Chanel Delight is from their summer 2012 collection (the two others being Island and Holiday). I had read that it should be a bronze, but to my eye it's far more a gold polish than a bronze polish. In fact it's a relatively pale (and non-yellow) gold (at least compared to Gold Finger) with only a hint of bronze in certain lights. The surface is metallic, and in that respect it is close to the three metallic polishes from last autumn (Peridot, Quartz, Graphite). At first I thought it was the same color as Peridot just without the green, but the color is more rosa. There is another difference between Peridot and Delight though. Delight has some of the same slightly grainy looking finish as Graphite does. It's not as distinctive as in Graphite, but it's there. Another difference is the application - the autumn colors are easy to apply and come on without visible brushstrokes, but I find Delight to be a bit more tricky in that respect (my daughter said it looked as if I had put it on with a match). That said, the color is so beautiful and compliments my pale yellow skin tone so well that I'll put up with the brushstrokes. How weird it may sound, Delight is a rather "natural" looking gold - it's not flashy and won't draw a lot of attention to your hands. Well, it couldn't be mistaken for a beige, but it's a relatively quiet and elegant looking gold that can be worn on most occasions. I'll be sure to buy an extra bottle of this.
