I just bought this in Flamingo - the summer LE. Outside of its quality (which is outstanding) it is a pretty pink colour - like a 60's kind of pink. Not strong, but to me, nicely trailer chic. Very easy to apply, very easy to wear, good everyday colour for everything. It does need three coats for some reason to really get good coverage, but otherwise, looks nice with tanned hands and it is a good, warmer pink.
I LOVE chanel nail polishes and have reviewed a few colors. However, so far there are NO reviews for the new LA summer colors.
Rodeo Drive. That's the ONLY color someone one needs this summer. It's cheeky, PURPLE, and screams summer fling. It's absolutely gorgeous and isn't annoying or shimmery like most "summer" colors! A MUST BUY!!!
Recently I bought new color Classis from summer collection! It's amazing! I'm in love with this color!!!
This polish glides perfectly on nails. Thought I am not sure that its lasting power is longer then cheaper polishes.
But Chanel polishes colors are so chic and devine, that I will always buy it!
I am not sure how anyone does not like this!!! I have never had a polish stay on this long before...Gorgeous colors, goes on fantastic and stays on like a superglue without the sticky mess and the inability to come off. I love blanc ceramic, pink satin and pink flamingo!!!
I have this in no. 167 Ballerina.
I wanted a very natural colour for my nails and the SA said this would be it.
I have weaned myself of Nails Inc. long lasting manicure where they put on UV gel nail coating as it looks fantastic but was costing me too much.
I gently buff my nails as I get ridge nail on thumb nails, then put on two coats of this and it lasts me a week without looking like it needs anything done to it. I dont use a base or top coat. Dries much quicker than other polishes I have used in the past.
My only gripe is the top of the bottle, I have to pull off the square top to get to the round top! Ah well cest la vie.
Bit pricey at £13 for 13ml bottle but I would reccomend it and will repurchase, although this has Bismuth Oxychloride and I am supposed to be avoiding so we'll see.

OK, so when I first saw one of these I was in love! The packaging was so classy, and the colours totally cute, so I immediately bought one in "Miami", which is a peachey/coral colour and one in "fire", which is red with a slight golden sheen. I love how they have that extra cap on top, and the ribbed one screw off really well, never ever got glued on to the bottle. And boy, did it go on well! The brush was perfect and it dispensed just the right amount of polish for the perfect layer.
So the question is: why did I give it 3 out of 5? Because IT DIDN'T STAY!!! I don't know why some people say this is very lasting. It hardly even lasted a day. Next evening the nails were all chapped at the ends. So, no matter how nice the colours and the quality of the product is, zero staying power is just a no-no gor me. I mean, I buy a nail polish to wear it, not to look at it standing around in a Chanel bottle. Besides, it vost's as much as 2 OPI's who have a bigger colour variety and much better staying power.
Fabulous product! If you want nail polish that lasts - boy have you found it! I painted my toenails last week and it is still perfectly in place. I used organza and I love it! Its a funky pink that looks gorgeous on. I only knocked a point off as I found this darker colour slightly tricky to apply but then I am rubbish with nail polish in general! A lighter colour would have been easy peasy me thinks! I will never buy another nail polish brand again!
The best of the bests! Sparkles like diamonds and lasts well: 3-4 days or so without chipping even without a top coat - and I'm really not that gentle with my nails, wash my hands every twenty minutes, open hard-to-open boxes with nails and so on..
I have Le Vernis in a variety of shades and most of them are excellent, one coat gives an even and opaque cover.
Packaging and brush are perfect as well. What I like most of all is that it doesn't have that terrible nail polish smell.
(Just a moderate horrible smell, haha.)
I've tried so hard to love my Chanel polishes, but I've learned to only buy them if I absolutely cannot find another to match my lipstick. I just did my nails last night, and getting dressed this morning I chipped one, bummer! Not worth the price!
Heard good things about chanel nailpolish so decided to try it myself(I usually buy OPI or revlon) especially that the fall 07 collection has those gorgeous pink shades - I bought lily beige and magnolia rose.I love the colors, one is a light pinkish beige with slight silver shimmer and the other one is a soft baby pink with slight shimmer as well, and the stylish packiging.What i didn't like is that there were a bit streaky when applied and also the polish is thick.Chipped after 3-4 days.Quite dissapointed as I expected better quality from Chanel, especially given the price.
