Chanel nail polishes have been a favourite of mine for a long time... at least when it comes to colours. If you're a bit of a nail polish buff you will know that as pretty as the colour selection is, the formula used to stink! It used to be a one day polish for me, with chips happening pretty much the same day. But no more! All hail the NEW FORMULA. I have no idea why it has taken Chanel so long to figure it out - so many highstreet brands (shout out to Barry M) have had superb quality polishes for years! But finally, here we are with a new formulation of Chanel nail polishes that is not only good but... amazing! The photo above is taken on day 3 of the nail polish being on, with absolutely no chips or even tip wear in sight. If I do a good job with application I usually get about 3-4 days max out of a nail polish before it starts to chip (the old formula Chanel polishes used to chip on day 1). I have worn this Chanel one for 6 days with no major wear to report!
The only shade in the new formulation I have (for now) is No. 455 Lotus Rouge. It's a beautiful deep raspberry colour, a perfect deep summer red.
The new formula makes me want to throw away all of my old Chanel polishes and restock all of my favourite colours. And there are some beauties to choose from: the classics like Rouge Noir and the wonderful limited edition shades from the seasonal collections!
You can get Chanel nail polishes at Debenhams, Brown Thomas and all other Chanel counters. A bottle of this stuff will set you back €24... but now it's totally worth it!
