So much easier than I thought! I will definitely be trying this myself at home. I don’t know if I’d do full-on caviar on every nail, but accent nails are eye-catching and with a little patience I could probably do some fun French tips with microbeads…
After my manicure, I moved over to the makeup chair for a fun summer makeover! Pretty in the City has offered makeup applications for a while, but did you know about their GlamourEyes service? They tap in to the hottest makeup trends of the season and offer a 30 minute party-ready application for just $25. This service focuses on eye make-up, including false lashes (if you want them), lips, blush/bronzer and light concealer/blemish correction.
I chose the Summer Smokey Eye look with an emphasis on contouring to create that smouldering, sexy, intense gaze with a gentle winged eyeliner – think Adele. I loved the finished look topped off with coral pink lips and a dusting of glo-minerals pressed powder – makes me want to brush up on my cream eyeliner skills!
In addition to nails, makeup and their ever-popular lash extensions, Pretty in the City has expanded their product and service repertoire with even more beauty goodies…
- Lash Lift: Get the illusion of longer lashes with this new take on lash perming
- glo-minerals: Pharmaceutical grade makeup that’s actually good for you
- Pure + Simple: All natural, Canadian-made skincare products for sale (recommended for use with lash extensions)
Feeling pampered and pretty, I enjoyed mingling with some lovely beauty bloggers over champagne, cake pops and cupcakes! We buzzed about the fabulous products and services, the overwhelming temptation of baked goods and current events of course
Thank you Veronica and the team of beauties at Pretty in the City for hosting such a lovely event! I can’t wait to come back for my summer lashes – see you soon!
