After a very boldly colored collection of 4 nail polishes for Summer 2015, Chanel has also prepared a separate set of 4 nude Le Vernis for its Les Beiges Collection. The release consists of 1 pale pink and 3 varying shades of beige. I have 655 Beige Rose and 661 Precious Beige, and would like to show them to you today.
Chanel Le Vernis 655 Beige Rose is a pale milky ballet pink that has a cream finish. As is expected with a shade this light, it takes a generous 2 coats to be completely opaque. However, it is nicely self-leveling, and does not leave streaks once it is dried.
I was initially worried that Beige Rose would be too pale against my skin tone as some such pinks turn white-ish or make my fingers look washed out. So I was actually very pleasantly surprised to find how beautiful it looks when applied. This is possibly the lightest shade of pink that I can wear nicely, and it looks effortlessly elegant. What I loved was that it covered my nail perfectly without any patchy sheerness.
Chanel Le Vernis 661 Precious Beige is a light-medium beige with Chanel’s signature hidden shimmer. The shimmer is usually mostly invisible, but given the lightness of this color, it is actually quite visible under direct sunlight, which makes Precious Beige so much more delectable.
Precious Beige is a little sheerer than Beige Rose, and took me 3 coats to achieve full opacity. And it definitely requires a clear gel coat to look good. However, I’m actually very much in love with the end result, as it looks incredibly chic, very much my-nails-but-better.
Both Precious Beige and Beige Rose are limited edition, and are part of the Les Beiges de Chanel collection for Summer 2015. They may not be particularly unique colors, but certainly must-haves for those who are looking for effortless chic nude nails.
