Nail of the day! This is one of my favourite reds, I've had it for many years. And what better to do the dots with than my current favourite nail art polish, Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Lychee. I like an irregular pattern of dots, and I was thinking about the Fly Agaric fungus (Amanita muscaria) as I was painting this!

It's two coats of Rouge Flamboyant, which is semi jelly. I bought this shade more than 15 years ago (it was my second ever Chanel polish - after I got Rouge Noir, I decided I wanted a classic red too), and it's discontinued now. I just googled the colour to be sure that it IS discontinued, and there is a bottle for sale on ebay at a ludicrous price. I really don't get this - it's just a red nail polish, why on earth would anyone think it would be worth $100?

I bought Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Lychee from my local Boots earlier this year, and it's become one of my go-to shades for nail art. I like wearing it on it's own too.
