I am so excited to announce the Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish collection has arrived! The fall collection was nice, but didn’t really excite me like Chanel nail polish tends to do every season. So when the Chanel holiday 2018 beauty collection hit store shelves, I was thrilled! These colors are fabulous!!!

There are two beautiful colors in the Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish collection; Chanel Flamboyance and Chanel Opulence. One hue is a twist on a traditional Christmas color, while the other is bordering on avant-garde, love that!

Since these two nail polish colors are so pretty, I have immediately switched from fall nails to holidays nails; and plan to wear these colors throughout the entire season. They are THAT fabulous! I’m really excited about Chanel Opulence, which I feel is a great color for transitioning from fall into the holiday season. Chanel Flamboyance will be my go-to after Thanksgiving since it is the perfect color for the holiday season. I’m excited-I hope you are too!!

So, without further ado, here are the two fabulous hues from the Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish collection!

Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish: Flamboyance

How pretty is this color! Chanel Flamboyance is a classic cherry pie red with a twist. It has sparkles! Who doesn’t love sparkles during the holiday season! I wish I had the ability to post a video on my blog in order to show you how sparkly this polish really is. It’s a beautiful cherry pie red with just the right amount of  pink undertones. When mixed with the sparkles-which are much smaller than glitter bits-this polish offers a festive sophistication you will want to wear all. the. time!

I tested out Chanel Flamboyance nail polish for the 2018 holiday season with one base coat, and two coats of color. It was chip resistance, and offered a smooth, even color without any streaks. It’s beautiful! I’m not normally a red nail polish kind of gal, but this color is really pretty, and I love the sparkles; so I will definitely be rocking it after Thanksgiving for the holiday season.

Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish: Opulence

OK, Chanel Opulence is my favorite color of the two hues in Chanel’s holiday 2018 beauty collection. While I am in love with both colors, this one is beyond fabulous. I tried really hard to capture the two personalities of this color with my camera. When I photographed it straight on, the gold sheen showed up perfectly. I tried to turn my hand and find the right angle to capture the purplish-red hues in the color; which is the photo on the bottom. The photo still didn’t capture the depth of the color, but I think you can see how the polish changes color in light, or according to angle. I hope!

Chanel Opulence nail polish is a beautiful golden red hue for the holiday season. It looks different in various lights, and also at alternate angles. It’s such a fun nail polish! The golden red has both a fall vibe, and a holiday look to it; which makes it the perfect nail polish hue for transitioning from the fall 2018 season into the holiday 2018 season. Love that!

I tested out Chanel Opulence nail polish from the Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish collection with one base coat, and two coats of color. Just like most of Chanel’s longwear nail polishes, Opulence by Chanel was chip resistant and offered an even, streak-free application. It’s such a pretty polish!

Chanel nail polish fall 2018 review

The fabulous new nail polish collection for the fall 2018 season from Chanel has arrived! “Le Mat de Chanel” is an autumn beauty collection filled with shades of deep dark burgundy and classic red; all matte. There is nothing shiny, sparkly, or glittery about Chanel’s fall 2018 make-up collection. It is dark, autumnal, serious, and very matte.

Instead of three or four nail polish hues for the fall season, as Chanel normally puts out for a big season, there are two colors. Chanel Profondeur is a deep, burgundy hue which is vampy and quite fall-like. Chanel Ultime is a traditional classic red hue with a twist. The matte finish makes it an understated and very serious red. I love these two colors!

For the fall 2018 season, we are seeing a more traditional autumn color palette. Colors are darker, more understated, and offer a 1970s vintage vibe. The two new nail polish colors from the Chanel “Le Mat de Chanel” fall 2018 beauty collection fit right into what we will be seeing on store shelves for the upcoming cool weather season. This makes both colors easy to wear as we transition from summer into fall; especially Chanel Ultime nail polish since it is a classic red hue with a matte finish. This is a color that can easily be worn now, and as we move into the fall season.

Chanel nail polish fall 2018: Chanel Ultime

chanel ultime fall 2018 nail polish review matte velvet mat chanel nail polish fall 2018

Chanel Ultime velvet nail polish for fall 2018 is a medium red hue which appear to be a classic scarlet color when first applied. As the nail polish dries, the matte finish appears which gives nails a softer yet vibrant red hue. I normally shy away from red nail polishes, but Chanel Ultime’s matte finish makes this an easy red nail polish to wear. I don’t feel like my nails are flashy with Ultime, the matte finish gives them a surprisingly understated look. Love that!

