Nail polish classic: Chanel's Holiday

If you're looking for a classic, show-stopping red nail polish to add to your collection, I would advise you look no further than Chanel's Holiday.

If it were just a little more orange, it would be tacky; a touch redder and it would lose its playfulness. As it is, it incarnates its name perfectly - I can imagine it, for example, being worn at boat parties in the Mediterranean in high summer.  Whenever I wear it, it reminds me of the celebrated campaign for Revlon's "Fire and Ice" lipstick - that oranged-tinged red is so associated with 1950s beauty.

And while I'm not quite Dorian Leigh (the stunning model from the Revlon campaign), Holiday still adds a touch of old-school glamour to my everyday life - and it elicits a lot of compliments.

Do tell me about your favourite classic red polish!
