Spring 09: Chanel Django Nail Polish

Chanel Django Nail Polish

Happy New Years Day!  It's officially Janurary 1st 2009 - can you guys believe that?  And I was just getting used to writing 2008. Django is the second installment from the new spring 09 nail polishes.  Described as a soft pink with peach undertones and subtle shimmer.

We first saw Django make an appearance at Chanel's Spring 09 Fashion show last September.  This fabulous spring shade looked stunning on the runway models.  It was definitely a shade I had to see in person since I'm not so keen on light colors.

I'm impressed.  Django is the perfect shade for Spring.  Not pink, peach, or white.  Very different and perhaps a mix of the three.  The shimmer is very subtle and hardly noticeable for you creme lovers out there.

Since the formula was a tad on the thick side, you may able to get by with two coats.  All my swatches were done with three coats.  Brush strokes were slighty visible in bright sunlight - rarely noticable though.  But, I'm also pretty critical when testing out my polishes.

Dior's Porcelain is similar to Django, but not an exact dupe when paired next to each other.  

Django is available online and at Chanel counters.

Finally some Django swatches! Vendetta gets all the love, but I really adore Django for some reason.

Eralk, Isn't Django awesome?! After my first wear, I was so in love <3 <3. And, it looks great with every skin tone! Django is definitely the most unique out of the two. Have you picked this one up yet?

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.
