NOTD Chanel Morning Rose (557) Nail Polish - Summer 2011 'Les Fleurs D'été' Collection!

This is a polish that I almost never had, since it is part of their Les Fleurs D'été De Chanel, (limited edition) summer 2011 collection, and Limited Edition Chanel polishes almost always sell out. I think it was released around the time I was going on holiday and so I completely forgot to go and buy it in store, and when I tried to buy it at the airport, they said they still didn’t have it in stock yet. Anyway, I digress, the main thing is I managed to get my hands on it; although I’m not sure if you can still pick it up anywhere – maybe if you’re lucky?!
The colour is a pretty rose pink, kind of dusky and muted and all very lovely with gorgeous gold glass flecks running through it – although I’d say that these were more apparent in the bottle than they are on the nail, they’re not completely invisible on the nail, though.

It is a fairly sheer polish but it applied brilliantly, dried quickly between coats and I managed to get a decent result after 3 coats, although I did an extra one just because the camera can always seem to find fault with things, even when to the naked eye, it looks fine.

I don’t know if it’s my camera, my use of the camera or the colour of the polish but I did find this fairly hard to photograph accurately. I think I got there in the end, though, so I’m posting many pictures taken in different lights – just in case!

So far the polish has worn very well, I’m on day 4 and it’s all still looking rather good – can’t fault that! In fact I'm almost wishing it would chip as I have a lot of nail polish still to swatch and I'm very reluctant to remove the polish whilst it's still looking so damn good!

My advice if you can find this polish is to grab it as it’s a polish that is definitely worth owning.
