As far as I’m concerned, any factoid or tidbit of information can also be used to justify spending time with Chanel’s new coral, Lilis Le Vernis Nail Colour.
- Had the most insane week ever? (Yup, my kitty boss is cray!) Let’s unwind with Chanel.
- Did you floss your teeth this morning? (Sure did.) Now let’s brush our nails with Chanel.
- Did you successfully resist the urge to wear Pajama Jeans to Trader Joe’s? (So far.) Cool! Let’s stay home and paint our nails with Chanel.
Non-streaky with a mirror-like shine, this creamy reddish coral practically leaps off the screen.
I’ve been wearing it on my fingers this week with AzurÃ© on my toes, and even though they aren’t colors I’d normally think to wear together, I like the way they complement each other.
You’ve got creamy coral Lilis on the one hand — ladylike and vintage — and techno teal AzurÃ© on the other, and through some offbeat twist of fate, I think the combo just works.
In a way, Lilis could be considered the most pedestrian of Chanel’s three summer nail colors. It doesn’t exactly tread uncharted territory, and you could probably find similar colors for less, but I bet they wouldn’t be this bright.
And they wouldn’t be Chanel.
