Blogmas Day 9: Chanel A/W Nails

9 December 2013

 Chanel nail polishes have a bit of a bad rep. Yes, they're not the most long lasting (but then again, I've yet to find anything that can go longer than five days chip-free on my nails), but for luxe packaging which feels like a real treat and a trend-setting shade selection, look no further than Chanel. Whilst browsing my nail polish collection recently, I noticed that the majority of my go-to shades throughout the Winter months all come from Chanel, so I figured it was time for a group rave.

Rouge Noir is the most recent addition to my nail polish collection. I lusted after this shade for months and months until finally the birthday gods decided to shine down on me (aka I was gifted with a voucher), so off to Boots I went. It's the perfect red for when I feel like vamping it up, and the glossiest of the three as well. Two coats is all you need for a sexy, classic blood red shade.

Frenzy was one of the most popular polishes of 2012, and I finally jumped on the bandwagon on my birthday last November (do you see a theme?). Although it's a well loved shade, initially I was very unimpressed. However, slowly but surely over the last twelve months I've fallen in love. This polish is now one of my absolute favourites, being my every day grey-nude. *Insert heart-eyed emoji icon here*.

Particuliere is another hyped up Chanel shade, and of the three here, is the one that disappointed me a little. It's a chocolate brown which leans heavily towards the grey side of things and unfortunately isn't too flattering on my skin tone on more tanned days. However, I love wearing this shade on my toes all year round, plus it's perfect for my finger tips when I'm a little paler through the Autumn and Winter months.

  6. I really like Chanel nail varnishes, only tried one in Rouge Rubis but it's so gorgeous and I love the classic red colour! I guess if I like that then I'll love Rouge Noir, it sounds like the perfect blood red.
