Congratulations to Amanda Gibson Walmsley, winner of the L’Oreal/Carelle Best Actress Compact!
As I mentioned, my friend Katherine has been in town the past week. This weekend was incredibly crazy with all the Oscars events, so I had Katherine attend the L’Oreal suite for me and do a write up. She says:
After a night of torrential downpour, I set off to the L’Oreal Beauty Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel. Nadine informed me I’d be getting a manicure, which I thought was hilarious as I’d broken off all the nails on my left hand and wasn’t sure they’d be able to work with my manicure disaster.
I walked into the suite and was greeted by the lovely L’Oreal publicist Danielle, who told me a bit more about their new lines and their celebrity spokespeople (including Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani). We sat down for the manicure, but to be honest, I had such a fun time in the suite–which was full of L’Oreal products in giant glass jars, and took place upstairs in a beautiful suite at the Four Seasons–that I barely noticed the manicure itself until I saw the final results!
My nails looked glossy and gorgeous, and you never would have known that just half an hour previously, I’d been sporting raggedy claws. The color, Now You See Me, is a deep, elegant plum (almost bordering on the red) and I can’t stop staring at my nails now.
All in all, a wonderful way to spend the afternoon! Tomorrow, I go back to London–and while I’m sad to leave LA, it’s been such a busy 7 days that I’m looking forward to a bit of peace and quiet. Thank you Nadine (and L’Oreal!) for an excellent experience…and see you again soon, LA!
