Happy Monday Lovelies!
If you read this post last week you'll already know that the Chanel AW14 make up collection launched last Friday. From the publicity shots, I was totally lusting after the nail varnishes & treated myself to all three colours & trust me when I say they are all GORGEOUS! I couldn't wait to tell you about them.
On a side note, I also fell in love with the blusher, caved in & bought that, but as I haven't had chance to use it yet I'll post about it when I've had more of a play.
So here they are in all their glory...
I was surprised in the bottle how much of a bluey black Orage turned out to be, but having tested it on the nail it really looks more black than blue.
I swatched all three colours on my nails to see which colour I was going to wear Saturday night. The great thing about these shades is that they'll go with pretty much anything you want to wear for autumn. In a nutshell, they're your perfect go to shades for AW14.
Which one do you like best?

The above swatches were just two coats of each shade (no base or top coat).
I ended up opting for Secret as I was wearing a black, cream & nude outfit on Saturday night (celebrating Ian's brothers 50th birthday).
It's great that Chanel have finally brought out such a gorgeous nude shade. The below shot is with base coat, three coats of Secret & a top coat. Shade wise, it's on the pinky/peachier side of nude which is going to work so well with all the clothing around in this colour for AW14.
Consistency wise it was great to apply, as you'd expect from Chanel.

Amongst other things, I always post my nail shots on instagram, so if you want to check out how the latest shades look on the nail, you can follow me here on instagram @intotheblonde.
Wishing you all a wonderful week
