Chanel Beige Petale Le Vernis

Chanel Beige Petale Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a sheer, barely beige tinted polish. Over my nails, it just neutralizes some of the natural pinkness of my nails, but honestly, that’s really a stretch–I could hardly tell if there was any color deposited after two/three coats (swatches are shown with four coats). The only way I knew I had polish on was that the ones with it were glossy! Maybe there is a slight milkiness, but this is really, really sheer. I found the formula a little thick and did not flow as easily as the other two shades from this launch as well, but since there was little color, it didn’t seem to impair the results.

Chanel Morning Rose Le Vernis Swatches, Photos, Reviews

Chanel Morning Rose Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a warm, rosy pink with gold glitter. It’s a really nice yellow-based pink, and for warmer skin tones, it’ll be a lovely shade for spring and summer (since I know not all of us are feeling like summer is right around the corner!). It reminded me of Chanel Mistral, but warmer and more golden glitter. The formula was good; not too thick or thin, flowed evenly, and applied opaque in two coats. I typically get a week of wear using a base/top coat with Chanel’s Le Vernis.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Gray’s Anatomy Fast Dry Nail Color

Wet ‘n’ Wild Gray’s Anatomy Fast Dry Nail Color ($1.99 for 0.46 fl. oz.) is a semi-sheer duochrome featuring both a murky, grayish green and an iridescent but played down violet. Under flash, it photographed as a purple polish and didn’t come across as sheer. In natural light, the grayish-green cast is more noticeable while the violet takes a backseat. The duochrome is there, but it isn’t as strong as it could be, due to the sheerness of the formula. I see this working better as a layering shade than alone. I did three coats and it wasn’t anywhere near opaque.

Estee Lauder Shimmering Bronze Nail Lacquer

Estee Lauder Shimmering Bronze Nail Lacquer ($19.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a shimmering, red-enriched bronze with subtle metallic threads running through an otherwise copper and bronze shimmered finish. I used two coats for complete opacity, and it applied easily. The polish flowed without being too thick or thin, and each coat was nicely pigmented. I have no problem achieving a full week’s worth of wear out of Estee Lauder’s formula (with a proper base/top coat, of course). For swatches, I used Zoya’s Anchor and Armor for my base and top coats.
