Chanel 579 Paparazzi

Another of the new Chanel polishes, exciting times!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. I'd say it's a brown with a subtle shimmer to it, you can just about make it out in the 2nd bottle pic! I know, I know it's a brown and I like it *shock*, so yeah this brown has defeated me lol! Lasted well.

Ruby Wing Gypsy

Another colour changer!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. I'd say indoors it is a minty green and outdoors, more a spring green. Changes quickly! Looks good.
