Nails, Nails and Nails

As you probably have heard/seen Chanel has brought out a new nail varnish collection - Les Khakis de Chanel.


If I’m honest Khaki Brun and Khaki Rose are very similar to Particuliere.

Don’t you think?  
However, the third one, the Khaki Vert is a gorgeous colour *in the bottle* and very different to the millions of nail varnishes I own :) Yes you read it right it looks gorgeous in the bottle but on the nail it is a bit disappointing as the colour pay off is not as strong as expected. Also it is a very light khaki. I expected it to be darker. I'm sure opinions will differ on this but when I tried it at the counter I was quite disappointed. 

So I set myself a goal :) - TO FIND A KHAKI GREEN NAIL VARNISH. And after some research I found Eyeko’s Military green nail varnish :)

So I ordered it straight away and it was delivered today. I’m seriously impressed with the nail varnish. The colour pay off is superb even after one layer. (Sorry for bad quality. Photo was taken via Blackberry)

 I would highly recommend it if you are after a khaki nail varnish that has a great colour pay off. And for £3.50 it is a bargain :) when compared to £19 for the Chanel one.

I would love to hear your thoughts :)

J'adore le kaki que tu portes car j'aimerais vraiment obtenir cette couleur, dommage que je ne puisse pas le toruver en France, surtout à ce prix là, et si en plus il est mieux que le Chanel.
Et il te vas vraiment très bien, j'aime beaucoup

Je viens d'aller sur le site, et ils livrent en France, je vais prendre le même vernis que toi, mais est ce que je peux vraiment leur faire confiance ? et au bout de combien de temps, tu reçois la commande ?
J'attends ta réponse pour pouvoir passer ma commande.

Traduction ;
I just go on the site, and they engaged in France, I am going to take the same finish as you, but is that I can really be trusted? and for how long, you receive the order?
I await your response before placing my order.

Danke für die Glückwünsche :)
Und auch das Ringbild,ich find den sehr schön. Hat etwas verspieltes,süßes und ist nicht so brutal wie der H&M Ring.
Bei den Chanel Lacken halte ich mich ganz raus :D ich hab keine Lust mich in einen zu verlieben und dann is er eh ausverkauft ;) aber das navy grün ist super! Habe schon etwas rumgeschaut und nix gefunden,vll. bestelle ich mal bei eyeko...
Liebe Grüße!

Looks great!
I have the Particuliere and love that color. I think the new ones are looking great but I think I wouldn't buy any of them.


Jules said...

Danke schön!
Wow, die Lacke sind echt cool!
Hätte auch mal gerne einen von Chanel.
Aber ich finde sie dann meist doch etwas teuer...
Liebe Grüße und schon einmal ein schönes Wochenende!
