I'm pulling out an oldie but goodie today ... Chanel Sweet Lilac. This purple stunner is one of those colors that's just designed to bring a smile to your face every time you look at it.

Pretty in purple.
Sweet Lilac is such a good name for this color. As you can see, it's most definitely lilac and it's most definitely sweet! I love the pastel hue and the creamy texture -- it just begs to be worn once temperatures warm up.

I actually just painted my nails with it early this morning -- I woke up around 6:15, and since I don't leave for work until 7:30, I had a few minutes to spare after getting ready. I realized recently that I have an amazing Chanel nail polish collection (click here for proof -- and, spoiler alert, this isn't even all of them), and I don't wear them nearly as often as I should. So I quickly perused my collection and out popped Sweet Lilac!

How sweet it is to love Chanel Sweet Lilac.

The formula is fantastic on this polish -- two coats yielded even, opaque color with no streaks or patchy spots. I've always loved how easily Chanel nail polish glides onto the nail, too -- and, even though this shade is pretty glossy on its own, I still used a quick dry top coat so I would lock in shine (and be able to leave for work 10 minutes later without smudging it).

Unfortunately, Chanel Sweet Lilac came out in 2014, so it's no longer available. But if you can snag a bottle somehow, I highly recommend it -- it's the perfect color for spring!

What's on your nails right now? Let me know in the comments!

  9. I'm in love with this shade! I haven't been using any color on my nails since they're artificial and she adds just the right amount of sparkle. But I'd use this one on my toes all summer long.

  11. I'm not one that loves to wear light shades of polishes due to i have a fair skin, but when i do i receive many compliments. So i wear it mostly when i feel it bit down just so that i can get a little bit of attention - :-)
