Mani Monday: Chanel Paparazzi

Chanel Paparazzi Nail Polish Review Swatch

Hooray! A new Chanel nail polish to add to my collection. If you didn’t know, I actually collect Chanel nail polishes. Every time I go on a trip I buy a new Chanel polish as a souvenir. A couple weeks back I was in New Orleans for a conference and made my way to Saks Fifth Avenue. Now it did take me awhile to pick out this polish. Nothing new was grabbing my attention so I went to the big display and started going through the ones I don’t own (that is getting harder and harder….).

I finally ended up falling in love with Paparazzi which came out with the Avant-Première collection in 2013.

This plum-brown colour is very unique and reminds me of a muted marsala (you know, that colour that everyone is talking about nowadays). In the bottle you can see a fine copper shimmer but once on the nail, like a lot of Chanel polishes, it disappears. I really think that this fine shimmer gives a creme finish polish a bit of dimension very subtly.

In different lights the colour can appear more red/copper and in others more brown. Like I said, very unique.

This is a one coater. That’s right. The swatch you see here….one. single. coat. Hooray!! The formulation of this polish reminds me why I love Chanel polishes. Not too thin or too thick. Self-levels like a dream. Dries to a glossy finish (but I still top it with Seche Vite). Minimal chipping and tip wear after a couple of days. I wore this right after my trip and it lasted the whole week.

So what do you think of my latest addition? Is this colour something you would wear?
