Chanel Bleu Trompeur nail polish review

Well, you know, I’m a sucker for anything blue! Chanel released four spring 2018 nail polish colors mid-season, and this new blue one caught my eye. It’s a light navy color, which fits perfectly into spring’s classic color palette.

Over the years, Chanel has released plenty of versions of navy blue nail polish. This isn’t a ground-breaking, or earth-shattering, color; but it is a really pretty navy blue. It isn’t a super dark navy, like Chanel typically releases in the fall season. Bleu Trompeur nail polish is a medium navy blue, which is lighter then other navy colors in Chanel’s nail polish line.

I tested out Chanel Bleu Trompeur nail polish for spring 2018 with one base coat, and two coats of color. I did not use a top coat. I have found that Chanel nail polish doesn’t really need a top coat anymore; since the release of their longwear collection a few years ago. Like with other Chanel colors, Bleu Trompeur is long lasting, and gave me a week before chipping. Love that!

If you are looking for a neutral yet non-conservative nail color this spring 2018 season, then Chanel Bleu Trompeur nail polish is for you! Navy is an easy color to wear with all color groups from the spring palette. Since Blue Trompeur isn’t a classic pink or red hue-yet it still acts like a neutral color while it gives off a playful, avant-garde vibe; which is a great way to to be neutral, without wearing a neutral. Love it!

What do you think of this color for spring? Will you be rocking it? Or do you prefer more of a classic hue such as pink or red?

Chanel Violet Piquant nail polish review for spring 2018

Chanel Violet Piquant nail polish is a late spring release from Chanel for the warm weather season. Often referred to as “Act II” from Chanel, four new nail polish colors have been released for spring 2018; and this is my favorite color from the bunch!

As you know, purple or “Ultra Violet” is the color of 2018. So, to see Chanel release a fabulous violet version of their own for spring has me spinning with delight! I love purple; and I love Chanel nail polish, so this is the dream nail color of the century for me! Love!

Chanel Violet Piquant nail polish is a dark, violet hue which could easily be mistaken for a fall nail color. If you want to rock the color of the year on your nails for the duration of 2018, this is the color to wear! It is dark, almost-vampy, and a beautiful violet hue.

I tested out Chanel Violet Piquant with one base coat, and two coats of colors. I did not use a top coat. As with most Chanel nail polishes, it is long lasting and offers beautiful color saturation. Since the polish is dark, the second coat needs to be carefully applied in order to prevent streaking. I did need to do a third coat on two nails which were not covered enough. Even with three coats, those two nails did not bumble or look thick. It looks just as chic with three coats as with two. Love this polish!

What do you think of Chanel Violet Piquant nail polish for the spring 2018 season? Is this a color you would like to wear for the entire year as a nod to :Ultra Violet?”

Chanel nail polish spring 2018 review

Spring has sprung! Well. . . at least in nail polish land. haha! Chanel has brightened up this cold weather, with a beautiful spring 2018 nail polish collection filled with bright, cherry hues. Love!

The Chanel nail polish collection for spring 2018 is filled with four, very vivid colors which are going to make the spring season fun, light-hearted, and cheerful!

The four colors from the Chanel spring 2018 nail polish collection are cream polishes with a high gloss finish. They are color saturated, and offer a vivid version of red-orange, cool lilac, mellow yellow, and green-blue.

Despite the fact that Chanel introduced a flatter application brush in the winter 2018 collection, they have foregone the new brush in favor of the old application brush for the spring 2018 nail polish collection. These four spring hues offer the traditional Chanel application brush; which is fine with me, I think the old brush is easier to use then the flat brush from the winter collection.

Chanel nail polish spring 2018 : Chanel Arancio Vibrante

chanel arancio vibrante nail polish spring 2018 review

Chanel Arancio Vibrante nail polish for spring 2018 is a bright red-orange hue which looks more orange in natural light, and more red in artificial light. This photo was taken during morning golden hour outside, so you can see the true color in natural light.

Aracio Vibrante by Chanel is a cream polish, which applies evenly in two coats, with one base coat. This is a great color for red nail polish fans who want a hue which is on trend for the spring 2018 season. It is also fabulous for people like me who shy away from red nail polish; it isn’t really red, but can pass for reddish, so it is a great option for a classic look.

Chanel nail polish spring 2018 : Chanel Giallo Napoli

chanel giallo napoli nail polish spring 2018 review

I normally gravitate towards blues, purples, and greens when it comes to nail polish, but for some reason, I am in love with this bright yellow polish! Chanel Giallo Napoli nail polish is my favorite hue from the Chanel spring 2018 nail polish collection. This is a bright, cheery hue which is fun, happy, and hot off the runway. I love it! This spring, it looks like I will break away from my usual hues and rock this yellow one! Loving it!

Chanel Giallo Napoli nail polish is a cream polish which needed three coats of color, and one base coat. The polish applies in thin layers, so it needs three coats. Despite using three coats, it did not look too thick on my nails. The three layers were for color saturation, and to avoid streaking, not creating depth. It turned out to be a pretty manicure.

This is the perfect color for standing out from the crowd this spring 2018 season! I think this might be the color I wear to fashion week this season, it is so much fun!

Chanel spring 2018 nail polish : Chanel Nuvola Rosa

chanel nuvola rosa nail polish spring 2018 review

This is not your grandmother’s rose nail polish. Chanel Nuvola Rosa nail polish for spring 2018 is a rose slash lilac hue which is edgy, and the perfect pink for non-pink people. This will also be my go-to neutral nail polish hue for spring; it’s not a real neutral per se. . .but it acts like one!

I tested out Chanel Nuvola Rosa with two coats of color and one base coat. This is a nice cream polish which applies evenly, and the color packs a big punch. Love!

Chanel spring 2018 nail polish : Chanel Verde Pastello

chanel verde pastello nail polish review

Chanel Verde Pastello was my favorite color out of the box from the spring 2018 collection, and it is a very pretty color, but it looks too similar to Chanel’s winter 2018 hue Chanel Vert No. 19 for me to jump for joy. If you already purchased Vert no. 19 from the winter collection, you may not need Verde Pastello in your collection. Verde Pastello is about four shades lighter then Vert No. 19, so, if this color is your jam, you have the option of the slightly darker winter hue, or this brighter spring hue. They are both beautiful colors, and I love them both, but you don’t need to own both.

I tested out Chanel Verde Pastello nail polish with two coats of color and one base coat. This is a cream polish, and as with other Chanel cream polishes, it applies evenly and offers ideal color saturation. Love this color!!

The Chanel nail polish spring 2018 collection is full of bright, vivid hues which are both fun and beautiful. I can’t wait to rotate through them all this spring season. I love all four colors, and feel they are great additions to a nail polish wardrobe. Which color is your favorite?
