Chanel has released quite a few nail lacquers this season in various collections. I have a sneak peek for you today. There is a lot of red this year. I've run out of nail wheels for comparisons and my fingers can only take so much swatching each day, so I'll do comparisons where I can. Many of my polishes are still in moving boxes too, so comparisons will be limited to what I can find easily. (I have a huge amount of respect for full-time nail polish bloggers who put their fingers through so much every week.)
The new shades this season include:
- Collection Plumes Précieuses de Chanel (Holiday) is Phenix (limited-edition)
- Rouge Allure Gloss Collection includes Intention, Expression and Exception
- Chanel's Delights includes Sweet Star (limited-edition)
- Collection Les Rouges Culte includes cult classics from the 80s in Rouge Flamboyant, Laque Rouge and Rouge No. 19 (all limited-edition)
The Holiday and Rouge Allure Gloss collection shades can be found at all Chanel counters and retailers now such as Nordstrom, Saks and Neiman Marcus. The Collection Les Rouges Culte are a Chanel.com exclusive, Sweet Star has been spotted at various Chanel Boutiques and Chanel.com.
Here's another shot, there is a lot of glare from the flash and sunlight but it shows the differences in undertone for the various red options. I do think they are fairly similar in effect and color so for me I definitely did not need all of the reds but as a collector of Chanel Le Vernis nail polishes, I could not pass them up.
I hope to have Phenix and Sweet Star posts completed soon (fingers crossed I can finish them today). For now, if you've been debating whether or not to splurge I hope this line up of all the new shades helps you gauge how they look side by side.
