Chanel Sweet Lilac nail polish for summer 2014 review

Chanel “Sweet Lilac” is a hot new, pinkish lavender nail polish hue from Chanel’s summer 2014 beauty collection “Reflets d’ete de Chanel.” This beautiful pinkish lavender hue was given the perfect name by Chanel; it surely is a Sweet Lilac hue! 

With Pantone’s color of the year being “Radiant Orchid,” Chanel’s “Sweet Lilac” nail polish arrives just in time for the summer season; giving color enthusiasts everywhere an easy way to wear the year’s hottest hue. Chanel “Sweet Lilac” nail polish is a similar shade to “Radiant Orchid” making it a great way to rock the color of the year.

Chanel “Sweet Lilac” nail polish is an easy color to wear this summer 2014 season. The pinkish tinge inside this lavender hue, allows Sweet Lilac to blend well with cool color palettes, as well as any shade of blue, green, purple and pink. Chanel “Sweet Lilac” nail polish is a middle-of-the-road color making it right between neon and pastel. This allows the  nail polish color to play well with both pastels and neons without clashing. Love that!

I tested out Chanel “Sweet Lilac” with two coats of color, one base coat and no top coat. The polish lasted six days before chipping. Sweet Lilac was easy to apply and the color brushed on smoothly without streaking. 

If you like the idea of a lavender hue for summer nail polish but Chanel Sweet Lilac has too much pink it in for your taste, please check out my review of Dolce & Gabbana’s “Lilac” nail polish. It has more of a blue base and is a beautiful lilac hue.
