hello darkness, my old friend

May 20, 2008

Chanel Blue Satin is my nail varnish of choice at the moment. like black, this dark navy blue is great for summer as a contrast to light, bright colours and fun floral patterns (Selina’s d.i.y. Rodarte shoes contrasted with her white tights spring to mind), but unlike black it shimmers beautifully in the sun. it’s unfortunate then, that ireland reached it’s yearly quota for sunshine last week sometime, har har. the price reflects the quality as it is high in pigment so it only requires one coat although i have yet to master the art of maintaining a varnish job for more than one hour. having said all that, The Vintage Society has me craving a nail polish colour from the other end of the spectrum, sherbet! mainly because it conjures up images of dip dabs and those little plastic fruits filled with fizzy sugary goodness. speaking of which, i believe it is of utmost importance that you all visit The Penny Sweet Shop.

    I have a day off between exams tomorrow. I think it could be very profitably spent searching for a new nail varnish. I’m tired of wearing black, and I feel too hoochy in red. Maybe pink is the way forward. Or or or grey?
