|My first and last color choice on this post. I know, no guts, no glory, but I cannot have green or yellow finger or toe nails — they would make me sick. Literally.|
“Lite” meaning not only zero calories, but also not much substance. I’m counting on the entertainment factor as opposed to the “value-added” aspect I try to include every day.
Let’s see how it goes shall we?
While perusing the latest nail colors for my impending pedicure I came across the yellow and frankly yucky green hue from Bourjois. As you know, Bourjois is Chanel except much less expensive, usually a season or two behind in the hyper trendy colors (except this summer for some reason) and sometimes, but not always, a nuanced tinge of difference in the tone. I don’t think even Anna Wintour could call you out as an impostor (i.e., Bourjois, not Chanel) once the polish was on one’s nails and the bottle safely hidden in your salle de bains.
It’s not that I was waiting for a lower price point to get in on the green and yellow, but I’m just mentioning this as a news bulletin in passing.
|As you can see, Chanel was more ambitious in the green family. Perhaps the Bourjois melange was a reject.|
Then, to save us the time, trouble and possible accidents that could result from playing artist, Bourjois and Chanel also introduced a turquoise — you know if you mixed the yellow and the green you’d get approximately that color. You knew that.
Now that I think of it, this might indeed be a genuine value-added day.
