This is just a quick post in a similar vein to my previous one about Chanel’s colour of the moment ‘Particulière’, as their latest must-have, sold-out-everywhere shade is 'Nouvelle Vague', a gorgeous, turquoise, summery shade. Unfortunately for my bank balance, I’m not sensible enough to feel that £16.50 is a bit much to spend on nail varnish, but thankfully this limited edition is sold out everywhere, so I had to look elsewhere – and I’m so glad that I did!
‘For Audrey’ from China Glaze (RRP around £6.50) is named as such because it is based on Tiffany’s signature colour (the link there if you can’t work it out is Audrey Hepburn – Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and the colour is almost identical! The only difference, and I do prefer the Chanel for this reason, is that For Audrey doesn’t have the same subtle metallic shimmer to it as Nouvelle Vague does, but the colour is pretty much identical and the quality of the lacquer is lovely to apply.
Secret Beauty verdict: Almost identical colour and for a fraction of the price, although the shimmer of Chanel’s does win slightly!
