BOTANY FUN FACT: even though eggplant hangs out with the vegetables in the supermarket, it’s actually a fruit.
Why am I telling you this?
Well, I wouldn’t want you to be unprepared for Final Jeopardy, obvs. 🙂 Also, the new purple polish by Chanel, Charivari, just might be the most perfect eggplant I’ve ever seen.
It’s from the new Notes de Printemps (notes of spring) collection, which comes out next month. If you live near a Nordstrom, check and see if it’s already on counter. I caught a brief glimpse of it when I whizzed through the beauty department earlier this week. Unfortunately, I was running errands and didn’t have time to play. 🙁
From a quick glance, though — beautiful! There are lots of bright, intense pinks, corals and deep purples, along with some gray, ivory, peach and red.
So, Charivari, le eggplant. It seems kind of moody and melodic…like a Cure song in color.
I’m wearing two coats in this swatch, purely out of habit, but a single layer would have been fine.
