A chocolatey manicure with four new Clinique A Different Nail Enamel colors

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

After the success of my ‘Belgian chocolate’ look from last week I decided to keep the chocolate theme alive a little longer with a Belgian chocolate manicure. What can I say, what the heart loves the will chooses… Or in this case the mouth eats. I was inspired by my favorite Belgian chocolates, the chocolate sea shells from Guylian, and I used four tasty new colors from the Clinique A Different Nail Enamel collection to create a chocolatey manicure. Have a look!

Room Service is a creamy vanilla shade, Peek A Boo I See You is a soft nude beige, Pajama Party is a light caramel brown, and Chocolate On My Pillow is a beautiful chocolate brown with a hint of golden shimmer.

Don’t they look delicious? All four colors look good enough to eat*! These aren’t my first Clinique A Different Nail Enamel nail lacquers, so I knew what to expect from Room Service, Peek A Boo I See You, Pajama Party and Chocolate On My Pillow. All four colors are 100% hypoallergenic, provide even and full coverage in two and often just one coat, and have a fantastic longevity. The Clinique A Different Nail Enamel nail polishes really are top quality, a lot like Belgian chocolate actually ;-)
* I advise you not to. Empty calories and all.

In Switzerland all Clinique A Different Nail Enamel nail lacquers retail at 26 CHF.

What do you think of the new Clinique A Different Nail Enamel colors? Have you tried Guylian chocolate yet*?
* if you haven’t, do it, NOW!

  3. Die chocolaatjes ben ik niet zo dol op, die nagellakjes daarentegen…. heel erg leuk! Ook de combinatie. Ik heb van Clinique eigenlijk van alles gebruikt, maar nooit de nagellak.

    Love this manicure! Have you ever tried one of those water marble manis? I bet if you used these colours you could *actually* get a Guylian seashell effect on your nails! :-D
