To Dye For

YSL La Laque Couture Tie & Dye nail polish, £18

Tie Dye can only mean one thing - the 90's are truly back! Tomorrow, YSL launch an innovative three-in-one nail polish in four colours, Cool (watermelon), Pop (pink), Hip (lilac) and Ice (blue).  

The tri-phase nail polishes are composed of three separate layers to create different finishes - clear gloss (on top), sparkle (second) and lastly, the solid colour. For the tie dye look, the brush needs to slide out smoothly and applied straight to the nail creating a gradient effect.  Alternatively, the bottles can be shaken to form a completely different look, which once applied, creates a candy-like finish.

If you want to go for the ultimate 90's look, wear all the colours and textures at once...with matching hair! 

Available 1 May exclusively at Selfridges

Prada Candy L'Eau

I’m a huge Roman Coppola and Wes Anderson (Darjeeling Limited, Moonrise Kingdom) fan, so when I discovered they had teamed up with PRADA to make a 3 part film for the new Candy L'Eau fragrance starring Léa Seydoux, I was trés excited!

Capturing the fun and playful spirit of nouvelle vague cinema, the three films feature Léa Seydoux as ingénue Candy, being wooed by best friends Julius and Gene.

...which one of these big haired Parisian's will she choose?

The fragrance itself is a lighter version of the original Prada Candy which is great news for me because I found it overpowering - it contains white musk, caramel, benzoin, sweet pea and citrus notes . The packaging is the same beautiful art deco bottle as its predecessor, but this time in nude and gold.
I think I’m in love with Candy L'Eau too!
From £50, available exclusively at Selfridges until April 29.
