CHANEL LE VERNIS in Azure and Bel-Argus From L’Été Papillon de Chanel Summer 2013 Collection: Swatches, Pictures & Review

I mentioned on Friday the Chanel pop up mani shop that has taken up temporary residence in Arnott's Dublin. Having salivated over the visuals from the L’Été Papillon de Chanel Summer 2013 Collection for the past two weeks I decided we'd have to partake. 

Inspired by the colours of a butterflies wings both Azure (above) and Bel-Argus (below) are nothing short of stunning on the nail. 

Bel-Argus (blue) & Azure (turquoise green)
While stunning in to look at on the nail, it's not until the light hits these polishes that they become truly incredible. Azure is a duo chrome turquoise that shifts to green, purple and gold and Bel -Argus is chock full of royal blue micro glitter once the sun shine hits. 

Do you want the best news of all? I'm now three days into my Bel-Argus mani and there's not one chip. That's outstanding news for Chanel and gives me hope for future colours. 

While hard pressed to decide which polish would be joining my vast collection, I came to the conclusion that Azure was the one for me. Like Peridot before it, it's completely mesmerizing and it'll take quite a while to find anything like it on the high street. 

Azure and Bel-Argus are priced at €22.50 from all Chanel counters for a limited time. If you are close to Dublin though I'd highly recommend paying the gals a visit in Arnott's as your manicure with the Chanel colour of your choice is redeemable against purchase. YAY!

Tell me, are either of these colours calling your name?
