Chanel nail polish Starlet (575) was among the four nail polishes released as part of the Avant-Premiere de Chanel makeup collection. The color is a dusty peach-coral with fine shimmer mixed in. The shimmer isn't one of the invisible Chanel shimmers but it's quite a subtle sheen that is mixed into the nail polish. It adds a warmth and a golden hue to the nail polish without ever making it look too glittery or shimmery. This is a perfect color for the spring/summer days, but it would look lovely any time of the year. It's a neutral but definitely not a boring one at all. Scroll on for more photos.
Among the other Chanel nail polishes that I have, Orange Fizz and Distraction are the two that come closes to Starlet. Both of them lack the more obvious shimmer/sheen of Starlet (Distraction has some shimmer, but it's the barely visible kinds) and are brighter and more summer corals/orange. I have added Fracas - much brighter pink - and Frisson - a very pale milky pink peach shimmer - but they definitely aren't anything similar to Starlet.
Starlet is the sort of classy, neutral nail polish that Chanel does so well. The pink/shimmer sheen adds a lovely hue to this peach-coral shade. It strikes a nice balance between soft, romantic shades and something with a bit more of a punch to it. This is definitely my favorite among the nail colors from the Avant-Premiere collection, apart from Provocation (REVIEW HERE) - a gorgeous vampy shade that's a repromote and released as part of the FNO collection earlier.
