Hi girls (and boys who fancy great nail polish) today I’d like to give you an inside on my Chanel Vernis – and yeah, I do have, erm some …
Here you find a list of my Chanel Vernis (not aligned) accompanied with personal comments:
(I used to have more … but I’ve lost some in handbags, on streets and to friends, who are no friends anymore)
(Maybe fun) fact, when writing this list, I’ve never needed to look the colors up, they’re just in my mind – all combined with feelings, occasions or the people who gave it to me as a present! I’m not the very girly girly girly type of girl, you know. But on this topic – as it is considered posh – I can’t stop talking or giggeling. 🙂 Unfortunately I had just one friend years ago who shared this passion with me. Most of my friends, whether girls or not, don’t understand my lovelust for Chanel Vernis – they only say: too expensive.
And I say: “Way worth the money fellas!” because a) most beautiful colors, b) with extraordinary shades and reflections and c) easy put-on feeling, d) long life period and e) classy product design. Of course, Essie, American Apperal and other brands are cheaper and fulfill the mentioned points c) and d) but a), b) and e) can’t be copied!! And oh, how I love the feeling when they announce the new-seasoners <3 it’s just amazing, and time for me to run to my favourite store in the arms of my beloved shop-keepers, who I know by name and smile to them in silent – and they give me my reserved limited edition Chanel Vernis. It’s the most carefree feeling in the entire world. Just in Chanel Vernis world. Well for me, it’s an easy place in my head – no stress, just colors – where I decide which color I’ll paint the world with, for the next few days!
Yeah, I do have other nail polish too, but only wearing my Essie St. Tropez on the beach and my American Apperal Sheer blue when I feel crazy. No seriously, I love my Essie and I love my American Apparel – btw if you haven’t ever tried AA nail polish: do it, not so many pretty colors but amazing different types such as NEON, Sheer, Glitter and on and on … – but Chanel is just IT. The big names f.e. YSL, Dior or Helena Rubenstein have lovely product designs, but often the put-on feeling is just ****ed up. But hey, try it for yourself.
So people go out and look on your nails, your friends nails and strangers nails – it can give you a tiny dose of “WWHHHHOOOA, AWESOME COLOR.”, which may light up your everyday life.
