Chanel Spring 2012: June 539 Nail Color

Chanel June (539) Nail Color Swatches
Even though its been a mild winter so far, I can't wait for "official" Spring but I'm taking the Spring like weather and loving every bit of it. I wanted to switch up my nail color too, I've been wearing Black Satin and thinking about something lighter, peppier, maybe it can lift my spirits and boost some creativity and into the nail box I went. I purchased June back in December but left it at the bottom of my drawer but then I was reminded of its color after a quick run through Macy's yesterday. So I decided to give it a try and I love the color! June is an opaque bright milky coral that complements my skin-tone nicely. I just can't wait to break out with my warmer gear but until then I have perkiness nailed!

Valentine's day lipstick: Poppy King for J.Crew

Poppy King for J.Crew Swatch
Happy Valentine's day! I had a time trying to figure out what lipsticks I wanted to post for Valentine's day. I have a host of red lipsticks that range from bourdoir deep crimson to some that are borderline orange! But I had Poppy King for J.Crew's lipstick sitting on my dresser for about 2 weeks after I purchased it at the store closest to Union Square in NYC.  The color description mentions coral on but I find this lipstick only has a hint of the coral tone and resonates more on the red side. Great try with the coral! 

What's your valentine's day lipstick?
