Chanel Nail Polish Azure - L'ete Papillon De Chanel Summer 2013 Makeup Collection - Photos, Review, NOTD

Chanel Le Vernis Azure (available here) - $27

Classic and trend-defining shades from the runways of Paris. State-of-the-art formula strengthens and moisturizes nails as it delivers long-wearing, high-shine, chip-resistant colour. Applies evenly without streaking.  All Chanel nail products are formaldehyde-free, toluene-free and DBP-free.

Chanel Azure is among the three nail colors in the newly launched L'ete Papillon De Chanel makeup collection for summer 2013.  Of all the colors, this complex blue-green nail polish best captures the vibrant spirit of the collection.  This is a bright, metallic teal that flashes a different color depending on the light - going from a metallic green-teal to a blue and a vibrant turquoise at other times.  This everchanging, complex color is what really sets Azure apart.  I found it quite impossible to photograph, and these photos are the best I could come up with.

As with my photos of the polish in the bottle, on my nails too, I could only capture a bit of the color that Azure really is.  This bright blue-green is just one dimension in this chameleon-like color!  The formula is a breeze to apply and has the perfect opaque finish at 2 coats - I added a third, and I really shouldn't have.

This lovely blue-green metallic color seems to already be quite a hit going by the reviews I have read online.  If you had to pick between this and Bel-Argus, you could easily just pick Azure since looks almost blue under some lights!  I have never been a fan of metallic finishes, and the greenish blue color seems to make the dark pigmentation around my nails much more prominent, so unfortunately, Azure isn't going to be on my list of "favorite Chanel nail polishes."  If you like metallics with duochrome finishes, definitely do give Chanel Azure a try - it's unique and truly what Chanel nail polishes are all about.  I am adding in links to some reviews on Chanel Azure by bloggers who have managed to do a better job at photos and comparisons:
