You all know I covet limited edition, highly-exclusive products. Hence, I HAD to purchase all 4 pieces in the Chanel Noir et Or collection, which I had sent to me from a NY Chanel Boutique. I know there are two but I forget which.
The Chanel sales associate that rung me up, however, charged me a whopping $25 [the cost of ONE varnish, pre-tax!!!] for Fed-Ex 2-day shipping. I was further annoyed when my package actually took 3 days to arrive and on top of that, I had to drive 30 minutes to the most obscure Fed-Ex location to pick it up when there's a perfectly good Fed-Ex right down the street. Okay, that's my little rant for now but I am in LOVE with all four products.
These are my first 3 Chanel nail varnishes. And I'm not quite sure why but I've really been loving nail varnishes these days. It's strange. I'll update this post with photos of the colors on my fingernails soon because I'm going to get a manicure to celebrate my birthday on SUNDAY! And yes, I am finally turning 21 =)
The cake liner and gold shadow duo is out of this world. I love yellow gold and this Chanel shadow is so smooth. I won't say that it's the best shadow I've ever used but the color is to die for and that cake liner, wow! It's so rich and pigmented. It dries to a velvet finish and I'm absolutely obsessed. I wish I had purchased the Limited Edition Brun Cake Liner duo when I had a chance. Maybe I'll get lucky and snatch up the last one at a counter somewhere hehe
Anyway, these pictures are quite awful since I snapped them at night but they're definitely worth a look if you want to pick them up before they're gone! Once I get my nails done, I'll be sure to take pictures in natural light so you can see how beautiful the colors truly are.
P.S. I realize I've been neglecting this blog but believe me, I'll do my best to update it as much as possible from now on!
