It’s really difficult to remember that it’s still only August since most of July was taken up with previewing A/W08 and Christmas Collections. I’m dying to try the new purples – especially for nails – OPI has a stunning collection based around Paris. The hottest colour is Louvre Me Louvre Me Not in shimmering, deep purple. There’s also lots of grey around which can look stunning, especially a dark grey eyeliner, and it’s perfect partner, perennial favourite, red lipstick. Stock up on greyish mauves, deepest purples, smouldering grey and a couple of red glosses to get on the season’s style track.
