I have been so busy with work and life in general, that stopping to get a manicure has been impossible.
But here is something that will probably get me to a nail salon very soon: Chanel's Blue Satin Nail Polish.
This color is plastered on every magazine and on every other beauty blog! And my will power has been fighting for too long and is now defeated: I want one.
But here comes the tricky part.
See, a Chanel's nail polish is kind of expensive to begin with, at $19 a pop. But this color is now sold out, and the vultures are out on eBay selling it even for $50, which is ridiculous!
Is it possible that Chanel is the only brand that can produce this color? I've seen blue nail polish in the past, but most of the time it was unwearable. But maybe now, after the blue satin phenomenon, we might be able to find something very similar in another brand, and that won't cost us a fortune.
This one from OPI looks like it could be a close match.
The closest one from Essie is Aruba Blue.
And the closest thing at the local drugs store is Revlon in Midnight Affair.
Unfortunately, the only way to compare these colors to the original I am lusting after is to try them all, including the blue satin, which means going out and buying the blue satin anyway, which means I've just defeated the purpose of this whole post... oh well... who am I to argue logic?
