Sneak Peek: Chanel Summer 09 Nail Polishes
This summer, Chanel introduces two new warm tones to the Cote D'Azure collection. A resort destination collection featuring, Golden Sands - a shimmery brown metallic and Orange Fizz - a cool orange coral creme.
Today I had the oppurtunity to play around with Chanel's new summer 09 collection and overall, I'm a little bit disappointed. I found the eye shadow colors to be dark and way too orangey for my liking, even for my warmed toned skin. And the nail colors - were safe and "typical" summer shades.
As soon as I laid eyes on Orange Fizz in person, I knew it was a close dupe to L.A. Sunset. Orange Fizz is more dull and has pink undertones compared to L.A. Sunset. And honestly, L.A. Sunset is much prettier & brighter in my opinion. Bottom line - if you have L.A Sunset, I'd pass on this one.
On a side note, Orange Fizz is selling like hotcakes at most of the Chanel counters.
Yep, Golden Sands is a metallic. Man, was I bummed or what. Me and metallics just don't get along and the same goes for this one. Although, the application was a tad better than Antilope - it's still a metallic. Described as a darker copper sand compared to Antilope's white sand color.
Here's a pedicure picture of L.A Sunset from last year. In a couple days, I'll be posting more pics of Orange Fizz in this blog post.
To break it down, Orange Fizz is pretty - but not unqiue. There are several alternatives (some of mine shown above) that are just as good.

I completely agree with you Steph. This is the first time I was not even tempted to buy a Chanel polish. I bought the bronzing loose powder from the resort collection, it's pretty :)

What's the name of the L.A. Girl Flare nail polish?

I have the one on the far left, the wet and wild. And I love it on my toes. I saw the Orange Fizz in a magazine and loved it...and immediately thought, "Hmmm...too close to my $3 nail polish to justify spending $22 on a similiar color" I do love me a pink coral though for summer. I'm really liking that LA Sunset.

Hi Marlen, It's called Coral:) Hi Emily, I really love LA Sunset verses Orange Fizz. Their definitely close and not worth spending the extra cash if you don't have it :)

Do you know how Orange Fizz compares to Chanel Orange Blossom?
