Essie

Hello, you gorgeous lot…
Anyone who follows me on Instagram will know that I take my nails very seriously. Over two years ago, I made a new year promise that I would have regular manicures which I have stuck to religiously trying out different colours every two weeks and becoming somewhat obsessed with making sure my nails look tip top at all times. So you can imagine my excitement when literally my dream job came in.. Working with Essie and Pop Sugar to create a short film in the day of my life as a stylist to celebrate the launch of the new range Essie Gel Couture. You can see me chatting below all about colour, confidence and dressing with confidence on Pop Sugar Fashion.
The film is directed by the fab duo that are Sally and Sarah from the mighty Blag Magazine who’s previous encounters include Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy.. Eek no pressure there then!!!! They were the nicest chicks ever and so patient and lovely, really making it a joy to work with them. Such zeitgeists and properly top notch at the same time, so rare in my industry – not an ego insight with these two.

I had my nails done for the shoot by the super talented Kate Cutler of Bang Bang Nails. She does everyones paws from the likes of Gigi Hadid and Missy Elliott to Kim Kardashian. Kate decided on a bright red pillar box red for me to wear which I loved and she taught me that the best thing about this new super cool Essie Gel Couture range is that it is easily applied with just two coats, no need for a base coat. You just use a luxurious top coat to finish and your off with seriously strong nails, long lasting colour and a fab colour to boot.
We shot all around my neighbourhood in Notting Hill and I had so much fun. Working with a fantastic crew, chatting on camera about my passion, wearing some seriously cool nail polish and bumping into old friends along the way.
Here is some behind the scenes shots of the day… Hope you enjoy the film. #gelcouture #essielove
