i got: Fall Winter 2011 – 2012 Nail Binge: NARS, Dior, Chanel

I’ve had some fun buying some of the Fall Winter 2011 – 2012 nail polish options.


NARS Nail Polish
Left to Right: Galion, Night Rider, Night Porter, Night Flight, Night Breed

NARS is one of my go to nail polish brands.  It has a beautiful, slick finish and with a nice brush.  The polish wears well for me too.    I got the entire Night Series collection (Night Rider, Night Porter, Night Flight, Night Breed) because I couldn’t choose. The Night Series collection is based on the iconic NARS Night Series Eyeshadows.  I also had to have the Fall 2011 colour, Galion.


Tips Gradient Manicure
Left to Right: Chanel Coco Blue, Chanel Blue Boy, Chanel Blue Rebel

I got The Oracle to pick me up the Les Jeans de Chanel colours that were limited edition for Fashion Night Out 2011.  I had Melissa from Tips Nail Bar to incorporate them into a great blue gradient manicure because I couldn’t choose just one to wear.   I love Chanel nail polish it wears very well and has staying power.

Weird brush on the Dior polish but I have to love the results

I saw Apparat, the new limited edition Dior Nail Lacquer for Holiday 2011 on my new favourite beauty site Temptalia.  The photos on Temptalia looked so good.  Apparat is a gorgeous ruby colour with a hint of gold.   I immediately started a twitter search to find it.   With the help of the Hudson Bay twitter account, I found Apparat at the Queen Street flagship store.

  1. I’m paying even CLOSER attention to the nail posts now that I actually have some ( I tried shellac french manicure, so they had a chance to grow a bit longer). I’m really fond of reds (my first instinct was to go for the Dior red, but those blues are really interesting. Especially the blue Chanel Rebel.
