Chanel Lotus Rouge
Hello my lovely readers, older and new ones! :)
I 'm back from my little blogging break, (after the end of the exam season, I just felt the need to relax and do nothing) and have lots of ideas for upcoming posts, so stay tuned!
When I did my "8 most worn" post, I had a request to show what one of my favourite nail polishes looks like on my nails.
The nail polish was none other than Chanel Lotus Rouge and it happens to be my most favourite red nail polish, ever! It's an older release, from their Fall '07 makeup collection, but might still be available (it surely seems so on the Chanel website).
I generally suck at describing nail polish formulas, but I 'd say this is a slightly sheer creme, that requires 2 to 3 coats for an even, opaque finish. 2 coats are usually enough for me, but depending on the application, there may still be some uneveness, so another coat would be required for the perfect finish.
It may be a hassle, but the colour speaks for itself: Chanel describes it as a pink plum, however I 'd say that it's a deep raspberry colour, that's neither too orange or too blue, although it's definitely more to the blue side of the red spectrum.
It isn't a dark red, but it's definitely intense, and it balances nicely between chic and slightly vampy!
Hope this was a helpful post! :)
Do let me know, which is your favourite red nail polish of all time?
I 'd love to read your suggestions!
