Chanel Sunrise Trip with Studs | Twinsie Tuesday
This is Chanel Sunrise Trip with studs for Twinsie Tuesday, the prompt for which is studs or embellishments this week.
Sunrise Trip is a gorgeous colour. It is a jelly polish in a deep purple, almost indigo colour. It is the first “Nail Gloss” that Chanel has launched, and is distinct from their “Nail Colour” range. The nail gloss colour is a gel-like formula, presumably akin to OPI Infinite Shine or Sally Hansen Miracle Gel. I can’t vouch for the wear though as I have only just put it on.
While the colour is stunning, I didn’t much like the formula as it pooled in my cuticles. It did level out nicely though, and two coats were just enough to still be able to see a jelly effect but not too much visible nail line.
The worst thing about this polish though is that the brush is just dreadful. It is more useless than one you’d find on a cheap market stall polish. I don’t know what they have done, but I am pretty sure that Chanel has changed its brush supplier. The last few Chanel polishes that I have bought – Vibrato, Fortissimo, Rouge Noir (new), Top Coat Lamé Rouge Noir and now Sunrise Trip – all have ropey brushes.
I used to love the slim Chanel brushes, but these new ones are thicker, with more bristles, and the individual bristles don’t lay very straight, making the brush flare out at the bottom. Not only is this completely inconsistent with a top notch brand such as Chanel, it makes it very difficult to paint your nails nicely!
I am very disappointed that Chanel still hasn’t sorted its brushes out, but I have (begrudgingly) been willing to overlook it recently because the colours are so nice. However, I will stop buying Chanel polishes if they can’t provide a good quality brush.
