Keira Knightley’s Simple Skincare Choices & Nail Polish Addiction

British actress Keira Knightley has revealed that she’s addicted to nail polish and uses it as a way to rebel against her work because she spends weeks at a time being in character. When she’s finally after wrapping up a role, she likes to pick a bright or random new shade for her nails and paint them, although she didn’t like the last colour she picked:

 ”During filming I am carefully made-up for weeks, so at the end of every film I love to go out and buy nail polish in the most absurd colours and paint my nails with them. Last time I chose yellow – which I don’t recommend. I looked like I and nicotine-stained fingers. I won’t repeat the yellow experience, but you can count on me to find an even crazier shade next time.”

Keira is the current face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle and says she has always loved the famous Parisian fashion house’s perfumes because her grandmother used to wear their most famous scent:

 ”My grandmother wore Chanel No. 5 and a friend once gave me a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle. Until then, I had never worn women’s fragrances because I found them too sweet or floral. Suddenly, people were stopping me in the street to ask what perfume I was wearing. I was really proud.”

Opening up on her skincare choices, Keira says she can’t live without a special dry skin cream she has sourced from Australia and a few other basics: ”A cream for dry skin from Australia, a moisturising lotion and a Chanel eye pencil.”
