Chanel at Covent Garden 's Pop up Store, Express Manicure experience

11:37 AM claire 0 Comments

In the Summer of 2012 I went to London for a quick week getaway. Before I left I went to Time Out and found out that there was a Chanel Pop up store in Covent Garden!!!

Being a crazy fan, I made sure I stopped by. Make sure you book an appointment first because they are REALLY busy and fully booked most of the time!!

There are a few services you could try, but I was tempted by the express manicure service. Pay £25 for an express manicure (nail shape and paint) that's fully redeemable in Chanel make-up products, after! If I remember correctly there was a makeover service as well.


Oh it was pampering, alright. I was treated to a light hand massage with Coco Chanel's Mademoiselle Fresh Body Cream, which is a heavenly scent, followed by a spritz of Parfum on my hands, which lasted the entire day. I spent the rest of the day randomly smelling my hands I kid you not!!

Very tempted to get the scent and the body cream now.


Then came the buffing and shine :*) 


Super happy face. It was time for me to pick my colours!! Check out the whole rack of colours next to me. Being spoilt for choice was an understatement.

Was tempted to pick this bright red colour but decided not to. Still can pose with the bottle anyway.




Decided to try out a few colours before finally deciding on one!! Absolutely LOVE the shade!!


LE VERNIS

INFIDÈLE

 

 I also painted my fourth finger in a different shade but I can't remember which shade it was <_ br="br">


It looks like I'm concentrating in this picture instead haha.




After the express manicure was over, I was convinced to try on (and eventually buy), Chanel's Winter 12's limited edition lipstick colour- L'infidele, which is now sold out. It was a perfect match to my nails and I love how it brightened my face and gave me this rosy glow which you can see for yourself below!


 
 Whenever I apply the lipstick I feel empowered and immediately more confident! The colour glides on easily, and the Hydratendre complex softens your lips for a plumper, healthier look! Plus, there's an awesome smell which I'm quite addicted to.

 
Buying from the Chanel Pop up store was great as I had free samples and a 'Chanel at Covent Garden' tag which could be used as a necklace or a keychain or anything you like! 

 
No regrets, would definitely do it again on my next trip to London (if it's still there).

Claire.
