Chanel vintage trio

Dear Lacqueristas,

Today I'll show you a vintage Chanel trio. I had never heard of these before, my friend gave them to me.. for free!

Tango, Samba and Salsa

Salsa. A Pink/copper duo chrome. The pink is most evident but when your nails are quite rounded, you will see the copper peek through at the edges of the nail. This color is just fine, not too spectecular.

Salsa, akward finger positions to show the duo chrome

Tango. A peachy pink, just right up my alley. I love colors like this since one of my favorite make up artists educated me about just how flattering peachy/pinkish colors are for skins like mine (light, cool skin)
Tango has a fair amount of golden shimmer in it's formula, but that's not visible on the nail once applied.

Samba. This polish is just plain ugly on me. A gold/copper/yellow/mustard duo chrome. Extemely unflattering. In fact, this must be the single most unflattering shade I own. Probably better suiting a warm/deep colored person.

I had trouble capturing the yellow-ness of this polish. Believe me when I tell you it is... yellow and bling in a baaaad way. Like Paul Wall's grill after eating a hotdog with too much mustard.

In real life, I love salsa (the music)  uueeeeppaaaa  Hector Lavoe, Tito Nieves, Celia Cruz, ... My MP3 is full of it, I don't think I have one english song on it. The only music I listen to more, is bachata (El Mayimbe, Joe Veras, Zacarias Ferreira, Luis Miguel del Amargue) 
Back in the days I used to dance a lot as well. So I was pretty exited about the Chanel latin dance trio.

Conclusion: I'm very thankfull to receive such vintage polishes. I love Tango, I like Salsa, but Samba isn't for me. Up for swap? Feel free to contact me if interested!

Question for you: Do have any info when this trio came out,what collection etc?

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!

Duo-chrome, first one is my favourite.
I like it, but don't LOVE it.
It's like the color of the beach >o<

Gold looks aight. Maybe worser in person? xD

I agree, I love them all. I guess it really depends on the tone of your skin... some golds look good, some coppers don't on me /shrug/

Salsa is really interesting shade!
I had never heard about it until now.
Is it very old?

I don't drop a comment, however after reading through a few of the responses here "Chanel vintage trio". I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks appear like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I'd
like to follow you. Would you list of the complete urls of all your social networking sites
like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Hi! This might be a bit late, but I got this nail polish (Samba) from my mom a couple of days ago (she was about to throw it away). Do you have any more info about this polish? What collection is it from? What year? Would really appreciate some answers. Thanks!
