1, 2, 3

3 favourites of mine right now that I especially like wearing with blue denim!

Estée Lauder’s Nail Lacquer in So Vain, except for the exceptional beautiful bottle this is the perfect nude’ish nail polish and only one coat is needed, launching in March 2013.
Hoop earrings by Topshop, not too chunky or heavy (for actually being worn!).
Leather cuff by Balenciaga, similar here.

New by Chanel

Tomorrow these 3 new spring 2013 colours will hit a Chanel counter near you, and No. 571 Fracas could possible be the exact blue’ish pink colour I’ve been searching for.

Burgundy’s

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.

The perfect shade of grey…

… you’ll find in a nail polish bottle by Chanel this fall called Frenzy 559, which I had on my nails while shooting in Paris. It’s the perfect creamy grey polish with a hint of lavender, and if you like me prefer more discreet and nude’ish looking nails, you’re gonna love this one. In stores from 24th of August, join the queue!

Magique!

Latest addition in my bathroom closet is this instant nail polish remover (£8) I got at Sephora while in Paris last week, just dip your fingers into the box and turn it around, no grease and nail polish gone, magique! Best polish I’ve ever tried, dermatologically tested, smells good and definitely living up to it’s name.

Black Pearl

As you may know Chanel has a huge impact on how we paint our nails every season, probably due to their very limited edition range that hits the market a few times a year and the hype around it is always insane, waiting lists, selling out as soon as they hit the counter for £16 and then can then be found on ebay from £60 and up. Even if you think they don’t influence what you wear they probably do cause their trend colors get copied by any high street brand out there. Do you remember 2009′s Jade color, Februar’s Particuliere, June’s Nouvelle Vague and the Khaki range a month ago.

Here’s a sneak peak, the new color will most likely be Black Pearl. When Chanel presented their Spring Collection 2011 all the models nails were painted in a black pearly color with hints of green, being seen on the Spring show is a pretty good indicator on what’s gonna be the next nail-mania. Personally I think it’s a bit dark for spring but I’m sure it’s gonna be a success as always, in fact I’m gonna look around for something similar and wear it now.
