Many, many thanks to Soaper1 for tracking down and swatching Chanel’s limited edition “Soho” polishes. As always, her perfect capture of the sparkle in Strong makes me want a polish I didn’t know I needed.
Chanel’s grand reopening of their boutique in Soho coincided with New York’s Fashion Night Out (September 10). To commemorate the event, they released the limited edition Soho collection, which included nail polishes Steel and Strong. Strong is a dark eggplant with shimmer.Â Steel is a very dark gunmetal grey with shimmer. Like other recent Chanel releases (Jade, Pardoxal), Steel and Strong both have a dark, hidden shimmer which is really only visible in bright sunlight. Both of these applied and wore beautifully.Â Each manicure isÂ three coats with one coat of Poshe.Â These polishes retail for $23 each.
