I'm not including soaking, cuticle work or buffing but you know when you have to leave the house but are not feelin' naked nails? Talking all things nails today, with a speedy at home mani. Yes, the lacquer love fest for Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour #641 Tenderly continues. I have been wearing this non stop since I bought it last month. Let's face it, if it is not a straight up classic red, it's going to be a neutral toned nail shade that I'm sporting.
I know, Chanel polishes don't have the best rep. but with the exception of one or two, I never have any issues with their formula or longevity. Honestly, I bought Ballerina recently as I felt like there weren't many others in the collection bar limited edition shades that I don't already own. I'm undecided as to whether I'm ashamed or proud of this... I often consider branching out, while perusing the nail polish stands but what can I say, I'm just too emotionally invested in a neutral nail. The last colours I bought were this from Chanel and a back up of Nails Inc. Porchester Square. Do you think I have a type?
Paired with it I use my trusty OPI Nail Envy as a base coat to avoid the polish staining my nails and to help it keep put for longer. I always feel like this is a more nourishing base option too! My go-to is Seche Vite for top coat. I know it has a scary list of ingredients but I love how it helps my manicure last longer, is fast drying, touch dry in a matter of minutes and the glass like shine it leaves.
