Chanel Le Vernis in Azure

As we all know I am a nail polish addict. I love trying the latest nail colors and cool textures that come out each season.My love for blue and green polishes started in 2009 with the release of Essie Mint Candy Apple (blog post to come soon).While I am not the biggest fan of the ever so difficult to remove glitter polish, I do love some striking duo-chrome action on the nails.

Chanel recently released Chanel L’Ete Papillon de Chanel Collection for Summer 2013. While the entire collection had me wishing I didn’t spend all my money on excessive amounts of iced coffee, there was one item I knew I must add to my already large nail polish collection-Chanel Le Vernis in Azure.

This swoon-worthy nail lacquer from Chanel is unlike any polish I have seen before. It is described as a metallic blue-green, but that description does not do it justice. It changes drastically depending on the lighting, revealing a truly chameleon color. It changes from a shimmery green to a true turquoise shade. The duo-chrome effect of this nail polish has me mesmerized. It is truly a gorgeous color, one that I am happy to have in my nail polish stash.

If you are at all interested in this color I suggest you snatch it up now as it is limited edition. I am still upset I did not pick up the gorgeous minty goodness of  Chanel Jade from a few years back *sigh*

Do you have any new nail polishes you’re obsessing over?
