The name of this Chanel nail polish is Pink Rubber…
Dirty! I feel like a perv every time I say it. 🙂 Pink Rubber, Pink Rubber, Pink Rubber.
Pink Rubber (say it one more time) is from the Chanel winter collection, and it’s $28, limited edition and really friggin’ cool. I think it’s one of the coolest things Chanel has done in a long time.
So…why is it called Pink Rubber? Well, I think it’s because of the finish. From afar, it looks like a pretty typical matte, but if get up really closely, it looks like I dipped my nails in a vat of melted latex.
Not to take anything away from matte nail polishes, because I like wearing them sometimes, but some of them seem, I dunno…like they’re too basic. Like indoor house paint. Pink Rubber, though, has a slight sheen to it, so it isn’t completely flat.
And just in case you’re wondering, no, it does not feel rubbery.
Um…why did that also sound hella dirty? LOL! Get your mind out of the gutter, Karen. 🙂
I think the color looks like a baby pink in the bottle, but it looks more like a light pastel pinkish coral on my nails (I’m wearing three coats in these pics).
It kinda sorta reminds me of flamingo feathers, and you know how I am about anything related to flamingos. I love them.
As for wear time, I think it’s OK but not great. I applied Pink Rubber before doing my pre-Thanksgiving Cinderella chores and actually noticed a few chips the following day, so I removed it and re-applied the fresh mani I’m wearing in these pics. So far, so good after more than 48 hours this time, and I’m not using a base or top coat.
To its credit, the color doesn’t really show chips as readily as darker colors do, though, so that’s good.
Based on how it looks in its bottle, Pink Rubber (dirty!) seems like it would be basic, but the finish makes it much cooler. I’m not even usually into pale pink polishes because most of them bore me to tears (I wear lots of greens and blues), but I love Pink Rubber…
Haha, sorry, that name never gets old.
