Chanel – June

Here is a slightly older Chanel for you today.  I managed to get this for a few ££ on eBay, so I didn’t feel too bad with the purchase.  This is part of the Spring 2012 collection, Harmonie De Printemps, along with April (which I also scored on eBay for a few quid and May, not yet purchased but stalked!)

June is an odd duck of a colour, yes you heard me, an odd duck.  Its not orange, but its not peach, and its a creme through and through.  But I LOVE the colour.  I waited ages on this collection, umming and ahhing about purchasing.  As I have done with the rest of the Les Roses Ultimes de Chanel Collection (I have Attraction as you may recall) and the Holiday 2012 Collection (I have Holiday).  Anyway, it worked out well as I got these for less that half of the UK retail price on eBay.  Call it luck as I am PARANOID about fakes on eBay.  Paranoid.

So, here we go.  This is June.

I have lots of reasons to love June.  It is the month my son was born it.  It was the month my now husband and I got together in.  And its the month before my birthday in July.

But, yes, here it comes.  June is a hot mess of a nail polish.  It is streaky.  It is willful.  And it is a bugger to work with.  Seriously.  I know how to apply polish and I am pretty patient when it comes to getting a good even coat.  But June would not cooperate with me at all.  Nope.  No she didn’t.  She was streaky.  She was uneven.  She wouldn’t play ball with three coats.  Oh no.

This pains me, it really pains me, but this is a PITA polish.  I love the colour, really love it, but the formula I can live without.  I used Seche Retain as my base with a top coat of Hong Kong Girl.

What do you think?  Worth another chance?
