To accompany Karl Lagerfeld's stunning Paris-Bombay mash-up show back in December, Chanel have recently launched an exotic, gorgeously opulent metallic make up collection called Bombay Express. Designed by Peter Philips, this Limited Edition range conjures up 'a specific vision of India', incorporating the lavishness of 'princesses', 'jasmine' and opulent 'Maharajas'
The sumptuous New nail polish called Diwali (£18) instantly caught my eye, a gorgeous pale vintage gold/silver that's named after the traditional Indian festival of lights. Easy and quick to apply this streakless shimmering metallic colour, glimmers in gold or silver depending on the angle your fingers capture the light. Such a beautifully clean colour that goes with any complexion, as unlike some more yellow toned golds such as last years Peridot, it isn't too rich for pale skin tones. Diwali is most certainly a must this summer to brighten up your day and has just worked its magic on my slightly scathed post flower arranging fingers.
The Limited Edition Bombay Express collection is available exclusively in Chanel boutiques, Harrods and Selfridges
