I’ve been dying to try out Tenderly from Chanel‘s spring polish collection! I received it last week, and was literally thinking about it all weekend. After swatching the shade I knew I had to add some Chanel “C”‘s.

Tenderly is unusual (in a good way!) and is a nice switch up from the usual spring brights and pastels. I would describe it as a dusty plum, or a purple with a hint of taupe. I’m currently writing this as I sit in the dark and it looks grey. I love polishes like this! Depending on the light it looks more purple or more taupe.

It is a nice cream polish and really easy to apply. For this design, I used two coats and it was perfectly opaque.

Every time I post about a high end polish, I always get a few comments about the price. Chanel Le Vernis runs $27 for a bottle. Personally, I love how luxurious it is. The packaging is gorgeous, its great quality, and who doesn’t love Chanel? If you’re an avid polish collector like I am, Chanel polishes are something I really love in my collection!

Now, on to the nail art! For all my nails except my ring finger, I painted a dotted quilt pattern with OFAT Blanco

To start, make sure your base color is dry to the touch. If it is freshly painted, the dotting tool will dent it! I used cheap dotting tools I found at a local nail supply shop, but you can definitely use tools around the house! Bobby pins, pencils, toothpicks…so many possibilities. This design is great for a beginner…and you also don’t need anything fancy to do it with!

Start by painting a line of dots equally spaced. Then, dot on more perpendicular to the first line. For this design, I spaced the lines one dot apart. When you get to an intersecting dot, use a larger dotter!

For my ring finger, I painted the C’s. I used one of my go-to nail art brushes – the Orly Detailer Brush. I prefer this one for painting small details because its shorter. I save the longer brushes for lines.

Funny story…I originally wanted just one in the center of my nail, and completely made it off center by accident. Since I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to redo the whole nail I turned it into a pattern! I actually prefer how it turned out.
