Review and Swatches : Chanel Spring 2012 Collection

First things first *drum roll please* this is my 100th blog!!!
Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhh! I actually can't believe it. So obviously, I would like to thank each and every single person who has read my blog, and who subscribes, and comments and just thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

I love doing this, and you guys inspire me so much :)

Anyway, to the blog!

Those of you who follow me on Twitter, will know how giddy I've been about these colours.....

The Spring collection from Chanel is called 'Harmonie De Printemps', or for those of us challenged in speaking French, 'Harmony of Spring'. (Check out the full collection here). I think it's just such a beautiful collection, and one of the best yet from Chanel.

When I saw the colours in person I just couldn't contain myself, and I bought all three! Whoops! I'll just shut up here and show you  - 

Colours from Left to Right - April, May, June



April is a pink/red creme. A really fresh take on a classic red for spring.Lovely two coat formula.



May is a super sweet candy pink creme. This colour just makes me happy! Good at lifting the spirits when you feel like the sun will never come out again!!!!! More sheer than April, three coats.



June is, like, I don't even know how to explain this creme colour! So pretty, really fresh, pastel apricot?! This one settled a little patchy on my nails, but I was so excited about using it I did rush this mani!!!! Three coats.

June is a limited edition, so grab yours NOW!!!!

So, Chanel Spring 2012 is a win.

Now to review........I know I've used Chanel before (here), but I didn't really review the brand, so here goes :) 

 As a general rule, I love Chanel as a beauty brand! I love how the products are packaged, I love the luxury that is attatched to the name 'Chanel'. And most importantly I LOVE the products. I feel so glamorous when I use them. 

I have not yet been disappointed by a Chanel polish, or any other product for that matter. I would recommend them to absolutely anyone.

Now, they cost £17.50. Which, I think, is pretty fair in comparison to other luxury brands on the market. But the way the polishes make you feel when you use can't put a price on that :)

Hope you enjoy!

See you next time,
