Hello lovelies,

 

Today's post is very special! Not only I have re-done my Pink Pastel Galaxy Nails and done a new video tutorial but I've also done this in collaboration with The Body Shop! One March Thursday morning I got into my car and three hours later I was in The Body Shop HQ in Littlehampton in the south of England. It was very charming everywhere around and the HQ building was built in the Japanese style. I thought that was very cool! Unfortunately as I was in a rush to get in I didn't take a picture and when we finished it was starting to get darker.

 

I've taken pictures of the nails the next day at home so you'll get a bit more than just a video tutorial ;) All products I'll be using are from The Body Shop, including their Colour Crush nail polish range:

For this look I've used The Body Shop:


Top and Base Coat

Frosting Fancy

Oh Petal

Cupid Pink

Crimson Kiss

Professional Make-Up Sponge

Lipstick & Concealer Brush

Sweet Almond Oil Nail Varnish Remover

Nail Art Pen (Dotting Tool)

 

All of these are available at www.thebodyshop.co.uk and at The Body Shop in your country.

 

And now the promised video tutorial! I am very shy in front of the camera and it took me a while to gather my courage so I hope you'll enjoy it!

 

 

 

 

I also want to share with you my experience at The Body Shop HQ. To me it looked like such a cool place to work! After checking myself at the reception desk I was seated in a circular waiting area with comfy sofas, soft plush rugs and a view to a small inside garden. Shortly after I was greeted by lovely Antonia who you might know as @nailsandpolkadots on IG. And then it was straight to work in a small office. I passed two walls covered in Body Shop products and an inside store that was being built. The will have a replica of a store in their office!!! How awesome is that?!

 

The videographer was already waiting and doing last preparations and after a short brief we began to film. I did two nail designs in total so there will be another video in the future!

 

In the middle of the working day we were treated to some lunch in their retro American-style diner! Yes you heard right - they also have an American-style diner WITH JUKEBOX! Of course I snapped few pics for you as well:

At the end of a long day (with hours of driving home still ahead) Antonia treated me with a generous goody bag of The Body Shop products. By now I've already tried some of the products and some are worth mentioning:

 

  • Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil - a great alternative to my night cream combining serum an oil. My dry skin loves this product and for £13 (28ml) it costs much less than high-end serums. Also I adore the limited edition Union Jack packaging. I already own few products from the Vitamin E range and love and use them all.
  • Strawberry Body Sorbet - this is very unusual product to me but it's really good, especially for hot months. It's so light and cooling and it absorbs very fast, leaving silky smooth and not at all sticky skin. The best thing about is the smell though - so yummy!
  • Wonderblur - you'll probably love this product if you don't want to wear makeup but still want to have a nice skin - it does the same thing as Clarins Lisse Minute and it feels the same as well. It feels silky smooth and smoothes out lines and pores in your skin. I wore it under makeup like a primer as well but for this it needs to be evenly spread everywhere otherwise you might get patching. Nonetheless it costs third of the price of the Clarins product so thumbs up from me!

 

So these are just some of my picks and the experience from The Body Shop HQ and of course the nails! I truly hope you've enjoyed the video and the post, don't forget to share, give it a like and follow Lucy's Stash and The Body Shop on YouTube ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

This is very exciting, I have been doing manicures at the London Fashion Week with The Body Shop! I've put together a report of what was going on and some manicures I've done so I hope you'll like it! I haven't had my digital camera with me so all pictures were taken with my mobile phone.

My day started quite early and with a train journey to London. I was doing my hair on the train so I got some weird stares as always :D Then I was heading to Freemason's Hall in Covent Garden where the Fashion Scout section and The Body Shop Nail Bar was located. People from The Body Shop have created an amazing nail bar that featured my own nail designs and photos. Needless to say I loved it and I was so proud to see my work out there!

 

I was also lucky to work with the talented Metta from Nails by Mets on Friday & Saturday, check her out (the manicures she did are on her Instagram).

 

I was working with The Body Shop Colour Crush nail polish range and their other products and tools so every single nail colour you'll see is from The Body Shop. We were doing express manicures that were basically file & polish so no cuticle work and all pictures are pre-cuticle oil as well ;)

As you can see my phone doesn't do great job with photos so please excuse the lower quality. Bu man, so many nails! I did even more but I didn't include all those one-colour manicures I did.

 

There was always somebody waiting in a queue to have their nails done so at times I felt like I should rush so to do as many people as possible I've been doing nail art mostly as an accent nail. Nevertheless I still very much enjoyed it and I hope I'll be able to do events like these again in the future.

 

There was also friendly and talented fashion & beauty photographer Andrew R. Moore (http://www.andrewrmoore.com/) occasionally taking nail bar and nail pictures and he was kind enough to allow me to share some of the pictures with you. This is the nail bar and nails through his eyes (and lens ;)...

How different are Andrew's pictures from my bad phone ones!? It was nice to have a second pair of eyes and some interesting photos so thank you, Andrew.

 

The day always ended with yet another train journey home but I would do it again! PLUS I finally got to meet the lovely Antonia who works for The Body Shop but she's also the face behind @nailsandpolkadots! Big thanks to The Body Shop for putting it all together and for having me on board! everyone was so kind and lovely despite the pressure and busy environment :)

 

So that was my experience of London Fashion Week - what was yours? And which nails are your favourite?

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
