NAILS | *New* Longwear Nail Colour Chanel #508 Shantung Swatch #ManiMonday

Oh dear God. My first Chanel nail lacquer is on my fingernails and all I want to do is hold and angle my hand in a way that shows off this stunning shade. I was stuck in traffic yesterday and I am pretty sure the car next to me knows all about #508 Shantung ($32.00 CDN) as I strategically held the steering wheel for maximum nail viewing.

For this Spring and Summer season, Chanel has launched 16 new Le Vernis shades that are longwearing, 5-free and include ceramides for added nail strength. As an avid collector of nail polish, I always start with classic shades when I first dive into a brand and when I think of Chanel, I immediately gravitate to what they are best known for - iconic and classic shades like red.

Shantung is a deep, jelly apple red that I am only wearing one coat of on my right hand because it was opaque in one coat! In these photos, I am wearing two coats for consistency plus top coat. The polish itself is incredibly shiny and makes my nails appear resilient.

The only gripe I have is with the brush as it was slightly "fluffy" so my edges were not as crisp as they could have been and more clean-up with a fine brush was required.
