NOTD: Chanel Le Vernis in Distraction



I've been neglecting my nails recently and last week they took revenge, with most of them splitting or breaking and the rest needing to be trimmed down to size. I desperately need a manicure but until that happens I've been distracting the casual observer with this appropriately named shade of Le Vernis from Chanel.



Released mid May as part of the Roses Ultimes de Chanel Collection, this very pretty polish is a bright but creamy pink toned coral. There's also a subtle pink shimmer in the bottle that doesn't show up on the nail. The colour is fantastic - it looks great against a tan and I don't have anything quite like it in my collection. I also found the formula easy to work with: it's streak free and is fully opaque in two coats. I'm on day 3 with no chips, so it's two beautifully bright thumbs up, from me!

Chanel Le Vernis are priced at €21.90; this one was courtesy of the brand.

Loving these colors--Chanel always inspires me when it comes to nail color--but wish they were 4FREE, and why I started my own line, didn't want all the chemicals.
