My husband has declared that I have finally gone completely mad after he saw me trying to coordinate the paint on our dining room wall with my new nail polish. I think its he who just doesn’t get it – after all, who else understands colour better than makeup companies, who have spent some crazy amounts of time and money researching hues, textures and how different shades work in different kinds of light. Right?
And the make up I was trying to match was from Dolce & Gabbana’s new Bouquet collection, which you have to agree is simply the final, defining word on powdery, pastel-y gorgeousness. Just take a look at the shades and tell me, wouldn’t the lilac and aqua blue nail polishes make a lovely and refreshing backdrop for some Caprese salad, black truffle capellini, a bruschetta dressed with fresh olive oil and a bottle of chilled prosecco?
After all, it’s not like I am trying to paint the walls in the intense yellow or olive green of the eye pencil – that I am simply reserving for my dressing table. Husbands, I tell you – simply no imagination!
Do you think I am being a little mad?
