Welcome to the first #ManiMonday post of 2018!! I finally soaked off my gel manicure, and am able to properly swatch a couple of nail polishes from the Chanel Neapolis Collection. There are 4 shades to choose from, each one inspired by the colors of Napoli. There is a sweet pastel pink to tease the spring, a classic red, and a couple of Le Vernis that are more exotic and unexpected. As you can probably guess, I went for the latter.
Chanel Le Vernis 590 Verde Pastello is an interesting medium teal that pulls more green under sunlight, yet appears more blue under indoor lighting. It has a nice creamy finish, and is nicely opaque in 2 light coats.
Chanel Le Vernis 592 Giallo Napoli is a bright, sunny yellow that is nicely neutral-toned without being too warm. It tended to streak somewhat, but evens out easily in 2 generous coats.
I had a bit of fun with these two, and created a spot of nail art. In case you are wondering, I first laid down 2 coats of Verde Pastello, then I taped out an arbitrary design before filling in with Giallo Napoli. To finish, I dabbed on a bit of clear glitter before sealing everything with a coat of gloss.
And this concludes my blog coverage on the Chanel Neapolis Collection. Do pop over here to start reading about the rest of the collection if you hadn’t seen them already. Have a wonderful week ahead!
