I am not the one who draws stars and stripes on the nails, but I give you a blue NOTD for the sake of it.
When I first saw the promotion images of the Blue Rhythm de Chanel, I immediately thought about these two legacy nail polish shades I've had for years, Essie Mesmerize & Misa A Sin Worth Committing.
They are not exactly dupes. However, one vibrant medium blue creme and a deep navy with blue shimmer that are already in my collection doesn't really make me covet the new blue polishes from Chanel. Life needs other things than a pile of blue nail polishes.
There still is no sign of the collection in the U.S. market. Chanel even sent out an email pitching their last spring collection a few days ago. At this point I have to wonder what is wrong with them. My enthusiasm for the collection is slowing dying, guys.
Essie Mesmerize (L) & Misa A Sin Worth Committing (R)
I think Essie Mesmerize is at least a shade lighter than the Chanel Vibrato so that I secretly want it. Misa A Sin Worth Committing looks quite close to the Fortissimo, though.
These polishes are incredibly staining especially when you remove them. Still worth the effort, I'd say, although no sin is worth committing.
Have a happy 4th, my friends in the U.S.! :)
