Chanel Orange Fizz <3

I have been lusting over the Orange Fizz nail polish by Chanel for a few weeks, and came close to paying the $50 the department stores were asking for it. But in the end, I couldn't justify such a purchase...not for a cosmetic anyway..

Yesterday I got home and found a small box with the familiar logo on it, on top of a piece of paper that simply read 'I love you'. The boy, returning from his offshore stint in vietnam, had remembered me pining over it and, faced with a Chanel assistant at the airport who did not speak english, pawed through drawers of nail polish until he found it. It was such a lovely surprise! And at $20 USD from duty free, a bargain.

Apologies for the chips and shoddy application; that's what you get for being so excited that you forget to turn on a light while applying, and a job that means you can't have perfect polish for even one day.


  1. Oh, what a sweetheart!
    Yes, I've been to NYC a couple of times now. First time I enjoyed it but didn't really want to go back. But I went back to visit a boy and this time LOVED it. It may have had something to do with him though...

  2. That's so sweet of him! It's a lovely colour, too.

  3. Oh wow, what a sweetheart your boy is...bless!
    And that colour is phenomenal!!! I'm looking for a cheaper version as well....and can you believe how much Myers and David Jones charge for these things (more than bloody double)?!!?!?!

    Hope you've had a good week thus far...cannot wait for Friday! Closer and closer to Christmas, hey ;)

  4. That colour goes really nicely with your hair.
    Ahaha, I know it's a weird observation but I was looking at the first photo and the blonde and the peachy/orange look gorgeous together.

    Grah, that is so incredibly sweet for your guy to do that for you :) I am jealous!

  5. That colour looks really nice on you, lucky girl! I recently won an AA nail polish that looks just like this :D Can't wait for it to arrive x Sushi

  6. Gorgeous colour! And your boy is so sweet:)
