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.
- Colour: three coats of Chanel Lilis
- Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip
