Just Another Mani Monday: Chanel Spring 2011

Happy New Year everyone! We’re excited to get the first Monday of the year out of the way — always hard to get back into the routine after the holidays isn’t it? To help beat the New Year Monday blues, we thought we’d take a closer look at the beautiful “it color” from  Chanel Spring: Black Pearl.

Black Pearl is a really interesting and unique polish. And even though it’s going to be great for spring, it’s also one of those colors that works beautifully right now in the dead of winter. It’s true to its namesake, as it really does resemble black pearls. The pearly green undertone is always present, even indoors.

While not the greatest close-up, you can see how green it is compared to the black of my laptop. I applied two coats over a base as well as a layer of Seche Vite. I didn’t find this to be streaky in the least and am very happy with this polish. I definitely think if you’re going for a Chanel Spring nail, Black Pearl is your winner. However, Pearl Drop and Peche Nacree are worthy sidekicks if you’ve got the dollars to spare.

Let us know what you’re thinking of Black Pearl, and how your New Year is starting off!
