Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Yesterday, Sunday 18th and Monday 19th of September, were days I had been looking forward to for nearly two months! The reason? It was the the Olympia Beauty event in Kensington Olympia, London.
...Anyways, more about that in a minute. First let me show you guys the manicure I did for the event. Seeing as I blog about Nails, I wanted to create a really special, completely blinged out Mani for the event.
This is what I came up with:
A close up-
For this Mani, first of all I used two coats of Orly Dazzle, then two coats of OPI Crown Me Already!, then glued a Swarovski crystal onto each nail with nail glue.
It came out pretty cool I think, I felt a bit like GaGa or something- this is one impractical manicure! Still, I got lots of compliments on them whilst going round all the stalls, so that was nice.
To start, can I just say, omg! The event was so much fun!
OPI was there, as was Nubar, China Glaze, Color Club, Essie, Jessica and more!
Here's a video I shot on my phone- as you can see, it was busy, busy busy!

Some pictures of the stalls:
To prove how busy the OPI stall was all the time, here's a picture of the queue:
...And who can blame people when OPI was being sold at trade price!? Discontinued Lacquers were discounted to £3.00!
I also had a lot of fun getting my greedy little polish loving mitts on some lemmings I've had for certain polishes from other brands:
Here's the Nubar Stall:
Discontinued Lacquers at Nubar were only £2.00!
The Color Club stall was brilliant. I was really excited to see this stall here because I've only ever seen Color Club available on the Internet. It was great to see all the shades in person...
And some general shots of the Exhibition Centre:
As you can guess, I was loving every minute of it!
My Top 5 new acquisitions from the Expo are (in no particular order):
* China Glaze Skyscraper
