Chanel Gold Fiction and Kaleidoscope Swatches
This Fall Chanel introduces three new limited edition colors: Gold Fiction - a true 18 karat gold, Kaleidoscope - a metallic pewter gray with green undertones and Fantastic - a deep wine shade. Along with these three new shades accompanied a pretty hefty price tag. Gold Fiction retailing at $30 and the others at $20. Did ya'll notice their regular nail polish even increased in price?! I know what your thinking, 30 bucks for a nail polish, that is ridiciously, and it is!
Gold Fiction is described as a true 18 karat gold shade. The application is like spreading butter on your nails except with 18 karats of pure perfection. But, for 30 bucks worth of perfection? Probably not. Everything about Gold Fiction was perfect, which is exactly what your paying for. Your not paying for the unique color, just the richness of Chanel.
The Polish Addict has some great gold comparisons and OPI Symphony in Gold looks to be right on the money. It's definitely worth taking a peek.
I literally fainted when Kaleidoscope - a pewter grey metallic with green undertones, graced my eyes. Now, this is what I'm talking about! I would certainly pay 30 bucks Kaleidoscope in a minute. This is probably one of the most unique colors Chanel has created and I'm loving it. All the photo swatches don't justify the beauty of this color - it is truely hard to describe.
Kaleidoscope has been fingers and toes for quite sometime. I've been sporting around this color for the last couple days and I can't stop drooling at it.
Fantastic is a nice creamy shade of red wine, but, I just don't see anything fantastic about it. Save your money on this shade and pick up another bottle or Kaleidoscope or save it for the Robertson Blvd Collection.
Overall, Kaleidoscope is the bread winner of the Fall nail colors. But, all being limited edition, don't hold your breath and snatch them up quickly before they sell out. Don't wait on Kaleidoscope it will go super fast. I promise you won't regret it.
Chanel hear me loud ~ please release the Robertson Blvd Collection already!

I completely agree 100%. Kaleidoscope is the winner from this collection. It's way too gorgeous for words. I wore it for 4 whole days. lol. I never ever keep polish on for that long.

While the Gold Fiction looks good on you, I tested it out this past weekend and I looked like I had "nicotine nails". Sadly the Nordy's I went to was out of Kaleidoscope...and the salesgal was not NEARLY as informed on Chanel product as I am and tried to tell me Lotus Rouge was "new"....uh I dont think so lady!

Courtney, Thanks! lol, I'm sure it didn't look that bad. :) It's really frustrating dealing with the MA's esp Chanel's. They never seem to be informed. You def have to pick up kaleidoscope, she's so pretty.
