If you haven’t been able to tell, OPI is one of my favourite nail polish brands, the consistency, colour and smoothness of the brush are several reasons why – oh I could write an essay about why I love OPI (but don’t worry I won’t, I promise). Oh and have you seen the names, lol they get me every time, they’re just so clever, and well thoughout

Anyway, back to the launch: early Thursday morning I headed down to the Corinthia Hotel to see their A/W 12 Collection. Every year, OPI releases a collection for a country, and this year it’s Deuschland, Germany. 

Do you see what I mean about the names, oh OPI I love thee 
This colour “Schnapps Out Of It” caught my eye, and I immediately had to have it on my nails, do you like?

The Nail Tech put this on my nails, and my nails were dry instantly! I want this now. I’m sure you know I’m addicted to finding fast drying top coats, as it makes my nail experience so much more pleasurable, and my nails long lasting.
 I trotted down to the Haymarket Hotel for the Revlon Nail Bar where they were celebrating 80 years, but since my nails had been painted already, I just chilled with the girls and had a bite to eat. I loved their Diner themed event. 

Ok I know you’re going to tell me it’s a waste that I got my nails painted at the OPI Launch…because I had a manicure and pedicure booked at the Chelsea Day Spa. Don’t judge me, I seriously fell in love with that colour, and it made me happy that I had it on for a few hours.

The treatment I opted for was the New York Manicure and Pedicure. It’s normally £65 but they’ve got an offer on till September where its £35. The people at The Chelsea Day Spa are nice and personable. Not that I went there for the beverages, but they do have a nice variety, so I indulged in a nice hot cup of peppermint tea. 

The brand of nail polish they use is Jessica, which I hadn’t really tried before, as I am so used to using OPI. I wouldn’t say I’m a convert, but I’ll give this brand a try, as they do have some pretty colours. 

Since my feet had been away wrapped up during the Autumn/Winter seasons, I thought the manicurist had her work cut out for her. Nonetheless, she managed to work her magic and my hands and feet looked good as new.

I love the pearlescent finish, and there were some great summer colours too – well hello open toe shoes!
The colour on my hands is Rolling Rose (713) and  my toes are Hotter than Hibiscus (714).

Overall, I would recommend this New York Mani and Pedi. If you live or work in the Chelsea area, this is a great lunch time treat. After my mani and pedi I headed to the New look Press Day, but I’ll tell you about it in the next post.
