Released as part of Chanel’s spring 2009 Bohemian Fantasy collection, Vendetta is a vampy dark purple. The bluish-purple micro-shimmer is hard to photograph but it makes this polish a real stealth stunner. It took me a while to be convinced to buy it – it looked a bit too close to black at first – but, boy, I’m glad I did. It’s such a sexy, sophisticated colour.
I decided to pair Vendetta with one of my favourite statement pieces, my chartreuse BCBG skirt. But why stop there? Why not make an entire outfit out of statement pieces? Leopard print top, blingy necklace, and sky high heels – oh my!
I don’t wear a lot of costume jewelry anymore, but how could I resist this fun, sparkly piece from Plaid Giraffe? Thanks to my BFF for picking up this beauty for me last Christmas!
After a couple of days, I decided to have a little fun with my manicure, and jazz it up with a sparkly top coat of Orly Fowl Play – a purple-based jelly with purple, gold and pink glitter. I love the results!
