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.

It might not sparkle like its shimmery summer sisters, Azuré and Bel-Argus, but it still commands attention in its own way.

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 Azuré 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 Azuré 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. 🙂

    I saw this color when I was shopping today, but it was too similar to Butter London’s Jaffa (which I currently have on). But I do love anything coral or orange!
