Nail news

Though I’ve felt like wearing more natural shades on my nails lately, constantly sporting Chanel’s 493 Jade Rose, I might feel tempted to try one of these shades from Chanel’s limited edition, Les Jeans de Chanel, that will hit stores 8th of September.

Another nail news is Alexander Wang‘s first beauty effort that includes his very own nail color collection from Sally Hansen and will debut at his Spring show in NY in a few weeks…..

Mimosa

Predicted to be a great hit this spring and summer nail wise is Chanel’s Mimosa 577, but as usual their limited edition nail polish fly off the shelves as soon as they hit the stores. A great, affordable alternative is this one from Topshop, I got mine last summer and it’s brighter than it looks and yours for £5. I know it’s not really the same thing as there’s something special with the shine in Chanel polish and they stay like rocks but I was frequently asked on my recent trip if it was Mimosa on my toes. Anyway, if you, like me, are interested in the real thing, you’ll find it in store from 20th of May.

Nail whitener

Not often I come with beauty tips on this blog but here’s a great nail product I use from Mavala, it’s an optical nail whitener, perfect for miscolored nails that gives a fresher look if you don’t want to wear nail color all the time. After using it a lot lately my nails actually have gotten whiter so it’s not just an optical illusion, yours for £10.

Something to think about for you men out there as well!

Black Pearl

I thought I was over dark nail polish for now but yesterday I came across the new color from Chanel that I blogged about ages ago, Black Pearl was launched last week, and I couldn’t resist it.

Lavendel

I’m tired of dark colored and metallic nails lately and bought this one at Topshop the other day, discrete and soft lavendel for £5, love it.

Mavala

I’m not one of those girls who get my nails done in a saloon, always done it myself so I’ve probably tried everything out there, the best top coat by miles is the Minute Quick Finish from Mavala and I’ve used it for ages, stays like a rock and doesn’t cost very much. Unfortunately there’s only one place in London who sells it as far as I know (Bliss Pharmacy), yesterday I went for a refill and spotted this new color, 155 Bronze Green, THE color I’ve been looking for.

From my angle

Today I stopped by Topshop next door and found this nail polish, similar to Chanel’s Black Pearl but not much hint of green I’m afraid, in real life it’s less purple than it looks here, I’ve tried Topshop’s polish before and they are ok, we’ll see about this one.

Since I just had a quick run out today and didn’t feel either like dressing at all (a good indication I’m not feeling well) or ask a stranger in the street to take my photo this is all I got. I wore last year’s faux fur in mc-style from Zara, knitting Zara, jeans Cheap Monday, boots Acne  and bag Biasa.
