CHANEL: Morning Rose

Pin It I received this polish in a swap with my friend Angelique! I've never owned anything Chanel besides perfume haha. I was super excited to try this!

Chanel Morning Rose

Jump over!

I never tried Chanel's polishes, I can't fork over the $26! My wallet won't let me and neither will my conscience hahaha

Here's a bunch of swatches of Morning Rose for ya:

I had high expectations for this polish due to price tag and brand, I won't lie. Sadly those expectations quickly got shot down :[

Morning Rose is a nice mauve rose color with yellow/orange shimmer! It has a slightly jelly finish to it which I like! The formula made me a sad panda though... The first coat went on smooth as butter no issues... until I wanted it to dry. I don't think asking a thin polish layer to dry in 15 minutes is a lot to ask for haha. I waited 15 minutes and it STILL was tacky. I slapped a 2nd coat on, didn't go on as smooth. The 2nd coat was very hard to apply and kinda dragged roughly along the nail. Any other polish would of gone on smooth even if the 1st layer wasn't dry! I couldn't even be bothered by trying to let it dry haha. I smacked on a layer of Seche Vite and all was good to go!

Once it was dry I really liked the color! I'm a big fan of mauve-y pinks haha. It was a nice soft pink... a bubble gum pink without being POW in your face thanks to hints of mauve.

Besides the dry time and formula I was kinda sad the pretty yellow-orange glass fleck you see in the bottle hardly transferred on the mail. *sigh* Can't win 'em all I guess!

I do like the color, did not like the formula. Glad I didn't dish out the funds to buy this son of a... and probably won't ever buy a Chanel polish after using this this one.

This polish seems to be discontinued, which is probably for the best haha! Here is a link to eBay if you want to spend a pretty penny... As for all other Chanel polishes - here is a link to their website where you will find their current polishes for $26/bottle.

What do you think? Worth the trouble? Do you own any Chanels?

Until tomorrow,


  1. Ray Ban サングラスはいつから自分の生活に入り込んだのか、もう忘れてしまいました。子供のごろ、誕生日のプレゼントとして、レイバン RB2140をもらったことがあります。中学生の時、近視になってしまいました。友人から一本のレイバン wayfarerをもらいました。今のレイバン サングラスのレンズと違うけど、そのフレームは確かにかけやすいです。

  2. Do you want to sell the bottle you have? I'd buy it for the $26....
