Spa London | Essie Launch Event

Hey there,

A couple weeks ago, (well actually a month) the 19th April to be exact, I attended a beauty blogger brunch at the Spa London in Kensington, to celebrate the launch of Essie gel nails and Spa Londons collab. Anything that involves brunch I'm a fan of, especially when it means socialising with fellow bloggers and getting my nails done... The perfect morning right?

I made a massive mistake skipping out on the spa, as soon as I arrived and was handed a robe and slippers for the day, I knew not having a bikini at hand was a fail. On my next visit, a bikini will be at the top of my list, and an empty diary for the day, (Just peace and relaxation).

Almost straight away I was at the nail station being prepped for my Essie gel manicure, with champagne in hand. I haven't actually ever tried Essie polishes, (I know, bad beauty blogger). But have always admired their range of colourful shades, (Especially those spring pastels) and now that they've launched a gel version I know I will be hooked. The colours are as beautiful as their polishes, which is refreshing to see from a gel collection. I opted for 'on a silver spoon' as a nude grey is my favourite.

With a freshly done manicure, I had my granola before heading back to my London flat, with a gutted realisation of my stupidity in leaving the bikini at home. The gels lasted just over a week, and they'd probably have lasted longer if I wasn't the sort of person that picked at a nail, at the first sign of chipping. Overall I'm impressed by the Essie gel range, and Spa Londons hospitality and facilities, I will definitely be heading back, (with my bikini of course) and indulging in some more luxury treatments.

Lots of love,
