Yes, I did it again, I splurged on another highend priced polish. Chanel Fracas was just too beautiful to give it a pass ;-)!! And then it was payday so I sort of wiggled myself through all those excuses to give myself another treat ;-)

Isn't Fracas beautiful? The first pictures showed what Fracas looks in most lights. Application is so-so. I found the first coat prone to streaking and Fracas is not completely selflevelling. The consistency is creamy and dense. The second carefully applied coat evened out the patchiness. I don't wanna give a final judgement yet though, I will have to try it with different base coats to find out if the performance will differ. I used Essence XXL Nail Thickener as base coat and no Top Coat, it truly dries to this high shine :-)

Final thoughts: I am in love with this color - I would categorize it as coral leaning pink. After the first application I am a bit disappointed by the formula. I would expect such expensive polishes to apply smooth and effortless. But I will stall my final judgement for now until I wear it again using a different Base Coat.
Of course I would like to know what you think of Fracas :-)?
I bought Fracas with Globus.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
