Khaki is the new black

It's been over 2 weeks since my last post! I've been off the face of the earth doing assignments and presentations, and will have to continue focusing on study for my end-of-semester exams. Onwards to my pretty...

I saw this polish at a little clothing boutique in early August, so before Chanel's collection was released. I didn't purchase it when I first saw this polish, but when I went there after a week it was sold out! I've been lemming it ever since and continued visiting the store every 2 weeks or so. FINALLY, I got my hands on it this Friday.

I haven't got Chanel's Khaki Vert so I can't compare the two, but from looking at online swatches, this polish is slightly greener. All the swatches online look different, so I can't be sure.

I tried to take the photos in different light to show a true representation of the colour. The polish itself looks different depending on the light so I can't pick which picture is the best representation... but I'd say the middle pic is the best.

So this polish is a creamy khaki, applies pretty well and dries relatively quickly. Two coats for opacity as in the pictures, but if you look at my index finger, its started to chip. After one day of wear. NOT impressed! But that might be because I didn't apply a topcoat this time round. I have to remove it before going to work anyway, so tis okay.


  1. What clothing boutique is it? :O you are such a stalker hahaha. I bet they were hiding the polish from you, for their own amusement >=D

  2. Garnsis boutique? In Elizabeth Arcade.

    Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if they were hiding it on purpose. Probably had a good laugh every time I visited and left empty handed.
