One of the things I love about living in London (vs, say, NY) is I pretty much stopped wearing make-up when I got here. Not that I wore much before, apart from a NY Sex and the City phase. So when I signed in at the desk for the Saatchi show the other day and was told 'you can get your nails done in the salon upstairs' I just assumed it was a comment on what a bad job I'd done on mine.
But what I stumbled upon was such a new, exciting, innovative Aladdin's Cave of make up conception, I haven't stopped thinking about it since. This new, LA born company, BELLA PIERRE, goes straight to my artist's soul. Dozens of little pots of natural mined mica pigments. Clear nail varnish, lip gloss, and other make up products. It mixes with water.
Get my drift? Got the aha moment?
Got my nails done - my first manicure since my sister's wedding - by a lovely girl, 2nd to top shot. Typing this with my lovely lovely nails - in haste as Mr. Dot is in the car now to go to the in-laws for the weekend and his parting words to me were 'if I come back in five minutes, swear to God, Jill, I will punch you.'
Have a lovely weekend all!
p.s. Didn't get a chance to find the link before we left but the girl with the glasses is my new friend Michelle, of Who is Bobb Parris (isn't that the BEST name for a blog?) We had met thru Jen, had a great day together a week or so ago, and then while I was getting my nails done, she appeared. Her red lips were done in Bella Pierre. I'll do a separate post about it/her soon.
