Sure, it’s pretty. Sure, it looks perfect. Sure, I nearly tore my hair out trying to achieve perfection. When I emailed my sis to say “I want to kill it until it is dead,” she replied, “Not all Chanels can be winners.” She’s spot on. It’s pretty ’n all, but in my book, it’s not a winner. Not even close. Too much work to get to perfect. When a polish costs as much as Chanel Le Vernis does, I want the brush and the polish to do the work for me. Would I buy this one? Nope – check out that cuticle gap – Gah!

People often tell me I only wear in-yer-face shades and it’s not true. The truth is they only notice the in-yer-face shades. Sometimes I wear stuff like Chanel Sweet Lilac because I adore the sweetness of it. I mean, look at it. Right? This Chanel polish is a winner in three thin coats and I didn’t even top coat. It feels like all kinds of spring to me – summer, not so much.
