I recently worked on an exciting project with retail fashion leader Zazaii as part of their campaign for this year's Lagos Fashion & Design Week. Amali Cosmetics created a new limited edition line in collaboration with Zazaii which was launched yesterday at fashion week. Yes, this is the same Amali Cosmetics that will be sponsoring tomorrow's #TGiFreeManicures event with complimentary pink manicures.

Directly inspired by the transformative nature of fashion and beauty and the power of individuality, the bold colour edit curated by ZAZAII,  reflects a glamorous yet playful vibe, these limited edition polishes are must haves for next season.

Fashion and beauty, beauty and fashion the two topics go hand in hand. Fashion Week is the perfect collision for these two industries -

It has been an honour collaborating with Amali on such a chic nail polish capsule" says ZAZAII CEO and Founder Isoken Ogiemwonyi. We really enjoyed the creative process with Ameera and her people they are such a creative and insightful team. And we particularly enjoyed the process of putting together the campaign with (naturally) premier beauty bloggers Ez of Beauty in Lagos and Nicole of

Fashion and beauty go hand in hand, and I know a great manicure is as key to a look as the right dress - working with such an impactful fashion brand is such an inspiration, and always a pleasure I cannot wait to see the reaction of the Amali customers I just know they will LOVE it.Ameera Abraham, Founder and CEO of The Nail Bar & Amali Cosmetics.

BeautyInLagos has teamed up once again with international Educator and Nail Technician, Mary Negron, to offer discounted group training sessions. Are you interested in becoming a Nail Technician/Manicurist? Or you are a seasoned professional and looking to improve your skills and expand your knowledge.

All the group sessions in Red, Green, Blue and Yellow are 'Look & Learn' classes. The Hands-on training sessions attract a different fee. If you would like to book a Hands-on session, or you wish to learn a combination of different techniques, just not how they have been grouped together as courses, please see contact details in the flyer above and also mentioned below.

For payment, general enquiries and to request the pricelist for private/hands-on training
Whatsapp: 08178599716 (whatsapp ONLY)

Even if you aren't interested in learning, I am sure you get your nails done at least. Please share this information with your nail tech/manicurist and also with salon owners.

I noticed that our Nail Technicians/Manicurists do not get as many training opportunities as their colleagues that work in other aspects of the beauty industry, e.g. Makeup Artists. So rather than sit around and complain about this I decided to do something about it instead, and also make it as affordable as possible.

So please help spread the word as much as you can!

I tend to forget to share things like this here on the blog. Actually I lie, I don't feel comfortable sharing it. This year has been something, in terms of features and cover stories in print magazines. Never in a billion years did I imagine I would be featured in a magazine, let alone being on the cover! I am not quite sure how to share information like this without coming across smug. But I have decided that I should allow myself celebrate and share moments like this with you guys, because without an audience none of this would ever happen. So I share this to say THANK YOU to every single person that reads this little blog!

Beauty Box magazine is a hair and beauty publication that comes as an insert in Complete Fashion Magazine. I was approached to be featured in the magazine, I had NO idea I was to be on the cover until I was in hair and makeup at the shoot. I am always uncomfortable and anxious about shoots like this, but this was by far one of my favourites. Whenever I say I am nervous about a shoot, people say "But weren't you a model"... All I can say is being shot as a model and being shot as a personality are two TOTALLY different things. Anyway, this shoot was by far one of my favourite, the entire Complete Fashion team made me feel comfortable and they came across extremely professional and relatable at the same time!

During the shoot they asked me to list 7 beauty facts about myself for their online platform:

Necessity is the mother of invention and that best describes the advent of Ezinne Alfa into beauty blogging. Having just returned to Nigeria after sojourning abroad, Ezinne said it took her a while to know where to get beauty products and services that she needed. As she made enquiries and researched, she decided to share her information with others through her beauty blog.

Here are 7 beauty facts you should know about The Ace Beauty Blogger;
  1. She can’t do without her eyeliner
  2. She exfoliates twice a week
  3. If she had to choose between letting eye shadow, lipstick, concealer or bronzers go, she would choose concealer.
  4. Her favorite hair color is red
  5. Recommending 3 tips for good skin: Exfoliate; always take off your make-up and SPF
  6. She would rather have straight hair on
  7. And heels are an everyday affair for her.
