As some of you may recall, my sweet husband has a definite opinion on nail polish. He has even dawned the doors of Barneys and chatted up the gay men at the makeup counter to secure a bottle of "Jungle Red" by Nars. He swears it is the perfect red. Typically speaking, he only likes red. So, last summer, he wasn't too happy when I came homing wearing Chinchilly...by Essie. I had seen the color on my friend Texas T and she rocked it-- but with my fair skin, I did look a little like a cadaver. BUT, I still think it is a sophisticated, neutral and modern color to wear and if I could, I would.
Once it was mid summer, I switched over to Essie's mesmerize (i think). It was a hot color here and my friend Chrissy turned me on to it. It's one of my favorite colors and it matched a couple pair of flips I own and looked awesome with my silver and purple havianas. But alas, it was lost on my husband. I got a meager "cute" from him.
So, imagine, my surprise when he came home last night with a little gift-- a bottle of Peridot by Chanel. Honestly, I think he likes it because it looks like a rainbow trout. It's funky...and green...and bronze...and iridescent...and--- well, it's everything peridot is. I'm hoping to get my hands polished today with the new hue. I'll let you know what he thinks!
