Ladies, can I get a little help? The MAC mani I rocked earlier this week now features more chips than a Cheetos convention (that’s what I get for skipping the top coat, DOH!). It’s time for something new.
I’m in the mood for springy, like one of the three polishes from Les Impressions de Chanel ($23 each). Have you had a chance to see ‘em yet?
Particuliere goes on like a creamy grayish brown. I really dig the color and coverage, and two coats is all it takes for opaque nails with nary a streak. Of all three spring shades, it’s the one I’m guessing will have the widest appeal, looking great on ladies with skin tones from warm to cool, light to dark. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Inattendu, a peachy beige cream, is the trickster of the bunch. The texture’s thicker than usual for a Chanel polish, and the finish a touch streaky. It took three coats to achieve a full-coverage look and takes forever to dry, oy! But this delicate shade sings “SPRING.” I bet it’ll look fantastic on warm-toned girls.

Doesn’t Tenderesse, a pale baby pink, look like something Essie would do? It’s a basic, semi-sheer pink that doesn’t streak (big plus!) — neutral enough to look great on just about anyone. Can you see yourself wearing it to a big event like a wedding, yes? If you know a bride-to-be, it might even make a great wedding shower gift. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Let me know which Chanel shade moves ya most! My claws thank you.
