Chnael nail polish in Paparazzi is part of the Avant-Premiere Makeup collection. It is a dusty plum-brown nail polish with very fine golden shimmer running through it. The shimmer, as is common with a lot of Chanel nail polishes, is seen only under artificial lights or under direct sunlight. It's a subtle shimmer and adds just a hint of bronze-y warmth to the polish. The formula is fabulous, easy to apply, and gives a nonstreaky finish. It lasted about 4 to 5 days on my nails with minimal chipping, which I would say is quite good considering I do a whole lot of typing every day. Scroll on for more photos.

Here's a look at how Paparazzi compares with a few of the other Chanel nail polishes that I have in my collection. I don't have an exact match for it - thank goodness for that - and I think the closest color would be Delicatesse. Paparazzi has a bit more of pink/plum tones to it and has shimmer mixed in while Delicatesse is brown with peach tones and no shimmer to it. Excuse the spelling error in the second photo (Confidential/Confidentiel). I am just too lazy to change it now :P

Looking at this photo also reminds me not to judge a book by its cover. Rose Cache (review here) looks like a blah washed out dirty pink in this photo, but it is one of my favorite nail polishes from Chanel. A lovely neutral with the
infamous Chanel shimmer that flashes beautifully in the sun. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get it to look pretty in my photos. Hmmm..someday when I get the time I will take some better photos and update that post :-|
Overall, I think Chanel nail polish Paparazzi is a perfect pick for the neutral nail polish lovers. There is an understated elegance to the color, and it might not stand out among some of Chanel's brighter, deeper colors, but do give this a try. It's the sort of color that will never go out of style.
P.S: Izzy's Perfume and Beauty Shoppe (not an affiliate link - I bought my nail polish from Chanel online) is having a 10% off on nail polish when you pick any 3 colors. And if you stay outside of California, you are exempt from sales tax.
