NOTD - Chanel Le Vernis - Rouge Carat

Ooh ladies, were are excited over at Lovely Girlie Bits HQ (semi-d on the northside).  We are in possession of the Christmas nail polish offering from Chanel's Les Scintillances de Chanel holiday 2011 collection, Le Vernis in Rouge Carat.  You may drool now.

Rouge Carat is a rich, vibrant, shimmering red nail polish that screams Christmas party.  On first glance, you can see the red shimmer but as you look at it from different angles, it has the most subtle fuchsia pink shimmer running through it and the tiniest hint of gold shimmer making it a pain in the behind to photograph.  But did we let that stop us?  No, it was glamour shot time.  Much direction and coaxing was needed.  I felt like Mr. J in America's Next Top Model.

Joanne's nails were used for the swatcharoonies as I have something else to show you on my nails.  After one swipe of Rouge Carat, she fell in love immediately and so did I.  Rouge Carat is a really thick, pigmented polish so one coat is enough, but me being the OCD person that I am always has to apply at least two coats, so the photos you see below are with two coats of Rouge Carat and one coat of Seche Vite top coat.

Looks like a regular red shimmery nail polish doesn't it?  Let's get up close and personal with it shall we?

It's a truly stunning, multidimensional nail polish that has to be seen in the flesh because these photos really don't do it justice.

It's a gorgeous polish for the Christmas season and is heading towards the metallic trend but the subtlety of the shimmer draws it back, making it elegant and classic.

It's out in shops here on November 4th for the sum of €21.50.  Will it be on your Christmas list?
