Unexpected Nail of the Day – Chanel Particuliere

By Get Lippie

Don’t you just love synchronicity?  I was just thinking this lunchtime that my polish needed changing, and was musing about what colour to do them next, when I noticed that the Chanel counter at my local Boots had the spring range in, and they had Particuliere!  I’ve been lemming this colour for ages, but instead of trying to assuage my NEED with similar colours, I told myself I’d be good and wait …

It’s a taupe shade – somewhat less grey than I was expecting, and it shades almost to a milky chocolate colour in artificial light, but I love it.  I don’t own anything quite like it already, and I can see I’m going to be staring at my nails all day tomorrow …



Pictures show two coats with a Seche top-coat, application is fine, a little sheer on the first coat, but it builds up nicely on a second.

Apologies for the appalling lack of cleanup in these pics, but I wanted to show you the swatches as soon as I possibly could … I like it an alwful lot more than the last Chanel special edition I bought you, which was Kaleidoscope, and I hated it.  Normally I avoid browns – I’m scared of them – but this is one I think works quite well with my skintone.

Will you be buying?
