Oh. My gosh. I can hardly contain my excitement about this post because, for one, this is
probably one of the most amazing package s I’ve ever received, and, two, have you seen these colours? I was recently sent the most amazing shades from a brand I never, ever thought even knew I existed. *cue happy dance*
I’ve always been such a fan of CHANEL. I mean, it’s CHANEL! (And I know you guys know what I mean.) I can’t put it into words well, but I’ve always been in awe of Gabrielle Chanel’s story and this history she created with her fashion house. In other words, it’s hard not to fangirl a little over one of my all-time favourites. (It’s basically my life goal to own a Classic Flap (medium, caviar leather, gold hardware if anyone was wondering)).
Now, as much as I love CHANEL, there’s no way in hell I could afford anything from the brand–except their beauty products. The first thing I ever purchased from them was a lipstick. I still have it to this day, even thought it’s, like, at least five years old (if not more). I remember going to the counter and feeling so excited that I was buying something from CHANEL. I walked away with my little lipstick in my little CHANEL bag and couldn’t have been happier.
My next CHANEL purchase was their LE VERNIS Longwear Nail Colour. I saw the colour Peridot and fell in love. Soon after, I bought the shade Black Pearl. I’ve only worn each shade a handful of times–not because I don’t love them, but because they’re CHANEL and I literally want them to stay perfect forever. Know what I mean?
Honestly, there’s just something about CHANEL. From the ultra-luxe packaging to the exquisite colours, I nearly died when I found out I was going to be getting this package. Sure, it’s just nail polish… but it’s not just any nail polish. It’s so weird to say, but there’s something different about applying a CHANEL polish, or opening up your drawer and seeing those interlocking Cs. Nothing quite beats it.
The shades swatched above are available now at all CHANEL beauty counters and retails for $32 CND. For your info, they applied amazingly and I can’t stop swooning over the limited edition colour LÉGÈRETÉ. It’s what dreams are made of.
