I don't know if it's the currently rainier weather or the fact that it feels like summer is almost over when in fact it has just begun, that made me choose a darker shade for this week's manicure. Maybe it's also the fact that I got this Elissance nail polish in another Pochette de Janette and wanted to try it immediately because I knew it would become one of my favourite shades for autumn/winter. Whatever it is, I'm now running around with this dark bluish purple on my nails and I love the shade!
As for Elissance it's yet another cosmetic brand I didn't know before but the nail polishes are definitely worth giving a try. The brush is fan-shaped, which was a bit irritating at the beginning but turned out to be useful nevertheless, and the nail polish dried in no time, I think it might even top Essie! Also the 7ml bottles are currently sold for 4,69€ online in case you want to give this smokey shade n°9 a try.
