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.

:O Amazed by the prettiness! Is it me, or usually the best things are LE? Can’t even find the dupe as they don’t sell China Glaze in Spain and am currently on an Ebay strict diet 🙁
Oh well thanks to you at least I get to look at very good swatches, thanks! 🙂

I’m not sure how this will look on my skin (pinky), but it seems so pretty and it definitely looks to be the most original of the three Spring shades. I might have to take a chance on it…

Aaahh~ I’ve been obsessed with this one for a long time since I happen to have a jelly sandal of this color. I can’t wait for summer to come again. Thank you for the great swatch 🙂

no way! i ordered this on nordstrom.com and tried it on for a week but i didn’t like it at all so i ended up returning it..but it looks so nice on your nails! 🙁

Nice color but there is nothing so unique about it that would make me wanna spend $25 on it. I purchased Peridot a few months ago because the color was so beautiful and unique that it was definitely worth the investment.

by the way~~~ I went to macy’s and saw this in person~ and……I bought it hahahahha (This is probably my biggest nail polish splurge)

I always buy more things if they are limited edition (I’m afraid that they are going to run out if I don’t buy them right away)
I like the other two polishes too but since they are not limited edition I feel like I can wait a little bit.

Looks kinda like a muted/paler version of Zoya Jancyn, IMO. Conveniently, I just got a bottle of that, haha, so my “summery oranges” itch is scratched already 🙂

That price, especially – oy vey, does that hurt me. I passed on Peridot even though it’s my birthstone and despite the multichrome awesomeness simply because of that little stickler point.

sadly, the price of all Chanel polishes went up on Nordstrom to $26, i don’t know if it’s the same elsewhere, but it was a little annoying when a week ago it was $25…
