Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is like Christmas in July for me. My hubby and kids know that this is Mommy’s holiday – and it lasts for weeks! Conveniently my wedding anniversary falls doing the dates of the annual sale, allowing me to pick out my own ‘gift’. This arrangement allows my husband to avoid shopping and yet still reap the, er, rewards of generous gift-giving 😀
This year I bought myself hubby gave me Dior Vernis Les Violets Hypnotiques Nail Lacquer collection, currently an exclusive to Nordstrom during the Anniversary Sale. I’m sure they will be available on Dior.com after that.
Les Violets Hypnotiques is a collection of gorgeous purple nail lacquers that were released in Europe in February, then Asia and now the US! If there is anything I love – it’s purple! This collection was made for me!
– Shadow (#783), an intense, shimmering purple. I am in LOVE with this color! Look at that shimmer – all red and purple and rose. *guh*
– Orchid (#981), a sensual, luminous plum. The shimmer is less obvious than in ‘Shadow” but none the less gorgeous.
– Poison (#996), a deeply enchanting purple. So vampy and sexy! This eggplant shade is perfect for when you want something darker but don’t want to go completely ‘goth’ with a black polish.
I had some trouble finding ‘Shadow’ at my local Nordstrom, but these are all available online at Nordstrom.com with free shipping! Unfortunately these are a wee bit pricey ($23) but the formula is unparalleled and the brush is my favorite of any brand. Definitely a special treat.
