Happy National Nail Polish Day 2021! Don’t you just love a day dedicated to celebrating nail polish? It’s fabulous!

In honor of this great day, I wanted to highlight the Dior and Chanel summer nail polish collections. They are both quite different, with opposite vibes, yet both are relevant, and downright beautiful. Love!

The Chanel summer 2021 nail polish collection offers a calming, desert sand vibe which is filled with neutral hues that sparkle. I love a good sparkle. Dior, on the other hand, went with vibrant hues that pop and say “wow!” This is fabulous because if we want something powerful we can go with one of Dior’s summer colors. If we are in more of a mellow, neutral mood, Chanel has the hue for us! We are covered! Love!

What color are you wearing on your nails this fine, National Nail Polish Day? I am currently rocking Chanel Solar on my hands, and Chanel Glimmer on my toes.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy National Nail Polish Day 2021!

Neutrals abound for summer 2021 from the Chanel beauty collection! The Chanel summer beauty collection, “Les Beiges Summer Light,” is focused on neutral hues, which range from pale beige through to shades of brown. The collection includes bronzer, eye shadow, lipstick, and of course, four fabulous shades of nail polish!

The Chanel summer 2021 nail polish collection offers four neutral hues which all include shimmer. I love shimmer nail polish! There is nothing like a sparkling nail; not a glitter nail, just a hint of fabulous sparkle. Love that!

These are four colors which will be easy to wear throughout the summer season, and play well with any summer color palette we all choose to wear. The darker hues will also be perfect for transitioning from summer into fall. Love!

I tested the Chanel nail polish summer 2021 collection with one base coat, and two coats of color; no top coat. All four colors went on smoothly without streaking. As with all of Chanel’s nail polishes, they are chip resistant, and long lasting.

Without further ado, here are the four nail polish hues from the Chanel nail polish summer 2021 collection.

Chanel nail polish summer 2021 | Chanel Glimmer

Chanel Glimmer nail polish is an extremely pale, pinkish-beige hue with slight sparkle. This is a great color if you are looking for something pale and professional. I could say this is the best hue out of the four colors for a conservative office environment.

Glimmer by Chanel will also be a great color for travel this summer. Since it is pale, if it chips while you are on vacation, you won’t have to worry about the chip or scratch being visible. I also feel like Chanel Glimmer nail polish is perfect for toes. It will play well with any open toe shoe color or sandal. Love that!

Chanel nail polish summer 2021 | Chanel Sunlight

Chanel Sunlight nail polish is a light and cool, sparkling beige polish. This hue has cool undertones, making it a great color to pair with cooler color palettes this summer such as shades of blue, pink, purple, green, and of course, black! I love this color for warm summer days and beach excursions. It’s so pretty!

Chanel nail polish summer 2021 | Chanel Golden Sand

Looking for a warm summer nail polish? Chanel Golden Sand nail polish is a warm and sparkling hue. This polish has warm undertones making it ideal for warmer color palettes this summer such as shades of orange, red, yellow, brown, beige, and of course, gold! This is a beautiful neutral nail polish, I plan to wear it often this summer.

Chanel nail polish summer 2021 | Chanel Solar

This is the ideal brown! Shades of beige, tan, and brown are hot this summer season. This makes Chanel Solar right on trend, and perfect for fitting into the neural apparel and accessories trend. Chanel Solar is my favorite nail polish from the collection, and it has the most noticeable sparkles! Love!

Solar by Chanel is also a great color to wear in late summer, and early fall. I would name it as the best color from the collection for transitioning from the summer season, into autumn. I am already addicted to this hue. Solar works well with both cool and warm color palettes, so it blends with everything in my closet; and I am sure yours too! While you might expect a darker brown for the fall season, and not summer, this is a color hot off the runways for the summer season. So brown is right on trend for summer this year. Love!

There you have it! The four colors from the Chanel nail polish summer 2021 collection. What do you think? Which color from the collection is your favorite?

Chanel Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick review

Chanel has a new lipstick! Get excited!! The new Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick collection is a hydrating and plumping lipstick line which offers strong pigmentation and shine. Love!

I don’t do fillers, so plumping lipsticks are always a fun way to plump up the lips. Normally, when I try a plumping lipstick, there is a tingling sensation as the lipstick has an ingredient which irritates the lip skin, which in turn, makes the lips plump up. Chanel would never do that to us. There is nothing irritating about this lipstick. That being said, I didn’t really see a plumping effect either. So, there’s that. . .

This lipstick does do something which I love. Chanel’s Rouge Coco Bloom lipsticks offer the pigmentation of a cream lipstick combined with the moisture and shine of their regular rouge coco lipstick collection. This makes the Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick collection the best of both worlds; pigment and moisture. Love that!

I am a huge fan of Chanel’s various rouge coco lipstick lines. They are always moisturizing, and they offer the right color when I need it. If you are looking for a lightweight lipstick with strong pigmentation, but don’t want to wear a liquid lipstick or a cream lipstick, then this is your new lipstick!

For spring, I purchased three colors, which you can see above. I plan on purchasing lipstick from this collection again in future seasons. The pigmentation combined with the lightweight, moisturizing formula, makes this a great alternative to a cream lipstick. Love!
