Summer neons, had me a blast...

Now that we're well into September, Summer for 2016 has officially ended. 

Well, we don't know about you, but at Fairypants HQ we're just not ready to say goodbye. What better way to hang onto those fun Summer vibes than by painting them onto our nails?

Anyone who keeps their finger on the pulse of nail art channels on YouTube will know that in the last year or so, 'dry-brushing' has come into its own as the saviour of the not-so-artsy nail fanatics everywhere. You don't need a steady hand, you don't need any fancy products or tools and you don't even need a lot of time. It's also a super easy way to get a French mani with a twist! None of those fiddly straight lines for us!

Choose a nude/pale base coat (we've gone for white), then using your colours of choice, wipe as much product as possible from the brush, and swipe the remainder onto those talons! Swipe vertically, horizontally, diagonally- whatever takes your fancy! This look is so versatile - you could literally use any colours - nudes, brights, glitters - and you're guaranteed an unusual mani that looks like it took a LOT more effort than it did. As our aim is to recapture the Summer, we plumped for the Fairypants Neon Collection on a white base, with a glossy topcoat. A matte topcoat would also look awesome! We've also popped a cheeky bit of a glitter accent on the ring fingernail, but you can work this look any way that takes your fancy!

Is this the most versatile look or what?

Which colours would you choose? If you've recreated this look (or changed it up with new colours), tweet us or tag us on Instagram! We'd love to see what you've come up with!

Gorge new labels!

If you follow any of our social media accounts you’ll have twigged that we’re upgrading all our labelling on our products. It’s been a big project, but it’s all coming together now, and we think it all looks lovely.

Here’s some of our wonderful Dry Skin Balms after having the new artwork treatment. We think they look pretty ace – and they’re selling like hot cakes too, as you’ve realise just how marvellous they actually are!


Our classic lipbalms were the first to get the treatment, and we really love these labels – they just look so clean, and professional!


Look at our awesome perfumes – we think the labels look excellent on our 30ml perfumes and on our 10ml roll- on sizes too.


And here are our divine lip scrubs – we’ve launched three new flavours of these bad boys too – Bubblegum, Parma Violet and Marshamallow – how could you not?!

Lastly, we’re waiting for all our other labels to be printed, but we’ll be sharing photos on our Facebook and Instagram as soon as we get them, so keep your eyes peeled! xox

The secret is out!!

If you follow us on any of our social media pages you'll know that we were teasing you with photos of 700 of our divine Lemon Drizzle Lip Scrubs. What could we be doing with so many goodies?!

Well the secret is finally out. If you've followed us for a while you'll remember back in October 2014 we worked with The Vegan Kind which is an awesome subscription box service. You can choose from a monthly food box, or a quarterly beauty box - or treat yourself to both!

So we <3 -="" again="" and="" asked="" at="" chance="" got="" jumped="" kind="" lip="" making="" much="" never="" p="" scrub="" seen="" so="" sugar="" the="" they="" to="" us="" ve="" vegan="" we="" when="" with="" work="">
We got our brand new labels on the go, and we sent the goodies on their way to be packed into the boxes.

Look how gorgeous they are! We couldn't wait to find out what all the lovely Vegan Kind customers had to say about our lip scrubs, and we didn't have to wait too long - the reviews came in thick and fast on our Instagram and Facebook pages!

Annnnnd we're back!

We haven't posted for a month - and for good reason. It's been a really busy month for us as we've been having a cheeky little rebrand before we launch our new website later in the year.

Our rebrand has involved new artwork labels for our products, like the awesome labels on our classic lipbalms.

We're also slowly replacing all of our ingredients labels on our products to make them a little clearer and easier for you to read!

It's all super exciting, our products look much better in their new branding, and we hope it's all a bit clearer for you guys too! We're proud to announce that our rebranding is coming to a close, and as such all our lovely products are now back on sale on our website, and we're rolling out all the lovely new labels!!

We can't wait to see what you think! xox

Stand up for ... vegans?

This post is probably not Fairypants related, not really - but it involves Chief Fairy Natalie, so we thought you might be interested.

In December last year Natalie was asked to take part in an evening of stand up comedy, in aid of Claire House Children's Hospice on the Wirral. She said yes, and it involved several evenings spent in an office in Liverpool learning how to be funny.

December's comedy night was the last for most participants, but Natalie enjoyed it so much that when she was asked to perform stand up at an event in February, she agreed.

She has now performed at three events, and has a couple more in the pipeline - if you'd like to keep up with what she's doing you can follow her here, and watch her videos on youtube! Hopefully you'll find her as funny as she thinks she is.
