The polish is a "Velvet" and it dries to a matte, rubbery looking finish. I like the color on my skin tone a lot but I'm not thrilled with the rubber look. I'll probably wear a shiny top coat over it! The rose polish is a gorgeous color but very sheer. I may try layering that over Pink Rubber.

    In fact, it's Velvet. And the Pink looks really more a top coat than a proper polish. Strange choice

    Yes, I have Titanium Smoke. I don't reach for it often so this is a skip for me.

    The darker pink one looks very sheer. I think I'm going to skip. The more I look at what I have to use already, the more I want something truly special to splurge on. Waiting for all the holiday collections to show up.

    Sounds like it lol. I can't believe it. But you like the shade. Well, let me know if you like it after the rose top coat.

    Hugs to you too! Hold out for the blush.....

    I decided to do one thumb with just PR and the other with Hyperrose Glass over PR for the fun of it. First, I have to say PR is really not very attractive looking if you have any ridges in your nails. I did not use a ridge filler or any other base since I was just playing around but I often don't so I can tell that the finish of PR highlights ridges way more than your average polish.

    Then, Hyperrose Glass over PR...meh. Maybe it would look nice over a darker pink.

    Bottom line, I can't recommend either polish.

    Pic of hyperfresh from cluelessssss back in July. We might have a long wait for swatches because it seems to be gone for now and I just noticed this on Chanel.com

    Collection Libre is now available in limited quanitites on chanel.com before it becomes available to the public in late October.

    Chanel is crazy



    Seriously, it CAN'T BE.


    Skipping the Holiday, the Xmas Collection ... It's a commercial suicide, especially compared to the beauties coming from other high end brands.

    No good at all.
