Celebrity nail professional Roxanne Campbell has developed a prominent profile in the industry over the last twelve years. Gaining the accolade of lead manicurist and nail artist for London and New York Fashion Week along the way. Roxanne launched her very own collection of luxury nail lacquers in August 2016 and now her gorgeous RC lacquers are donned by many a celebrity and regularly seen gracing the pages of Vogue, Elle, Tatler and Marie Claire magazines. Roxanne was named manicurist of the year in 2013 and is also a Nail Technology Educator. Safe to say… When it comes to nails, she knows a thing or two.
The RC range includes pretty summer brights, as well as sultry, seasonal shades.
Roxanne Campbell Nude tights – Get your American Tans out!
Literally identical in colour to those old favourites, with an understated warmth. Being neutral, Nude Tights is a very wearable shade, would work with all skin tones and sits well with any outfit choice. There’s nothing worse than getting dressed and realising your nail colour doesn’t quite work with your outfit. Just put on your Nude Tights and you’re good to go.
Snow Fight – Perfect for embracing the current white nail trend…
Or, whitening the tips for a classic French manicure. I’ve recently noticed the ombré French and this can also be achieved using Snow Fight. Take an old makeup sponge or blender and paint your pink and white lacquers directly onto the sponge, then press onto the nail bed and bounce it until you achieve the desired effect. Reapply, to build the colour.
Clean And Classy – Understated, French manicure perfection
Use one coat under, then two coats over your white tips. Alternatively, forget the white and apply two to three coats for that effortless, barely there look, but keeping it “Clean And Classy” at the same time.
Top Coat – As clear as day
Finally, everyone needs a classic top coat in their collection. Use as a finishing touch to smooth out any imperfections in the lacquer application, and set the polish in place with extra shine.
I love a nude nail so it’s no surprise I lean towards Nude Tights. However, I’m also partial to the clean look of a French manicure – especially on my toenails, so having a fresh pure white polish in my collection is invaluable.
Roxanne Campbell nail lacquers have a long-lasting formulation designed to ensure lasting nail perfection. Available in a range of colours influenced by fashion icons and seasonal trends to enhance, inspire and uplift.
I’m impressed by the formula of these lacquers, they apply smoothly and although the brush is a little thinner than others I’ve tried, the smooth formula allows for easy, streak-free application, leaving a fabulous and chic finish to the nail. Drying time is about average for a lacquer I would say, and in terms of longevity, a little longer than others I’ve tried.
Three tips for fabulous fingers
1. Always use a base coat, not only will it protect nails from staining but it gives the lacquer/polish something to adhere to – you may get a couple more days wear.
2. NEVER shake your bottle. This creates tiny pockets of air causing a bubbly application. instead, simply roll the bottle back and forth between your palms for a minute.
3. Dunk your newly painted nails in ice-cold water to speed up drying time. If you’re tempted to use your hairdryer, keep it on a cooler setting.
Made in the UK, cruelty-free and formulated without the use of formaldehyde, toluene and camphor.
