What Are You Wearing on Your Nails?

Published in: Chanel, Just For Fun, Nails

Chanel Atmosphere Swatch

629 Atmosphere Le Vernis Nail Color from the new Chanel Collection États Poétiques fall 2014 collection, available now online ($27)

Chanel me! 🙂

Yes, I think it’s a Chanel day for me.


At least for the time being.

But you know how it is… One minute you’re rocking an opalescent golden pinkish grey; the next it’s a creamy bright yellow.

You know what, though? I’d rather have too many nail polish whims than too few ideas.

Ooh! This one here, 629 Atmosphere, is super cool — like MAC Vex Eye Shadow (without the flash of green) in a bottle of nail polish.

It’s a color chameleon of sorts. Sometimes it’s a golden pink, but then the light will hit it just right, and it’ll turn grayish gold.

Very neat, almost like having opals on your nails…

It’s available now online for $27 as part of the Chanel États Poétiques collection for fall 2014.

How about you, babe? What’s on your claws today?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Sorry about being incommunicado in the comments yesterday. I’m finishing up a project (yes, for Tabs), but I should be done with everything by the end of the day.

What are you up to? Do you have a busy day?

    So excited to see a swatch of this! I was waiting! Now I want it. And I want Orage from the fall line too! (I think they would look pretty layered together).

    Was this available at the Chanel counter already? I was hoping to pick it up at Nordy’s!

  2. Agata says:

    I am wearing Essie Sunday Funday on my nails. A busy day at work over here, ready to be done!

    Wearing a sparkly french mani – wedding in 4 days! WOOOO HOOOOO!!!!

  5. That shade is gorgeous!!! I’m wearing the new Jason Wu for Lancôme Fuchsia Veneer 😀

  6. Tricia says:

    I don’t know why I’m so on the fence with this one. I ordered Orage the second it popped up on Macys…this swatch does tempt me though. Today I’m wearing Chanel Golden Sand 🙂

  7. Ooooh, that’s an interesting one, Karen. I am just wearing Butter London nail foundation + my Estee Lauder top coat. Had to work, so couldn’t do anything fun with my nails.

    My nails are (still) bare. They (and my hands) are always so neglected because of time. Love the opalescent finish of the Chanel shade you’re sporting. I had a Revlon one in high school that looked quite similar and I still remember it being a favorite 🙂

    SO PRETTY, GAH! 😀 I love Chanel nail polishes in general (they work so well on me), but this one really is lovely!

    In fact, my nails at this very moment are sporting my conference polish, Chanel Frisson!

    Pretty! I love that it’s neutral-ish but still has something interesting going on. I’m not wearing anything on my fingernails, but I have Essie Mojito Madness on my toes. I’m not doing anything productive because I’m in the throes of summer break depression– maybe I should at least paint my nails!

  11. betty says:

    I’m wearing Essie Aruba blue only nails and Lippmann On The Beach on my toes. Fresh shiny mani/ pedi perfect addition to a summer day!
    Also, love the subtle beauty of the Chanel

  12. Amy says:

    I am loving the Sephora Formula X products. Today I am wearing Kelvin (orange gloss) topped with Magma (sheer tangerine with gold micro glitter). I find that sparkles and glitter are very forgiving for me as I’m not the greatest at painting my own nails.

  13. Karan says:

    Opals on my nails? Sold!

  14. Tracy says:

    I’m wearing OPI I Only Eat Lobster. Funny thing is I don’t like lobster at all.

  15. Teri says:

    Pretty shade! I was worried it would be a streaky metallic finish but instead we get a smooth pearly one, nice! I’m wearing Chanel Mirabella right now, it’s a very fun one ^^.

    I’m wearing an Orly matte purple polish. That Chanel looks so beautiful, I’m going to have to get one!

  17. Neapolitanmimi says:

    Looooove it!!! I’m wearing Essie “mademoiselle”

  18. blushableme says:

    Right now I’m wearing Revlon’s Rain Forrest which has a surprisingly pleasant formula and a very intriguing sparkle. It’s a great pick for the price!

    That color is gorgeous! Currently I’m wearing a nude polish – “Perfect Nude” by the brand JAFRA. JAFRA’s one of those independent selling companies, like Mary Kay and Avon (though I’ve never heard of JAFRA until I started dating my current boyfriend and found out his mom works for the company as a consultant).

    “Perfect Nude” really is the perfect nude for my skin tone (in between medium and tan with yellow undertones). It’s beige with a slight peach tone to it and the most subtle shimmer. The polish quality itself isn’t that great: a bit streaky and sheer, but it does dry amazingly fast.

  20. txabela says:

    Orly Rage, in both fingernails and toes. Is the maximum of laziness…. as I need just one coat, 1 second per nail of application and instant dry and one doesn’t need to be even accurate to get a decent effect. Will change to something more “summery” on Sunday.

  21. fancie says:

    Oooo so pretty!! I’m wearing Marc Jacobs Lux on my nails and toes right now

  23. Chelsea says:

    Oh you know me, nothing on my fingernails. My hands are to’ up from trapeze! My toenails have my usual Revlon Watermelon Fizz. Don’t know what I’ll do when I use up my last bottles!

  24. Heather says:

    That nail polish is gorgeous!!

  25. breyerchic04 says:

    Essie Madomoiselle as normal. On my toes is some random L’Oreal pink, not anything amazing but it’s bright and looks good with sandals.

    I can’t bring myself to pay for Chanel nailpolish but that color is amazing, goodness knows how much I love Vex shadow. Wearing opals on my hands sounds like a good idea.

  26. Eesha says:

    Oh so pretty! Loved it very much. I have a serious affection for such color chameleons 😀

    I’m wearing Prussian by LVX – prob better suited to Fall/Winter but a very pretty blue nonetheless. Spent Tuesday morning @ the Vet with my 4-legged child… always an ‘experience’ haha. I wonder how Tabs is at the vet?

  28. Domestic Goblin says:

    Hi Karen,

    I don’t normally use this word but Chanel Atmosphere looks MORGEOUS!

    I am currently wearing Bourjois Rose Lounge on my nails but may need to add Chanel Atmosphere onto my wishlist!


  29. Erin says:

    I think my favorite thing from Chanel is their polishes. I’m in-between colors right now. Lettin’ the nails take a break. I’ll probably pain them this week end though.

    Wow! That shade is sooo beautiful. It’s right up my alley. I need that.
    Ugh, I suspect this post will be ruthlessly ravaging for my wallet…

    I was on vacation for two weeks and I forced myself to have a nail laquer pause because my nails were really in a bad condition, just chipping again and again. I really managed it and allowed myself to paint them again ysterday – with “Urban Jungle” from Essie.

    The whole two weeks I had “Fifth Avenue” from Essie on my toe nails, I think the little bottle was just a great batch. NO chipping/tipwear! It still is almost looking perfect! They’re just a little grown out by now, but still acceptable. 😉
