Pedi of the Day: Chanel LA Sunrise

Chanel LA Sunrise from Robertson Blvd Collection

Today's pedi of the day is LA Sunrise - a soft yellow color with subtle silver shimmer.  The pale lemon shade is absolutely gorgeous and unlike any yellow in my collection.  However, the application was extremely streaky and difficult to accomplish a polished manicured look.  You may need some crazy pills dealing with yellow polishes because they share one thing in common - the formula is a nightmare!  But, don't fret there's hope - call your manicurist!

Rescue Beauty Lounge and China Glaze are two brands of yellow that applies perfectly for me.  Check out some yellow comparisons below. 

Yellow Nail Polish Comparisons

LA Sunrise is more toned down compared to my other yellow polishes which, makes her unique.  Essie's shorty pants and Zoya's Creamy are much brighter than Chanel's but, can pass as dupes within themselves.  Shorty Pants applies thicker than Creamy but, the finished results are pretty much the same.

UPDATE: I love love love this color, it's so fab ya'll!

Something you can do to help with your application is not apply so much pressure when you polish. flatten the brush when you wipe off one side before you begin application. you have to let the polish just flow off the brush, also try doing 3 thin coats, I find that with most chanel colors they look better with 3 thin coats than 2 thick coats. its more even and lasts longer, in this manicurist's opinion.

Thanks so much for this tip christy - I'll def have to try this. :) I do find using thin coats are so much easier with chanel's polish.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
