I have been so excited about the CHANEL Spring Collection. A bounty of jewels that evoke the beauty of the Côte d’Azur. I talked about my excitement of this collection in my lifestyle blog here

With the weekend temperatures soaring, we got into gardening out door mode. Brilliant blue skies, glorious sunshine and blooms of flowers bursting into life. 

With the first BBQ of the season heating up. I was ready to set sail to the CHANEL Mediterranee.  

The collection has four limited edition shades, my favourites being the sea blue of the collections namesake Mediterranee and the warm earthy bronze of Terrana. 

As the sun was blazing I opted for the blue. The application was a little more opaque than I have known CHANEL’s nail varnish to be. Giving a full cover on just the first application. I did use two coats to for an even glossy finish.  

The result was gorgeously blue. The kind of shade of Aqua that makes you wish you were about to jump in the sea.  

We have a picture in our dining room of the Côte d’Azur Meditteranee and even on a chilly day it can make you think of warm sunny holidays.  

I can’t wait to try the Terrana bronze. Watch this space! It’s coming up soon. 

Tell us! What your favourite spring nail shade is so far this year?
