Nail Varnish

When it comes to nail varnish, I definitely have a "type"

Can't get enough of that dusty-rose-taupe!

L-R: Essie Eternal Optimist, Models Own Nude Beige, China Glaze Dress Me Up, OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes, Chanel Paparazzi.

Unfortunately Dress Me Up (Hunger Games 2012) and Gouda Gouda Two Shoes (Holland 2012) are limited edition but you can probably find them on eBay. Paparazzi is from the Chanel Avant Premiere Collection and is sold out on House Of Fraser's website, but apparently it is going to become part of the permanent range. Starlet is the only shade from that collection that is limited edition.

Gouda Gouda Two shoes has, in my opinion, the nicest colour and the best formula. I have read it's practically a dupe for Chanel Rose Confidentiel so I may need to check that out.

Plenty of swatches of these shades can be found on the Internet, but when searching for Paparazzi, make sure it's Paparazzi 579 you're looking for, not Paparazzi 208 as that is a totally different colour.


  1. Essie's In Stitches is another dusty rose shade- I love it! X

    1. Thanks for the heads up, never seen that one before. Will be perfect for the autumn.
