The Nail Files 10/12

 
Today I am linking up with Tara and Vicki for the Nail Files.


Chanel "Vamp"
 
Today I used an oldie but goodie. I used to be obsessed with this color back in the 90s when it first came out. It was such a hot color that you could not find it anywhere and it was back ordered for months. I went so far as to call Las Vegas to find it. I am admitting this embarrassingly, what was I thinking?  I ended up finding it in Florida while we were on vacation. Dark colors aren't as popular in warmer weather climates apparently. It was like I hit the jackpot. It came in 3 variations, Vamp, Very Vamp and Metallic Vamp.
I bought all three. This was the first dark color I had ever tried. I loved it.
 
 
This was my first time using this color in about 15 years. I remember it as being darker.
I still love it. Chanel polishes are great long wearing polishes. OPI and Chanel are the longest wearing polishes I have found. Lets see how well it wears with all of the crafting and baking I have been doing.
 
Have a great weekend!

  8. I can't believe how much dark colours are 'in' these days. It used to be a bit goth but I think now it's glam. Enjoy your projects this weekend, just don't work too hard ;)
