The flurry of posts featuring items from Chanel's Summer 2011 Collection Les Fleurs D'ete De Chanel left me heart sick inside because the one item I did not originally pick up was the Le Vernis Nail Colour in Morning Rose. I'll admit I'm one guilty of falling for hype and so I naturally snatched up Mimosa as quickly as possible, and for me that has quickly become one of my favorites. However, with all the love being cast for Morning Rose, I also placed an impulsive order on Chanel's website, as it was out of stock at all my local counters, figuring $7.95 in shipping costs was a small price to pay to mend my yearning heart! I placed my order on a Monday night, and luckily it was in my hands by Thursday afternoon!
Morning Rose, as all of you probably have seen by now is a delicate, warm rosy pink with golden microshimmers. This particular formula is the ultimate in quality. I was able to apply the polish evenly in one coat, and easily achieve opaque color in two. The color is truly a universal one, as previous swatches I have seen on lighter skin tones look beautiful and yet it still wonderfully complements my darker skin.
During the week when the bright and vivid yellow of Mimosa is a little loud for those bearing speculums, I'll be sporting Morning Rose. It is the perfect fool proof pink, ideal for those who are challenged in the art of self manicures, and worth every penny. Available at chanel.com $25.00
