Though winter has well and truly arrived here in Melbourne, I can’t help but feel bright and cheery when looking at the new nail polish releases from the Chanel Summer 2014 Make Up Collection – Reflets D’Été!
I picked up 3 of the 5 shades in the collection and I must say they are hot, hot, hot! My picks were Sweet Lilac, Pink Tonic and Mirabella, and they are currently sitting among my all time favourite Chanel Le Vernis shades. Big call I know, but look at them! Way too pretty!
All three shades have a glossy cream finish with a subtle shimmer that reflects in the light. I also found the formulas to be very similar for each of the 3 shades and quite consistent with most of the Le Vernis range which is good. They apply light yet evenly onto the nail and are opaque with 2 coats. Lasting time is about 3-4 days without any chips. Love!
First up, we have Sweet Lilac (#615). A beautiful pale lavender shade with a soft pink tone to it. It’s a very feminine yet sophisticated shade, making it quite wearable for everyday. I’ve always been quite partial to pastel purple nail colours, and this one definitely takes the cake!
Next we have my favourite out of the 3, Pink Tonic (#619)! It is the most gorgeous, bright fuchsia pink. It’s the type of colour you can wear all year round, on your fingers or toes! I’ve been wearing it non-stop for the past couple of weeks and don’t see myself getting tired of it anytime soon. All you pink lovers out there, I guarantee you’ll adore this shade as much as I do!
Lastly I picked up Mirabella (#623). Honestly, I’m not usually a fan of orange shades, but totally had to make an exception for this one. It’s such a happy colour, that you can’t help but smile looking at it. Been rocking this one on my toes, even if they’re usually covered up by socks, tights and boots lol. Definitely can’t wait for sandals weather!
Seriously loving these 3 colours and highly recommend. They’re also Limited Edition, so if you’re tempted, I suggest you hop to it! Available now from all Chanel Beauty boutiques and counters or online, RRP AU$39/US$27.
