Chanel Vernis in “June”

chanel vernis juneChanel’s ‘June’ nail polish from the Spring 2012 collection is absolutely gorgeous – I’m obsessed with this creamy apricot shade! Last year I bought a cardigan and a top in exactly this colour, so I can’t wait until it’s warm enough that I can wear them again. And be all sad and matchy-matchy.

Here I am hand-posing on a sleeping Mr Bear. My nails are very similar in colour to his paw-pads! This photo was taken after two quick coats – it’s a very nice finish. Not at all shimmery but beautifully bright – it’s slightly paler than it looks in the top image.  It’s one of those polishes that I never want to run out of – I may have to do some of my infamous ‘stocking up’.

    Haven’t you ever had any chipping problems after a day of wear with Chanel nail polishes?. I am drooling over this shade, too, and I tested it out for a week on my thumb nail, used two coats and wasn’t opaque enough… Worst is that it lasted whole for about two days only. After that, I started having chipping problems. Have you had the same issues?

      @Romina not really, but I usually wear a base coat if I’m going to be keeping it on for a while and then no probs whatsoever! Did you use a base coat? xx

        Actually, no, ’cause I’ve never had such severe chipping problems with any other shades before… Seems like several Chanel polishes have this issue, but not other brands I’ve tried.

        Have you worn the YSL duo which features the bright apricot and the pink shades together?. I makes such a lovely french manucure! :)
