splurge or spare: the nail polish edition

Soft pinks and pale blush shades are speaking to me this spring–not merely for their ranking as the IN colors of the season, but because I love to look girly.  Nothing unites brushed cheekbones and glossy lips like a little pink power on your fingertips, and thanks to a bit of research, you needn’t work those fingers to the bone just to afford their outerwear.  Chanel’s beautiful Jade Rose 493 from the Le Vernis line is not only a limited edition item, but also rings up at $34.99–not a terrible price for the name brand, but more than many would consider spending on nail adornment.  Fortunately, OPI’s Kiss on the Chic nail lacquer is a mere $4.99 and the color is perfection.  When it comes to bargain-hunting, it really pays to be tough (yes…as nails).

And I would be remiss to neglect a tribute to the timeless Liz Taylor.  Her best role in my book will always be National Velvet.
