Black iris nails for Paris

In the morning, I’m off to Paris. With the girls (I know).

It’s a whistlestop visit, hastily arranged when Eurostar sent an irresistible special offer my way, but any time at all in Paris is fine by me.

I wanted very special nails for the occasion, and decided to splash out on some of the good stuff. The Estee Lauder AW12 Limited Edition collection was conjured up by creative make up director Tom Pecheux – and he took his inspiration from (you guessed it) Gay Paris.

A fan of dark colours, I plumped for Black Iris, the deepest shade of red, like, ever. My nail guy not only appreciated the shade, he also said Estee Lauder is The Best. And he should know.

Paris, here we come.
