A 5'3 Perspective

Manicure Monday

Now that the holidays are in full force, I think it is time to pull out all the stops! Today I want to share with you my favourite new holiday nail colour – Chanel’s Malice. Released as part of the 2012 Holiday line, this colour is not for the faint of heart, it is a deep, deep vampy red, with lots of shimmer. Reminds me of a glass of merlot – packs a punch but is still smooth!

This polish paints like a dream, if you’re rushing out the door to get to a holiday party – you can get away with just one coat. Adding a second coat intensifies the ruby shimmer and richness of the colour. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to make it past three day without minor chips at the top, but I suspect my top coat has something to do with that. Either way this colour is just too incredible to pass up – plus if you’re anything like me, you’ll change your polish after three days anyways!

I love how Malice pairs with other holiday colours. Here is a picture of my holiday nails thus far. Keep in mind it is only the 10th of December, there will be more to come soon!
