Illamasqua Dark Angel film...

You may remember a couple being brutally attacked by a group of youths in 2007 because of their alternative style. Illamasqua have created a film to remember Sophie Lancaster, the girl who died that day.

It's so important to express your individuality whether via clothes or otherwise, Illamasqua create make up that allows you to stand out from the crowd so it is only right that they would support a charity that promotes self expression such as the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

Their aim is to fundraise for this charity by selling the Sophie pencil and bracelet, so check them out

Here's my favourite from this week, the post is entitled For Fuck's Sake...i'm thinking more ffs why dont I look like that?

Nailed it...

I'll be the first to say that generally, I have gross nails, gross in the way that the varnish is either chipped, or the nails are stained from lashings of Chanel varnish which has been left on for too long.

When an invite went round for a mani with Marian Newman,who is a world renowned nail artist...if you dont believe me check out the below biog, I simply could not turn it down.

Her session work is a major part of Marian’s life, having become the name that famous photographer Nick Knight calls upon to do his Dior, Lancome and Vogue shoots. Working closely with Sam McKnight, Val Garland and many others, Marian now commands an unrivalled position in her industry and is one of the few top nail practitioners whose work is seen in glossy magazines around the world virtually every week. She has worked with most of the legendary photographers, including Mario Testino, David Bailey and Patrick Demarchelier.

Some career highlights in this field are over 50 British Vogue covers to her name (plus many 100’s covers and editorial stories) and 10 years of working on every advertising campaign for Christian Dior. More recently, she created the nails on all the ‘Interlude’ films for Lady Gaga’s Monster Tour.

I went for Wildfire Shellac nails, which to you and me is red nail varnish that with the aid of Shellac technology remains on your nails for 2-3 weeks. Shellac is half nail varnish / half gel and unlike BioGel doesn't damage your nails underneath.

My friend Sam also had Minx nails - in fact she had a prototype design which is unable as yet.

Thanks Marian! My nail varnish remains unchipped for a 2nd day, its a miracle
