Aholic.
And this is a quick snap of purchases for my friend..
And these are my purchases from SpaRitual and Misa:
Some China Glaze beauties...
Oooh and what's this? OPI Skyfall collection!!! I can't believe I've missed one shade so I have to get it somewhere else before I review this collection. All the polishes are beautiful but I'm a little bit disappointed with the glitter.
I've met there with three lovely girls, also bloggers - Sam from Honey Go-Lightly, Lola from Lola Star Hearts and Victoria from VIK Beauty. Thank you girls for meeting me, I've had a lovely time!
I've had a great time even though it was pouring rain my whole journey back. I've got some really nice polishes and met with lovely people. I already can't wait for the next exhibition in March!
