Nic and Sam in full-on Blue Steel mode
In town for their Real Techniques roadshow appearance at Boots in Jervis on Friday, Nic and Sam Chapman, aka Pixiwoo, also managed to squeeze in some press appointments too. Up since 5am, there was no sign of tiredness from this pair of beauty vlogging powerhouses, who were happy to submit to my nosy questions about what they were wearing on their persons.
So, let’s take a look, kicking off with Sam’s bits ‘n’ bobs.
“I don’t have much on and normally I’m the jewellery freak,” Sam said, as she showed me this sparkler, a self-gift, and her skull ring, which she bought from The Great Frog London. “It’s just off Carnaby street, and there’s one in New York too.” Browse the site here.
“My boyfriend bought me this leaf necklace,” she grinned.
Next up, Nic, who was rather more adorned.
Yup, they be loombands, which fans have been giving her on the tour. “Some of them were given to me in Manchester,” she said. She’s also got some Great Frog London rings on, which seems to be a firm fave with the pair.
A closer look at her rings.
On her left, she’s got her engagement and wedding ring. Is that an eternity ring? Nope: “I wanted two to match, so I just said, I don’t want one ring, it’ll look weird, so I got two hand made,” she dished. Proper order that lass.
Earrings by Vivienne Westwood – “Everyone always admires these, and you can’t get them anymore” – rounded out her jewellery.
And then I looked at her feet.
Diane Von Furstenberg, BBZ. “Seriously, these are the most comfortable shoes ever,” Nic said.
That’s yer lot, and a brand new jewellery brand to investigate too. Result.
Nic’s Picks, a set of 5 sleek, slim metal-handled brushes, with three kit exclusives, launches on October 1st at Boots. Price TBC.
