Chanel Nail Colour in Fracas - Photos, Review, Swatches

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails, sugar and spice and everything nice; an enchanted wonderland where the residents include tiny dragons who float away in iridescent bubbles, majestic unicorns prancing down rainbows, peculiarly fit cacti holding foot races, and jolly walruses playing the harp.

I'm sure this isn't what they were going for, but it's what I think of when I consider the most recent Chanel offerings! 8D To be clear, Chanel historically was and still is a shining monolith of elegance and sophistication; but I'm loving the soft, dreamy turn they've taken with the spring collection - very fun, happy, and timelessly classic.

Today I have Chanel Nail Colour in 571 Fracas, a gorgeous rose pink with very fine shimmer. I am finicky when it comes to pink lacquers, but this one was too stunning to cast aside -

Too many photos, I know. I couldn't help myself! Worth mentioning is that at the time of the photos, my manicure was six days old; Chanel lacquers wear really well on me, with Gelous as a base and Seche as a top coat. I removed the polish after seven days and at that time there was still no significant wear and tear. Overall, superb formula and lovely, lovely shade.

Fracas is available on the Chanel website for $27.

As always, thanks for reading/commenting/following! :)
