Nail Polish

Always Organizing asked about my pedicure color. Its called Particulière and is made by Channel. My manicurist has a client who works for Channel, so I lucked out and got to wear this on my fingers and toes! Normally, I wear You Don't Know Jacques by OPI. It is an extremely close match, but the Channel color is slightly more taupe colored and a little bit lighter. I love this color because its nice for Winter (not too dark....I think I'm over that!), yet transitions nicely into Spring. This was my last pedicure with a Wintery before I switch to pinks for the Summer. I love having my nails done! Sometimes it can be a pain to find time to schedule a manicure, but its always worth it! I can be having a terrible day and feel lousy, but if my nails are done, I feel a bit better. I should say its one of my indulgences to visit the nail salon weekly. Though, in college I pretty much always gave myself manicures. I think its a nice way to look put together even when you don't feel put together!

Oh I just adore it! Perfectly neutral and a nice change from pale pink. Thank you for sharing! Chanel makes the best polish colors, always something a little different & unique!

lady girl, I believe too! life is just so much more efficent and better with nice looking nails. I think it's a little sign to the universe that if you are that detail oriented, that you can take on whatever it throws at you!

I wear You Don't Know Jacques all the time. You're right, it does transition nicely. Plus, it goes with any color. Love it!

I wore Smitten with Mittens on my toes a lot this winter. Great red color with some glitter. :)

I just had my "spring" toes done on Friday. Switching back to pinks and corals. So excited to have some nice weather. Having my toes done makes me just feel better.

Oh wow..that color looks great on you! I bought a similar color from OPI for Sephora but it wasn't nearly as pretty. It made me look like I had zombie hands..haha! I'll have to pick the Chanel or OPI one up now since it looks so much better. Great post! xoxo
