Last night Grazia team beauty nipped out of the office a wee bit early and made a mad dash down to Café Royal in central London where we were expected for tea with nail experts Sophie Robson and Adam Slee. Oh and only Kate Moss too!
The occasion? The launch of the 12 delicious new Rimmel and Kate Moss Salon Pro Nail Polishes named after Kate’s favourite music types no less. Fabulous or what?
Arriving in black snakeskin Louboutins and sporting a glossy, dark-green mani from the new range, a very chatty Kate was happy to divulge all her best kept nail secrets and even pose for a picture or three. *Sigh.*
Get a load of her amazing sound bites below:
On speedy manicures: “I'm a girl on the go, I don't have time to paint a base coat, polish and top coat. I have my nails changed practically every day for work, so when I do them myself I want to do it quickly.”
On her favourite polish form the collection: “I'm very classic, I like a nice beige nude or a dark colour like deep red or dark green.”
On nail art: “I'm not into nail art but my daughter loves it.
On nail shaping: “My dream nail shape would be a long almond, but I have to keep mine short and round for work. I've heard square nails are coming back, but I'm fighting it!”
On at home manis: “I'm a pro at painting my own nails, I've learnt from the best and have picked up some good tips along the way. The most important part of a polish for me is the brush. It has to give me enough polish in one swipe or it becomes streaky. That's why I love the brush so much on this one. And I don't have to paint it more than once which is ideal.”
On matching nails to your lippie: “I'd never match my nails to lipstick, or have a matching mani-pedi. I tend to keep my toes nude most of the time unless I've got a tanned foot and then I'll do a bright coral. I love a tan, think all girls do...”
We’ll race you to the checkout...
