Chanel Jade & Jade Rose Le Vernis Nail Polish

The more I look at Jade and Jade Rose, the new limited edition nail polish colors from Chanel, the more I wonder why they were released now, with all the other Fall 2009 items. Yes, I know that they were inspired by the tweed fabrics and jewelery for fall/winter shown on the runway, but still- we're talking light rose and mint green, both with very delicate shimmer. They look quite springy, if you ask me.

Today I'm wearing Jade Rose, and it's a pretty, happy color. When staying indoors, the shimmer is all but invisible and the shade looks a lot warmer than in full daylight. It has an almost peach undertone, especially when you put on three coats (quite necessary, as the polish is sheer). As noted by Melanie Parker on Blogdorf Goodman, application can be tricky. I've experimented a little and found out that Jade Rose works best over an Essie glaze base coat. It kept streaks to a minimum and the results are good. So far, I only had one small chip in three days when I banged my hand on a dresser in an odd angle (don't ask).

  1. I love Chanel Nail polish. These colours are beautiful. I have only one and its black.

  2. The largest Chanel counter in Sydney was sold out of Jade last week - maybe because it's actually Spring here, it's more popular? I think that Shu Uemura's P727 (which I have) is quite similar though.

  3. They are pretty colours but I have to agree they look much more like Spring colours than autumn (fall) colours. Still very pretty though :)

  4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chanel nailpolish. Too bad I can't get my hands on the Jade or Rose ones. It was difficult getting the "Vendetta".
    I can't believe it. I live in Germany, which at the end of the day is Karl's homecountry!
    Too bad! I love the colours!



  5. I'm more into the deep colours, Vendetta, Blue Satin and their ilk, as I find Chanel's polishes are too thin and subtle to really show. and, it might seem tacky, but, when you spend that much on nail polish, you want people to notice...
