Color of the Week – Chanel Antilope and Perle Rosee

Today’s Color of the Week, I’m double featuring 2 Chanel Limited Edition Nail Colours – 187 Antilope (Summer 2008) and 257 Perle Rosee (Holiday 2008).

Both come in the same Chanel packaging as regular line polishes, with the clear glass base and the black square lid.

Perle Rosee is a pearly frosty beige pink color (left) and Antilope is a creamy gold champagne color. They’re both light and soft focus.

Since the Antilope is so light, I wouldn’t recommend doing 1 coat as it won’t even cover your natural nail color. However by doing 2 coats, it’ll be fully opaque and have a nice glowy finish. I say Anitilope is pretty neutral while Perle Rosee is more on the warm tone side. The finish is very similar to the Antilope. I’m using it as an accent color on the top right.

Both colors are super creamy and the finishes are subtle yet classic. The drying speed is not the fastest but still acceptable. My only concern is again the staying power. I’ve never left these on for over a week before either I took them off or they chipped on me but generally I can’t have any Chanel nail polish on for over a week.
