In 2021, Chanel came up with two gorgeous nail polishes: 895 Sunlight and 897 Golden Sand. Cool and warm shades. Let’s see which one is going to be my favorite one!
Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish 895 Sunlight is a cool-toned shimmery beige color. At first, I hesitated to buy it because a shimmery nude nail polish may look outdated. But when I applied it, I changed my mind about it. Chanel Nail Polish 895 Sunlight is absolutely stunning!
Chanel Nail Polish 895 Sunlight is a type of shimmery nail polish that is hard to apply. You have to get exactly the right amount: too little would require extra swipes and too much would look bulky. Then you have to stretch the product throughout your nail with one perfect swipe and do a couple ‘perfect’ swipes on the sides. Everything should be done very quickly. Otherwise, Chanel Nail Polish 895 Sunlight would produce weird lines or even bubbles.
Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish 897 Golden Sand is a warm shimmery light brown color. This shade looks very original to me because it’s in the middle between gold and brown.
Once again, Chanel Nail Polish 897 Golden Sand is not easy to apply because of its extensive shimmer. Please scroll up to read my advice on the application.
My verdict is: I would keep both nail polishes. Chanel Nail Polish 895 Sunlight is a versatile everyday nude. Meanwhile, Chanel Nail Polish 897 Golden Sand would look amazing with warm brown eye makeup and warm brown outfits. The only problem is that both nail polishes are not long-lasting as stated. Maybe a nail base and a top coat would fix that.
