For an extra twist, the polish is rose-scented; I cannot say I am a fan of that, although luckily I am not allergic to fragrances. The scent reminded me of Anna Sui polishes (all of which are rose-scented, and more heavily so), but thankfully did not last more than a day. The application was smooth and the polish was easily opaque in two coats. I may have been spoilt by my previous experience of Chanel’s April, but I didn’t find Waterlily to dry as glossy as I would have liked. I would probably add a top coat next time for a bit of extra shine.
This week, I decided to take a brief departure from Chanel to showcase – what else – one of Dior’s spring 2012 colours. From its Garden Party collection, the appropriately named Waterlily is a soft, spring-like green swirling with ribbons of micro-shimmer.
Outfit-wise, I decided to go with a bit of contrast – purple! I love purple/green combos; they’re so unexpected. And it gave me a reason to pull out one of my favourite tops, this silk MICHAEL Michael Kors halter. Because of the embellishment on the collar, I normally keep my accessories to a minimum, but I couldn’t resist adding some flash this time.
For an extra pop of colour: yellow!
