Ah Chanel, you purveyor of polish goodness that is in high demand across the world. I’ll be honest, much as I love the last few Chanel polishes I have bought, a little voice inside my head keeps telling me the formula is not as good a it used to be. To a point, that voice is right. But along comes Summertime De Chanel 2012 and the fantastic hot orange that is Holiday.
Holiday is a super saturated, intense, hot orange creme that could not have had a better name. It sunshine, sun screen, ice creams and beaches all in one bottle but is not a neon. In fact, its a complete blinder.
The formula on this is flawless (HURRAH!), glides on the nail like butter with prefect consistency. It dries well and evenly. Plus if you are a thick coater, you probably could get away with one coat. What you see above is two with a coat of Seche Vite for extra shine, although it does dry glossy so the top coat is for wear extending purposes.
And I love it. Love it! Wear is amazing, plus I’ve had it on my toes since I bought it (10 days and counting) and its such a flattering colour on any skin tone. I actually bought this as they were unpacking the delivery in the store, which is surprising as usually they get them a few days early.
If you only buy one polish from the extensive Summer Collections (Dior, Chanel, Lancome etc) you wouldn’t put a perfectly polished finger wrong with this. Chanel retails for £18 in stores at all Chanel counters.
