The first product that caught my eye from the Summertime de Chanel 2012 collection was the Le Vernis Nail Color is Island. I also purchased Delight and I'll post that later this week.
Island is pretty sheer and I needed 3 coats to get it to look opaque. Although it looks more beautiful semi-sheer, which can be achieved with 2 coats.
Island is a metallic pinkish-beige color which is great if you want a toned-down shade to wear everyday. I think I'll wear this on formal occasions because of its classic and elegant look.
The thing I love about Chanel nail colors is that they dry quickly. The only issue I have is that on my toenails, they last up to a week without chipping but on my fingernails, its the opposite (even with a base and top coat). I think that's more of user error though. Haha!
That being said, any suggestions on how I can make my polish last longer?
