Chanel Le Vernis Orange Fizz 307I was thinking of putting on one of my new, untried polishes for my current mani, but this beautiful orange kept calling me from my polish drawer. It just seems so “summer” to me.

Chanel Le Vernis Orange Fizz 307 nail polish was part of the Cote d’Azur collection in Summer 2009. It’s a beautiful, mid-tone coral creme. No obvious, or hidden, shimmer in this one. At first I thought that it would be too similar to Le Vernis Distraction 549, but while there may be a slight similarity in undertone, Distraction sports a decidedly pink cast and a blue hidden shimmer. Very different in real life.

Much like Distraction, however, Orange Fizz was a bit of a pain to apply. Not impossible, mind you, but more like what I expect from China Glaze than what I expect  from Chanel. First thin coat was a bit streaky, and the second coat had to go on thicker in order to compensate. This is 2 coats of Orange Fizz over Chanel Base Protectrice and topped with Seche Vite quick dry top coat.

Chanel Le Vernis Orange Fizz 307 is available at Chanel counters and on Chanel.com for US $26.

My reviews are of products I purchased, and that I (usually) love. Other than affiliate links with Amazon, I receive no compensation, samples or other products of any kind.
