Duo-chrome nail colors have become so popular that different brands rival each other in their quest to win the hearts of consumers. Chanel Fall-Winter 2014 Nail Color collection includes three amazing colors: Secret (625), Orage (631) and the breath-taking duo-chrome Atmosphere (629). Described as "iridescent pearl" the Atmosphere (629) Le Vernis Nail Colour comes in a signature Chanel 0.40 fl. oz. bottle with a black cap. I think, this nail color is perfect for any season, but will definitely complement any holiday outfit thanks to the versatility of its shade. It can be worn on its own, where two coats are sufficient but three coats would look perfect. Or, you can layer it over almost any of your favorite nail polishes for a unique duo-chrome effect. The semi-sheer, pearly texture of Atmosphere (629) shifts from a pearly gold to light pink and then even to a murky green, a very unusual combination of colors within one nail polish. Although, Chanel Atmosphere (629) can make a perfect statement on its own, I think it works very similar to Mac Nail Transformation Top Coats, adding dimension and duo chrome effects if layered over other nail polishes. The matching lip product from the Chanel collection is Songe (191) Glossimer (Lip Gloss) that has exactly the same shade, which looks beautiful on its own and is sheer enough to be layer over other lipsticks.
Chanel Atmosphere (629) is an amazing nail polish that has already become one of my favorite ones. I love its classy pearly and at the same time trendy metallic finish, its smooth even coverage that requires only two coats to look its best with only minimal brush strokes that could be slightly recognizable. I tried layering Atmosphere (629) over cream colors by Butter London and Zoya and was impressed the way it transformed these colors by adding depth, dimension and slightly dimming the shades down. I did not try Atmosphere (629) over shimmer nail polishes, because in my opinion, it would be a slight overkill, however, if you’ve done so already and had a successful experience of applying Atmosphere (629) over shimmer nail polishes, please let me know. Although there are many nail polishes that other bloggers quote as Atmosphere (629) dupes, I really think, that most of them similar to Atmosphere (629) simply because they are also duo-chrome nail colors. The one color that I do think is very close in shade to Atmosphere (629) is Chanel Metal Argent (96), which is hardly available anymore. Overall, I am very happy with this nail color and am sure I will enjoy using it till the last drop.
