In my manic tidy up before we left for holiday I tidied up my favourite Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc Bamboo White nail polish and I just couldn’t find it before we left for France! I had hoped the shop at Eurotunnel would have the AW15 Chanel nail polishes in but no Chanel makeup anymore just perfume – boo! I hate having bare nails so the first thing I did when I arrived at our final destination was nail polish shopping! I really wanted the dark green Chanel colour but they didn’t appear to have any of the new collection in and no other Chanel colour really popped out at me.
After a long browse the YSL counter was a calling and a bright yellow polish called Jaune Babouche caught my attention. I’m a big fan of the Chanel Mimosa polish but this YSL shade is a real solid bold colour that works with a tan but it’s almost mustard in colour which makes it feel quite autumnal too, its very different from Mimosa. I didn’t have any topcoat with me and I didn’t bother to buy any so I was impressed with the YSL staying power, it easily went 4 to 5 days without any signs of wear.

After chatting to the assistant in my bad French and her ok-ish English I discovered there was 25% off if I bought another YSL product, as I’m a sucker for a discount I also bought the Beige Gallery grey polish. I haven’t tried the grey shade yet, but I will report back when I do.
