Part of the Harmonie de Printemps Spring 2012 collection (that also included April and June). May 535 is a go-with-anything springy pink that I am quite certain there are 100s of dupes of. However, since my nail polish collection philosophy is to try
very hard to not duplicate colors in my stash, I don’t have other polishes to compare to directly.
Formula is a creme that is the classic, typical Chanel – a little streaky with the first thin coat that gets beautifully opaque, smooth, and self-levels with the thicker second coat. Unlike many of the Chanel cremes, however, there is no hidden shimmer in May. It’s just a straight-ahead color.
This application is 2 coats over Poshe Nail Strengthening Treatment Base Coat and topped with Out the Door quick dry top coat. Please excuse the small dent in my index in middle finger – have no idea how that happened but let’s just say that I was rushed at the end of my mani.
Chanel Le Vernis May 535 nail polish is available for US $26 on chanel.com and at Chanel counters worldwide.
