Beige by Chanel

Chanel Le Vernis Beige (565) available exclusively online at the Chanel website - $26

Spotted first on Kristen Stewart and January Jones at the Met Gala, Chanel's much hyped nail polish that was supposed to be a "secret" got mostly lukewarm reactions much before it's release on May 16, 2012.  A beige, even if it's from Chanel, does lower expectations a lot.  I did order it, though, soon as it became available online, and here are the photos (and my review).

Chanel Le Vernis Beige is opaque, creamy, and the color reminds me of really milky coffee.  There is a very fine pink shimmer mixed into the formula, but other than catching flashes of it in the bottle, I really cannot catch it on my nails.  The color goes on quite opaque with 2 coats and if you are good at application, you could get away with just 1 coat imo.  The formula is fabulous, the best among the few Chanels that I have tried.  It dries pretty fast, goes on nonstreaky, and even for someone as clumsy as I am, it does apply quite beautifully.

After seeing the Met Gala pics, I was expecting a pale beige nail polish with an orange cast to it.  Chanel Beige is definitely not orange, and at least to me, its not another boring beige.  I tried a lot of bright colors this year, and while splashes of color definitely brighten my mood, once the trend passes, it's the simple classy colors like this that I tend to use the most.  If you are looking for something sophisticated and classy, do give this a try - you won't be disappointed, I promise!
