Go on. Do it. Dooooo it!
Stop trying to resist. Let the feeling wash over you like melted butter on French toast.
(Dang, how can I still be hungry…? I had a huge lunch!)
I’m talking about that craving you get when you fall in love with a new Chanel nail polish, and suddenly the thought of dropping $30 on a single bottle makes perfect sense.
But it didn’t start out that way. My first thought when I saw Western Light from a few feet away was, “Pretty, but what’s the big whoop? It looks like a standard issue dark purple cream.”
Two coats later I was hooting and whistling at my hands like some kind of lip-licking, lecherous nail polish pervert, LOL!
You know how some nail polishes are masters of disguise? One minute they look one color, and the next they look another?
Well, Western Light does that. From some angles, it’s a blackened eggplant; from others, a dark roast coffee, hold the cream and sugar.
And it loves the open plains… Or rather, it loves spending time outside where it can get some sun. In direct sunlight, it looks much more complex. Reddish pearl micro-shimmer bursts through!
There goes Chanel again with the unexpected surprises.
Western Light is brand-spankin’ new, and I’ve only been wearing it a short while, but I’ve had great luck with other Chanel nail polishes lasting a respectable amount of time on my nails. In general, I’ll get at least seven days out of them before the chips come home to roost.
