CHANEL Le Vernis (505 Particuliere)

29 December, 2010 § 4 Comments

In all probability this is going to be the last post of the year, so here’s to wishing everyone a happy new year.

CHANEL Le Vernis 13ml

Particuliere was released for Spring this year, and is already almost a classic (and perhaps you will argue it is a one already). I’m not sure if it’s a limited edition shade (my original impression) or has made the permanent lineup. The colour in the bottle and on my nails — they’re identical — is a warm greyed brown with no shimmer. It’s a mousy colour but (somehow) it’s beautiful (opinions may vary). It’s a shade that is classic, elegant, stylish, but never boring. For me it’s the colour I turn to when I’m tired of pale pinks, peaches and beiges yet want something neutral and unostentatious.

CHANEL Le Vernis (483 Vendetta)

23 December, 2010 § 2 Comments

I’m still finding it a little hard to believe the year is almost at its end already, but. Merry Christmas! And I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday period (with lots of food, and whatnot :P).

CHANEL Le Vernis 13ml

I’ve had Vendetta for a while, but it’s not one of my favourites, hence its appearance only now. On my nails it’s a deep indigo, with no real visible shimmer. It looks a little lighter and more purple in the bottle, with visible blue and red micro-shimmer. It does fit my ideas/images of ‘vendetta’ perfectly, but I’m a little disappointed the shimmer doesn’t translate onto the nails.

NARS Nail Polish (Pussy Galore)

NARS Nail Polish 15ml $16 (plus tax)

Nope, my blog isn’t turning into a nail blog. I wouldn’t mind, but I simply don’t have enough bottles of nail polish. I have only about ten bottles(!!!) even though I love painting my nails. (///ω///)テレテレ♪

NARS Pussy Galore is my first and only NARS Nail Polish. I think NARS has some wonderful edgy colours (the Vintage series in particular looks very appealing), but I’m a little disappointed with Pussy Galore. I don’t think this pink suits me much. (・ε・`*) …

DIOR Vernis (189 Porcelaine)

DIOR Vernis 10ml

189 Porcelaine was one of two nail polish releases from DIOR Spring 2009, but I only got it more recently from a swap. I love pale pinks, peaches and nudes so I was very happy to get this. わぁいヽ(∀`ヽ●)(ノ●´∀)ノ わぁい♪ It’s my first bottle of DIOR Vernis (although I have mini DIOR Addict nail polishes), but hopefully not my last! (*`▽´*)ウヒョヒョ

I used to ignore DIOR nail polish because the packaging looked unappealing compared to CHANEL‘s sleek, black minimalism, but then I tried the mini DIOR Addict nail polishes and I forgot all about CHANEL. (●´ω`●)ゞ エヘヘ♪ I like DIOR‘s flat brush (I can’t use the other type well at all so brush is very important to me) and formula better.
