5 Best Nail Polishes 2014

Best Nail Polishes 2014

I should have named this post as 5 Best Chanel Nail Polishes 2014 instead of 5 Best Nail Polishes 2014 since all the nail polishes here are from Chanel. 😉 I also have a few nail polishes from other brands, but most of the nail polishes in my collection are from Chanel. Since the quality of Chanel nail polishes is really superb, it’s not surprising that the best for me this year are all from Chanel. 🙂

Years ago, I wouldn’t be caught wearing a colored nail polish, especially a dark or a bright one. The only nail polishes I wore that time were the clear ones. But, after I was introduced to the beautiful world of Chanel makeup, I had come to love nail polishes. Whether shimmery or creamy, pink or red, or whatever color and finish, I buy them if they catch my eye.

Anyways, I want to share with you my 5 Best Nail Polishes that I’ve bought this year.

CHANEL TAPAGE NAIL POLISH
Chanel Notes de Printemps Spring 2014 Collection
Permanent Edition

Best Nail Polishes 2014

Chanel Tapage Nail Polish had first been released in the Chanel Notes de Printemps Spring 2014 Collection. It had been repromoted as part of the Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Collection. Chanel Tapage Nail Polish is classified as a bright pink. It is a gorgeous reddish coral pink with a cream finish. Chanel Tapage Nail Polish has no glitters nor any shimmers, but it still is a very pretty color. It has a very smooth texture and the brush glides easily across the nails delivering an even color.

The consistency of Chanel Tapage Nail Polish is just right. It’s not too thick nor too thin. One coating of Chanel Tapage Nail Polish is already opaque, but I still apply 2 to 3 coats for a more opaque and even finish. I’m able to get around 3 to 4 days of wear time before it chips around the edges.

I just realized that I haven’t reviewed Chanel Tapage Nail Polish yet. I will try to review it one of these days and will put a link to the full review here.

CHANEL MIRABELLA NAIL POLISH
Chanel Reflets D’Été de Chanel Summer 2014 Collection
Limited Edition

Best Nail Polishes 2014

Chanel Mirabella Nail Polish had been released in the Chanel Reflets D’Été de Chanel Summer 2014 Collection. It is a Limited Edition so I was glad that I was able to buy it because it is a very beautiful nail color for Summer. Chanel Mirabella Nail Polish is classified as a true orange. It is a pretty bright, medium orange with a cream finish. I love how it looks almost neon on my nails. Chanel Mirabella Nail Polish is not just a great color for Summer, but can also be an all-year-round color if you like partying. 😉

Chanel Mirabella Nail Polish has a very smooth texture and the brush glides easily across the nails. I didn’t experience any streaking nor any bubbles. It’s consistency is not too thin nor too thick. One coating of Chanel Mirabella Nail Polish is semi-opaque but I recommend applying at least 2 coats to get a really opaque and more even color. It lasts around 4 to 5 days on my nails before it chips around the edges.

CHANEL SWEET LILAC NAIL POLISH
Chanel Reflets D’Été de Chanel Summer 2014 Collection
Limited Edition

Best Nail Polishes 2014

Chanel Sweet Lilac Nail Polish had been released in the Chanel Reflets D’Été de Chanel Summer 2014 Collection. Unfortunately, it is also a Limited Edition. Chanel Sweet Lilac Nail Polish is classified as a lilac. It is a cool-toned pinkish lavender with a cream finish. It has a very creamy texture and the brush glides easily across the nails delivering an even color.

The consistency of Chanel Sweet Lilac Nail Polish is not too thick nor too thin. I didn’t experience any streaking nor any bubbles at all. One coating of Chanel Sweet Lilac Nail Polish is a bit sheer, so I recommend applying 2 to 3 coats for an opaque and even finish. Chanel Sweet Lilac Nail Polish lasts around 4 to 5 days on my nails before it chips around the edges.

CHANEL INTENTION NAIL POLISH
Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Collection
Limited Edition

Best Nail Polishes 2014

Chanel Intention Nail Polish had been released as part of the Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Collection. It is one of three Limited Edition nail polishes released in that collection. Chanel Intention Nail Polish is classified as a pearlescent beige. It is a gorgeous medium beige with gold shimmers. The brush is soft enough that it glides smoothly over my nails. Chanel Intention Nail Polish applies beautifully and evenly without any streaking nor any bubbles.

The consistency of Chanel Intention Nail Polish is a little bit thin and if only one coating is applied, the finish is too sheer. To get a more opaque and even color, I need to apply 2 to 3 coats of Chanel Intention nail polish. Without a top coat, I’m able to get around 4 to 5 days of wear time before it chips around the edges.

CHANEL PHENIX NAIL POLISH
Plumes Precieuses de Chanel Holiday 2014 Collection
Limited Edition

Best Nail Polishes 2014

Chanel Phenix Nail Polish had been released in the Plumes Precieuses de Chanel Holiday 2014 Collection. It is a very pretty Holiday color and it’s just too bad that it’s another Limited Edition item. Chanel Phenix Nail Polish is classified as a bright orange red. Without any shimmers, it is a beautiful bright orange red with a gorgeous shiny finish. It has a very smooth texture and the brush glides easily across the nails delivering an even color.

The consistency of Chanel Phenix Nail Polish is just right. It’s not too thick nor too thin. One coating of Chanel Phenix Nail Polish is already opaque, but I still apply 2 to 3 coats for a more opaque and even finish. Chanel Phenix Nail Polish lasts around 4 to 5 days on my nails before it chips around the edges.

Best Nail Polishes 2014

I have no favorite out of these 5 nail polishes because all of them are HOLY GRAILiciously awesome for me. It’s just too bad that all of them are Limited Edition except for Chanel Tapage nail polish. I just hope that these Limited Edition shades will be repromoted in the future so I can buy them again. 😉

How many Chanel nail polishes do you have in your nail polish collection? What are your best nail polishes for this year?
