559 FRENZY CHANEL LE VERNIS NAIL COLOUR - SWATCHES AND REVIEW



Chanel's Fall 2012 collection debuted three new nail polishes: Frenzy, Vertigo and Suspicious. Vertigo is a dark grayish brown-black color, Suspicious is a bright red fuschia and Frenzy is a rosy beige with a hint of lavender. You can read more about the whole Chanel 2012 Fall collection here.

If I had to pick only one polish out of the fall collection then my favorite of the three would be 559 Frenzy. I think it is absolutely GORGEOUS and it makes for a beautiful neutral nail polish too. The only issue I had with any of the three polishes was the wear time. I only got 3-4 days before there was significant chipping. Although I didn't use a base coat so that might have garnered me an additional day or two of wear.

The three polishes are still available on the Chanel.com website and at most major department stores as well. They currently retail for $26.00 USD at .4 fl oz.

CHANEL HOLIDAY 2012 MAKEUP COLLECTION: ECLATS DU SOIR DE CHANEL


Intrigued by the alchemy of precious metals, Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, debuts a resplendent Holiday 2012 collection: ECLATS DU SOIR DE CHANEL. Gold and bronze shade harmonies dust eyes with festive shimmer, while soft beige, pinks and deep reds set face, lips and nails aglow.

This collection should start shipping to all stores starting the first week of October 2012.


REGARD SIGNE DE CHANEL QUADRA EYE SHADOW - $65.00 USD (limited edition)

This season's eyeshadow palette is at once a gift, a jewel and the ideal accessory. Embossed with a quilted effect and the CC monogram, each powder eyeshadow is reminiscent of the classic Chanel jacket button. Deep, dense bronze-gold with a radiant sheen complements colours from violet-plum red to smoky taupe to pink, for the definitive look of holiday glamour.

HARMONIE DU SOIR - Bronze Gold, Taupe, Violet-Plum and Pink



OMBRE CONTRASTE DUO EYESHADOW - $42.00 USD

This foolproof pairing of complementary shades — in two unique textures — is housed in one convenient compact. The softly shimmering light shade is a creamy powder, which can be worn alone for a luminous effect, or as a base to extend the wear of the accompanying deep-toned shadow. The dark shade has intense micronized pigments for true colour application, and a matte finish to create depth and contour. Two applicators are included: a foam-tip to apply the shadows and a brush to blend. Available in six essential shade harmonies designed to take the guesswork out of harmonizing and applying eyeshadow.

NUIT-CLAIRE - Rosy Beige, Deep Black


ILLUSION D'OMBRE LONG WEARING LUMINOUS EYESHADOW - $36.00 USD

This intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow offers true versatility. An innovative gel texture that is both soft and cushion-y allows it to be worn as eyeshadow or eyeliner. Includes a specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula.

SAINT TROPEZ DIOR VERNIS NAIL LACQUER - SWATCHES AND REVIEW


DIOR VERNIS SAINT TROPEZ NAIL POLISH captivates and dazzles. This polish was one of two addictive summer shades that was available for the Dior 2012 Summer collection. It is described as an aqua turquoise nail polish color and when applied you barely need two coats due to the rich and thick creaminess of the polish.

I had pretty good results with the Saint Tropez nail polish. I believe it lasted at least 3 days before I saw minimal wear and it was by day 5 before major chipping actually occurred. I bought mine at Sephora because the Dior counter at Belk had already sold out before they had even put out the display. One other thing to note is that the polish does tend to look a little dull by itself so I would definitely use a topcoat for added shine.
