NOTD - Chanel - Blue Satin

Hi everyone,

Sorry I havn't blogged in a while, I have been caught up in my own little world  but after a HUGE realisation today..I am BACK so expect blogs more frequently.

Today I have a nail of the day post for you and this is a special one for me.

About 2 weeks ago Dan (My other half) gave me £20 and told me to treat myself to a nail varnish from the new Chanel spring collection.  I went to have a look and after nothing shouting at me I ended up purchasing a Nail Varnish from there regular line.  My colour of choice?...Blue Satin.

As you can see from the photo it is a gorgeous navy blue with fine silver shimmer running through it.

Formulation:- Again as with ALL Chanel NOTD posts I feel I am repeating myself.  The formulation is outstanding.  Not too thick and not too thin, the perfect consistency which makes it easy to apply and a dream to use.
Colour payoff:- Colour pay off is again brilliant.  One coat does the job and coats your nails but 2 coats really leaves your nails with a proffessional finish.  The colour in certain light can look a little on the black side but with a goregeous hint of navy blue.
Colour:- The colour is again gorgeous.  A true dark navy blue with fine hints of silver shimmer running through it.
Staying power:-  I actually didn't paint my nails that much this week so got to give the Chanel nail varnishes a true testing in the staying power stakes.  It lasted around 4 days before signs of the first chip and a full 6 days before almost every nail was chipped and I really needed to take it off.
Overall:- As always another gem by Chanel.  True quality and definatly worth the £18 price tag...I couldn't ask for more and can't wait to next add to my Chanel collection, next in line on my purchase wish list...Peridot.
Thanks for reading.
