Chanel Nouvelle Vague: Lemming Squashed!

Today, I decided to wear one of my most prized polishes: Chanel Nouvelle Vague. This color is a light, robin's egg blue with a creme consistency. This definitely falls under the category of Tiffany blue. Nouvelle Vague is from Chanel's summer 2010 collection. Although the polish retailed for $24 when it first came out, it later became discontinued & is hard to find (and rather expensive) on eBay. I paid $15 for this baby on a blog sale. It's all a matter of luck sometime. ;-)

If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, China Glaze For Audrey looks a lot like this polish. Here is a live comparison between the two if you're curious as to how they compare/contrast.

Again, don't mind the messy (well, messier than usual) swatches today. I woke up late and only had a little bit of time to paint these.

The ever sloppy car pic.. just to give you a shot of the bottle!

 What I Used:
1 coat OPI Nail Envy
2 coats Chanel Nouvelle Vague
* Accent fingers 1 coat OPI Simmer and Shimmer
1 coat Seche Vite Top Coat

Bottom Line:
I'm an absolute Chanel freak, so it's no surprise that I loved this polish. The application was great- the tiny errors you see are my fault, not the polish's. The color is awesome, and really brightened up my dreary, crappy day. I just feel bad for my poor nails.. they were stuck working with shoes for seven hours at work, and now I don't have time to paint my nails again until tomorrow.. but, such is life!

Happy polishing ladies!! :-) As always, thanks for tuning in! & welcome to my new followers, I thank you all so much for your support; I'll be checking out your blogs, too!


  1. I love Chanel polishes as well! My fave is khaki Brun also discontinued so I have to use it sparingly! Love your new blog look am going to do mine with Jen as well!

  2. Gorgeous! I just recently got into Chanel but now I have 3 (Graphite, Paradoxal and Peridot) and I'm obsessed!

  3. It's gorgeous! It looks a lot like For Audrey, too. I'm glad I have that one.
    Chanel polishes are like THE best! If I could afford it, I would have a lot more! :)

  4. Glad you finally got your lemming (er one of them at least). So which nails are Chanel and which ones are the For Audrey comparison? Or were you in too much of a hurry and forgot to do the compare???? I have For Audrey and like many, adore it.

  5. i can always appriciate a nice glitter accent nail(:
    very pretty hun.
