NOTD: CHANEL Vendetta

Hello everyone!

I think this might be might last post of 2008, so I wanted to go out with a bang! I have mucho mega packing to do tomorrow and then we fly home to Michigan on Christmas day. We have a wonderful 6:30 a.m. flight that I am really looking forward to *wink*.

Today I am wearing the lovely CHANEL Vendetta, which is new for Spring 2009. Ohhhh I am in love with this one. On to the swatches!

CHANEL Vendetta indoor natural light:

CHANEL Vendetta is very similar to CHANEL Blue Satin in the sense that the shimmer is only visible outside in full on sun. It also has a very similar glossy, satiny and deep finish indoors. I think they should have called it Purple Satin or Violet Satin. The first picture of CHANEL Vendetta indoors is very true to life as far as the color goes, even though the shot is a bit blurry for my standards; it also represents the satiny finish very well. CHANEL Blue Satin has been my favorite nail polish for a long time but I think that CHANEL Vendetta *might* take the top spot from it. Maybe a tie. CHANEL Blue Satin is the only nail polish that I have ever bought a backup of. CHANEL Vendetta might be next.

Well, since this might be the last time that I am here in between now and the new year, I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you loyal readers. All of your comments and e-mails really add to to my enjoyment of blogging! I hope that all of you have a wonderful Christmas!

xoxo,
Katee

p.s. I apologize for the obnoxious watermark, I tried to make it as unobtrusive as possible. I am just sick of my pictures turning up everywhere on the Internet, being copied without my permission. Someone even had the nerve to post my pics to their Flickr photostream!! Now at least if people copy my pictures they will look like jerks, since they say "DO NOT COPY".

  8. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    I got Vendetta last week the day you posted Moscow swatches. I've worn it a couple of times since then and I am so in love with it.

    In fact, today when I got to work someone asked what color I was wearing, she thought it was OPI at first :) I am definitely planning on getting a backup and Django looks really nice too.

    The girl at the counter when I got Vendetta said that she thought it might become a regular color instead of a limited run, time will tell. It was also really fun to talk about Moscow with them because they had never heard of it hehe ;)

    I"m sorry to hear about people stealing your photos...It really sucks, but that's the reality of internet...I remember someone sent me an e-mail telling me that somebody esle is re-posting my articles...What a nerve!

  17. Hope you had a great Christmas! I usually tend to lean towards the lighter colors bit this looks really rich. I might have to pick up a bottle.

    @Susan Allison - I too am already missing the posts. Maybe I'm becoming a polish blog junkie. :)

    My Vendetta should be at my mailbox service right now. I won't be able to pick it up 'til Tuesday. I'll just look at your swatches until then. LOL.

    I got a bit of green for the holidays and on Friday I ordered a Konad kit! Yay! They are not shipping until January 5th.

  21. You beautiful nails.. do you have any tips on shaping nails.. like making them perfectly square or slightly close... the longer my middle finger it gets wider but shaping takes alot time.. any shortcuts? also do you have a youtube... you should totally do one.. you'll get so many hits... you should start with the basics of home manicure.. something we girls need help with.

  23. Is it just me, or does the color in that first picture look very much like Opi's Lincoln Park After Dark?

    That's pretty lame that people are stealing your pictures. It reminds me of a time an artist friend of mine had a drawing she'd scanned and posted taken by someone who claimed it as their own. When called on it, the other person basically said, "Nuh-UH! It's my original work, because I removed the hair."

  25. Vampy Kelly - Can't wait to see your swatches!! woo hoo!

    Sarah - Happy NY to you too! I am curious to see if Vendetta will be permanent. Blue Satin did from spring last year, so we shall see.

    John Ferris - Thank you and Happy New Year!

    Suzanne - I wonder why Chanel did not consult w/us when naming this polish LOL. Thank you and Happy New Year!

    Brooke - Thank you and Happy New Year!

    Julie - sorry we did not have time to do your nails. I'll definitely do them when you come to visit in Feb!

    Mimi - Thanks!! Gotta love the Internet though, right? Happy NY Sweetie :)

    Lina Elvira - Happy new nail polish year to you too!! :)

    Susan Allison - I'll be back in full force soon! Hope you had wonderful holidays too.

    Mackenzie - You are right, this color does look really rich on. Nothing wrong w/being a polish blog junkie LOL. Happy new year!

    Tarotbydiana - Ohh excited to hear what you think of the Konad when you get it! let me know!

    eye4style - Thanks!! Happy new year :)

    Jason - wearing it on my toes right now. go for it!

    scvprincez05 - thanks! I use a crystal file when shaping them and I really just try to file them almost in a straight line, I like them very square. I don't post on You Tube but I might start. I have lots of tips if you look through my archive - look at the tips and tricks tag.

    Evil O - this is more of a violet shade of purple and LP is more aubergine/eggplant purple. This looks a little darker too in my opinion. That is lame about your friend.

    Angeline - thank you and I am glad you enjoy my blog!

    Happy New Year everyone!

    Katee
