Chanel Tenderly is a fabulous, cool purple hue from Chanel’s spring 2015 beauty collection “Reverie Parisienne.” This pretty color is on the darker side of the lavender family making it a great nail polish for transitioning from winter into spring. Love that!

With all the shades of blue in the spring 2015 color palette, a purple hue is an ideal nail polish color to contrast with, yet play well with, the spring seasons’ color palette. Personally, I love blue and purple together!

I tested out Chanel Tenderly nail polish for spring 2015 with two coats of color, one base coat, and no top coat. The color was long lasting and did not chip until day seven! Love that! Chanel Tenderly nail polish offers a high shine finish which applies like a cream nail polish. It does not look streaky or allow any gaps after the second coat. Perfection.

It will be difficult for me to choose between painting my nails with Tenderly or Paradisio this spring season. I love them both so much!

Nars Sherwood nail polish for winter 2015 review

nars sherwood nail polish review

Nars has a fabulous collection of nail polishes for the winter 2015 season. The colors are cool and ideal for the winter 2015 color palette. I love this winter 2015 nail polish from Nars; Sherwood. Sherwood by Nars is a beautiful, medium purple nail polish hue which is easy to wear with pastels, bright colors and neutrals. Love that!

I tested out Nars Sherwood nail polish with one base coat and two coats of color. The nail polish held up well and lasted six days with only one small chip on my index finger. I love the subtle sparkles in the nail polish which add dimension to the color. 

Nars also has a fabulous nail polish application brush which is flat and the perfect size for gliding easily on my nails. Nars nail polish applies smoothly and does not make a mess; huge plus! The brush is easy to balance too. Another huge plus!

I am looking forward to wearing Nars Sherwood nail polish this winter 2015 season. To find Nars Sherwood nail polish and the winter 2015 beauty collection online, please click here and here.

Christian Louboutin Lova nail polish review

Christian Louboutin Lova Christian Louboutin nail polish

Christian Louboutin nail polish is the first real fusion between high heels and nails. Inspired by the original red nail polish Christian Louboutin snatched from the hands of a co-worker to paint the soles of a pair of high heels, Christian Louboutin introduced a collection of nail polish in noirs, nudes and pops for the fall 2014 season. One of The “Pops” is “Lova.”

When Christian Louboutin first annouced he was launching a line of nail laquers, I was intrigued. I always love gazing at his collection of high heels; even if they are not always practical enough for my own wardrobe. As the owner of two pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes, I already am a fan of work, and as a fan of nail polish, this launch excited me!

Christian Louboutin first introduced a red nail polish hue to kick off his collection which matched the trademark red soles of his shoe collection. As someone who owns way too many bottles of red nail polish, I passed on this initial launch. When the next wave of colors came out from Christian Louboutins’ nail polish collection, I was thrilled! I love the collection of nudes, noirs and pops the famed shoe designer introduced for the fall season.

From the collection of pops, I chose this beautiful purple hue named “Lova.” “Lova” by Christian Louboutin is a fabulous, bright purple color which can easily be worn during any season of the year. The color looks amazing with fall’s berry color palette; as well as with shades of blue. Since varying shades of blue is going to be an important color trend for the upcoming spring 2015 season, Christian Louboutin “Lova” nail polish is the perfect hue to both blend and contrast with this upcoming trend.

The application process for Christian Louboutin nail polish is little bit different than traditional nail polishes on the market. Instead of a short handle for holding while applying the nail polish, I had to actually hold the stiletto shaped top. It is a little bit difficult to maneuver because in addition to the long top, the brush is shorter than other nail polish brushes I am accustomed to using when I paint my nails. Although the brush was a bit challenging for me, I persevered and was able to adapt by dipping the brush more often.

Christian Louboutin “Lova” nail polish ended up looking beautiful after two coats of color. I used one base coat and did not use a top coat. The color turned out even and saturated; extremely beautiful! Although I did receive a tiny chip on my index finger within twenty-four hours of wearing Christian Louboutin “Lova” nail polish, I did not receive any additional chips or cracks. The nail polish lasted for one week and looked fabulous! I look forward to testing out more nail polish hues from Christian Louboutin this season; and in future seasons!