In order to test out Chanel Ultime nail polish, I used one base coat and two coats of color. The nail polish went on smoothly, and evenly, in two coats. It did not streak or leave bubbles. This was an easy application! As with other Chanel nail polish hues, Ultime by Chanel is chip resistant and long lasting.

I mentioned earlier that this color will be great to wear as we move from summer into fall. Well, I meant it! Since Chanel Ultime is a classic red hue, it can be worn with our current wardrobes as well as into the fall season. In fact, it is such a timeless hue that Ultime by Chanel could easily be worn during all four seasons. Love!

Chanel nail polish fall 2018: Chanel Profondeur

I wanted Chanel Profondeur to be my favorite of the two autumn hues, but it leaves streaks when applied. In the photo above, you can see it with one base coat and two coats of color. In order to get a solid application, Chanel Profondeur needs three coats. Aside from the extra step in application, this is a really nail polish hues. The matte finish offers a little edgy vibe to the otherwise classic fall color.

Chanel Ultime and Chanel Profondeur are both fabulous nail polish colors which will easily carry us through the fall season. The matte finish gives both of them a fresh and unique look for the autumn season; plus there is something understated yet edgy about matte. Such a contradiction-but so true!

Which of the two fall colors are your favorite? The Chanel fall 2018 nail polish collection is joined by an eye shadow quad featuring shades of brown, and matte lip crayons. You can find the Chanel fall 2018 “Le Mat de Chanel” beauty collection online here.

Chanel nail polish summer 2018 | Chanel cruise 2019 nail polish colors

Normally this time of year, Chanel releases new nail polish colors for the summer 2018 season. Starting last year, they released colors from their Cruise show, throwing the seasons off kilter! The spring 2018 collection released at the end of December, was labeled for spring and summer; although with six nail polish collections released throughout the year, it’s hard to imagine those colors being the end-all-be-all through both the spring and summer seasons.

Now, these colors could quite possibly be sold out by the time the resort/cruise 2019 season arrives, therefore, these colors should be worn now! Chanel will undoubtedly release new colors during the upcoming cruise/resort 2019 season anyway, so why wait until then!? These are the newest nail polish colors by Chanel, so they are presumably the summer 2018 collection. Thought you could confuse us Chanel, didn’t ya?

These new nail polish colors from Chanel for the summer 2018 season, or Cruise 2019, whichever you prefer, are a fabulous contrast to the brighter colors we are seeing in nails for the summer 2018 season. If bright colors aren’t your thing, this is the nail polish collection you have been dreaming about for the summer season!

Without further ado, here are the three hues you will be rocking this summer season as the yin to Dior’s bright summer colors and Chanel’s bright spring/summer colors yang!

Chanel nail polish summer 2018 | Chanel cruise 2019 nail polish: Chanel Chicness

Chanel Chicness nail polish is a muted, beige/purple hue. This is a great color for when you want to wear a nude nail, but can’t actually bring yourself to do it. It’s like a dark beige which is heavily infused with purple. It’s fabulous; and great for travel since the color plays well with most color palettes.

Chanel nail polish summer 2018 | Chanel cruise 2019 nail polish: Chanel Halo

This is the perfect pink for classic nail lovers! Chanel Halo nail polish is a really pretty pink. It’s a vibrant pink which adds just the right amount of brightness to your nails, without being edgy. Chanel Halo is the ideal color if you are a pink and red nail polish fan. I love the candy-colored hue, which plays well with all of summer’s color palettes.

Chanel nail polish summer 2018 | Chanel cruise 2019 nail polish: Chanel Legerete

chanel legerete nail polish summer 2018 review

When I first got my hands on the Chanel summer 2018 nail polish collection, I assumed Chanel Chicness would be my favorite; I was wrong. Chanel Legerete nail polish is my favorite! This hue is akin to a warm military green which has faded. I love it. Seriously cannot get enough of it. This color plays well with any outfit, and it’s different then what other designers are showing for the season; so it’s a bit unique in that respect. I can’t wait to wear Chanel Legerete nail polish as an alternative to the brighter hues I plan to wear from the Dior summer collection.

We will be rocking these Chanel Cruise 2019 colors as the Chanel nail polish summer 2018 collection. At the end of this year, we will dive into the new colors which Chanel will undoubtedly release for the resort/cruise 2019 season. As for now, happy summer!
