In my research, I chanced upon polishaddict.com, a virtual library of different brands and shades of varnishes. I read through her top 20 shades for 2008 and one particularly stood out to me, Kaleidoscope by Chanel. I’m not a huge nail polish person, but the sparkly metallic really popped out for me (yes, blingly, but I love it). It also reminded me of the MINX nails that I saw in the recent April Vogue. Minx nails are coverings that “won’t chip, because they’re made of film” and “won’t damage since they’re chemical free”. Plus No Drying Time. How awesome is that?! It sounds all wonderful and dandy. However, according to the minx nails website, only a dozen salons have this product available in NY State. Now, you know that means exorbitant prices, which sucks big time :P. Now, back to varnishes…Kaleidoscope, is sadly not availabe in the US. But it is available on ebay at 34.95 + $5 shipping = $40 for nail polish! Rather luxurious nail polish. Is it worth it? That, I’m not so sure, but I am tempted. Fortunately, polishaddict offers some alternatives.
