A short while back, I dedicated an entry to this collection, made a wishlist including this collection, and I am very glad that I finally got them! :) I got 2 out of the 3 colors in this collection, because I thought that Khaki Brun would just be another 'interesting' shade of brown in my stash.. though it would be nice to get the whole set... why I got 2 of each color is because the other set is a gift for my gf. :)
The Khakis De Chanel collection is exclusively available to the opening of the (HUGE) Chanel store in Marina Bay Sands. It will not be launched at the regular counters --- or so that's what we were told.
Here are some pictures of the nail polish in various lighting and 'white balance' conditions... I find it a little hard to capture the exact shade of the colors, they are creamier and more muted IRL than the pictures show.
EDIT: I re-took the swatch pictures!! here they are:
I lurve Khaki Vert! A creamy army green color, and I don't have any dupes, nor anything like it in my stash yet. I have ordered Essie's Sew Psyched, and when it's here, I might show comparison swatches.
I find Khaki Rose rather similar to Particuliere except that the former is a tinge lighter and with pinkier tones. Not dupes IMO but very similar. I am also not sure why it is called Rose.. because I don't see any reddy or pinky shades in this mostly brown color.
and speaking of Particuliere, let's look at them side by side:
And this is my current little stash of Chanel Le Vernis. I find that those that I have all have very good texture and color payoff, and not all Chanel polishes have the same formulation. It is best to try them out at the counters, and also check out reviews before making a decision. The formulation is creamy, but not too thick, and most of the time, 2 even coats give you true color payoff.
I think my next Chanel acquistions might very well be Dragon, Vandetta and/or Rouge Noir. There is no point in justifying the prices of these nail polishes, so I shan't even bother. I tend to lean towards the LE shades, seeing as they are harder to get, and also being featured at the runway color adds a tad more glam factor to these overpriced goodies somewhat, IMO.
That's all, and thanks for looking!
