When it comes to nail polish shades, Chanel has long been the authority. Each season beauty bloggers and editors alike, eagerly await in anticipation of the new launches. Iconic shades like Black Satin and Dragon sell out instantly. This time we were in for a treat with the launch of new shades and the newly reformulated Chanel Le Vernis Long Wear Nail Polishes.
New and old cult shades are now with the new 5 free formula so no nasties. They are long lasting and durable meaning no streaks or chips for several days. Ceramides help protect and condition the nails and the a glossy gel like finish is achieved without a lamp. As you can see from this Instagram post, and previous blog posts like this one, I'm quite the Chanel polish collector/curator so was a huge fan of the original version.
I bought two of the new shades to see how they measured up. #506 Camélia and #520 Garçonne. Camélia is a rich deep pink and Garçonne a medium green toned grey on me. I have to say, I'm very impressed. Both perform really well. They are both rich, pigmented and opaque. I like the thin texture, they glide on streak free with a high shine, mirror like finish.
