CND · Nude The Collection

 

Nude polish is a shade everyone can wear: it’s basically a question of finding one with the right undertone. So when CND released this capsule collection, I was pleasantly surprised to find that these 4 hues actually had such a good range. Colour fads will come & go, but let’s face it; nude is a classic … as in the nail version of the ‘little black dress’.

CHANEL · Apotheosis Le Mat de CHANEL, Fall/Winter 2018

 

For Fall/Winter 2018, CHANEL is revisualizing matte in a whole new way via the Apotheosis Le Mat de CHANEL Collection. Autumn’s earthy hues are reinvented and given a modern vibe — and while matte reigns supreme here, the finishes have been softened and almost blurred, providing a lushness to the textures that make them in turn utterly feminine, and yet so absolutely powerful. Provocative, done in true CHANEL style.

CHANEL · Le Vernis 2018

 

I’ve never made my love of CHANEL a secret, and while I can wax poetic on basically everything this brand has to offer, I have to confess that in the nail polish department, this venerable house has sometimes come up short. Not that it’s stopped me from obsessively collecting every shade produced, mind you. But that was then … and this is now, and it’s a really, really, good now. Recently launched, CHANEL has created 6 new Le Vernis shades that in my opinion, are definitely investment-worthy.

Dior · Cool Wave Summer 2018, Lips & Nails

 

 

Summertime collections definitely rank as some of my absolute faves, and as far as I’m concerned, Dior has totally knocked it out of the park with the Cool Wave Summer 2018 Collection. In fact, I’ll even go on record as saying that this brand is continuously upping their own game, releasing colours that bear a universal appeal and formulations that rock. So what are you waiting for? Just dive in … see what I did there? #noshame

CHANEL · Dernières Neiges Collection

 

CHANEL’s Dernières Neiges Collection is filled with an ethereal watercolour beauty as well as the promise of Spring … and about as lovely as a collection can get. Rose tones which add such a brightening effect, play a starring role along with texture and formula variations — but the real story is in how beautifully everything works, whether you opt for just one piece or the entire lot (although something tells me you’ll want it all).
