Velvet Voyeur





Here is Velvet Voyeur from Essie's Fall 2010 Collection of nail polishes. "Intense chocolate amethyst" is how the company describes it on their website and they meant it. It looks more eggplant-colored in the bottle, but after you apply the second coat, it does get very dark chocolate crossed with purple. It's gleaming and dramatic and without shimmer, and looks great against navy blue, purple (all shades), dark denim and black, all of which I wore last weekend since it finally felt like fall.

Essie polishes are $8 on their website but I found this one for $5.99 at my local beauty supply store on Fulton Street.

And, for those of you who noticed, in the third picture, on the left hand side, is the lovely French actress Catherine Deneuve in a black trench, sitting atop a Louis Vuitton trunk.

I bet she'd wear Velvet Voyeur.
