Only Fingers and Toes

An invite hits your inbox inviting you come along and make your own manicure, what do you reply? Yes of course. So Off I went into central London to a fabulous event to see what OFAT which stands for Only Fingers and Toes was all about- how fab!

When I arrived, I was handed some champagne and taken to a nail polish mixing station - OMG heaven! I was then asked to choose a nail polish, if I wanted too, I could have more than one, mix two together or whatever I wanted to do and then if I am feeling really brave choose something glittery to accompany it. Once that had been done and trust with me over 60 different shades it was quite a hard decision, I decided to do things a little bit differently and choose a glitter first and a polish to match! Once the task had been completed, I handed my choices over for them to be mixed up in a science style petri dish and then off I went to a manicurist who applied it professionally for me!

So I opted for a dark black shade called Luxe Noir and then had glitter added to it.  The glitter was shades of red, gold and black which when added to my nails and I think it looked amazing, better still, it lasted for over a week before chipping, which to me is amazing!

I had a great time at this event, it was amazing to see a brand with so many different shades, have a chance to chat to the owner and see at first hand all of the amazing products in one place, not to mention, the mani red carpet, you can see my first appearance below

I am really grateful that I was invited to this event, it was such good fun and everyone was so lovely.  Inside the goody bag which we got to take home, was a trio of polishes which could be found inside this amazing packaging, who wouldn't want their nail polishes presented in this way?

These three gorgeous shades from left to right are called: 

Tuberose - Tuberose is a Mexican plant with heavily scented waxy flowers and was once cultivated for flavouring chocolate. This Only Fingers And Toes beautiful lilac hue has soft blue undertones with an undulating shimmer. From the Lustre Collecton, Tuberose is a true two coat polish.

Delish - From the Lustre Collection, this Only Fingers And Toes bubblegum pink shimmer has fabulous silver undertones and is reminiscent of childhood sweeties. Delish is both youthful and mature with a hint of cheek and is a true two coat polish. 

Bond - Inspired by the gorgeous pastel gowns of early Bond film vixens, this delicious lavender by Only Fingers And Toes is one of the shining stars of the Vivid Collection. This beautiful hue is a velvety two coat polish.
