chanel coco blue (les jeans)

after blue rebel, i am showing another polish from chanel's  THE blue trio (les jeans collection for fashion's fight out 2011). in the spirit of a light blue wednesday, i'm wearing coco blue.

surprisingly or not, this was my first sort of baby blue polish. i never was a fan of this particular shade, it was always too girly for me, somewhere in the lines with barbie pink. also, it was the last one of the trio that i got, but i'm happy that i did.  

coco blue is a cool- toned sky blue creme, with some of the chanel's famous pearly subtle shimmer. in the bottle, the shimmer is a bit in-your-face, but it is barely visible on the nails. in my opinion, it has the function to make the formula smoother and easier to apply. the color is really vibrant under the direct light. it is one of those colors for all seasons, and i've grown to really like it.

for some reason, i was completely sure i that i read somewhere that the formula is terrible, but it is good. not amazing and brilliant, but without any issues in applications.

i used base (china glaze strong adhesion) + two layers of polish + btgntc fast dry
