Chanel Riva from the Collection Côte D'azur

Happy December!

So after much heavy decision making, I've decided to get the Chanel Riva from the Collection Côte D'azur. Nevertheless, I am quite happy that I bought it. I love pale blue polishes and this one, I must say is stunning. Some people may not see any uniqueness about it, but I like it a lot.

I took a picture of it in direct sunlight and under fluorescent lights because both pictures came out with different color variations. Under fluorescent lights it looks like a vibrant baby blue creme. It's not that vibrant in person, it's a lot more pale. Very similar to the sunlight picture.

Riva is a pale blue base with very subtle turquoise flecks. It is quite sheer. I did it under four coats to reach this color.

I took my time to do apply this because I love the color and wanted it to turn out nicely. Waiting out between each coats really helped. The formula was actually pretty good. It wasn't thick like the usual Chanel polishes. I wasn't disappointed at this polish, although I was disappointed with the price. For a nail polish that costs almost $30 (after tax) is just a little ridiculous in my opinion. But that's the price I pay for being obsessed with nail polish I suppose.

So that's all I have for today!
