Chanel Jade Collection: Swatches, Review
|Product: Chanel Jade Collection, LE Vernis Nail Colour 0.4 oz|
|Buy it: Chanel, Boutiques|
The time is here Ladies and Gents! Ever since the debut of Jade at Chanel's Fall 09' Fashion Runway Show, I couldn't wait to get my grubby little hands on this gorgeous minty green shade.
In this new collection, we have two limited edition shades from Chanel, Jade and Jade Rose. Both shades are lightly sprinkled with a dose of shimmer. I'm talking very subtle, almost non existent shimmer. My application required three full coats to achieve bottle color.
Let's move on to the swatches!
This year, mint green hit the scene bigger than ever and Jade fits the bill perfectly. A gorgeous mint green with a dash of faint shimmer that makes this different from most greens I own.
Jade Rose is a soft pink beige with extremely subtle pink shimmer. With my skin tone, Jade Rose turned out very "neutral-ish" on me. It's a cross between Essie's Eternal Optimist and Not Just a Pretty Face minus the shimmer, which isn't very noticeable anyways.
And for the polka dot lover in all of us!
All in All, the superstar in this collection is clearly the beautiful Jade. Although I'd hope the shimmer would be more visible, I'm happy with the overall color.
The Jade collection is only available online at Chanel or Chanel Boutiques and retails for $25/ea.

I love that green! But when I added it to my cart with shipping and handling, oh that price! I just couldn't do it. I wish companies like Chanel would offer a bottle half that size for half the price. They'd probably sell like crazy!

As always, gorgeous swatches! I love these colors. But like some of the others, I don\'t love the price. And there are other wants that I have before these. Perhaps I might go for Jade, but I don\'t know. They do look gorgeous though!

I love these colors, but unfortunately I like the price tag quite a bit less :(

I love Jade but I just can't see paying the price. I hope there's a dupe somewhere. Looks gorgeous on you Steph. The rose is also lovely but doesn't make me crazy. I always love your dotty manicures.

Is the jade rose a sheer pink?
