Chanel Summer 2015 Le Vernis Nail Colour in Lavanda

Why hasn’t my love for Chanel’s summery vivid violet Lavanda nail lacquer translated into love in my closet?

One of life’s great mysteries, I suppose…


I rutted around in there this morning to find something to wear with Lavanda (I’m wearing two coats in these pics, by the way), and the only thing I could find was this romper.

Actually, I know why I don’t own many purple pieces of clothing (and other bright colors). It’s the cat hair. My wardrobe has progressively grown more gray over the past few years to match the tabby fur that I’m almost constantly covered in from head to toe.

I’ve been trying to re-colorize lately, but there’s still a ways to go. Today is a good step, though.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,



P.S. What are you wearing on your nails today?

P.P.S. Guess who’s going to see the New Kids on the Block, Nelly and TLC tonight!? YES! My friend Marisol got us tickets. I may even wear a Band-Aid on my cheek like Nelly did back in the day!

Just kidding. I’m very excited though. 🙂

    At the risk of sounding EXTREMELY repetitive, I’m wearing MAC’s Modern Movement nail polish from Lightness of Being. It’s officially my favorite nail polish ever to exist! 😀

  2. I haven’t decided yet what I will be going to wear on my nails. Decisions!
    Have fun at the concert.

    Have a great time at the concert!

    You’ve been rocking some super cute polish lately! You seemed to match it up nicely with the romper. I really like that combo! Very cute and summery!

    That romper looks great on you, and so do the wedges (saw it in the post linked to the romper) 🙂

    The NKOTB?? OMG, it reminds me of my teens, when my BFF and I had posters in our bedrooms and were playing their tape over and over again on our Walkmen (Walkmans??) 🙂 Yeah they were big in France among teens too.

    NKOTB? So jealous! Nelly, I can take or leave. But I say again, no matter how many holograms they conjure up, it is not TLC without Lisa!

    Love the purple Chanel. I, as usual, have nothing on my nails. I do have the new(ish) Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Malibu Peach sitting here on my desk waiting for me, though, so that might happen tomorrow.

    This is totally random but my burnt-out, end of the week, it’s Friday gotta leave work mind was pronouncing Lavanda similarly to “LaFawnda” (like in Napoleon Dynamite)! Lol! TGIF! Have fun at the concert! NKOTB 4eva!! Lol!

  10. Mel says:

    I just got Pretty Gritty from RBL and I’m wearing that. It’s beautiful.

  11. Agata says:

    That romper is really pretty. You know I love purple and have a lot of purple clothes. And naturally, I love this nail polish! The necklace is cute too! Damn you Loft!

    Have fun at the concert!!

    Such a great primary purple! Hope you have an amazing time tonight – I have friends that went to the LA show and loved it! 🙂

  13. Kwmechelle says:

    NO WAY!!!! That concert sounds like sooooooooo much fun. I have a similar purple polish on mah toes & a sky blue on mah fingers that looks like Tiffany blue in certain light. Have an amazing time.
    PS wear the band aid in honor of Nelly. I’m sure he’d approve =)

  14. Woot, epic matching skills, Karen 🙂 Cute shade. Not something I’d personally reach for though. I guess I don’t have much passion for purple.

    I have become very quezy about gel polish lately. The one that uses the UV light .
    I know you have posted some articles recently but what are your current thoughts on gel polish & UV light ?

  16. Your shirt is beautiful, Karen! So is the nail polish.
