Chanel Délicatesse

Hello Beauties,

Chanel Delicatesse is the second nail polish I purchased from Les Twin-Sets Fashion Night Out Collection. You can see my review of Provocation here.

I actually bought the entire set with matching lipstick. I love mauve/nude shades; you can wear these types of colors on any occasion.

Chanel Delicatesse is a perfect opaque peach-rose- beige nail polish. It is really hard to describe the color. I was looking for this type of shade for a long time. It has a hint of brown, but it is not overpowering. Instead, the nail polish has some rose undertones. You can find a lot of substitutes of this shade; In short, it is neutral beige. On the other hand, I wasn’t able to find exact dupes with the same opacity and color.

Hare Polish Cosmo Blossoms

As most of you know by now, I’m holding a small Giveaway. You can check it here. One of the prizes is Hare Polish Cosmo Blossoms.Today I’m going to show you how Cosmo Blossoms will look on your nails.

Cosmo Blossoms is a lavender jelly polish with bright green glitter of various sizes. I love it; it is subtle, yet very unique. The only problem is that lavender base looks baby pink when you apply 1 or 2 coats. So I had to apply 3 coats to get the color I wanted. The polish is not thick at all, although there is a lot of glitter in the bottle. It applies easily with glitter evenly distributed on the nail. I had no problems with the application. It dries relatively fast and stays on the nails without chipping for 3-4 days.

Hare Polish is available at Llarowe shop. You can also check it out at Hare Polish Etsy store.

Chanel Provocation Swatches and Review

Hi Ladies,

Today I’m showing you vampy Chanel Provocation from Fashion’s Night Out Limited Collection. It is sold with the matching lipstick, but it is too dark for my skin tone, so I skipped this one. 

Chanel Provocation is a deep wine shade with hints of cherry and burgundy. I can’t say that this color is unique, but I don’t have similar polishes; besides it is timeless and classy. If you are looking for the dupe, I think Zoya Toni looks close in the direct sunlight.

The application is great. I don’t always love Chanel’s brushes, 
but this one is perfect. On the other hand, people with bigger nails might find it too narrow. Polish dries fast and quite durable. I applied 2 coats for the full opacity, because the finish is somewhat between jelly and cream.

HITS No Olimpo Apolo Swatches

Apolo is a part of HITS NO Olimpo collection. It’s a stunning deep blue holographic nail polish. It seems to be very pigmented in the bottle, but it I can’t say it is as opaque as some other holos own (for example , A-England). Thus you will need 3 coats to reach max opacity. The texture is closer to jelly, but the polish is not thick and easy to apply.

OPI Germany Collection 2012 – Every Month is Oktoberfest

I was anticipating OPI Germany Collection to be absolutely stunning. Well, nothing is new in terms of finishes, but collection is definitely lovely and very well composed. Maybe because I own so many polishes, I can’t be fascinated with entire collection and buy all of the polishes as I used to anymore:). Overall, there are definitely some timeless and classic pieces like Don't Pretzel my Buttons and Schnapps Out of It.

I got only 2 of the polishes from this collection so far: Every Month is Oktoberfest and German-icure.

Every Month is Oktoberfest is blackened base with mix of dark purple metallic shimmer. The shade is very complex and definitely looks “rich”. It’s almost black under the indoor artificial light. In sunlight it reminded me of Max Factor Fantasy Fire. Great polish to have in your collection. Every Month is Oktoberfest definitely more on the classics side.

The application is flawless; only 2 thin coats are needed for the full opacity. It also dries fast and durable as most of the OPI polishes.
The only strange thing I noticed is that it doesn’t go well with Seche Vite top coat. After one day of wear clear top coat started chipping off. At the same time, the nail polish itself didn’t chip at all and stayed for 5 days.

Hi Ladies,
It’s time for the new small giveaway!!! This time I’m giving out Lynnderella Cauldron Drippings and Hare Polish.

I accidentally ordered 2 similar Hare polishes from Etsy and Llarowe, so you will get 1 absolutely new

I also mentioned a while back that I’m planning to start giving out Lynnderella polishes from my collection. I decided to start with Cauldron Drippings, it’s very appropriate for fall season. I used it only once for swatching and the nail polish hasn’t been opened ever since. 
The lucky winner will receive both of the nail polishes. The giveaway is international. The winner will be announced after October 6th.
Good Luck Everyone!!!!
