Chanel Fraicheur nail polish review

Chanel Fraicheur limited edition nail polish

Chanel Fraicheur nail polish is a limited edition nail polish color released by Chanel in early fall. This shiny, mint green nail polish hue is playful, and a fun way to transition into fall from late summer.

The shiny mint green color of Chanel Fraicheur blends well with fall 2015’s neutral color palette; as well as autumn’s deep green hues. The pretty color brightens up dark or drab fall attire. Love that!

Chanel Fraicheur nail polish is also a playful color for the last few days of summer this year. It works perfectly with bright summer attire, and offers a contrast to the dark nail polish hues, and blue nail polish shades, which are so “of the moment.”

I tested out Chanel Fraicheur nail polish with one base coat, two coats of color, and one top coat. It lasted eight days before I needed to remove it due to nail growth. Love that!

My top coat deserves some credit for the chip-free test run of Chanel Fraicheur nail polish. It really was the star of the show! My review of this fabulous top coat is online here.

Chanel Fraicheur nail polish is limited edition. It is a great color to wear now, and again, when resort 2016 hits in late December, early January. This beautiful mint green hue will also brighten up a dreary winter day in December, January, or February!

For resort 2016, many designers are showing vivid colors, pastel hues, and muted tones. One of the more popular colors being shown for resort 2016 is mint green. Chanel has also included mint green in the resort 2016 color palette. This makes Chanel Fraicheur nail polish a fabulous color to invest in right now.

Chanel Fraicheur can be found online here.

I rate Chanel Fraicheur five out of five stars! Love!

I indulged in Mansur Gavriel’s new cross body bags. Aren’t they fabulous! I am already a huge fan of their drawstring bags, so I had to take the shoulder bag plunge. Available for pre-order online here.

kendra scott fall 2015 collection rsmasterclass

Earlier in the week I attended a short seminar hosted by RewardStyle and sponsored by Kendra Scott. #rsMasterClass was a great event featuring SEO and web design tips. I also met some fabulous local bloggers.

Kendra Scott’s fall collection is nothing short of amazing. I have already indulged in these bracelets and this pair of earrings. To view the whole fall 2015 collection, please click here.

saratoga view of silicon valley

I am not a runner, but I did go for a run earlier this week. I ended up very sore and unsure running is really a workout for me. Perhaps I should stick to cardio kickboxing, step, swimming, and spin class! This is a picture of the beautiful view of Silicon Valley from the Saratoga hills.

fringe fall booties cute

I bought these cute little booties for fall. I admire them every few days in my closet while waiting for fall weather. Since we don’t get cool weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area until late October, I might be gazing at them for awhile. You can find yourself a pair online here.

chloe faye handbag and kendra scott ring

In case you didn’t already know, I love Kendra Scott jewelry! I also love this little shoulder bag; the Chloe Faye. On this day earlier this month I paired my ring and bag with a black skirt, pink top, and black shoes. Almost a Pink Panther vibe, but thankfully the pink was pale enough to not make the theme song play in the background.

pacthwork skinny jeans denim for fall 2015

I’m getting patchy for fall! I jumped on the patchwork trend for the autumn season with these cute denim skinnies. I cannot wait to wear them! They are in my closet alongside those cute little fringe booties waiting for a cool, autumn day to be worn.

froyo summer fun

We have had quite a few days over 90 here in the San Francisco Bay Area. So, I have been indulging in froyo with my kids. When it comes to froyo, it’s all about the toppings. 😉 Ring online here.

Last week I met my fabulous friend Laura from Have-Need-Want for happy hour at Cin Cin in Los Gatos. I was coming off a stressful few days after my car was rear-ended, and it started to have mechanical problems after the body work was completed. Nothing makes problems seem small like a fun conversation, and the most amazing truffle fries on Earth! Yes, I said truffle fries. Can we say a-ma-zing!!!

I was excited to have an excuse to wear my new blouse from Lush which I purchased for fall, and a pair of flare jeans. The blouse is almost as long as a dress! The length makes the blouse really fun and versatile. So far, I have worn it with flare jeans, as in the photos above, but I also found a great way to wear it in colder weather.

When late fall, and early winter approaches, this blouse by Lush looks amazing with a wool scarf, worn over leggings or skinny jeans, with flare jeans (of course), and paired with cozy boots. Throw a coat on top and it is a casual-yet-put-together look. Love that! I might be addicted to this shirt 😉

I have to rave about these photos too. Laura did a great job! Make sure you check out her website at
