I have been sleeping past 2am every night the past week trying to book trains and hotels for my Italy vacation, and spending the weekend catching up on sleep. Somewhere along the way, I met up with an overseas friend at a quaint little coffee shop that also doubles up as a floral studio, and picked up a cool little bouquet for myself. That naturally formed the backdrop for today’s feature image! Looking at it now, I would have preferred a whole plethora of Christmas ornaments, after all, doesn’t the nail polish look like tinsel? But October is too early to be breaking out the tree and baubles! So let’s make do with something green and a little rustic since it is still fall season, but looking forward, I’d like to show you Chanel Le Vernis 757 Rose Fusion from the Rouge Noir Absolument Collection for Holiday 2015.
Chanel Rose Fusion (757) Le Vernis is the latest limited edition nail polish from Chanel’s Collection Rouge Noir Absolument for Holiday 2015. I had reviewed some pieces from the makeup collection here last week, please feel free to pop over to get a better sense of the collection and how Rose Fusion fits in.
Chanel Rose Fusion is described as a luminous purple grey which does not tell us very much about this chameleon. It is a metallic duo chrome which flashes from purple to silver and bronze depending on the angle and the lighting. In the bottle it looks much more purple than on my nails.
When applied, Rose Fusion turns more silver flashing almost pewter, although the purple tint is still present. Under warm lighting, Rose Fusion turns into bronze.
What makes Rose Fusion interesting is the inclusion of various multicoloured shimmers that are very fine but still visible especially under low lighting. I was quite surprised to see these beautiful shimmers in Rose Fusion, and it is something we don’t see often in Chanel Le Vernis, and almost always in elusive limited editions. However, the brush strokes are also quite visible in this one, and no matter how carefully I apply, it is simply unavoidable.
Chanel Le Vernis 757 Rose Fusion has a lovely formula that is nicely opaque in 2 coats, and lasts for a good 3-4 days before showing signs of wear at the tips, which is as good as nail polishes go for me. It is limited edition, and I do recommend you check it out as soon as you can!
