Nail Polish

Pretty in Particulière

Peep my polish. This week’s mani comes courtesy of Chanel. Le Vernis in Particulière (from the spring makeup collection) is a putty/mushroomy shade that resembles one of my all-time faves, OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques.
While they appear almost identical in the bottle, the subtle differences become more obvious during application. First, Particulière is lighter than its OPI counterpart. It is also more brown than YDKJ, which is more gray. Finally, the Chanel formula is more opaque and creamier – so the coverage is better than OPI.
If taupe-y nail polishes are a once in a while kind of thing for you, there’s no reason you need both. But if you’re like me and can’t get enough of an offbeat yet neutral nail, I would recommend picking this up – even if you already have YDKJ.

All I Want To Wear Is Trance

Add this to the “why didn’t I think of this” list: the 2 Carat Cup. The handle on this oversized porcelain mug looks like a solitaire diamond ring. Lianne and I discovered this little treasure at a Fashion Week event. It will soon be available on HSN.

I’m also dangerously in love with Lianne’s Trance nail polish from Ginger + Liz. It’s #1 on my shopping list right now.

All I want to wear is…all I want to wear is Trance!
