Chanel Pulsion for Pink Wednesdays

This polish was Chanel’s Holiday 2010 offering – it’s a very bright, almost purple-leaning pink.  I picked it up from Nordstrom’s not that long ago when I was longing for bright, summery colors.

Last winter I just couldn’t focus on this color-I was too busy putting China Glaze’s Party Hearty over everything, and it seemed like a funny color to buy at Christmas time.  But when I saw that it was still available this spring, I suddenly felt like it made sense.  It’s brighter than it looks in my pictures, so it’s perfect for summer, almost a screaming pink.

Pulsion applied well and took only two coats to be opaque, like a typical Chanel creme.  It has a raspberry toned, deeper pink color than most other brights we’re seeing now.  Most of the brights from this summer are very orangey or coral, or at least a brighter pink.  So Pulsion seems darker and a bit exotic to me in comparison.  It also kind of reminds me of a Kool-Aid color-it has that oddly saturated, artificial fruit look.

This is the first time I’ve managed to post a pink polish for the blogger On Wednesdays We Wear Pink thing.  Success!  I like pinks but I hadn’t been able to get my pink posts to sync to a Wednesday before.  I think this is kind of a nice pink to start things off.  It’s certainly emphatic.

Pulsion is still up on the Nordstrom’s website, so if you’re suddenly having a change of heart you could still snag it, especially with the Anniversary Sale coming up.  It’s been gone from the Chanel website for a while now.
