The Digit-al Dozen does Whimsy - Day 2 - Dandelion Clock Pond Mani with Chanel Sunrise Trip

Hi everyone! It's Day 2 of Digit-al Dozen Whimsy week and today I've done a pond mani! 

My husband recently gave me Chanel Sunrise Trip as a gift and I couldn't wait to try it out! This beauty is a 'nail gloss' as Chanel calls it from their LA Sunrise collection for Spring. It is a rich purple jelly with a very shiny finish. I like that Chanel are branching out a little and doing finishes like this and it is unique in my Chanel polishes for sure!

I felt compelled to try it out for a pond mani. Dandelion clocks are a very whimsy design to me so that's what I chose to stamp. I started off with a thin coat of Sunrise Trip. Unfortunately, unlike most Chanels I have tried, the formula wasn't amazing on this one. It was a little bit thick and hard to apply smoothly. My brush seems a little wonky too but that's another issue. I didn't have too much trouble but I may have to eventually add some thinner to this one to make it a bit easier to use. At least the colour is great! 

After the first coat of Sunrise Trip, I added some stamping using the Nailz Craze NC01 plate and Barry M Foil Effects polish in Silver (319). I then added another coat of Sunrise Trip then stamped again.

I finished everything off with a coat of topcoat as usual. However, adding topcoat made the purple tint my top layer of stamping so instead of being bright silver, it went more purple, like another pond mani layer. It is a little more discreet than intended but I really liked the result and decided to leave it that way. But at least I know now for next time I wear Sunrise Trip! 

What do you think of this mani? Did you pick up this polish? If so, I'd love to hear what you thought of it!

  2. Beautiful mani/design! I like how the top coat tinted the silver - gave it much more depth and dimension.

  3. These are really cute! Kind of a bummer that the Chanel polish was a little difficult to work with though /:

  4. I have Sunrise Trip and it's a pain to work with. And all the Chanel brushes recently have been awful - they've changed them. They used to be fantastic and now they are terrible. Such a shame as it's put me off buying them.
