I can see how opaque white nail polish could be a little off-putting in a “Whoa! That’s one too many toe rings!” kind of way.
But when they’re done right, I think they’re go-go girl chic.
If you’re open to the idea, what do you think of Chanel’s new Eastern Light Le Vernis Nail Colour?
It’s a creamy winter white with a high-gloss, mirror-like shine that sets it apart from your everyday drugstore white nail polish.
Wowza, Eastern Light is almost bright enough to read by. Doesn’t it look like it’s glowing? I could totally see Lady Gaga wearing it on stage and gripping the microphone with her eyes closed as she belts out the bridge to You and I.
WARNING: the shade does require some work to wear. I need three coats for that full-on Whiteout effect (did you ever do those when you were a kid?), and those three coats can take an hour to dry.
You know what they say, though. Patience is a virtue.
And then there’s the price: $30…
I wish it came with something extra, perhaps a holographic effect or secret shimmer.
If you’re a DCS (Dedicated Chanel Stalker) with a healthy dose of patience, or just a big fan of white polishes on your tips and toes, Eastern Light may turn you on.
