Beauty: Ilford Nail-ed It!

Last weekend I was invited to what was purported to be the UK's first Nail Art Festival at London's Ilford Exchange Shopping Centre. 

It sounded fun so I attended.

There were talks by nail artists about this season’s hottest nail art trends, Lynda Louise Burrell from Nail Girls showed her crowd how to do the basics and the bold art.

Ellen Lewis, the Marketing Director at Exchange Ilford said: The Nail Art Festival was a great success for its first year with over 5,000 visitors from across the Capital heading to Exchange, Ilford for a celebration of one of the biggest fashion and beauty trends of 2013. We’re already in talks to as to how we can make the festival bigger and better next year..." 

The Nail Girls were my manicurists* for the day...
I chose a subtle pink base colour and (hue of the season) mint colour block. What do you think...?
