I don’t know if gold is your color but if it is, CHANEL makes the best gold shadow and gold shimmer polish on the planet!  Not that I’d wear my gold polish with a black french tip– it’s too dragon lady creepy for someone my age but if you’re under 30, go for it!   NOIR ET OR Paris-Shanghai is a glamorous fantasy of Shanghai in the 30’s and 40’s as Coco Chanel herself may have imagined it but be careful when you use it as sometimes fantasy does not translate well in real life.
