Here she is my pretties, cult fave Chanel Blue Satin:
Mmmmm, she's so pretty. And application was a dream, very nearly one coat, although there was more depth of colour from two. The only thing that gave me problems was the lid, the square lid pulls off to reveal a smaller lid more reminiscent of your standard polish bottle lid, but it was a little on the short side making holding it a wee bit fiddly.
It was always a given that I was going to love this colour. I mean it's a blue/black with shimmer. And it really is utterly gorgeous. In anything but the darkest of lights the blue shines through in that lit from within way that's always a winner. It's like someone crushed up sapphires and embedded them in black glass.
So, the verdict: Are the rave reviews of this right? Hell yeah! Application and colour are both stunning. Is it worthy of its cult status? I think so. Would I pay the full price of NZ$40.00 a bottle? Hell no! As much as I love the top end brands, I have a limit of NZ$25.00 for a bottle of polish, and the best application and colour in the world aren't going to convince me that anything more than that is worth the money. What about you my pretties? What's your maximum spend on a bottle?
