Chanel Orange Fizz Nail Colour Review & Swatch

Chanel Orange Fizz Le Vernis Nail Colour ($23.00) is part of Chanel’s summer makeup collection. It’s described as a “coral,” which is a fairly accurate description. I’d say it runs more like an orange-coral than a pink-coral though, and I think that is something important to note. It’s a creamy, opaque orange-coral with a semi-glossy finish. It isn’t too glossy, which helps make it more subdued, despite the brightness of the hue. I think this is a great color for tips and toes during the summer season!

Chanel Cote d’Azur Summer Sneak Peek

Chanel’s Cote d’Azur Summer Collection definitely stirred up some beauty temptations when we first learned about it. I ended up with most of the collection, and you’ll definitely get a full review soon :) I thought I’d break it up a bit, so you can at least get a sneak peek for now! My Nordstrom did have the summer collection on counter already, so I bet yours does, too — if you and Chanel are likethis, get your bum over to your local beauty counter!
