Happy Chocolate-bunnies-and-marshmallow-peeps Day! While pastel Easter eggs are no doubt pretty, sometimes I get sick of pastels. So, today, I am bringing you swatches of two Chanel polishes in non-pastel blues. (One of them makes a cute boy-baby shower gift, so I guess there’s that for a Easter link! Rebirth and all that.)
First up is Blue Boy, which is an adorable idea for someone who’s expecting a boy. Unfortunately, its formula is kind of appalling for the price.

I came across a new-to-me brand of natural nail polish while browsing my favorite online drugstore (my referral link) and picked up a bottle when it was on sale.
I’m not generally swayed by sweeping cosmetic claims of being “all-natural” and “chemical-free” (um, what?) and similar, but hey, the color looked pretty online! To their credit, Scotch Naturals only claim to be free of “harsh chemicals”, though they are not too specific about what those are.
While the lacquer doesn’t have the typical strong “nail polish” smell, it does have an odor which reminds me a little of paint (albeit the water-based type).
The packaging is quite pretty: a slim, curved rectangular bottle with clean lines. I think it’s one of the nicest nail polish bottles I’ve seen in a while! It just makes me want to collect all the pastels!

Collection: Zoya Spring 2011, Intimate Normally I shudder at the thought of wearing pastels, but this one kind of is and kind of isn’t. Caitlin is a soft, greyed blurple creme. It goes more periwinkle under indoor light, and a bit more denim blue in the sun. My kind of Easter color. Perfect Zoya application.
