Frisson: Chanel Le Vernis (Roses Ultimes de Chanel Makeup Collection Spring 2012)

Chanel Le Vernis Frisson is part of the Roses Ultimes de Chanel Makeup Collection which features limited edition shades of 4 nail polishes and 6 lipglosses.  Chanel Le Vernis in Frisson reminds me of a really light strawberry smoothie - milky, creamy, and pink - with very fine gold shimmer scattered throughout that gives it a beautiful golden hue.

This photo was taken in a slightly more white light, and this is the actual base colour of the nail polish (I had to tweak the photo a bit to show that!).  The golden shimmer in it, though, gives Frisson a golden/peach hue to it while still keeping it a soft pink.
It took me 4 coats to get a complete opaque finish, but you could wear it sheerer too.  The formula is nonstreaky, and I have never seen shimmer done so beautifully in a nail polish ever - I am normally firmly antishimmer, but this I love!  To me this beautiful pink nailpolish is spring in a bottle
