Nail Polish: Red
I am absolutely loving the sneak peak at this Chanel nail polish which is not yet available. The color is Dragon - isn't that just the ticket. At first glance it seems like covet, Holy Grail, swoon-worthy red and I hope, pray, plead to God that I can get my hands on it before it is out of stock - because we all know it will be. Today I'm wearing Keys to my Karma by OPI and every time I look down at my nails it makes me happy. It's almost a true red, but there's a hint of cherry in it. It's very bright, but nowhere near the vicinity of ornage. Until now I have to say my favorite red is Vodka and Caviar from OPI. It's the most beautiful red ever! I don't know if Chanel Drago will top it.
I've been thinking about the matte nail polish trend and I don't think I can get behind it. It'll get no love from me. I mean, that ultra glossy, polished look is everything. It screams glamour, class, elegance, I-don't-wash-dishes, and my-nails-look-better-than-yours. What more can you ask for? I heard tell that the new IT color for fall/autumn Americana is going to be green. I can't get behind that either. For all my open mindedness about nails, green is the one color I cannot bring myself to love. I can't explain it, really, and it makes no sense since I love green eyeshadow. I love blue nail polish, but hate, hate, hate green.
