Nail of the Day – Chanel Kaleidescope

By Get Lippie

This shimmering metallic taupe/pewter was a limited edition from Chanel in 2008, the above pic shows two coats over a Seche base and with a Seche Vite top coat. Application is smooth with no streaking, but as it’s a metallic you do tend to get visible brush marks.

As for the colour – I’m not sure I like it, there were lots of raves about it at the time, but I think it’s actually a really difficult colour to wear as it highlights any pink you might have whatsoever in your fingers, and
makes it look like you have a nasty case of dishpan hands. At least, that’s how I feel about it. This is only the second time I’ve tried it, and it’s doubtful there will be a third.

What do you think?
