Today is just a "swatch" post. A couple of weeks back.. I had to make a rather difficult decision to have one of my pet rabbit's put to sleep. It was an awful day, and an awful experience (though the vet and his assistant were absolutely lovely people - so their decency was very appreciated).
She would have been 10 years old in March. It hurt even more because she was born in this house, and now.. she is no longer around.. There is just her brother left from the group of five babies, and, well, there is Bennie, but he doesn't count for anything *grin*
The next day, while scoping out things on the internet.. I came across a site that was selling Chanel Malice.. A colour that I have been wanting ever since seeing a swatch of it.. But I had held off.. until the day after my sweet baby girl's death.. In a moment of absolute weakness, I ordered the polish.
When it arrived, it was a bittersweet moment. Here was a polish that I desperately wanted! Yet to justify my buying it, I was an emotional wreck. I obviously needed to put it on pretty quick.. I wasn't disappointed.
Le. Sigh. It is just exceptional. I wore this all on its own, and I received SO MANY compliments on it.. It is that captivating of a colour..
Yes, it is the most expensive polish I own (hopefully ever.. it was rough realizing what I had paid after escaping my emotion stupor) and I wish that I could say that it wasn't worth the price, that it was horrible formulation, that it was awful.. I'm sorry, my doves, I cannot. This was exquisite in every sense of the word. It applied like a dream (could have been a one coater - but you know meee!!), the brush was great, it dried wicked fast, it wasn't runny or too thick, just a real treat of a nail polish!
Now, I would be happy to add more Chanel to my collection, but it will be pretty difficult to fork about that much cash for a nail polish.. it will have to be pretty special!
Have a great Monday everyone!!
