This week I know will be a challenge. With a tough week ahead with lots of critical business meetings, this weeks #SundayNails had to be one that was quietly confident. Nude, yet with a shimmer of underlying beauty.

What else could offer this but CHANEL? So I turned to a firm favourite of mine. CHANEL Quartz. This understated hue is not gold or beige, it’s the embodiment of much more. In some lights shimmery yet not at all glittery. It’s understated yet unique. The perfect go-to shade to feel that you can nail the day.

Quartz, the mineral, might be one of the most abundant on earth but it makes it no less unique and universally important. From gemstone to glassmaking it’s uses are both beautiful and impactful.

I am also celebrating the welcome return of Deborah Lippmann nail varnishes to the UK this week by happily using her rehydrating base coat today. I can’t wait to stock up on more of her shades!

What nail shade makes you feel confident?
