Girl, I don’t care how you do it — walk, run, rollerskate or hitch a ride on a three-legged donkey — but find some way to see the new limited edition Vendetta nail polish ($23) in person before it’s too late.
One of two new nail polish shades released for spring 2009, Vendetta’s shimmery midnight purple shines with flecks of red and blue micro-gltter. Imagine the darkest purple — nay, almost black calligraphy ink — and that’s Vendetta. I. LOVE. IT.
Vendetta selling out fast
I’m not the only girl fawning over it. A Chanel artist friend told me the color has been selling out super uber-fast. So fast, in fact, that in less than a week her counter had sold more than half their supply! Some women were buying multiple bottles, LOL! Seriously, I can see why. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
Love Chanel Vendetta but looking to save a few bucks? Consider Essie Sexy Divide ($8).
Django, Chanel’s second spring polish shade
Vendetta (aka the spring nail superstar) joins another Chanel polish shade this spring. Django, a shimmery, peachy beige with pink touches, looks just like the inside of a seashell.
While Django may not look as dramatic or seem as unique as Vendetta, I still like it. The peach and pink add warmth to the beige, and together I think they complement tan skin. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
My empire for a sale on Chanel…
No two ways about it — these nail polishes are pricey, but they’re both top notch in terms of pigmentation and durability. I can be tough on my nails, yet after four days (without a base coat), there isn’t a chip on ’em. That’s a big plus for me.
I went home a few days ago to see my parents and to celebrate my mum’s 60th birthday (happy b-day, mumsy!).
And since El Hub and I had been visiting the rest of our family over in Hawaii on Christmas Day, we also celebrated our East Bay belated Christmas.
Look what my mom made for me… 🙂
Awww! SO CUTE!
