Got a little misty eyed when I feasted my eyes on celebrity manicurist, Andrea Fulerton’s fabulous new nail line. Missing the between-takes chat you see. And the magic she wielded with her file and polish brush on the photo shoots did together was quite something else. Andrea makes doing nails look terribly easy – even when a model’s nails are less than up to scratch (always get a hand model and if she’s sick, have back-up).
Andrea has polished the nails of more A-listers than is decent. So she knows who has good nails. Take Penelope Cruz – hands and nails from heaven. Natural then that she should call each of her 24 nail polishes after her pet A-listers. There’s a sugar pinkCarrie, a deep purple Kate (Moss?) a choc-brown Penelope and so on.
I’m intrigued by her Trio Colour Layering System (£7.99) – you get two polishes, one at either end of a nail polish pen. Paint one colour on top of the other and you have a third. Fun. My favourite is probably Gold Finger – deep, dusty gold + opalescent white = a soft, smoky silver-grey.
