There’s no genie in this bottle, but it will grant three of your wishes: happiness, contentment and love! Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in 623 Mirabella gave me all of these three wishes today. In this gloomy and rainy day when I wanted to go out but couldn’t (I multiply in the rain – as in I go like 3 x 3 = 9 and so on. LOL!), it was my Sun in a bottle.
I had never been a fan of the color orange. I don’t hate it, but it’s not on my list of favorite colors. When I bought Mirabella together with some of the nail polishes from the Reflets D’Ete de Chanel Summer Collection, it was my least favorite. I only bought it because it was a Limited edition, so I chose it over Tutti Frutti which was Permanent. I figured that I can always come back for Tutti Frutti, so I didn’t buy that one, yet, and settled for Mirabella instead.
In the bottle, Mirabella is a boring, medium orange. On my nails, though, it is a bright, almost neon orange with a shiny, cream gel-like finish. It applies really well without streaking, and the consistency was not too thick nor too thin. I did experience one tiny bubble, but I think that was my fault. 😉
Chanel describes it:
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.
Two coats are all I need to achieve this opaque and even color. I love that I don’t have to apply a top coat because it already has a very nice, shiny finish. However, I still used Chanel Beaute des Ongles Protective Base Coat to protect my nails. Mirabella lasts about 5 days before it chips around the edges.
I used my camera’s flash in the photo above so you can see the neon effect of Mirabella.
As always, if you have any questions or experiences with this product, or any feedback, whether good or bad, please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts by leaving a comment below. Thanks… stay fab and savvy! ✌
