I love how avant-garde these two varnishes are; pre-cursers of things to come in the world of nail beauty! When CHANEL released 'Peridot' for summer 2011 (previously reviewed here), its mysterious multi-chrome finish brought these incredible 'Vernis Facettes' to mind, and as I swatched them,...

All swatches are with Sèche Natural base coat, three thin coats of lacquer and Sèche Vite top coat. With yellow being touted as the 'IT' hue of the Summer, along comes 'Mimosa' – a soft buttery hue with that gorgeous secret shimmer CHANEL has become synonymous for. Pale lemony glints in

In this sunlight swatch, you can catch some of the golden sparkle within this sheer shade with flash I would have thought that the only pencil of this collection, Le Crayon Lèvres 'Vegas Gold', would have been created as an eye liner, but once again, CHANEL takes an unexpected turn by...
