Happiness in little bottles.

Filed under: Uncategorized — blindcopy @ 12:16 am

There is the era before Chanel’s Particuliere and the era after Chanel’s Particuliere. Before – I used to leave my nails plain, without polish or – at the max – I had them nude/natural beige coloured, sometimes French. On my feet I’ve been a little more daring – a decent dark red would do it.

After I discovered Chanel’s Particuliere in a magazine on Chloe Sevigny’s nails I desperately needed a brownish/greyish nail varnish. I tried a couple but none of them looked like Chanel’s Particuliere – which was sold out everywhere. I finally got it at a Duty Free Shop at Duesseldorf International Airport.  It doesn’t look as good on my hands as it does on model hands in magazines, but it triggered the urge in me to get more colours. So I’ve extended my little collection and added Chanel’s Lotus Rouge, Gold Lame and a varnish which name or number I forgot by YSL. And I’m happy, it’s silly. I enjoy only looking at the little bottles, and I wanted to take some artsy pictures. But this is not possible with the two cats around…

After the first bottle fell to the floor – Feia gave it a little push – I had to collect the polish…

Aaaaawwwwwwww… 🙂


  1. it had to be Feia to give the push, by the way. naughty cat 😉

  2. I totally understand that a Chanel nail polish can add to your happiness; and after reading your post I will be VERY tempted to pick up a nice Particuliere colour when I’m at the airport next time.

  3. Haha your cats are so cute! Chanel Particuliere is a very nice color but I’m not willing to pay Chanel prices for nail polish. I use a similar color from OPI called “over the taupe” and it’s a nice substitute though maybe not as soft as Particuliere. You have a nice collection, I love Gold Lame!

  4. i’m addicted to chanel nailpolish (black satin/pedi), and to be honest chanel packaging is so good imo, it gives additional push to keep buying… 😉
