When I arm-swatched the Chanel summer collection, I wondered if Mimosa was better suited for medium-to-dark skintones. Yellow can be a tricky color.
To maximize my swatching potential, I requested Mimosa on one hand and Morning Rose on the other. (These photos were taken late in the afternoon.)
I was surprised to find that Mimosa looked pretty cute on the fair-skinned girls getting their nails done. I asked for three coats, to maximize the color and minimize visible-nail-line. The subtle shimmer that I saw in my tape swatch is really subtle on the fingers.
Morning Rose is easy to like: a not-too-bright warm pink (the gold sparkle is very subtle).
But I actually found I liked the two colors best together. (Perhaps I should have asked for an accent nail? A Funky French manicure?) This last photo was taken with my cell phone camera, indoors at the event.
Chanel polishes are $25 each.
