NOTD Chanel Coco Blue

With Flash
A quick spring NOTD for you today.  I received this a couple of weeks ago from my mum for my birthday and I haven't been able to try it out until now as I've I've only just removed my Shellac.

This is one of Chanel's recent limited edition shades that was released in the Spring with two other blue-hued polishes, Blue Rebel and Blue Boy.  I believe this is the only one of the three that is limited edition.

No flash
I found the colour on the nails to be virtually identical to that in the bottle - a gorgeous pastel blue cream.  The photos seem to show a more vibrant colour similar to China Glaze's For Audrey, but in reality it is much more subdued.  

The polish applies smoothly and evenly and has a similar consistency to other Chanel polishes.  It can be quite runny so you do need to take care when applying, although the wide brush allows for easy, one-stroke painting.  

The photos above show three coats.  I could have managed with two but I found it looked slightly more opaque with three.  I find Chanel polishes to wear very well on me, despite not using a top-coat, and I can easily go for 3-4 days before any chips or tip wear appears.

Verdict
Whilst this may not be a unique shade for many, it is unique to my collection and I always have a fondness for Chanel polishes due to their easy application and great consistency.  A perfect shade for Summer, I suspect I will be wearing this a lot over the next few months.
