Best Nail Polishes of 2011 à la Peach
|December 31, 2011||Posted by peach_ under Best of, Chanel, Dior, Julep|
Or should I say, the best of CHANEL, Dior, and Julep in the second half of 2011?
I posted my very first post on à la peach at the end of June this year and it’s been a wonderful half a year of blogging, sharing my obsessions, reading each of your comments, and meeting wonderful readers and fellow beauty bloggers from all over the world.
It took me a while to start blogging and finally feel “okay” to indulge in and talk about such “frivolous” things as nails and beauty after the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011 in Japan. But I’m so glad I did and I’m thankful for your taking the time to read my posts!
So let’s jump right in! In the past 6 months, I focused on CHANEL, Dior, and Julep polishes and here are my picks for the best of 2011.
Coco Blue (Les Jeans de CHANEL) - perfect light sky blue with beautiful subtle shimmer
Graphite 529 (Illusions d’Ombres de CHANEL) – complex blend of cool & warm, silver & gold
Morning Rose 557 (Les Fleurs d’Ete de CHANEL) – feminine peachy pink with gold shimmer
Exquis 611 (Les Rouges Or) – must-have mushroomy shade with golden shimmer
Saint-Tropez 401 - beachside vacation blue worthy of its ultra-limited edition status
Trafalgar 747 (Les Rouges) – lively, look-at-me poppy red
Michelle - sophisticated, smart blazer navy blue
Gayle – eggplant purple that completely transforms in sunlight
Natasha – loud, spicy red-orange jelly
Favorite Discovery of 2011
Why? Because it glows under black light! How cool is that? I’ve never seen another neon salmon-pink jelly like it!
