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.

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.

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.
