This season seems to be the season of beautiful corals and Chanel Distraction 549 is no exception. Distraction is a stunning coral infused with a subtle hint of fuschia shimmer that makes it glow in direct sunlight. On the nails it's a vibrant coral with a slight hint of pink to prevent it from looking like a straight orange. The finish is slightly jelly-like with a semi-transparent texture but it has rich and smooth coverage with 2 coats. Depending on the angle you hold the bottle or the nails, sometimes it looks more orange, others more coral.
Swatched, here you can see it glow:
It's very similar to other oranges and corals but I love it. I know many of you wonder how it compares to Laura Mercier's Cabana - almost identical. LM's is a bit softer, while Chanel's is a tad bit more vibrant. Here are a few comparisons swatched.
How do I feel about Chanel Distraction even though it's practically identical to other corals?
I *heart* it.
