Chanel Summer 2010 has a delightful pink nail polish, Riviera ($23)(Le Vernis Nail Colour Riviera #537) which has the capability of putting me in a summer frame of mind. Although there are many pinks on the market, I particularly enjoy Chanel’s vibrant creme nail color formula and so I knew that I had to have this one.
Two coats gives me a vibrant look that somehow looks appropriate without moving into the neon category. Somehow, Chanel still makes the color looks special. I have several medium-to-dark pinks, it’s a color that I love, and I’m hard pressed to find a duplicate with precisely the same look.
Riviera will (as you can see in Chanel’s promotion picture) look fabulous with this summer’s Rouge Allure in Super–they have the same color tone.
Here is my on-the-nail swatch, taken with a flash as I had already lost the sun for the day:
I find this formula very easy to work with–it seems to spread without any problems. The above was done over Creative Nail Design’s Stickey base coat and with a topcoat by Poshe.
