Swatch & Review: Chanel Sahara Beige

Hi everyone!

I have a really exciting post today - I got my first Chanel lacquer! Unfortunately, my nails aren't in the best shape. I managed to irreparably break one, so I had to file them all down to micronubbins. On the bright side, this is the shortest you'll ever see my nails, so it's all uphill from here! The color I'm showing to you is Sahara Beige, which is a lovely warm-toned nude with some even lovelier shimmer particles!

I really liked how this polish turned out, I find it's nearly exactly my perfect mannequin hands polish! I also love how the shimmer is present on the nail - to me it adds a unique touch to an otherwise pretty bland color. I found that the color dried a little more pink/orange toned than in the bottle, but this isn't too much of a problem. Application was fairly good, I have two coats here but I think that is only because I don't have long nails anymore :( If I had more free edge, I think I would have needed 3 coats.

All in all, I'm pretty much in love with this polish! Do you like it as much as I do?
