Car Polish?

Those of you who follow me on twitter may be aware of my recent obsession. I've been trying to find a nail polish that matches my car. Normally this would be an easy feat, surely? Well as some of you may know, my car is a pretty special colour and I've searched high and low for a polish that could potentially match my prized motor.

Well... I may have found it!

One of my lovely friends on Facebook let me know about Nails Inc. 'Franklin's Row' polish, which looked like this online:

Promising...

When I finally got my mitts on this shade I was not dissapointed!


It's almost the perfect shade! It is slightly on the dark side, and would be an even closer match if it had a little more pink and bronze in the mix, but it's definitely the best I've found so far!


It was lovely to apply too and the colour is so pretty on the nails - LOVE it! You can pick it up on Nailsinc.com for £11.

On a side note, thank you so much for everyone who's sent me their suggestions for a matching polish since I mentioned it - I've been inundated with tweets, comments, messages and emails from you all I feel really quite overwhelmed! And an extra special thanks to Zara, who tracked this one down!

  3. Oh, I'm so glad for you! This has inspired me to start looking for a matching color for my new Camry. ;]

    (Not quite as challenging a task, but fun nonetheless! Perhaps we could get an online dictionary going for car-to-nail colors...)

    You lucky Brits, having all of these gorgeous duochromes to yourselves. :'[

  8. HAHA! I thought that this was a weird, random post until I actually saw the colour of your car! No wonder why you want a matching nail polish. I might get myself a few Franklin's Rows and start painting my own car...

  12. This is a second car that i've seen with duochrome color. First was on CSI Miami I think. Great choice - looks unique and stands out. Maybe you should take one more color and make a gradient on your nails - so it would match your car color better...

  28. Hi Fleur :)

    I read your blog and watch your videos, and I absolute love it! I get a lot of tips and ideas from watching you, and even though I'm from Norway, I knew exactly what to look for when i was in London a couple months ago. But i didn't get to track down a good fundation. I have one from Topshop, but must be honest and say that it is not the best I've tried so far. Very thin and did not cover much. During the night or day it kind of disapears completely.

    I know that you love your Chanel fondation, but do you have more fondations to recommend? Can you make a video so that we can see the coverage and so on? Would be nice!
