Chanel 527 Nouvelle Vague

Dear Lacqueristas,

Meet Chanel´s summer 2010 collection

Before you scroll down, let me inform you that my precious nails had a little accident at work so I had to cut them all down right to the nailbed :-(
Here we go:
Nouvelle Vague is appearantly meant to be a turquoise but in my modest opinion it looks more like a baby blue. Indeed a hint of green but that is very faint. Somehow this polish is not as bright as I hoped it to be, it looks a bit dull. I think this color makes my hands look like hey fainted at least!
In the bottle you can clearly see a shimmer but once applied you really have to be in the sun and search for evidence of this. In the next picture I was able to capture some of the shimmer.

Application was a pain, totally not what I expect from Chanel. I experienced bubbeling, on several nails. I even had to redo two nails for these pictures. The formula was a tad gloopy (so not Chanel!) and it took me three coats to be streak-free.
I will review the other polishes in this collection soon!

Do you happen to have this polish? And does it look vibrant on you?

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!

I had high hopes for this polish but it isn't special at all.

It's cute but no so special, I won't get it, especially with that bad quality ^^

I'm so sorry about your nails, hope all is well! They still look fabulous, imo.

Hiya-no package yet. Customs in the states is appalling!!! They are SLOW and a huge pain in the backside. :( I will definitely give you a shout out when they arrive!

Too bad...this is actually a very pretty color!
It reminds me of China Glaze - for Aubrey. You prob. have it, right?

I bought this colour the other day. 22euro. I love it, It´s super hard wearing, and hasn´t chipped or worn off and I´m on day three. I think the colour is a kind of "Duck egg blue" with a slight hint of green. Also noticed today that lots of dresses and clothes for this summer are the same blue colour.
