Are you having a heatwave in your neck of the woods? It’s been low 90’s here all week! I am seriously melting away! Since I can’t spend all day, everyday, inside the swimming pool keeping cool, I need to ensure my skin is protected from the harsh sun; especially when it’s hot, and my kids want to be outside!
When Elizabeth Arden sent me a fun PR package filled with summer beauty essentials to test out, I was thrilled! I have been searching for a lip balm with SPF, and this one is fabulous! It feels like lipstick, but it’s a balm with SPF. That is really hard to find. I am so tired of gooey SPF products for lips, or products which are drying. It’s so hard to find something in between which moisturizes, protects and feels normal on the lips. Elizabeth Arden hit a home run with their SPF lip balm. It’s my newest summer beauty addiction! I can wear it alone, or under lipstick. Either way, it performs well. Love it!
I also want to give a shout-out to this eight-hour daily defense cream. It’s an amazing facial sunscreen with SPF 35 which I can wear alone, or under my face powder; I don’t wear foundation since I am acne prone. Speaking of acne prone, this sunscreen does not clog my pores or give me acne. That’s a key feature of something I put on my face since my face loves to break out. Love!

We still have two more months of summer, plus this weather will continue until October; at least here in the San Francisco Bay Area. That being said, summer beauty essentials with SPF are a must-have for right now, and for the months to come. What are your favorite SPF products for the summer season?
Thanks for stopping by!

Isn’t it amazing that the Chanel fall 2019 nail polish collection is in stock already! It’s quite warm outside, yet here I am thinking about the Chanel fall 2019 beauty collection! Crazy right?! Well, the Chanel nail polish fall 2019 collection might surprise you.
Last season, Chanel indulged in six festive hues. This made me think the fall nail polish collection from Chanel would also include a large array of colors to choose from. Nope! Chanel has taken some inspiration from the color palette which made the iconic fashion house famous. Have you guessed yet? Without peeking at the photos? Haha, you peeked!
That’s right! Chanel has gone black and white for the fall 2019 season. It both classic and incredibly vampy at the same time. In fact, there is nothing classic about black nail polish, nor white nail polish. They are classic in apparel, handbags, and shoes; not beauty! Chanel is mixing things up for fall, and I think I like it!
There are only two nail polish hues for fall 2019 from Chanel, “Pure White,” and “Pure Black.” There isn’t a spin on black or white. You won’t find any hidden sparkles, or twists. Pure White is a clean white, cream nail polish. Pure Black is also a classic cream nail polish. No surprises. You get the name on the bottle.
Chanel nail polish fall 2019: Pure White
If you long for the days of using white-out as nail polish in order to get that pure white hue, you’re in luck! For the fall 2019 season, Chanel has introduced Pure White nail polish. This is a classic white cream nail polish which glides on smoothly to create a pure white finish. It’s white, so it matches everything in your wardrobe! How fun is that!
Chanel Pure White nail polish for fall 2019 applies smoothly with one base coat and two coats of color.
Chanel nail polish fall 2019: Pure Black
Are you in a dark mood? Have you been searching for a pure black nail polish hue and all you have found is charcoal, glitter, and weird versions of black? Never fear, Chanel Pure Black nail polish is here! This is the Chanel fall 2019 nail polish of all your deep, dark dreams. This classic cream polish offers a dark black hue in two coats. Since it’s black, it matches everything in your closet too!
Chanel Pure Black nail polish for fall 2019 applies evenly without streaking with one base coat and two coats of color.
What are your thoughts? Do you plan to rock one, or both, of these classic, yet not classic, nail polish hues? If so, which color catches your eye?

I’m starting with Chanel Pure White nail polish for fall 2019. When temperatures cool down, I may switch things up and rock the Chanel Pure Black nail polish hue.
I’m so excited about the Chanel nail polish summer 2019 nail polish collection! Normally Chanel releases anywhere from two to four colors for any given season, but for summer 2019, they are giving us six colors! It’s a nail polish buffet, and it is so hard to choose which one to wear! They are all fabulous hues!
The Chanel summer 2019 nail polish collection offers something for everyone. There are two oceanic hues to choose from; Radiant Verde, and Radiant Blue. They are both beautiful colors, and offer a little bit of metallic sparkle; which looks amazing in the sun! There is also a really pretty, neutral hue named Radiant Ballerina. This is a sweet golden blush which is a great daily hue. If you are more of a fire girl, Chanel is taking care of you this summer season! Radiant Red, Radiant Rouge Noir, and Radiant Arancio will keep your nails on fire all summer long. These are some fun colors!
All six of Chanel’s summer 2019 nail polish colors offer sparkle and a soft metallic finish. They all catch the sun and sparkle when you are outside. It will be fun this summer to wear a different color every few days to mix things up. So, without further ado, here are photos of what each color looks like on!
Chanel Radiant Verde nail polish summer 2019
This is my favorite color from the Chanel nail polish summer 2019 collection. Radiant Verde by Chanel is a sparkling, dark sea green which so pretty and fun for the summer months! It is an easy color to wear with this summer’s color palette, and it looks fabulous with beachwear, and poolside. I am pretty sure this will be the color I wear most often this summer season!
Chanel Radiant Blue nail polish summer 2019
How pretty is this blue! Apologies for the bad paint job, I polished my nails before dinner and I think I may have been rushing. It’s a little uneven. Hopefully you can still find this photo useful in determining the hue. It’s a dark blue which offers sparkle-I love sparkle! This is my second favorite color. I love blue, and this is a beautiful one! Chanel Radiant Blue nail polish will be perfect for the 4th of July, and many summer days when I want blue nails; and I tend to want blue nails often. If you are a blue fan too, this is the color for you!
Chanel Radiant Red nail polish summer 2019
Are you a classic, cherry red girl? Then Chanel Radiant Red nail polish for summer 2019 is for you! This is a flirty, sparkling cherry red polish which is fun to wear, and offers a little twist on classic cherry red nail polish. It’s a really pretty color!
Chanel Radiant Rouge Noir nail polish summer 2019
Chanel Radiant Rouge Noir nail polish is the new Vamp. If you flocked to the beauty counters in the 1990s, desperately seeking Vamp, and then felt energized when it re-emerged a couple of years ago, then this is your nail polish hue for summer 2019! Radiant Rouge Noir by Chanel is a fabulous, dark red nail polish which is vamp with a twist. The sparkles are the twist 😉 Love!
Chanel Radiant Ballerina nail polish summer 2019
If you are looking for the ideal neutral nail polish to carry you through the summer 2019 season, then this is it! Chanel Radiant Ballerina is a golden, sparkling blush nail polish hue which adds a little bit of edge to an otherwise sweet nail color. I love the little bit of golden sparkle within this polish. It is also a great color to wear while traveling this summer. If you plan to be away from home for more than six days, your nails will start to grow, or chip a little bit. This color won’t show one week growth, or small chips. It’s a great color to wear when you don’t have to time to re-paint! Love that!
Chanel Radiant Arancio nail polish summer 2019
Chanel Radiant Arancio nail polish for summer 2019 is a fiery orange hue. If you like bold color, this is the nail polish for you! It’s a bright, sparkling orange hue which is sure to capture attention this summer season. I think this will be a fun color to wear on toes if you are little bit understated like I am. If you are bold, then put this on your fingernails and make the world see you! This is the attention grabbing hue of the season!
I tested all six Chanel summer 2019 nail polish colors with one base coat, and two coats of color. Like all Chanel polishes, they are chip resistant and go on evenly. None of these colors clump or streak; they all apply evenly. Love that!
