I caved in and got one of the nail polishes from Chanel’s Fall 2013 collection, Superstition de Chanel.
And then I put it on my toesies.
Pictured: Chanel Le Vernis in 591 Alchimie.
It’s one to two coats; it was patchy at the first coat but I only evened it out, I didn’t paint everything with a second coat. No top coat, since I don’t usually bother with it on my toes. The color is a beautiful golden green with intense shimmer. It is similar to Peridot, but unlike Peridot there is no duochrome at all. It’s also deeper than Peridot.
As much as I love the color, as much do I curse the quality. The brush is thin, the polish either too thick or not enough, it smells of nail polish (most modern formulas don’t). Every time I apply Chanel nail polish I tell myself I won’t buy another one. And then from time to time, a color does me in again. *sigh*
