Today, for the first time in ages, I went to the cosmetics section of Nordstrom.
I had a mission: a perfect pedicure color.
Earlier this week, I saw two shades I liked in Bazaar: YSL’s “Sublime Red” and Chanel’s “LA Sunset.” The YSL color baffled the salespeople and the Chanel is available only in California. I’m on the east coast.
Note to Mr. C, who’s en route to CA tomorrow: Think “LA Sunset” by Chanel.
I thus became cranky with Bazaar, which is my usual mood, anyway, after I look at that magazine (note that I didn’t say “read”). Why feature two nail polish colors if they aren’t available??!!??
So I regrouped and took another spin around the Chanel counter. I saw a red, popped it open, and tested the pigment on my fingernail. Even Nordstrom’s creepy lighting couldn’t detract from its perfect redness.
The polish is called “Dazzling” and is part of the Holiday 2007 collection. Holiday, schmoliday; this polish works for the summer city and beach. Something tells me I should buy another bottle or two in case it’s discontinued.
And I even bought a very subtle, lightly red-ish lipstick too: Chanel Number 104. 1 + 0 + 4 = 5. Chanel No. 5. And what do you wear to bed?
