|Chanel Rouge Noir - £16.50|
For once I am actually not exaggerating, the guy took over 20 attempts to try to fix a wire to a bracket on my tooth, 20 very painful attempts while the nurse silently looked on in disbelief. Then he told me I was a very patient patient, I was not amused. Unfortunately I have to have my teeth done at a training hospital and even though the man I see is near retirement age (still a trainee), he is totally incompetent. Luckily he is leaving so that is my last encounter with him. I never complain because my plan is to get the appointments over and done with as quickly as possible and I don't want to annoy someone who is armed with pliers and has access to my mouth, but I am in angry letter writing mode so we'll see.
Anyway, enough about teeth and more about nails. As part of my 'Dark Side' series of posts, what other colour could I have picked than Rouge Noir by Chanel? Made famous by Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, this is an iconic polish. As the name suggests, the colour is a deep blackened red.
I haven't worn it for ages but once I had it on I realised how much I love it. It is a magical colour in that it seems to go with everything and is effortlessly glamorous. My nails are getting a bit long at the moment and I was afraid that with this colour it could make them look a little severe, but I think it works (I normally prefer my nails short with dark colours).
I don't have the Chanel Rouge Noir Lipstick so I can't say how similar the two colours are (I'm guessing they should be exactly the same). If anyone does have the lipstick, can you give me an idea of how dark it is? It has been on my wish list for a couple of years but I always get a little scared and wonder if I'll really use it, hence why it is still on the list and not in my makeup bag!
