Monday marked the day of my first visit to Chanel Beauty Boutique at Mönckebergstraße, Hamburg’s major shopping areas. The boutique opened a year ago and I had not managed going there, since I usually purchase my nail varnishes at Alsterhaus or online. But regarding the Neon Wave collection, I felt I had to get them at the Boutique, not wanting to wait for any delivery (they are boutique-exclusive). Which I did not regret of course. The shop assistants were lovely and the boutique is beautiful. So Chanel, so handy when you live in Hamburg.
As a fan of greens, I will show you Fantastic first.
All of the Neon Wave colours are flashy, but it’s hard to capture their brightness when taking photos. This might give you an idea.
Shown below is three coats of Fantastic – with top coat, the finish is normally semi-matte, and I realised that I actually prefer wearing these without top coat (which you will see with the blue one, Electric, in a different post). What is more, for the next manicure I tried white base, to bringt out the neon effect.
Nevertheless Fantastic stands out against the grey clouds.
