Blush Board: Party Time

It’s been a while since I’ve put together a Blush Board, so I thought I’d put all of my pinning to good use for a party-centric piece. There’s lots more to come on Slappshop.com, but in the meantime, here’s a little inspiration to keep you going! Advertisements

Get the Look – Ballerina Style

What woman hasn’t felt the pull of ballet at some stage in her life? The music, the stage, the exquisite combination of femininity and strength; all pulled together with pretty French names, blush pinks and feathery layers of tulle. I first watched Swan Lake on Easter Sunday when I was five or six. High on […]

Get the Look- Naked Nails

Nail art is finally a thing of the past. No longer do we care whether our fingers are flowers, flags or fruit; For the time being at least, we have better things to do.  What started as a statement soon became a phenomenon; but with every craze, there’s the counter phase. There’s the moment when we realise actually […]

Blush loves… Spring nails from Chanel

  Around about early Feb, my mind begins to wander towards Spring and Summer planning. Perhaps it’s the sight of sunshine in spite of the icy wind, or perhaps post Christmas it’s the next best thing to look forward to. Whatever it may be, there’s no better way to subtly pledge your allegiance to the […]

Sunday Selection- Eve Snow BB Base coat

A base coat is always crucial if you want chip-free nails that last the week. Currently top of my list is Eve Snow’s BB Base coat, a creamy formula enriched with Argan oil and Vitamin E. Where this product excels is it primes nails, neutralising any discolouration, chips or grooves and like a great primer, […]

Blush Loves…Christmas Gifts

It’s that time of year and Christmas is upon us. Many of he big brands have relinquished gift-sets for advent calendars this year. And whilst I love the idea of getting a new Jo Malone fragrance every day, it’s pretty risky business; much like buying a box of chocolates, I never want the nut and at […]

Sunday Selection – Topshop’s Metallic Nails

When it comes to winter nails nothing beats a classic red, but there are only so many shades of rouge you can play with before boredom hits. Metallic nails are nothing new, but admittedly I was a little late to the game, mainly as I had no idea where to start. Thankfully Topshop have come to […]

Whether you’re in favour of trashy golds, childish glitter, or modern metallics in mixed hues, everyone from Nars to Revlon have offered up options.  So whether […]

Winter Revival – White Nails

White nails were a huge trend last summer, but for some reason I wasn’t feeling it- I’m more of a tropical nail girl in summer. They were seen on everyone from Rihanna to Miley Cyrus, they graced red carpets, campaigns and street style blogs.  It seemed the trend had disappeared along with summer’s warmth, until […]
