Chanel Tutti Frutti Nail Polish is one of the nail polishes repromoted as part of the Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Collection. It was first released in the Reflets D’Ete de Chanel Summer Collection together with Chanel Sweet Lilac, Mirabella, Pink Tonic and Eastern Light nail polishes. It was the only nail polish from the Summer collection that I didn’t get because it was not a Limited Edition item.
Chanel describes Le Vernis:
☆ Classic and trend-defining shades in an exclusive formula that strengthens and moisturizes nails as it delivers high-shine colour.
☆ Applies evenly without streaking.
☆ All Chanel nail products are formaldehyde-free, toluene-free and DBP-free.
Chanel classifies Tutti Frutti nail polish as a soft coral. In the bottle, you can see that there are gold micro shimmers swimming in the wonderful creamy sea of salmon pink.
On my nails, Chanel Tutti Frutti Nail Polish is a medium coral pink that leans more pink than coral. It seems to be a light watermelon pink with subtle shimmers. The shimmers are barely noticeable unless you really stare closely at it. Because of this, the finish of Chanel Tutti Frutti Nail Polish seems to be more like a soft cream.
In terms of application, Chanel Tutti Frutti Nail Polish is not really that hard to apply. The brush is soft enough that it glides smoothly over my nails. However, the consistency is a little bit thin, so it was kind of streaky at first coat. Applying the second coat is more even, smoother and easier than the first, so I guess I can’t complain.
Chanel Tutti Frutti Nail Polish is a little bit on the sheer side, but 2 or 3 coats is enough to achieve an opaque and even color.
Chanel Tutti Frutti Nail Polish has a pretty creamy finish. The finish is a bit shiny, so I didn’t bother applying a top coat over it. I only used Chanel Beaute des Ongles Protective Base Coat before applying Chanel Tutti Frutti to protect my nails.
Chanel Tutti Frutti Nail Polish takes just a few minutes to dry on my nails. Even without a top coat, it doesn’t easily chip. It lasts about 4 to 5 days on me before it chips around the edges.
Chanel Tutti Frutti nail polish is a very pretty pink color that is perfect for summer. Imagine lying down on the sandy beach soaking the sun and people are staring admiringly at your nails. Pair your bright pink nails with a bright bikini set and you’ll surely sizzle at the beach! 😉
Summer is just around the corner. Is your nail polish collection ready for it? Have you tried Chanel Tutti Frutti nail polish?
