Blue is the new black

I've already told you, I've always wanted to work, but because of my age (I'm seventeen) no-one would hire me, you have to be 18 to work here. People are scared to hire people who are underage because if the police finds them they would have to pay a fine. last year I managed myself to earn some money by giving english lessons to my little nephew (daughter of my cousin) once a week, but now she's on vacations, so she doesn't need my help. If i had my own money I'd probably had already bought the chanel blue satin nailpolish. Well, not really, I went asking the other day for it at a local mall and the seller told me that it will come out here in March (it's usually like that, the trends come here three months after it has been released on the US/Europe) and that it would cost me $25. With not much money and no hope to get it before march ( and also before it gets too popular as black nailpolish did), I came to the decision that I would save every penny I got since then.


I know The nailpolish is sold out because I visited the chanel site and it didn't appear on the list anymore. But, I have the solution for all of you guys who are willing to spend over 20 bucks on it (and I'm sure it's worht it), people call it ebay. Buying it online was my second option actually, but the price plus shipping to Peru... ehrm... waaay too expensive. Anyways, you can check the prices here and I think the best option, for nearly $18 is this.

Fortunately, none of those two options were necessary and I'll tell you why. Well, the thing is was walking around some supermarkets, when I saw a little little little Revlon spot (they're always little, they don't have much stuff like mac, whose stores are huge here). Revlon has a new collection called dark pleasures, and there it was a sparkly dark blue nailpolish, it totally reminded me to the chanel's one. I so wanted to get it, so I borrowed $7 from my mother, I told her I would return the money when I have it.



The colour is called midnight affair. On the website's pictures it looks much more clearer than it really is, so I took some pictures of my nailpolish too, although the flash from the camera doesn't help that much. It's crazy, when I'm out it looks lighter and when I'm indoors it looks almost black. The nailpolish is very good, I'm wearing it right now and it really lasts, of course It'll last longer if you apply two coats.


P.S.: As much as I refresh the site, the layout won't show up, i don't know if it has something to do with blogger or with my site. The layout should look like this, doesn't it look like that on your screens? does it even show up? (it doesn't show for me). Help?

Yo no puedo ver ningún layout tampoco :(
Y, ehm... yo siempre hago éso. Cuando estoy sin trabajo (como en estos últimos siete meses, aunque también tengo 17, jeje) busco cosas que se parezcan a cosas que veo en las pasarelas/revistas pero que cuestan una décima parte de la original :P

Por cierto, yo ni siquiera he visto las películas de Pride and Prejudice porque tengo la manía de querer siempre leer los libros primero. Ya pronto lo comenzaré a leer! Jaja.

I got that exact color when I went for a pedicure a while ago. At first I was all disapointed because it looked black, but then I walked home and was looking at my feet and my toes where insainley blue.


Although your header doesn't show up, I saw it on the link you posted. I love it. Hope you can work out the kinks

Hm, no layout pic on my screen. Good luck with that html is mostly beyond me.
I like the dark blue--I couldn't find one I wanted so I had to mix my own awhile back.

Oh I'm such a dork, thought you've reached 18 with the recent birthday, sorry!

Chanel's texture is actually quite good, that's one of the reasons it's priced higher. But Revlon's nail colors are pretty too! Since it's sold out everywhere, I might go to the pharmacy to get the Revlon one, thanks!
