Classic style goes bold with the Chanel spring 2021 nail polish collection! Fashion in 2021 is mixing classic styles with retro trends from the early 2000s back to the 1960s. Depending on the designer, you can find almost any decade of influence you want. So for spring 2021, Chanel decided to take three classic nail polish hues, and add a little bit of spice to them. They will blend with any fashion trend you decide to wear. Love!

“Les Fleurs de Chanel” has taken classic spring hues, and added a little extra spice to them in order to modernize something deemed timeless. Chanel Pensee nail polish appears to be a classic spring pastel pink, but it has a little bit of orange mixed in, making it more of a pale peach; and the most classic of the three colors. With Chanel Anthurium nail polish, an otherwise classic cherry hue, red infused with extra hot pink, making it more of an extra bright raspberry. Lastly, Chanel Metallic Bloom nail polish is the sparkling polish those of us who love a good metallic hue have been waiting for. It appears to be a classic metallic red, but it has a lot of orange laced in, making it an orange-red fire hue. Normally I would shy away from this color, but Chanel did it right! I am in love with this color; it is my favorite of the three! Love it!

I tested all three colors with one base coat, and two coats of color. I didn’t want to photograph them with a top coat since it adds more shine. This way you can see the colors as they are. So, without further ado, here are the three nail polish colors for spring 2021 from Chanel!

How pretty is this bright raspberry hue? If you love an edgy take on red, Chanel Anthurium nail polish is your spring 2021 hue! This is a nice cream nail polish which glides easily on in two coats. The color saturation is smooth and does not streak. It’s a great way to brighten up nails, and add a pop of color to your overall look. Love!

Chanel nail polish spring 2021 | Chanel Pensee

If you love a more feminine and soft look, Chanel Pensee nail polish for spring 2021 is your color. This pale peachy pink is delicate and light. I found the color to be quite light. I would recommend using one base coat, and three coats of color with Pensee. This is a great color if you plan to wear a lot of different color palettes this spring. It won’t clash with anything, and will offer the most classic vibe of the three colors.

Chanel nail polish spring 2021 | Chanel Metallic Bloom

This one is my favorite! I love a sparkling metallic nail polish, and Chanel Metallic Bloom nail polish does not disappoint! This fire color has both red and orange hues; while being more on the red side. I normally shy away from orange based colors, but this one is amazing. I am in love! I can’t wait to wear this bold hue throughout the spring season. If you like a sparkling metallic, and a bold hue, this one is for you!

Dior nail polish spring 2021 review

The Dior spring 2021 nail polish collection is here! These colors are so pretty and happy. Love happy colors!

Spring 2021 is all about hope and renewal in my eyes. We have a vaccine getting distributed, and the end of this shut down seems closer than ever before. I am optimistic about getting back to a normal life with my kids in school, in sports, and having the freedom to travel and gather with friends and family. With this optimism, comes an urge to dress in more uplifting colors, and find ways to create a cheerful environment. These two spring hues from Dior are exactly what I need! I am sure you do too!

For spring 2021, Dior created two pretty and cheerful hues for their spring beauty collection. Coral Peony is a light and bright orange-pink which is great for warm days, and a cheerful attitude. If you are interested in a more edgy color, Pink Sakura by Dior is a bright, almost-hot-pink. This is definitely the “notice me” hue of the collection. Love it!

The nail polishes from the Dior spring 2021 beauty collection are both cream polishes. I tested them with one base coat, and two coats of color. I skipped the top coat. As with all Dior nail polishes, they are sturdy and chip-resistant. I also found the cream nail polish applies evenly without streaking.

So, without further ado, here is my Dior nail polish spring 2021 collection review!

Dior nail polish spring 2021 | Dior Coral Peony

Dior Coral Peony nail polish is a pretty orange-pink nail polish which is cheery and happy. I love the lighthearted hue of this nail polish! This is a great color for warmer days; or even to lighten up a dark winter day as we head towards spring.

Dior nail polish spring 2021 | Dior Pink Sakura

Pink Sakura by Dior is a bright and bold pink nail polish for spring 2021. I love this unapologetic hue. It is a great way to brighten up your spring style, as well as your day! Dior Pink Sakura nail polish is also a great color to wear in both the spring and summer months as it is also a color we often see in summer nail polish collections. This makes it a great investment color for the entire spring/summer season. Love!
