3 favorites

Three current favorites:

1. Estée Lauder’s Nail Lacquer in So Vain. A nice nudepink nail polish that is launching in March.

2. Anja Rubik’s perfect, PERFECT coat! Where can I find this beauty?

3. And my new Sandro velvet trousers, found at a very reasonable price at the sales here. I will wear them at night with heels and to work with a dark blue cashmere sweater.

Shellac

Since I’ve moved to Berlin I’ve been doing Shellac every other week. Shellac is a nail polish that is dried under UV light and lasts much longer than a regular nail polish. Much longer. My nails are thin and unhappy and regular polishes rarely looks nice more than 2 days. At the same time it is not as thich as the gel that I tried previously when I lived in Stockholm. For me the Shellac looks perfect for up to two weeks, and it’s such a relief to not have to do your nails every other day. I’ve found a little place near my apartment where I can get it done for 15 EUR (!!). Perfection in 35 min. The only downside is that there aren’t too many nice colors to choose from, no Chanel-ish hues. It’s more black, red, burgundy or taupe. Basta. But it works! And I highly recommend it.
