NOTD: Chanel "Particuliere"

This is only my second Chanel ever! Yep, I've just not been tempted til now - not even by "Jade". Not even by "Kaleidoscope", even though it was unique I didn't really fancy it. My other Chanel is an ancient one called, ehm, uh... *hobbles off to Helmer to check the name* .."Electric". It's a 'safe' corally-red with gold shimmer I bought in Schiphol airport some years ago.

"Particuliere" however has won my heart. And the formula - to die for! Super-opaque and super-smooth, no clean-up required as you can see! Please excuse the scaly cuticles, even a super manicure isn't doing it for my poor hands lately. I am hoping this week on the sofa will allow lots of jojoba oil and my Soap & Glory manicure mittens will nourish them back to health...

This is 2 coats over Sally Hansen Diamond Strength 2-in-1 and with a slick of Sally Hansen MegaShine top coat. I love it. So much. It's so much more than a mushroomy grey nail polish, it's the s/s 2010 fashion season in a bottle! :)

Oooh, I'd been waiting to see a swatch of Chanel's infamous 'greige'. It looks slightly olive/green in your shots, same IRL?
