Just in time for Valentine's Day 2012, Chanel has released four exclusive romantic colors. Of the four, not one is a red...a little unusual. The colors are Chanel Tentation, Chanel Frisson, Chanel Attraction and Chanel Distraction.
Starting with Chanel Tentation. Tentation is a very vivid fuchsia pink metallic. It has the same look as Chanel Rouge Carat from the Winter Collection. A nice summer color, definitely.
Chanel Frisson is a very warm pale pink with lots of gold micro-glitter. This one was the sheerest and I had to use coats here. Beautiful for Spring.
Chanel Attraction is shown as a pale "Graphite" color in the promo pic above, it is no where near that. Attraction is an almost cool icy white metallic in the bottle...looks super cool. Not so cool on the nails, it's streaky frosty mess. Although, it was very saturated and opaque, only needed 2 coats for full coverage, it's a lost cause in the streakiness department.
Last up, Chanel Distraction. Distraction is a warm coral/salmon color with the signature Chanel micro shimmer. The micro-shimmer doesn't show up well on the nail and looks more creme. This one was also a two coater. Excellent for Spring and Summer.
The Chanel Valentine's Day colors, "Roses Ultimes De Chanel" can now be purchased exclusively, at www.chanel.com. Each one retails for $26.00.
Until next time....
