Chanel Lilis

It was our wedding anniversary (16 years) last Friday,and my husband bought me the three new L’Été Papillon polishes as an early present.

From the three polishes in the collection, I really thought Bel-Argus – the metallic, cobalt blue polish – would be the first of the three to make it onto my nails, but I was wrong. Instead it’s Lilis, a bright coral creme.

It went on really well – as with all Chanel polishes – and dried to a super shine.

The second coat started to bubble as it dried. I’ve never had that before with a polish (except for a while ago, before I learned that you shouldn’t shake the bottles). So, to rectify this, I added a third coat and then immediately added a fast-drying top coat. This sorted out the bubbling and left a lovely, shiny result.

Lilis is a bright coral, perhaps a coral red if I was being all web-designery and checking hex colours (#FF4040 if you’re interested!) It really is a lovely colour and suits my skin tone very well; it’s absolutely perfect for summer.  I chose the wrong day to wear it though. After a week of glorious weather in the UK, it’s back to being all dreary and overcast again.

What a lovely bright colour! I bought the other two, but passed on this – maybe I should have got it too!

I love them all. I am always drawn to blues too, so I’m glad he bought me this. I don’t think I would have chosen it otherwise.
