I am loving my bottle of Chanel Nail Colour in Blue Satin, £13.
It’s the inkiest combination of blue/black that is just sheer chic. If you think you can’t work it on your hands – nail nibblers listen up – wear it on toes instead with black patent peep toe stillettos for undiluted glam. A top coat of the brilliant Seche Vite gives it an unbeatable gloss – mine stayed chip free for three days. Remember though, always, always use an undercoat when applying dark colours otherwise when it comes to removing the polish your nails will look like you spent the weekend changing the oil in your motorbike. One thing I didn’t know about Chanel nail polish is that it’s toluene free. However, I am absolutely not loving Chanel’s Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Indigo; a clever, on trend, blue/black fusion. While the colour is irristibly pretty, the formula is utterly disappointing; it’s dry, flakey and had all but disappeared after only a couple of hours. Come on couture people, sort that out.
