I wanted to do one last sparkly holiday red before Christmas, although this one is different from the ones I’ve worn in weeks past. Chanel Gondola (Venice Collection, Fall 2009) is a rich maroon shimmer with red microglitter:
Picture taken in natural light. This applied very well, it was actually opaque in one coat but two coats really gives the color a lovely depth. I really like the way Chanel does their shimmers. When the microglitter in this catches the light it really sparkles. And this vampy red is a nice break from all the classic red hues I’ve been wearing all month. I paired this with OPI Glamour Game on my toes.
Not only do I love this polish, I love its name! I absolutely LOVE Venice:
That’s a picture of me in Piazza San Marco. Venice is such a beautiful place. The bridges and canals and the architecture were truly a sight. And, of course, the gondola ride (with champagne ;)) was awesome. Probably the only thing I didn’t like was the obscene amount of pigeons. But I came home with lots of memories and souvenirs! 😀
