notd: diy matte khaki

9 September 2010

Easily my new favourite colour, I think khaki has been taking over the world slightly in recent months. I have been looking for a khaki like nail varnish for quite a while and of course Chanel, Eyeko and a few other companies are releasing shades but they are either not yet out or just have yet to reach my city.

And so I took matters into my own hands and mixed one up for myself inside an empty Benefit sample pot. I used mainly Collection 2000 Hot Looks Mint Mojo with a few drops of Barry M Grey until it became the shade I was after.

I think bare, with no top coat this shade looks fab. It's not too much and work well with no shimmer. I then popped Rimmel's Matte Finish over my diy khaki as an experiment. It works exactly as khaki should, a dull not overwhelming shade that appears even sexier matte. Definitely a new favourite. I'm a little reluctant to try the Chanel and Eyeko shades when they're released as I love my creation so much :)

So what do you think? Will you being giving this a go for your perfect Khaki or holding out for the new releases?
