Chanel June Le Vernis
Chanel Spring 2012: Chanel June Le Vernis
Chanel June Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “pastel apricot.” This is a limited edition shade (whereas the other two spring lacquers were not listed as limited). It’s a creamy, lightened orange that’s opaque in two coats. It reminded me of a Creamsicle. China Glaze Peachykeen was the closest dupe I could think of, but it reads less orange. China Glaze Papaya Punch is much, much more intense, brighter, and deeper, but continues in a similar vein.
The formula on this one is good; pigmented enough to deliver opaque color coverage in two coats. It’s not too thick or thin, so it covers the nail evenly without pooling or bubbling. The drying time seemed average (unlike May), which is always nice. I usually get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chips with Chanel’s formula.
