Chanel Nail Colour: 217 Splendeur

I've started to wear some of my Chanel polish again recently after buying a new shade (Miami Peach) and being reminded of how excellent the formulations are. The colour I'm currently sporting on my nails is, Splendeur which is a bright, summery fuchsia cream.

Application was absolutely perfect. The colour applies evenly and is completely opaque after just one coat (I applied two out of habit). The finish is also lovely, really glossy, smooth and even.


I've used a coat of Orly Bonder underneath the shade in the photos below, but no top coat. I normally use Seche Vite, but find I get a lot of shrinkage if I use it over my Chanel colours. The finish with Splenduer is incredibly glossy anyway and quick drying too, so I don't feel I need SV.

As above

Splendeur is one of my favourite spring/summer shades and one of my all time favourite Chanel shades. The vivid pink looks fabulous on tips and also makes a lovely pedicure colour too!
