This included my nails! For months I would just do uber quick neutral mani's that could survive a few chips and last longer, which then ended up being just a bit of clear polish, then nothing at all :/ my hands, nails and cuticles had become rather embarrassing to say the least!
Then, a couple of weeks ago, something happened to bring a bit of the polish mojo back into my life... I was in a duty free store and spotted the latest Chanel limited editions. Azure really took my eye as it is pretty much my absolute favourite colour, captured in a bottle! I was mesmerised but just couldn't justify the hefty Chanel price tag.
At the end of the trip though, I saw it again and swatched it just to see if it would look as good on my nails as the bottle hinted... it was amazing and I had a little local currency left over, so decided to splurge!
I am so glad I did, as that little purchase has totally reignited my love for polish!!
It's funny, last June/July I was also in the same duty free store and bought my first Chanel - May, a subtle but pretty pink that was the start of my nail polish journey, so it is kinda cool, that another Chanel polish has put me back on that path - if only I could afford to buy more Chanel lol.
I doubt I will be able to post on this blog frequently, as life is still crazy busy, but I do aim to get back into it so I can have a little time to do something just for me :)
Here is a little swatch of this colour that captivated my attention :) (please excuse my cuticles and lack of clean up, I was just so excited to post again, I took this with my iphone as soon as it was light enough this morning ha ha).
|Chanel Azure - Shade|
The teal-green-blue colour shift is divine and it definitely looks different under different lights too. This is my favourite colour generally, but I don't normally go for colours like this on my nails. This however is an exception and I am in LOVE with it!
I found the formula of Chanel Azure fairly easy to work with, it absolutely needs two coats, it is shown here with that and a top coat.
So there you go, Chanel Azure, thank you for giving me back my polish passion and hopefully giving me my blogging mojo back too!
