CHANEL Nouvelle Vague

Hi and hello - do you feel the desire to summer as well as me? I am soo bored by our cold and rainy weather here! But thanks god we CAN have summer - on our nails, isn't it?

CHANEL inspired us this summer with colours of bright, tropical fruits and turqoise sea water directly imported of the Caribbean - see here the new, limited shade 'Nouvelle Vague'.
I am not really a fan of CHANEL nail polishes, because they are not holding what they promise, especially the lasting on the nails is not the best. But I have a personal alternate to you and one of my all-time summer favourites - China Glaze For Audrey, a not new, but great opaque, creamy Turquoise. It is a tribute to Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany and remains to the special Tiffany shade of their CI.

Like all the China Glaze nail polishes it is quite easy to apply, you get good results after two layers, here I polished 3 + Base and Top Coat. For a perfect result I prefer Ridge Filler as a base, it makes the creamy and dense colour flawless. The drying time is for all layers with 15 minutes pretty good. The only thing I wish they would change is the brush: especially the creamy shades are much more easier to handle with a more bride brush.

Do you wear bright and bold colours in the summer? On your finger nails and/or on your toe nails?


  1. Hallo. Dein Blog spricht mich wirklich an.
    ...Ich denke meine Farbauswahl ist im Sommer schon knalliger. Aber das passiert meißt unbewusst. Was mir aber schon mal aufgefallen ist, ist dass man manchmal meine Stimmung anhand der Farbe meines Nagellack erahnen kann...

  2. Der türkise Nagellack sieht toll aus. Ich hab welche die ziemlich ähnlich aussehen. :D
