Hey nail fanatics! How’s your Thursday going? It’s another overcast day here in LA – June Gloom is in full effect – which means crappy weather for photographing. So instead I went through my photos to find a mani I haven’t shown you yet!
Today I have for you Chanel Rose Cache. This is a sheer, nude colored polish with a pretty light pink shimmer. Normally I don’t go for these nude colors at all, but this past winter I was in a nail polish exchange on one of my favorite forums and saw this polish; at the same time I was getting ready for grad school interviews and new I didn’t have anything conservative in my collection, so I grabbed this one up. I’m so happy I did! It’s a great neutral-but-not-boring polish. This is 3 coats of Rose Cache.
Here’s a shot in direct sunlight….

I really like Rose Cache, but I also really dis-like visible nail line, which still shows through after 3 coats. I’d heard that Dior Incognito, released in the Spring 2012 Color Block collection, had a similar base color as Rose Cache without the shimmer, so I picked up a bottle. I’ll photograph a comparison of the two soon for you! Either way, I’m holding on to Rose Cache for now; it’s not an instant love, but it’s a strong like, and maybe I’ll give it another chance…
Rose Cache was released in December 2011 and is currently available online at Chanel and at my favorite department store, Nordstrom. Each polish retails for $26 for a 0.5 fl oz bottle.
Make it a great day!
