There is something about the perfect, soft blue that makes me just plain happy.
I blame the fascination equally on robins eggs and Tiffany’s (there are very few ladies whose hearts don’t flutter a bit more at the site of the box right?) So I was obsessed with finding a perfect spring shade of blue. I had first heard about Chanel Coco Blue when it was released as part of the Les Jeans de Chanel collection of colors (yes nail polish colors that took their influence from the colors of denim!) I barely saw it in stores, but snatched up the Coco Blue color when I saw it at Changi Airport in Singapore (duty free shopping, you rock!)
The color didn’t disappoint in real life, but the formula did. The nail polish was inconsistently opaque after two coats and I feared doing a third coat in case I got those dreaded bubbles. I got a manicure over the weekend though and learned a new technique for applying manicures (just short strokes!) so I will see if that helps the spread of the formula as well as minimizes bubbles.
It is still a great color for the warmer months though I’ll still be searching and hoping other brands make something similar!
– Overall I loved the color, but not the finish so no, I wouldn’t re-buy this
– Great blue shade!
– I wish the finish was more opaque
– $26 (or $21 after the exchange rate for me)
