NEW SPRING COLLECTION

Who’s Blushing Now? Get ready for Spring with the stunning new collection from ORLY inspired by beauty. Katy Holding looks at how cosmetics have helped shape ORLY’s latest colour collection. ORLY’s Year of Beauty embraces everything that is beautiful about the female form. From the hair to the toes and everything in between, ORLY’s ‘Year of Beauty’ colour collection draws inspiration from cosmetics using colours and textures that wouldn’t look out of place in your make up bag. Think of your early make up memories... it may be haphazardly applying blusher to a girl’s world, watching your mum apply mascara in front of the mirror or the first time you held the holy grail – the lipstick – in your sticky hands trying ever so hard to keep within the lines. Past or present, make up continues to be a huge part of our lives so it’s no surprise that the cosmetics industry is booming. And whilst lipstick has been heralded as the all-time recession proof purchase, the crown has now been bestowed upon nail polish. Why? It’s an affordable way of dipping into a trend but above all else, it’s a confidence boost that brings about a smile (and hopefully a compliment or two). Blusher is the inspiration behind ORLY’s latest colour collection, aptly named Blush. And the best bit? Blusher is BACK for S/S 14. Often undervalued, blusher has the power to warm the complexion and tone the face. ORLY’s Blush collection, ready for spring, has 6 shades of peach, pink and brown tones in matte, shimmer and glitter finishes which like blusher will complement all skintones. Find your perfect Blush.

MAC Mineralise Blush in Gentle £20 maccosmetics.co.uk

HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT BLUSH

by Nickie THeobald ORLY Area Manager

Former MAC Make-up Artist, Nickie Theobald takes you through her fail safe tips for perfect blush application. just my type Select your shade; try to select a blusher that reflects your colour when you naturally blush. I love the mineralize blush from MAC as it’s not too heavy on the skin. Try Gentle or Warm Soul.

Step 1

perfect match If you buy an inexpensive brush, you’ll get below-par results. Hate to say it but it’s true, so invest now for a perfect finish. Try MAC’s 168 Large Angled Contour Brush for expert application.

Step 2

too much of a good thing Lightly sweep a mediumsized fluffy brush through your blush palette and then tap it to remove any excess.

Step 3

sweeping statement Apply the blush to the centre of your cheeks, sweep the colour up and along your cheekbones. Make strokes with the brush from your cheeks (towards your nose) to the side of your face (towards your ears) and voilà!

The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you!

Floating French AS SEEN AT: JEAN-PIERRE BRAGANZA, SISTER BY SIBLING, MARIOS SCHWAB

The original French Manicure gets a facelift for S/S 14. Once a natural base and a bright white tip, the latest reincarnation of the French Manicure mixes flesh toned basecoats and a contrasting smile line repositioned down the side of the nail plate. For a striking look recreate ORLY’s Floating French by Jenni Draper at Jean Pierre Braganza, using Naked Canvas as a base colour and a sweep of Instant Artist Jet Black for a sideways smile line.

STEP BY STEP

Recreate the Floating French Jenni Draper (meet her on p. 12) shows you how you can create this high fashion take on the French Manicure. As seen at LFW S/S 14. STEP 1 Prep the nail by applying ORLY Primetime to create a perfect canvas. Next, apply a coat of ORLY Bonder as a basecoat. Apply a layer of Naked Canvas (delicate nude from the Blush collection). Allow to dry and then paint another layer if required.

STEP 2 Using Instant Artist in Jet Black, create a sideways smile line starting at the cuticle end of the nail around 1/3 of the way (left to right). Continue the line across to the right hand side of the base, following the natural shape of the cuticle and then up the side wall of the nail. If you turn your hand to the side, it should look like a crescent shape.

STEP 3 Finish with a layer of ORLY Polishield for long-lasting, chip-free shine. Apply Flash Dry Drops to speed up the dry time.

TIPS FROM THE TOP

Call the Nail Doctor!

EXPERT TIP The key to strong nails starts at the root. Massage cuticle oil into your nails every night to speed up nail growth. I recommend ORLY Argan Oil Cuticle Drops as it absorbs beautifully and gives off a delicious aroma.

We all have a flaky, breaky nail day from time to time – there’s no shame in it, simply call the nail doctor. ORLY’s in-house expert Laura Maddock answers your questions to assist you in your pursuit of beautiful nails. Tweet us your nail problems @ORLYBeautyUK #naildoctor

Say goodbye to peeling!

Nurture and they will grow!

Q. I love all the nail polish trends but my nails peel and are so thin I can’t wear polish without it chipping. How can I get my nails stronger? Emma, London

Q: I have recently had my acrylic nails removed but I miss the length! How can I get my natural nails strong and long? Caroline, Essex

Q: I’m really careful with my nails but they are constantly snapping and breaking at the edges. What can I do to stop this? Katy, Glasgow

A: If you have weak peeling nails the best thing to do is make them stronger. We need a perfect foundation for healthy nails – a combination of strength and flexibility. As yours need strength, I prescribe Nail Defense to bond the layers of the nails together and fortify them. Use as a basecoat and add 2-3 coats of your fave ORLY colour and finish with another layer of Nail Defense. Voila – your nails will look great whilst Nail Defense gets to work. L x

A: Caroline, we have the perfect solution. ORLY Nailtrition has been specially formulated for damaged nails that have had exposure to acrylic or gel nails. This 14 day treatment delivers amazing results in a short time. Containing collagen, wheat protein, keratin and bamboo extract, this nail saviour will combat peeling and pitted nails. Plus, its pinky hue will cover any white spots or dry patches on the nail. Your nails will look healthy whilst the formula does the rest. L x

A: Katy you are not alone as millions of people have nails like yours. Think yourself lucky that your nails are strong (if a little brittle). The answer is flexibility. You need a formula that maintains the strength already in your nails but makes them supple so rather than break, they will bend. ORLY Tough Cookie contains african okoumé extract to help your nails become less brittle and more supple so give it a go. L x
