CHANEL Camelia is one of the new long lasting formulas from Chanel.  This is a gel like formula, much thicker than before and dries down to a gel like manicure.  This color Camelia is stunningly beautiful.  It seems to have a light, or a brightness all its own, that is hard to describe.

Cameli is one of my favorite shades, a blue based pink leaning more to red.  In some lights the pink is obvious and yet in other lights it can be almost orange, not my favorite.  In fact, the opposite of my favorite but somehow this has become a favorite nail polish worthy of my Top 5 List, just like that.  SNAP!

  

Tip wear appeared on day 3, so I am not sure about CHANEL’s claim of long lasting, but I forgive the wear, this color is worth it.  

Application was a bit goopy and will take some getting used to.  I used OPI NAIL Envy as a base coat.  (Since we have last met my nails have stopped growing.  My daughter did some research and, along with my ex-husband, came to the conclusion that the medicine I have to take will slow my nail growth, also my hair doesn’t grow as fast as before.  So I will always have OPI Nail Envy on as a base coat.)  I did not use a top coat.  I wanted to see how the polish behaved on its own, so to speak.  Next time I will probably use my favorite fast dry top coat Seche Vite.  The finish was very much like a gel manicure so you can imagine how surprised I was at the ease of the removal.  No big deal at all.  I used straight acetone, like always.  

Final Thoughts:  This new formula from CHANEL won’t be for everyone but it is worth trying.  So far they offer 14 colors.  Yes 14 colors, period.  The former LE vernis colors from CHANEL have disappeared, at least I haven’t seen them anywhere except the usual Ebay, or Amazon sites.  You can purchase Camelia here: Nordstrom’s

If you like the look of matching nails with your lipstick, the  CHANEL customer service rep told me that even though they have discontinued the Rouge Coco lipstick in Camelia, this should match closely:  Nordstrom’s Chanel lipstick in Dmitri, $37. 

Let me know what you think of CHANEL’s new formula.  

And remember Keep Calm and Paint Your Nails!

CHANEL LE VERNIS 657 Azure. My darling son, Drew, bought this for me for my birthday. I must confess this was a polish I wasn’t sure I would like, but I do. I have roughly 70 blue nail polishes as those are my favorite, next to pink. I was convinced Azure a would be easily duped, but I will admit I was wrong about that.

CHANEL Azure is a blue duo-chrome that changes from one blue to another, it has a definite shimmer that does transfer beautifully to the nail. The color you see in the bottle is the color you get on your nails. The formula was great, smooth easy to apply. No fussiness here, I did apply 2 rather thin coats and I used a quick dry top coat. I have had this on for 1 full day plus, and not a trace of tip wear is showing. I give this polish 5/5 stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
CHANEL Azure deserves the 5/5 rating. I’m sure at some point in the future this will be duped, and of course I will let you know when that happens. These are some of the blues I have that I thought might be close to Azure:

Azure is on each end of the wheel. The closest “dupe” to Azure would be the Revlon Chroma Chameleon in Aquamarine, 5th from the left, but it is in no way a dupe for Azure. It is just the closest I could come to Azure. Again, I have no dupes for Azure, even though I have a sh*t ton of blue nail polishes.

CHANEL LE VERNIS Azure is a gorgeous polish and I am so thankful to my son for buying it for me. It seems to have a light that comes from within. It is hard to explain but I think this is one CHANEL polish worth the $27 price tag. You can buy Azure at Nordstrom or on the CHANEL website.

If you pick it up, let me know what you think of it!
