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!

Chanel Cruise 2020 nail polish review for summer 2019

The Chanel Cruise 2019/20 collection is one of the last collections Karl Lagerfeld worked on. With that said, there is something nostalgic about this beauty collection; even though designers typically outsource beauty, and he may not have had a huge part in the choosing of these colors. I will just pretend that he did! haha

The past couple of years, Chanel has been releasing their Cruise makeup collection at the time of year when they traditionally had released their summer collections. This switch is a bit confusing as many of us are looking for summer inspiration for our wardrobes at this time of year; I don’t think of the cruise or resort season until I am done with the holiday season! But, that could just be me. . .so. . .I digress. . .

Instead of talking about the Chanel summer 2019 nail polish collection, here we are thinking six months ahead, to the Chanel Cruise 2020 beauty collection; shortly after the runway show. I have to say, although I was looking for summer, and found cruise, and I am not sad. These colors are fabulous! I can totally rock these cruise collection hues during the warm summer months, after all, they are both vacation, warm weather seasons; right?!

For the Cruise 2019/20 beauty collection, Chanel has given us hues which play well with both warm, and cool color palettes. We can wear purple nails with warm hues, or cool hues; now that’s nail innovation! Chanel Purple Ray is a warm purple nail polish, which plays well with this year’s color hues, as well as purple hues. On the cool purple side, Chanel Open Air is a cool purple hue with blue undertones which is absolutely fabulous. There are several lipstick colors which are equally wearable, as well as classic eye colors. This is a beautiful collection!

So, without further ado, here is a review of my favorite makeup items from the Chanel Cruise 2019/20 beauty collection!

Chanel Cruise 2020 nail polish: Afterglow

Chanel Afterglow nail polish from the Cruise 2020 beauty collection is a clean and classic beige polish perfect for everyday wear. This is a great color to wear on a daily basis, and if you have a bright, colorful palette for the summer or cruise season, this is the polish color for you. This will also be a fabulous nail polish for travel since when it chips, you cannot see the chips. I plan to wear Chanel Afterglow nail polish when I travel this summer 2019 vacation season. Love it!

Chanel Cruise 2020 nail polish: Purple Ray

Chanel Purple Ray nail polish is a beautiful beige-purple nail polish hue from the Chanel Cruise 2029/20 beautiful collection. This is a clean and fresh purple which can be worn now, in the summer 2019 season, as an everyday color. If you typically wear a warm color palette, this is the purple nail color for you this summer or cruise season. Chanel Purple Ray nail polish is a warm purple with a slight beige undertone. It’s a light purple, and easy to wear on a daily basis. It looks very chic! Love!

Chanel Cruise 2020 nail polish: Open Air

How fabulous is this purple hue! I am in love! Chanel Open Air nail polish from the Chanel Cruise 2020 beauty collection is a cool purple shade with blue undertones. It’s my favorite of the three resort colors, and I am in love! I know this is the color I will be wearing on a daily basis this summer 2019 season. It’s a great compliment to my predominantly blue wardrobe, and it works perfectly with the current color trends for the summer season, as well as the upcoming cruise season of course! I’m looking forward to wearing Chanel Open Air nail polish often this summer 2019 season, as well as the upcoming cruise 2020 season. Love it!

The entire Cruise 2019/20 beauty collection from Chanel is fabulous. I love all the lipstick colors, and eye makeup colors. For my summer makeup bag, I picked up two lipsticks from the cruise 2020 collection, and one eye pencil. The lipstick colors I picked up are Chanel Lumiere lipstick, which is a daytime beige, and Chanel Contraste lipstick which is a fabulous and dramatic hue for evening occasions; and days when I am feeling a bit bold! These are pretty lipstick colors which are not a flat cream lipstick, they add more of a shine with color to the lips without caking or looking unnatural.  Chanel Coco lipsticks are my favorite type of lipstick to wear, they are moisturizing and look amazing. Love!!

Dior nail polish spring 2019

Let’s face it, my favorite color is blue. So, when I spotted Dior Blue Drop nail polish from the Dior nail polish spring 2019 collection, I knew I had to have it in my nail polish wardrobe. Blue Drop by Dior is one of four spring 2019 nail polish colors from Dior’s spring/summer 2019 beauty collection. While all of the colors are stunning, Blue Drop is the hue that caught my eye.

The spring /summer 2019 nail polish collection from Dior includes a beautiful orange hue named “Orange Sienna,” a classic brown color named “Wild Earth,” a golden shade named “Terra Gold,” and of course, “Blue Drop.” These colors are all limited edition, and are already selling out. If you like one of them, snap it up now!

Dior nail polish is long lasting, and chip resistant. They use gel coat resins which combine and help to make the nail polish strong, shiny, and resistant to chips. I find Dior nail polish can last for well over a week without chipping during normal wear. In the photo above, I am wearing one base coat, and two coats of color. I recommend adding a top coat for the longest lasting results.

The spring 2019 season has two color trends; mixed neutrals, and bright colors. Dior’s spring 2019 nail polish collection works well with both of these color combinations, making it an easy collection to wear daily during the spring and summer months. I love the pop of blue when worn with neutral hues, as well as when worn in combination with brighter colors.
