Nail polish favourites of mine right now are Essie’s nr.487 Berry Hard and Chanel’s old classic nr.18 Rouge Noir, both are perfect shades of deep burgundy with brown undertones and quite similar, but Essie’s slightly lighter which I don’t mind, also stay’s like a rock and half the price of Chanel.

    Can’t find the perfect burgundy at all: essie’s one is too light and chanel’s is too expensive 🙁

    must try that essie one – dark lips and nails have become almost permanent for me this winter
    I have a great one called burgundy #2 by Nail Girls, super cheap but not exactly great staying power (you can see it in this post –

    ? Thankfifi

    I love burgundy on my toe nails this time of year, it’s super wearable.
    However Nails Inc have the hardest wearing one I’ve found and it’s under £10.00 – Well worth trying.

    Rouge noir is still my favourite! When it came out in the 90s I bought a few bootles in advance. You never know!

    Classical winter colours indeed !
    I hope the Essie stands better than the Chanel…which always chip off very quickly !
    A shame for such pricy nail polishes !

    Hey Hedvig, great post as always!

    Just to let you know it is “burgundys” and “stays” without the apostrophes 🙂

    From an English grammar geek!

    Jeg begynner å bli ganske lei burgunder plagg pga massebruken av det i Norge, men kunne godt tenke med denne lakken!
