NOTD – Chanel Rouge Carat Le Vernis

Chanel has got Christmas lips and nails just right in the Limited Edition collection, Les Scintillances de Chanel.

I love this red.  It’s the perfect shade, with just a hint of golden and pearly shimmer.  I bought the matching lipstick too, called Famous, which is just the right blend of red with a tiny hint of pink that makes it easy to wear.
And can someone tell me if the formulation has been changed? A while back, I couldn’t keep Chanel on my nails for more than a day without it chipping; now all of a sudden, it lasts a week or so!  
This photo was taken a whole seven days after I applied it (two coats sandwiched between a base and top coat) and it’s still going strong!

    Lovely! Just had a look at the polish in Boots but forgot to look at the lippie! x

    The lippie is gorgeous! Wore it over the weekend. So comfortable on the lips too. Might do a separate post on it 🙂
