Chanel Particulere

This is one of Chanels most popular shades, although I think it may be limited here in New Zealand.

I used two coats here. Very nice formula as with all Chanels.

However, it is very close to OPI Over The Taupe. Very close, only miniscule differences! I will have a comparison between the two along with Essie Mink Muffs shortly.

Chanel Les Pops Collection

I am pretty sure almost everyone fell in love at first sight with the promo pictures of these beauties. 

The Les Pops collection is now available in New Zealand and retail for $46 each. I got my lot a little early so I can't give you a release date sorry.


I wasn't really hyped about this one as I am sure I have something close to this shade. Mum fell in love with it though so luckily I was allowed to share it with you :) Two coats here, almost perfect coverage in first coat. Beautiful formula. Not as blue or deep as Splendeur incase you are wondering.


I only got Mistral and Nouvelle, but I wore this one straight away. It looks so cute in the bottle. But you do lose the glitter a little once you apply it to your nails. Mistral is a very soft, delicate, feminine shade. I like it. three coats here, it's a little more sheer than the other two.

Nouvelle Vague

Nouvelle Vague
My absolute favourite. It just looks so smooth and... frothy? lol I don't know, it reminds me of Goody Goody Gumdrop ice cream. Two coats here. The formula is honestly the best I have ever come across. Ever.

I absolutely love this collection, it's just so... cute and ice creamy. I am really glad I got them, these are limited so don't mess around if you want one or two! :)

Color Club Glitter Vixen Collection

I know these were released a little while a go, but it's new for New Zealand and perfect for the ball season arriving shortly :) It will be my little sisters first ball and she told mum that I was to do her and her friends make-up. She did not mention this to me. lol. 

Ok back to the collection! The Glitter Vixen lot are all glitters suspended in a clear base. Something I noticed too was that there is different sized glitters in the polishes, not a big find but  nice one :D

The weather was so sunny for me but then a storm decided to darken the skies, so some swatches are natural and some are using the flash. But they are still pretty true to their colourings.

EDITED: Ooops I was so excited to post these, I forgot my review part...

Magic Attraction
My absolute favourite of the bunch. Two coats here. Formula was a little bit thick but that helped greatly with the coverage of the glitter.

Sex Symbol
Two coats here. The coverage seemed to be a little sheer-er, would look great over a silver polish.

I really liked this one by itself. I don't think it needs a polish underneath. Two coats. Formula and glitter seemed to me like it was a little bit smoother, or finer.

Object Of Envy
I was acutally quite happy with this one, although I am curious as to how it would look over OPI Jade Is The New Black... Two coats here.

Sexy Siren
Two coats here. Sexy Siren looks great over Pure Energy, just really makes it that much more vibrant! Good coverage with this one.

Tru Passion
Similar feel to the gold one as in it felt smoother and finer compared to the others. 3 coats here.

Art Of Seduction
I was really pleased with this one too! Two coats here. Nice coverage.

These polishes retail here for $14.90
