North West Nails Meet

Hello lovelies,

Today’s post, as promised, is all about the North West Nails Meet I organised. The meet was last month (sorry I’m late posting this – the big move and lack of internet made posting impossible) and was held at The Sir Thomas Hotel in Liverpool city centre.

The venue itself is one of my favourites. Unlike some city centre hotels it has a really relaxed atmosphere and female-friendly bar. They host lots of lovely events from Chick Flick Thursdays to Tribute nights and I’d highly recommend them to anyone. It’s also a great central location to meet the girls for afternoon tea (right across from the Met Quarter).

North West Bloggers were invited to meet for drinks, cakes and a good old nail natter. I love connecting with other polish fans and it’s nice to have someone who I can chat to about holos, frankens and helmers without looks of confusion. I would love to organise another event in the future for all those who couldn’t make it this time around – keep your eyes peeled for more meet up news in the coming months.

The highlight for me was finally meeting Cecilia from Nailipedia. She was a real help in organising the event and such a lovely person too. Can’t wait to plan a trip to Sally’s soon!

We organised a nail art competition with prizes provided by Rio Nails – first prize, an awesome nail art starter kit, went to Cecilia for her stud-embellished black and white nails. Our loose theme was ‘Germany’ as they were the world cup winners.

In keeping with the competition theme I did my own nails in the colours of the German flag using a simple dry brush technique cross-hatched across the nail. This is the perfect mani for anyone wanting to punk up their nails in a hurry.

The biggest thanks to She Sells Sea Shells, Rio, Rainbow Connection, Guppy Graphics, and Tara’s Talons, for their support. I will be posting separately on these awesome brands and what we got in our goodie bags but I was really overwhelmed with their generosity.

I can’t wait to have myself a shopping spree using the vouchers from our goodie bags – what polish to get…?
