The last thing I needed was another bright coral nail polish but when I saw Lilis I couldn’t resist buying it for my collection.
The coral belongs to Chanel Summer 2013 collection of 3 nail polishes (Lilis 647, Azure 657, and Bel-Argus 667). I remember the other two, Azure and Bel-Argus, made quite a noise after the release. I saw lots of swatches of the unique couple and not so many of Lilis.
Lilis may seem a bit boring I guess. After all, you cannot surprise a nail addict with a coral creme :) I did a little comparison to show you how similar (or different?) the Chanel is next to 3 other corals. In the pic below from left to right we have:
- Lumene Blooming
- Chanel 647 Lilis
- OPI Atomic Orange
- YSL Corail Colisee
The self levelling formula is very good, and the polish doesn’t stain my nails. The pics show 2 coats of Chanel Lilis over naked nails, all topped with a clear fast drying top.
Lilies goes well with a casual outfit, I wore it with jeans and a white T shirt, the bright colour being the main accent/accessory.
Thank you for reading! Hope you liked Lilis as much as I did. It really is a nice summer nail polish! Although I wouldn’t say that its quality or colour is better than of Lumene Blooming or OPI Atomic Orange. I’m glad I have the polish, but it’s easy to find something similar for less money.
Tomorrow I’m off for a little vacation. I don’t have any prescheduled posts, so I’ll see you when I’m back, in 4-5 days I think. Have a fun weekend ahead!
