Chanel Le Vernis is 5-Free (free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor). The signature square glass bottles are topped with a black square outer cap that is removed to reveal a stubby, round, ribbed inner cap. The brush is round, medium in length and width and reminds me of the old OPI brushes. It easily fans out and covers the nail without much resistance.
The consistency of the polishes in this collection is thin and pliable but packed with pigment, with the white being the one exception. The rest are all two coat confections that dry nice and glossy. Whites are notoriously difficult and Eastern Light certainly continues the tradition. It’s streaky and not the best at self leveling. I needed three coats and still wasn’t happy with the finish.
These are all listed as limited-edition on Chanel.com except for Tutti Frutti.

The first thing to do is find the right shade for your own skin. The bronzer aims to subtly darken the skin rather than completely changing the tone. In general it should only be two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Try to spread it out to clean skin to make sure that “warms” the tone of your skin, without making look fake.
Choose two different bronzers. One for summer when you are already tanned, and one for the winter when your skin is whiter! So the result will look consistent and not at all fake. Use more intense colors bronzer only to points the sun ‘hits‘, ie nose, forehead, cheekbones and chin. But beware, you must very gentle touches on in order to have as much as possible natural results.

There are specialized specifically for bronzer brushes available in the market, although a big like the onre for the blush can work equally well.

The bronzer inside should not have shimmer. What we want to achieve is to give color and sometimes shine, so find a bronzer that gives a natural glow or be completely neat, with nothing inside. In no case, however, we have shimmer because what it does is shine too much and it is not natural.
