|Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Pirate - £16.50|
I own many different reds, all with slight variations in shade or finish, but to get a real thirties feel, I chose Chanel's Pirate, what I would class as a true red. It is a perfect match to the Chanel lipstick in Pirate I posted about last week.
It gives a gorgeous finish in just 2 coat and I instantly feel more elegant having applied it, even as I sit here in my pyjamas!

I am not a big fan of reds in summer, but with the gale force winds we had today in Kent, for me, summer has officially finished and I am fully embracing autumn and the colours that go with it. I have naturally very fair skin and I love the way the contrast of the bright red of Pirate sets this off. I would class this as a neutral to cool red as a more orange toned red would not produce this effect.
Chanel Le Vernis in Pirate is available nationwide or online at http://www.debenhams.com/, http://www.boots.com/ or http://www.garden.co.uk/ for £16.50.
