All were invited to explore our spring-summer ready collection — TGB Road Trip — and immerse themselves in adventure with personalised manis alongside the perfect road trip snacks (of course!). Keen to find out all the juicy details? Read on... but first, don't miss a tour of our Road Trip event space! See our manicure stations in all their glory and drink in our tempting shade bar in our reel!
Adventure this way
Time to check in! Our flurry of guests was greeted by team TGB and invited to enjoy classic road trip snacks and received their appointment postcards ahead of their Road Trip mani.
Our guests were then immersed into the explosion of colour that is TGB Road Trip. Our SS23 Shade Bar showcased every colour from this fun-loving collection, the perfect inspiration for our guests to choose their hues.
Our TGB colour-matched sister brand — Peacci — had to have its own moment in the sun too. A gorgeous array of Peacci polishes were on display to swatch in all their highly pigmented glory. These professional quality bottles make the perfect addition to our salon along with Peacci Skin's extensive offerings. Shown alongside our Peacci polishes were complementary The GelBottle shades so our guests could visualise the endless possibilities to be had with this feel-good collection.
Looking for a mani at home? Shop our range of salon-matched nail polish Peacci shades. Might we suggest the bubble gum pink of Barbie and Hubba Bubba's peachy coral tones as your starting points to stay on-trend this season?
Now to journey into the consultation lounge - an opportunity for guests to chat to the team, enjoy a drink and take a look at the Road Trip Lookbook. You can still receive this (our first-ever Lookbook!) for free when you shop the full 20ml collection.
There was even more to explore with swatches of nail art designs using TGB Road Trip for all the nail inspo. If you're in need of some 'cool girl' inspiration, look no further than our Spotlight on: Headlights and Cool Girl Combos blog posts.
Ready, sets, go!
To the mani stations! Hosted by leading professional nail artists, guests were able to sit down with our expert nail techs for their very own SS23 Road Trip mani! Giorgia (@bygiorgia), Char (@charlotteburgessstudio_), Jasmine (@nailsby_jasminecorinna), Aliya (@_arjensisnails), Sadie (@sadiejnails), Ella (@ellavivii) and Alex (@put.it.in.nudetral) created a host of summer-ready sets that are sure to spark inspiration.
