Chanel Neon Wave (fall 2017)


While most of my current purchases are vintage/discontinued polishes, sometimes new releases catch my eye.  Last fall, Chanel’s Neon Wave came into my radar.  I have a weakness for Chanel polishes, especially when they release unusual colors.  How deep is my passion?  Back in September 2009, I stayed up until 2AM to order Jade from  I will sometimes do crazy things for Chanel polish.

Electric (two coats):  neon blue; this is far more vibrant in person.

Fantastic (two coats):  neon green; like Electric, also more vibrant in person.

Magnetic (two coats):  neon pink

Ultraviolet (two coats):  neon orange

The formula is a bit thick, but still shows visible nail line after 2 coats.  3 coats is needed for full opacity.

Chanel released 2 more neon shades in Spring 2018, Neon Rose (neon coral pink) and Scenario (neon red/pink).  They’ll be featured soon as well.
