Chanel Les Jeans de Chanel Swatches & Review

Today I have Chanel Les Jeans de Chanel collection to share with you. This collection was released for New York's Fashion Week for a limited time. I believe there are only a few more days left before these disappear from the Chanel website, but I'm not too sure about that. Let's have a look at the collection.

Coco Blue is a gorgeous sky blue with hints of shimmery glow. 3 coats. I absolutely love this color, I know there are plenty of sky blue polishes out there but there's something about this one that just looks so gorgeous.

Blue Boy is a muted blue creme with grayish tones. 2 coats. Another interesting color. I love the muted look. It has a slight jelly finish, which I like.

Blue Rebel is a muted navy blue creme. 2 coats. This one also has a slightly muted look to it. It also has a slight jelly finish.

The three colors are not unique per se. And not to mention the price. These retail for $29 a bottle. That's a little redonk, and I'm a little redonk to actually purchase all three. But you know because it's Chanel. I did like all three of them, even though they are not unique. The formula for these were pretty good. I'm happy that Chanel is finally improving their formula, because I know in the past I hated it. They do chip easily though, so that's another thing Chanel needs to work on if they want their polish to be worth the money.

But in my opinion, no matter how great the formula is, no matter how lasting the wear is, a bottle of polish should not cost more than $20, designer brand or not. That's just my thought.

So was anyone crazy like me and purchased these as well? Which ones are your favorite?


  1. I love "Blue Boy"! Chanel makes such beautiful colors :-)

  2. I agree with you that Chanel polishes are too expensive (specially for me as I'm a student) but I like blue trend specially the lighter version and I'm definitely looking for some cheap dupes ;)

  3. I think the Nubar Jeans Collection is going to be similar to this one. Maybe it will be worth the wait. Anyone has it already?

  4. I agree with you, Chanel has very nice colors, BUT I wouldn't dare spend that much on polish, that's a pair of shoes, AND if I ever, ever did, that polish should last a week! IMO

  5. WAY too pricy now - I bought a few at $25 but now??? Gosh - I need to eat too ya know! I also am anxious to see the Nubar jeans collection swatched. Thanks for swatching these - the first peek I have seen of them on nails for real! I like the middle one best.
