Chanel Le Vernis Vertigo Swatches

Chanel Le Vernis Vertigo

Somehow last fall I missed out on Chanel Le Vernis Vertigo. Well I finally had a chance to see it in person not too long ago and decided it was one Chanel that would be coming home with me.

Vertigo isn’t an easy shade to explain though!

The Award for the Best Nail Polish of 2012 Goes to…Color Club Port-Folio!

Color Club Port Folio Bottle

The year is not yet over but here I go choosing my favorite nail polish of 2012. There are a couple reasons for my early decision.

One is that since I did this, I cut all my nails down to super nubs knowing I wouldn’t be able to swatch for a bit. Then on top of the super nubs, my ring finger nail decided to break so it’s now a super, super nub. Nothing annoys me more than uneven nails, so I am still waiting for it to grow out to swatch other collections I am waiting on. I took these photos back in August. :)

But the second reason is that I honestly don’t think there will be another shade released this year that I love as much as Color Club Port-Folio.

Is Jemma Kidd 24/7 Long-Wear Lip Colour in Femme a Perfect Nude?

Jemma Kidd Femme Lipstick

Jemma Kidd 24/7 Long-Wear Lip Colour in Femme is a really great “nude” shade. I put “nude” in quotes because as you know, nude is different for everyone depending on your skin tone.

24/7 Long-Wear Lip Colours are a semi-matte formula and contain macadamia and avocado oils to help moisturize your lips. They also have vitamins A, E and C for antioxidant protection.

This particular shade is only available at Target.
