This beautiful nude from Chanel’s 2014 Fall Collection has been my recent nail polish obsession. I’ve been wearing it constantly since I bought it ten days ago. I’m totally in love with the shade and how soft and sophisticated it looks on the nails.
Secret is a perfect mix of a very pale peach and pink. The formula could be better, but it’s not hard to work with. I need two thick coats or three thin coats for full coverage. It doesn’t apply streaky and there are no issues with tiny bubbles I sometimes experience with Chanel’s formula.
Swatches are taken in daylight, with three coats applied.
From the same collection I also picked up Atmosphere, but that one ended up being a disappointment. It’s lovely on a direct sunlight, but in any other light condition the finish does not look anything special. The colour blends with my skin tone making the shade look unflattering on my nails. It has a nice formula, and one coat over any other nail polish is enough. If you want to use it on its own you will need two or three coats to get a nice coverage.
Below are the swatches taken in sunlight — one coat of Atmosphere over two coats of Secret.
