If you have noticed I have not been posting as often as usual. The problem, my husband’s Achilles heel injury. If you have ever taken care of a sick spouse, boyfriend or and man I think you might know why I needed a reward. Last Thursday was the surgery and I am just not used to this. So, I had a gift certificate from Macy’s and when I saw that Chanel had released their autumn/fall polishes this was my favorite it is called Alchimie. I would describe this color as a shiny olive, it is like you would take a raw olive and then put a coat of Seche Vite over it. It is really pretty and so neutral. I put it against some clothes and it pretty much went with everything I had even some reds. The formula is much like the other Chanel’s I have reviewed first coat a little streaky but the second coat completely took care of the streaks and it looked perfect. This is two coats with one coat of top coat. I am back to Seche Vite. It is just easier to come by than the Nubar top coat. This polish did not go unnoticed when I wore it out. I did get several what color is that questions. Although, when I did say it was from Chanel I got a little of a sad look but said sometimes you just need to treat yourself.
It is good to treat yourself but when I do treat myself it is usually after doing something unusually nice for someone or knowing that I am going to so yeah, do it for yourself and play it forward.
