Economists have argued that in times of crisis, women buy themselves less luxury products and will splurge on a lipstick. For me, my innocent-but-luxurious impulse treat is nail polish instead. Reading the latest magazines with a movie flickering in the background while catching up with friends and doing my nails, is such a nice way to relax and clear my head.
Chanel released this limited edition shade called Cosmic a few weeks ago, and it sure does insert some galactic magic in to my beauty cabinets. It reminds me of a clear midnight sky with shining stars and is dark yet grown-up and soft because of it’s little silver sparkles. I’m applying it on my fingers and toes right now – dripping in Chanel literally – and it’s just a little beauty tip for those who like the goth look of black nails but with a glam twist to it. What color are you currently obsessed with for your nails? Is it a burgundy, a vampy red, black or blue? Let me know in the comments.
