Too soon to mention the word Autumn? Probably, but I love, love love all things Autumnal - cosy nights in, candles lighting, soft knitwear and hot chocolate. Being the Chanel nail polish devotee that I am as you can see here (I'm not sure whether to be proud or ashamed!) I was super excited for the launch of Chanel's new Autumn 2015 collection and as soon as they landed on counter, I made a lunch time dash to the store and picked up two new polishes
The first colour I bought was Chanel Ecorce Sanguine because I need more red hues! Is there anything more chic than a classic rouge? This is a creamy, warm red shade. I definitely think that the formula has been improving with each collection but on me personally, I find that it isn't too gloopy or streaky. I typically apply two coats and I get a full opaque finish. They dry down to a high shine and lasting power is impressive too. I use a base and top coat and can go several days without tip wear.
The second addition to my every growing collection was Chanel Chataigne This is another warm toned polish with a creamy finish. Described as a blackened burgundy, I thought/hoped it would be like Chanel Accessoire but I'm disappointed to find that on me it's a straight up black. A warm black but black none the less. I rarely wear black polish as I don't think it goes with my pale skin. Although, I only applied two coats so maybe if I try three...
Chanel always bring out beautiful shades, in classic packaging and with the exception of one or two, the formula and coverage are impressive too.
