Chanel Hong Kong Collection – Le Vernis Eastern Light Review and Swatches

March 5, 2013

I’m wearing Chanel Le Vernis Eastern Light from the Hong Kong Collection today. As you can see from the picture, it’s pretty much an opaque pure white color in cream finish with no shimmer. I wouldn’t say this color knocks my socks off, or a must-have for AUD$40 a pop. But as I am going through a pale nail color phase this season, I do find Eastern Light appeals to me for the following reasons:

– I like the contrast of the white color against my skin color. It makes the nails pop and gives a very clean manicured look.

– If you’ve grown weary of wearing vampy colors like me, it’s refreshing to wear a color that is completely on the other end of color spectrum!

Wearing 2 coats of Eastern Light. The quality is standard Chanel – 2 to 3 coats give an even and glossy finish.

I love the look of the polish so much! I always loved to wear white polish but I used to use Sally Hansen’s version which has a nice formula but the white does look a bit harsh and chalky. The Chanel looks so glossy and beautiful–really, really nice! I also love how the white mani looks with your short nails (in my opinion, both white and black nail polish look best with short, neat nails)

Hi Reika, does this make hands look more tan? Does it go on streaky? Thank you!

Hi ra, as with most Chanel light colored nail polishes, the first 2 coats are a little streaky, but the final coat will make it all even. It doesn’t make my hands look more tan.
