I tried out Chanel's latest polish offering, Mimosa - a bright, minimal shimmer, tweety bird kind of yellow. I was really skeptical because the only yellow polishes I am use to seeing are the 80's revival neon polishes. My Chanel M.A. - the delightful Ms. M has been calling me to let me know that this yellow will not disappoint me. She knows me so well and she knows I have a weakness for anything Chanel. So I made a point to make an appearance and play with the new Summer collection.

As you can see only Chanel can put out a chic Yellow polish that isn't Taxi neon yellow!
But if you closer you'll see that even after 3 coats there's major streaking.

Lately, I have been trying to do my own polish to save some money and I guess buying a $25 nail polish really wouldn't help my cause either.
A personal pass...pretty color, yes but not worth (my time and money). I say if you are a serious collector or want to really highlight tan or fair skin do pick this one up!
$25 at all Department Stores carrying the Chanel cosmetic line.
