Chanel Morning Rose Summer 2011 "Les Fleurs d'été"

This summer Chanel will release it's new cosmetic collection "Les Fleurs d'été" which will include 3 nail polishes : Mimosa, Morning Rose and Beige Pétale.
I have already reviewed Mimosa and Marionne reviewed Morning Rose for us but since I've also managed to grab a bottle of Morning Rose, I decided to review it too, I don't think anyone will complain about more pictures...



Chanel Morning rose is a summery coral pink shimmer packed with gold flecks. I decided to compare it to 2 other Chanel nail polishes, Mistral and Miami Peach because if they had a baby, it'd definitely be Morning Rose! Same formula as Mistral, same shimmer as Miami Peach and a base color somewhere between those two.
In terms of opacity, it required 2 to 3 coats to eliminate VNL (Visible Nail Line) which is exactly like Mistral, Miami Peach on the other hand is a bit more sheer and the third coat is a must to achieve full coverage.

Having swatched all three nail polishes on the same hand, I can say without a doubt that my favorite is Morning Rose, the tint matches my skin tone perfectly with just the slightest coral hint, the right opacity and intensity (darker than Mistral)... And please don't get me started on those sublime gold flecks...
In other words, in my opinion, the perfect summer pink : warm, high shine, squishy look,...

  2. Wow, this is the first Chanel shade that I've loved in a long time. It's such a warm, slightly peach pink & the shimmer is beautiful.

    Great swatches as usual! I love the way you line up your nails above the polish. Think I'd have to break my fingers to get the same effect xDD
