New In | Chanel Le Vernis 533 April, 535 May, 539 June

by Jess on Thursday, February 9th, 2012 · 21 comments

Hello! There is a cold snap here in the part of the world that I live in. Freezing temperatures of about -10° Celsius are a daily fare the past two weeks, but I’m sanguine that before I know it spring is almost here! So, I’m holding on…

Speaking of spring, I have had the chance to check out all Spring 2012 Collections a few weeks ago, but so far, I only ended up with three Chanel Nail Colours from Chanel’s Spring 2012 Collection. Why ‘only’? It’s an achievement, isn’t it? ;)


Chanel Le Vernis ~ 533 April, 535 May, 539 June


While some have stated that these are not the most original/unique nail colours to be released by Chanel, I knew I had to get them the moment I saw the first promo photos.

Whenever I look at these colours, I have to think of yummy fruit candies!

All three Nail Colours have a cream finish with no shimmer. 533 April and 535 May appear pretty much true to the color you see from the above swatch. 539 June however, looks more pastel and less orange on the nails than seen here.

I’m sorry, if these tape swatches are pretty much useless for you, but I’m still waiting for the nail wheels from ebay to come in…


Chanel Le Vernis ~ 533 April

533 April is a muted fuchsia infused red. Iespecially like this colour as it is much more wearable on a daily basis compared to a real hot red.


Chanel Le Vernis ~ 535 May

535 May is a bright creamy candy pink colour. Very cute, very playful.


Chanel Le Vernis ~ 539 June

539 June is a pastel apricot color that instantly brings spring nearer!


Yep, these were the only items I got out of the Spring 2012 Collections. But oh ohh… the shopaholic / makeupaholic in me tells I need to get the Diorskin Healthy Glow Booster Blush from Dior’s Spring 2012 Garden Party Collection. Say! Shall I indulge…?

I love all of these shades! they are gorgeous!!! :D thanks for the swatches! No I think tape swatches are perfectly adequate actually! It shows the pigmentation and how it looks out of the bottle :)

Hi Lily! Thank you so much for stopping by too! Hehe… okay, you girls have already convinced me to get the Dior blush! ^___^

I think June looks super adorable in the bottle, but to be honest, I have to get used to it a little when I had it on my nails.

I only managed to get hold of June, even though I went quite early to “snatch” Chanel’s Spring Collection! April is super sold out all over Singapore just a few days after launch. But I got the Blush, Eye Quad, Eye and Lip Pencil too! Chanel Spring is superb!

I love June and May the most :-) And another YES from me that you should get the Dior blush! The texture is superb and love the cool candy pink color which will look beautiful on your pink skin tone!
Stay warm and take care Jess
