The first one I tested was Fracas, now I'm not very good at describing beauty products, I'm no dedicated beauty blogger although I love my cosmetics and skin care as much as the next product junkie and upon first opening my thoughts were "Wow, this is only one step away from Neon" which it isn't when you put it on, but I was initially worried as I leave Neon nail colours to my three daughters and I also thought it looked "pearlescent" in the bottle, something else I am not a fan of, but again it doesn't look pearly on at all. I am also not a massive fan of pinks (I guess you are wondering why I bought it at all) but it is a lovely medium pink, bright enough to make an impact, more "warm" than a hot pink and a gorgeous shade for holidays, so all in all this gets the thumbs up and will put "Orange Fizz" and "Holiday" my favoured Chanel holiday shades, well, in the shade!
Next up I tried Accessoire which was a welcome addition to my Chanel collection as my Rouge Noir seems to have done a runner! Love this as much as I love Rouge Noir only difference is, I would say this has a tad of a browny tinge to it but is sure to become a firm favourite, I am a sucker for a vampy nail!
Finally Emprise. Again I'm not a fan of pale nudey type colours although they serve a purpose as don't show the chips as much as darker colours and are far easier to paint without the need for a steady hand and I know lots of women who adore nude colours. Described by some as a pinky shade, I'd like to blow that one right out of the water as this colour most definitely falls in the peachy nude colour category. Closest Chanel existing colour is Jade Rose.
Although a pleasing collection, that as usual, I just had to have, if you have a good stock of Chanel colours, you may not need to rush out and buy immediately as none of the colours are particularly unique but if you are taking your first steps into the brands polishes, then I can't think of three better shades to start off with as the only other shade you would need is a red and then you would have something for every outfit and occasion.
In all pictures I am using China Glaze Ridge Filler Base Coat, 2 coats of nail polish and Seche Vite Top Coat available here.
