A shade for all seasons

Lacquer up for the upcoming wintry months

September is a time to embrace the new season with all its promise whilst musing fondly over holiday memories. Spring / summer fashions are stored away till next year in favour of novel autumn / winter sartorial offerings.

Bearing this concept in mind, consider my personal seasonal shades: “Kismet” by Nars for the summer gone by, a burnished mimosa frenzy; versus my must-have polish for the new season, “Peridot” by Chanel, a beautiful melange of green and gold designed to mimic the eponymous stone:
