Caving in

I wanted light coloured nail polishes for spring. Pink ones. Nude ones. Certainly no more dark hues after wearing all this black and grey during winter. I was perfectly happy with still using last season's "it" polish from Chanel, the 505 Particuliére. I did not feel I needed the newest "must have". Not at all.

But then what happened? One blogger after the other featured gushing words and tempting images of the grey/green/black'ish Black Pearl. I tried so hard to resist. First I bought one pink. Then another, even lighter pink. Every time I went past the local beauty store, while desperate not to, I just had to look at the Chanel display to see if it was still sitting there. Deep down I was hoping it would be sold out before I had to throw in the towel.

But it didn't help. It was still available, every time I passed through the shop.

I'm not a weak person. All this subtle persuasion got the better of me.Yeah, that's it. I blame the blogging brainwashers.;)

PS. One coat makes it look grey. Two layers bring out the gorgeous green, almost holograpich, effect. Love it!


  1. Knew you'd go for it!! Happy nails and happy weekend to you.... Have a good one. (Semi - Expat) xx

  2. I NEVER wear anything but dark nail colors - at least there will be two of us in Oslo with dark nails in the summertime! :)

  3. I've never tried dark nail color, mostly because I'm afraid of it chipping right away, but I would love to someday! I think you picked a fab one!

  4. I'm always about 5 years behind the fashion on nail polish colors... if you get tired of this, you can sell it to me ;)

  5. Okay even though I blogged about it I didn't go get it ...yet Now I have to! Thanks for the tip on the coats....
    Have a great week,

  6. black and grey weather is not far away here.. so maybe i should buy myself a bottle too!
