Last month Katie and I were lucky enough to be invited to the Vintage Cosmetic Company’s first birthday party, held at London’s swanky pants Soho Sanctum hotel. Now, I will admit, I had only ever heard of The Vintage Cosmetic Company in passing, but can admit they put on a mighty fine soiree and managed to convert me to a devotee. I discovered at the party that the beauty label originated from Chelmsford in Essex, just down the road from moi. Apparently it IS a small world, after all.
After being greeted by jealously inducing BABES in vintage style swimwear, we were treated to a nail wrap manicure by the lady who actually owns Nail Rock. That’s right, owns it. Talk about women doing it for themselves. This manicure, consisting of stick-on nail art, took only around 5 minutes for her to obviously expertly apply (maybe add half an hour if its your first try) and lasted realistically around 5 days. definitely worth it for special occasions, seeing as I couldn’t take my eyes of the amazing patterns for days!
We also partied with our gorgeous friend Lauren, from The Beauty Habit (below, right) and left feeling somewhat more glamorous and vintage-y. We were lucky enough to come away with some amazing goodie bags too, and am currently in the process of testing the products included, so watch out for another Vintage Cosmetic Company product review very soon.
