http://www.opi.com/ for retailers. I pruchased mine from Ulta. My budget and I have decided to slow down on buying so much nail polish...so you will see more vintage nail polish colors from my personal collection. I eventually want to blog about my entire stash but how can I when I buy so much polish? So I fugured this will be the way to do it. Anyway, until next time peachies!
Hello peachies! The lemony polish that is Mimosa is from Chanel's summer 2011 collection, Les Fleurs d'été which means "Summer Flowers" or "Summer of Flowers." Chanel's formula is a 4-free (free of toluene, formaldehyde, phthalates/DBP and formaldehyde resin.) Of course, Mimosa includes Chanel's infamous "hide-and-seek" shimmer that usually makes their polishes stand out from the rest. Yellow donned the new color trend for summer nail polish, I had to pick this one up. Generally, yellow nail polish is a PAIN to apply. Even the best brands have applications issues with their yellow nail polish. With that being said, Mimosa is one of the best yellows to date. Not only is the color the "just right" yellow, not too much orangey undertones going on, the application was breeze considering the general pain applying yellow can be. Of course, I went with three coats instead of two but two coats would have been okay. Three is my lucky number. The only issue I have with Mimosa is the "hide-and-seek" shimmer really hid on my nails, almost non-existent L. Want the lemony goodness that is Mimosa? It retails for $23 and is available at most major department stores (Nordstrom, Macy's) and online at http://www.chanel.com/. (Sorry for the crappy pics:-\)

Hello peachies! Morning Rose is from Chanel's Summer 2011 collection, Les Fleurs d'été which means "Summer Flowers." The name of the collection alone just makes me anxious for summer to come;-) Chanel's formula is a 4-free (free of toluene, formaldehyde, phthalates/DBP and formaldehyde resin). Morning Rose is a squishy, coral-looking pink with a subtle golden shimmer. The color reminds me of the roses in my grandmother's garden (ahh...memories;-) This color is absolutely gorgeous! The application was excellent, not too think or thin, just right. I applied three coats although two coats probably would have be just fine. I am a bit anal when it comes to how many coats I apply so I usually go with three. Morning Rose is very Claire Huxtable, demure and feminine. I think Morning Rose is a shade that will look great on everyone. I honestly can't think of any dupes, Morning Rose is unique! Want Morning Rose? It retails for $23 and is available at most major department stores (Nordstrom, Macy's) and online at http://www.chanel.com/. Happy Mother's Day weekend to all of the mothers!
