Chanel Gold Fingers Le Vernis

March 3, 2012
The Las Vegas de Chanel collection was released a month ago exclusively to the Bellagio Chanel Boutique in Las Vegas. It has recently been launched online at Chanel.com and select stores (I know Nordstrom Seattle has received the whole collection). I decided to wait for photos and reviews to surface before jumping to order. I was going to pass on the entire collection but once I saw it online I caved and ordered the Gold Fingers Nail Polish ($28, limited edition).
Chanel Gold Fingers is a sparkley liquid gold shimmer. It has a similar finish to Graphite with a slightly clearish base loaded with multi-colored sparkles. Although initial photos made me think that Gold Fingers would be too yellow for my skin I decided to try. It is indeed very yellow, much like pure 24K gold. I don’t know that I love it but I don’t exactly hate it. 

Here you can see it’s very sheer with 1 coat. Unfortunately although it’s sheer on a naked nail, it’s not quite sheer enough to be a layering color over other shades (like Illusion D’Or was). It still has enough color to cover the nail if you try it over, say a red or orange.

I did pull a few other golden shades. I prefer Golden Sand and Gold Lame from seasons past compared to the new Gold Fingers. L to R: Dior Or Divin, Chanel Gold Fingers, Gold Lame, Golden Sand and Peridot.

I passed on everything else from the Vegas collection and don’t intend on ordering anything else, did you purchase anything? Thoughts?
