Chanel Makeup Fall 2011
I'm kind of a nail polish addict (from a young age!), so when I saw these new colours from Chanel, particularly Graphite, I knew I had to add them to my collection. I was too impatient to wait until they got released here, so I ordered them from Saks. They are pretty unique colours when you see them on the nail. Graphite and Peridot are my favourite, but even Quartz is a bit different from other polishes of the same shade- it has very very fine duo-chrome glitter/shimmer.
I also ordered the Prelude palette- a quad of neutrals with a very very fine and subtle shimmer. Neutrals are pretty much all I wear unless I feel particularly motivated and inspired to wear something a bit bolder. I have another Chanel neutral quad (Quatuor Boutons De Chanel) that runs warmer, while Prelude runs more cool/neutral. These neutral quads are perfect for traveling- everything you need in a glossy black compact little cube.
