Christmas is getting close. I just realized I have hardly been thinking about it (despite all the lights, the Christmas windows and the Christmas merchandising we are bombarded with year after year); I'm neither a freak Christmas fanatic nor one of those people that go about saying how much they absolutely hate Christmas to anyone who will listen. I simply enjoy eating lovely Spanish food and the Christmas tree... Which brings me to my actual subject: that famous Chanel Jade nail polish. Karl Lagerfeld originally created it to match his autumn collection, but a green polish seems quite appropiate for this time of the year. I'm internationally known for my daring nail colours (I started using Rouge Noir long before it became a classic and I detest what is called "the French manicure"), I own a wide range of reds, oranges, pinks and purples but... Would I actually wear a green nail polish? I've always thought extravagant colours need to be sublime, otherwise they look just plain silly. That's why I like the Chanel one. But I hear it's completely sold out, so I've been looking for other alternatives.Those of you who wouldn't wear green can wear Jade Rose, the discreet version of this season's limited edition... But I think it's sold out as well.
The green one is called Peppermint and it looks this cool.
Other similar alternatives can be found at Bourjois (for half the price) and Shu Uemura.
I've also seen this Sephora one. Turquoise can be beautiful, but I think it's too summery.
