Thinking about spring nail polish, the wonderful colours available and I was reminded of one of the sweetest French movies.
Populair; did you see it?
“Populaire“, tells the story of a young secretary, Rose (Déborah François) who is trained by her boss (Romain Duris) to become the fastest typist in the world. The film sees her progress from a wide-eyed dreamer into a celebrity as she is launched into stardom.
This chic fifties French romantic comedy is the debut feature film by director Regis Roinsart, and features fabulous costume design and styling by Charlotte David – think pretty pin tuck dresses, perfectly coiffed hair and colourful nails.
Back to the nails,
Nail polish has re-invented itself over the last few years. It is more adventurous, more fun and certainly more creative. Once restricted to shades of pink, red and orange; nails are now every colour of the rainbow.
Pastels it is.
This weekend it will be another viewing of Populaire and a new shade of nails; prelude to a kiss perhaps… xv
