This past summer, I was killing time before meeting a friend for drinks and decided to browse around Sephora. Not the greatest idea, since practically every time I step in there I end up purchasing something I hadn’t been expecting to get. That particular trip, I believe ended with my purchasing a shade of Marc Jacobs Enamored Nail Glaze, Daisy to be exact. I purchased something else that day , but I cannot remember what it was. I had been very excited about the Marc Jacob nail polish because it was a new product for him, and because it was named after Daisy from Gatsby, clearly (he also has a shade called Gatsby of which I own as well).
So, I was walking around the store, browsing, and I came across this amazing shade of pink nail polish from Dior Vernis Nail Enamel: Darling (653). Now, not only did I love it because I am a pink girl and it truly is an amazing shade of pink, but I also loved it because of the name. My best friend Melissa and I have been calling each other darling for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure how it started exactly, but of course the name drew me in. I stood there for a few minutes, contemplating the purchase but ultimately left the store without it. For the longest time I had been a strictly Essie girl, and I could not justify spending $24 on one bottle of nail polish no matter how perfect a shade of pink it was.
Fast forward a few months to my most recent Sephora trip. I was in desperate need of mascara, of which I use Dior Extase, and so upon my entrance into the store, I knew that I would be back in the vicinity of that beloved nail polish color. I convinced myself that if they did still have it, I would purchase it because really, at that point of course I was meant to own it. After procuring my mascara – Dior really makes the best mascara – I glanced at the nail polish and, there was Darling, sitting there waiting for me. I scooped it up immediately and rushed to the register…the line was atrociously long but seemed to move quickly enough.
I have not used it yet, but very soon my nails will be inhabited by this beautiful shade of pink!
