Manicure (and Bijoux) du Jour: Vendetta from Chanel!

Manicure Nail Art Tutorial Bijoux French Designer

One of the shades I love on my nails in winter is a deep dark purple!

It looks great on white skin ;) and is the perfect shade to lighten up big black coats / pullover.

Vendetta from Chanel Les Vernis is a great one. The shade is actually quite dark, so depending on whether you like it darker or more purpley, you can apply only one or the usual two layers.

I am wearing it this week with my new bracelet “Folk” from Caroline Najman, a French jewelry designer I am having a crush on.

Manicure du Jour: Pearly Pink!

Pearly Pink GlossFinity Max Factor

First manicure of the year: Pearly Pink from Max Factor!

A subtle and classy fine shimmer with pearly reflects. My favorite nail polish for this time of the year after all the xmas and new year’s eve extravaganza. It reminded me a bit of the topcoat Première Neige that Yves Saint Lauren is currently doing (but yeah yeah is way cheaper).

You can apply it alone (as I did on these pictures) for a chic and subdued look or use it on top of other colours to add a touch of holo onto any of your existing nail polishes! It comes wonderfully on navy and black too.
