Ah! It’s Tuesday. Dooh!
THAT TODAY IS APRIL FOOL’S DAY 🙂 And I couldn’t think of any other way to celebrate April 1st than by posting a Manicure Monday post on Tuesday. And because it’s Tuesday and not Monday (and a day full of pranks) I bring to you: TWO SIMILAR NAIL POLISHES 🙂
Aren’t I a peach for telling you that this is no illusion. Both polishes are soft pinks. Both are high-end products. And both look similarly amazing. Pastel, blushing rose colours are so pretty…
Now let’s take a brief moment to bask in the beauty of their names. First up: Chanel – Ballerina. That one is obvious. Of course I would be drawn to that name. I mean seriously..
It doesn’t matter that I haven’t actually set foot in a ballet studio in FOREVER, but that’s another story for another time. I did go to Jazz class last night though (yay me!).
Ballerina is soft pink, almost nude. A reminiscence of the tutu-leotard combo I used to pull of as a little girl. Ahh childhood…
The polish itself covers well – you wouldn’t expect anything less from Chanel. I do have one complaint though: The brush is too narrow. After being spoiled endlessly by Dior last week, I do not appreciate non-voluptuous brushes. Bigger is better people, get with the program! It really is frustrating to apply polish with a narrow brush when you have zero patience…
Now on to Dior. It’s called Tra-La-La. How cute is that?!
Although similar in color upon first swipe, this polish coats the nail slightly more leaving the nail a more luscious pink and less of a barely there nude. And, as mentioned above, the brush takes me to “wonderland” 😉
Whichever you choose, you’re in for a long-lasting nail polish!
Also, I’d like to take this moment to thank the beautiful people at InStyle Magazine in Germany. I wouldn’t have been able to compare and contrast both polishes if it hadn’t had been for the opportunity I received to intern there for a month. I am extremely thankful for the experience I received and all the products I got to discover! I really had the time of my life and I can’t wait to return :)! So, THANK YOU!
Hope you had a wonderful Monday and are having a sunny Tuesday!
With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
