an investment, or just plain frivolous?
:Pricey at $28:
As I stood at Holt’s hypnotized by their array of pretty Chanel nail colours I had the following conversation in my head:
Smart me: $30 nail polish…really? Is that necessary?
Stupid me: Of course it is…it’s Jade Rose. You’ve been wanting it for a while.
Smart me: But really, I’m sure OPI or Essie has a similar colour. Look at all the faux Paradoxals out there.
Stupid me: They might, but imitation is never as good as the original. And it’s perfect for spring…
Smart me: So true, so true…If I don’t get a manicure all month, I’ll break even…
Stupid me: Exactly.
Smart me: $30 nail polish…really?
Stupid me: Do it.
It seems even the best of us fall victim to our worst half. So I left Holt’s, with two bottles of Chanel polish. And in case you couldn't guess the answer? Chanel polish is no better than OPI or Essie - it doesn't last longer, it doesn't have special powers, it's just C-h-a-n-e-l. It seems I have issues, but don’t we all?
