Chanel, how do you do that magic you do? Because you do it so well! Coco help me, but I cannot resist a delicious Chanel nail polish. They are my nail polish Kryptonite. This spring, they released a trio of gorgeous shades, which including Tenderly, a perfect dusty mauve-rose, that is reviewed here. And, a gorgeous fuchsia, Désirio, which I haven’t reviewed yet. The one I am obsessing over presently is Chanel Paradiso – a super soft and pale green, with a silvery shimmer. I get compliments like crazy when I wear it. It is a flattering shade, and would compliment most skin tones. Gorgeous. I use two coats, which still allows for some visible nail line, which I don’t mind. But a third coat would take care of that.
The other beauty that came home with me is Chanel Sweet Star. It was released last November for Vogue’s Fashion Night Out, in Australia. The more I could not find it anywhere, the more I wanted it. I was shopping for my beautiful Chanel Misia at Saks and saw Sweet Star on their counter. I died! Then I bought it. It’s a crazy butterfly colour, the kind that changes depending on the lighting. It appears silver head on, but turns blue-purple, and then a gun metal shade. It also has a gorgeous multi colour micro glitter that blows my mind.
I got both of these at department store Chanel counters. I am pretty sure that Sweet Star is not available in Canada, however. That could change though!
