I thought I would share a sneak peak at the new products which are due to be released by Marc Jacobs – aren’t they divine?! I love the curved packaging and muted colour palette. These are not going to be easy to find once they are released – I can feel the anticipation already!

It’s not too often that I come across a product which is completely different to anything else in my sizeable beauty stash, but with their Light Legs Mousse, Kiko have managed to create something pretty unique!

10 Over 10 Salon – Tribeca

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to post my review of 10 Over 10 salon which I visited when I was most recently in New York.

I had been aching to head down to Tribeca and try the salon for ever! It’s a perennial favourite of the who’s who of the fashion industry, and I had heard only good things about the place. Located between Duane and Reade Street, you have to look out for a cute little neon sign, and then head up the stairs. Even though I didn’t have an appointment, I was accommodated for a mani pedi, and I got to work choosing my colours, whilst sipping on green tea.

The sheer choice of colours available was beyond impressive. As well as having every Essie shade I could think of, as well as many, many more, I could choose from Chanel, Nars and 10 Over 10 own brand polishes – I was in heaven. I’m so picky when it comes to polish, and I really appreciated not having to tote my own along with me. I went for Chanel Fracas for hands and toes, and looked forward to the treatment.

When it was time for my pedi, I got shown to a comfy little chair and invited to relax whilst my technician got to work. The view is incredible – as warm light shone in I had the perfect people-watching spot for the entire duration. It was bliss. My feet were silky smooth afterwards, and I was super impressed with techniques used. This might sound a little odd, but the shape which my nails were filed into were perfect.

Following my pedi, I was shown to the manicure bar, where my fingers were suitably pampered – the service was blissful, and the technician didn’t blink an eye when I asked for an extra dose of acetone before polishing since my nails chip ridiculously easy. Unlike regular nail salons, there is no UV light which dries the polish, instead 10 Over 10 has developed their own special oil which dries polish quickly without bubbling or any other negative consequences. The mani lasted for around 4 days on me (a marathon by all accounts) and the pedi a week, and the whole experience was blissful. The salon is such a perfect little hideaway if city life is getting too much!
