As you all know, I love a good Chanel nail polish look for less, so I couldn’t help but to dupe their beautiful Mimosa – a yellow creme with a barely there silverish yellow micro-shimmer from their Summer 2011 Le Vernis collection. It helps that my good friend Jessica is a HUGE fan of Chanel nail polish, so she’s my go-to girl when I need to borrow a polish to dupe.

I found two “look for less” colors, and one of them is perfect! Revlon’s Electric may as well have been bottled at the Chanel factory because there is absolutely no difference between it and Mimosa – the hue, saturation, and brightness are exactly the same. The primary difference is application, which you don’t notice in the finished look, but the Revlon went on so much better than Chanel’s Mimosa. I’ve used three Chanel polishes to date and they are all streaky and a bit goopey (at $27 a bottle!!!). I have to keep layering the polish until it is completely opaque to hide the streaks. With that said, when I painted my right hand to complete my manicure for the week, I opted for Revlon’s Electric over the Chanel lol.

Sally Hansen’s Lightening is a close runner up if you already have it on hand – the difference is that it’s slightly darker yellow and has no shimmer.

So what do you think of this Chanel Mimosa look for less? Is this a color you would try?
