Chanel Nail Polish Bel Argus 667
L'Ete Papillon de Chanel Makeup Collection Summer 2013
Chanel Le Vernis in Bel-Argus (667) is one of the three limited edition nail polish colors released as part of the L'Ete Papillon de Chanel Makeup Collection Summer 2013. This collection features bright, vibrant colors inspired by butterflies, and the nail colors are perhaps the best reflection of the theme. Bel-Argus is a vibrant, deep blue that flashes to a bright, electric blue as it catches the light. This is definitely a metallic shade and not one I would recommend if your favorite color in the world is a pastel pink. The formula is fantastic for a metallic shade like this, and while my clumsy oaf application means some brush strokes will show through, anyone with a steady hand and better skills would find it quite easy to get a flawless finish. Two coats are perfect for a smooth, opaque finish, but the polish does need a good half an hour, at least, of drying time to ensure no accidental dents later on (though it feels dry to touch sooner). Scroll on for more photos.
Chanel Bel-Argus is a bright, bold color - a vivid blue that is just a tiny bit out of my comfort zone. Oddly though, I like it. I loved it in the bottle, and I like it on my nails. This won't be the sort of color that I would wear to lunch with my parents - my mom would hate it and would never stop telling me that - and definitely not a color that would be flattering under the cold white fluorescent lighting in an office, but Bel-Argus would be an easy way to add a pop of color on a bright summer day. It's like a bright pink lipstick or the little flick of a winged liner, but so much easier since it's on my hands. Of course, my husband hates this color, second only to yellow (which he REALLY hates)!
