Dope Taupe. Still Rebel Collection of autumn 2016. This is classy chic, taupe with a splash of grey.
Two coats applied.
Just about to get the new Chanel nail colours for Christmas, here is some sort of classic shade, Particulière, but with the new formula of 2016 (see here for the previous version). I still like this elegant taupe; it matches every occasion, always looking good – love to combine it with a bold lip, for instance.
Two coats shown below.
So here is Precious, the sister polish of Lovely of this year’s Diorsnow collection (which is Asia exclusive). The colour is taupe combined with silver in a semi-sheer base. It’s sparkling too and has a shimmer finish.
Shown below is two coats. I have worn precious twice now, not because I like this shade so much but to find out what to think about it. It’s not a favourite, I have to admit – maybe I’ll try it again when it gets really sunny outside. It looks pretty in the bottle but a bit boring on my nails, although it goes well with my skin tone. And Precious is in fact unique in my stash.
Chanel again, with an older release: Trapèze, combining grey/silver with hints of beige and taupe. Frost finish.
The formula of Trapèze is a bit sheer, so three coats were needed to achieve opaqueness.
One of my most recent purchases for autumn – and a beautiful colour. Pied-de-Poule combines beige and taupe.
On my nails, it looks a bit like a nude shade. Pretty. 🙂 Application was two coats.
Once again, I have an older Dior to show, although Beige Mystique aka Mystic Beige comes with a bigger proportion of taupe/grey. It’s even more special because of its shimmer.
As with most of my swatches, this is two coats.
Have a closer look at the shimmer of Beige Mystique.
