LOL. This was the color that almost cost Pam a kidney and a lot of heartbreak. Chanel's Khaki Vert. I love this color so much that I already have my backup bottle. And it makes me breathe a sigh of relief to know that she has secured herself a set of this too. The polish Gods have heard our prayers.
The best part was that it was a creamy one-coater. Chanel loves my nails and my nails love Chanel right back.
Gorgeous grey-green for the fall. I'll be wearing this a lot! :D
Was that you? Was that you on those fingers this morning on the subway? I spy with my little eye, I think it was indeedy. It could only be you. That poppy pink is unmistakable. Coupled with the arrival of fall, it only makes sense that someone posh would wear this AND frequent the TST subway stop.
WHERE have I been! On set, of course. I work in film, and for the past three weeks we shot on location (an A-movie that will come out next fall, but I'm to keep mum about it at the moment) and so Hollywood came all the way over here to the little city of Hong Kong and it was a, sigh, beautiful relationship.
When I'm on set, I'm down and dirty doing all kinds of grunt work, and so having the perfect manicure is probably the last thing on my mind. But I do like a splash of color on my nails, and because the god-awful shooting schedule that I lead for a few weeks unables me to change my polish, it is really important that I have a color that STAYS. And stays. And stays.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have found my HOLY GRAIL RED.
It is a jelly-like red that drips wine. 2 easy thin coats. But, enough of this small talk. Let me show you how this polish stayed:
^ Day 1.
^ Day 2.
^ Day 3.
^ Day 4.
^ Day 5.
^ Day 6.
^ Day 7.
^ Day 8.
^ Day 9.
^ Day 10.
AT THIS POINT, we had a brief break in between shooting, so I was able to finally take off Merlot for my next week of shoot. TEN DAYS. LOOK at it. Minimal tip wear, and this is a FILM SET we're talking about. ON LOCATION. OUTDOORS. 12 hours + everyday. No chips, no dents, no marks. It stayed as shiny on Day 10 as it did on Day 1 when I first painted it on. Mind you, this was without additional top coats throughout the week. It is that perfect.
By Day 10 I had serious dark circles and Exhaustion 5000, but my nail polish stayed glossy and wet. And gorgeous. And red.
Say it with me now, folks. It's MERLOT by Jessica.
