So there is a new Chanel collection out RIGHT NOW, in a limited number of stores and, of course, it is itself limited edition. L’Intemporel De Chanel can been seen on the US Chanel.com website here and consists of a gorgeous eye shadow palette, styled on the classic Chanel chain bag, along with a silver polish, again reflecting the chain of the classic bag.
Much as I love the shadows, and I was seriously thinking about purchasing them, I (typically) got all grabby hands about the polish. I love a silver. And I love Chanel. It was a perfect match. Lets look at the pics!
The polish is just the perfect shade of silver, its realy stunning and so bright on the nail. Formula was excellent, it was almost a one coater. The black cap pops off and you have a stumpy black lid that you hold to apply the polish. The brush is the standard Chanel brush, thin but pliable.
What you see above is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 and topped off with a coat of Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat. Unlike the chrome polishes we have been seeing of late, the application of a top coat does not effect the finish of the polish.
I’ve worn this for three days and Ive only just chipped it. So colour me impressed!
I paid £18 for this polish and I picked it up at the Chanel counter at Selfridges Exchange Square in Manchester. It is also available at a limited number of other stores. if you are a Chanel collector, this one is a no brainer, but there are some fabulous (and cheaper) silver shades out there.
Let me know what you think in the comments.

I wouldn’t really call silver my color, but this looks great on you! I don’t think this collection is/will be available here, or maybe it is in the boutique. I like how the eyeshadow palette looks, but I wonder if I’ll use it often, and that is making me a little more sensible :p
Thanks Sunny! I love a good silver polish! The eyeshadow palette is lovely, I have a similar colour way from Clarins so I certainly don’t need it. Lovely as it is, I don’t think I could ever bring myself to use it
