We had some sunny and warm weather here in Rome on Saturday (only to get slammed with more rain yesterday, today, and apparently for the next three days).
On Saturday all the outdoor cafes were packed. Everyone was rocking their sunnies and most of the heavy winter coats were packed away. Of course, some Signore insisted in wearing their furs as it’s only mid-March.
During the Winter I give my nails a break. With the change in weather, it’s time for a professional mani/pedi.
My favorite neutral is Chanel’s Ballerina.
This color looks great on almost any skin tone. That’s one reason why so many manicurists and beauty editors rave about it. Another reason is the quality. Yes, it’s more expensive than the drugstore brands, but the polish doesn’t streak, lasts a long time, and is formaldehyde-free, toluene-free, and DBP-free.
One coat is very sheer. Two coats gives you a little more pink, but not too pink. It’s a sophisticated, yet fun color.
I know many people like to wear outrageous colors on their hands. For me, it’s not practical. On my hands, I like to keep it simple and stylish. Ballerina is everything.
