This is a very long overdue swatch post, but it has some bonus nail art which I hope you enjoy. This time I have Chanel Rouge Red 546 from the spring 2017 collection.
Every year it seems, Chanel come out with a new red polish. They have subtly different colour undertones, so if you already know what suits your skin tone, this should help you make a decision between them.
I’m finally back with some new Chanel Spring 2017 swatches and these posts are always really popular content here. I thought that the colours they chose were more autumnal than spring-like, but Chanel have a new-ish creative director, so maybe that’s why. The last few collections, like Summer 2016, were kind of unexpected shades, unlike some of the candy-inspired colours you expect at this time of year.
I got so excited when I saw this polish was available through Rainbow Connection. It’s full of glitters that change colour depending on the angle you see them from. This is my first polish from this brand, and it’s inspired by Friends. Native War Paints The One With The… is a beautiful polish.
This week’s challenge on Nail Art Nation was set by me and is Gothic-inspired nail art. Deep, dark and mysterious! I chose to do Gothic Nail Art with lace and roses, and a thermal peek-a-boo black topcoat, which has just the right amount of glitter. I love this design, because the thermal top coat gives it such a changeable look.
After my woeful attempt at watermarbling with my pastel neons (you can click on that if you want to feel better about your own skills) I decided that I needed some neon polishes that were suitable for the job. I shopped around, and with the able assistance of my US-based polish mule, I got my digits on the Fun Days and Neon Craze collection from In The Name of Polish. I had to start with a Neon Watermarble Starburst to test them out.
I’ve seen photos of this design a few times and I think Bracelet Nails are going to be the next big trend in nail art. It involves a sheer or nude base, with thin, roughly horizontal lines near the tip, loaded with nail jewellery like a charm bracelet. This is my take on it!
