I do love an orange nail in the summer. Of course it really should be with a tan, but I haven’t had time to sheep dip myself recently, nor have I had time to get my ragged nails seen to either but, thanks to the lovely Nails Inc girls who were stationed in the Harvey Nichols Beauty SOS tent, had my nails done at the Derby on Friday.
I chose Portobello, one of Nails Inc’s neon shades. I’m incredibly impressed with its durability: so far I’ve been to Columbia Road flower market, hefted pots of plants, re-potted my window boxes, lugged from New Covent Garden, stripped and prepped armfuls of flowers for an event I am hosting on Thursday and there isn’t a single chip so far.
In fact, if it wasn’t for the earth which seems to be indelibly etched into my fingernail beds, you could almost believe my nails to be fresh out of the beauty parlour.
