Chanel Gold Shimmer 179 swatches and comparisons - Chanel Saturday

Today it's a new Chanel Saturday together with my friend Elena from PicturedTinsel, and I chose to show Gold Shimmer, because when I bought it pre-owned, Elena said: “Yikes that is so ugly” :)
BUT my mission is to show swatches of as many Chanel polishes as possible, regardless if I like them all or not!
Chanel Gold Shimmer 179 – is from the Coromandel de Chanel coll., fall 2005.
It’s a pearly nude/red gold shimmer/metallic, prone to brush strokes. 
This is 2 coats, OK dry time, but I added a top coat too smooth out the brush strokes a bit.
I dag er det igen Chanel Saturday sammen med min veninde Elena fra PicturedTinsel, og jeg har valgt at vise Gold Shimmer, fordi da jeg havde købt den brugt, sagde Elena: ”Føj, den er så grim” :)
MEN min mission er at vise så mange Chanel lakker som muligt, selvom jeg ikke selv synes om dem alle!
Chanel Gold Shimmer 179 – er fra Coromandel de Chanel koll. fra efteråret 2005.
Det er en perlemor-pudder-rødguld farve med shimmer, der er svær at lægge uden penselstrøg. Dette er 2 lag, men jeg anvendte en toplak for at bedre lidt på strøgene fra penslen.
-and a comparison...
Golden Sand is a bit darker than Golden Shimmer and Métal Roux is a bit more golden
Is Gold Shimmer a hate or love color for you?
I wonder what Elena is showing us today, probably not Gold Shimmer ;)
Later today I have swatches of Chanel Suspicious, and tomorrow of Eastern and Western Light!

Er Gold Shimmer en farve du hader eller elsker?
Jeg gad nok vide hvad Elena viser os i dag, skal vi gætte på at der ikke er Gold Shimmer ;)
Senere i dag viser jeg swatches af Chanel Suspicious, og i morgen af Eastern and Western Light!

    1. It's a bit different for sure - and I know that you do not like gold polishes as such :)

  3. This is not my colour but it's not that ugly :)
    Have you try to contact chanel head quarter? Maybe they might know every info you need about their lacquers collections ^^

    1. I agree, not that ugly - and no I haven't, I have imagined that they are swimming in mails like that, but I have decided to give it a go sometime soon, but thanks for poking me, it might work :)

    1. Yayy, thank you so much C.M., I have now corrected that in the text above and in my Chanel List - the European version has white text the US black text, is that true...?

    2. no, on some american bottles following was printed:

      first line: 179
      second line: gold
      third line: shimmer

      I just bought such a bottle.
      when it arrives, I can take a picture.

    1. It definitely is a color that most either hate or love I think :)

  6. I know that you love Chanel but I don´t like this colour.... *lol*

    1. I know that you love Chanel too - it's not my favorite color either - fortunately there are colors for everyone :)

  7. Nice polishes. Golden Sand is my favourite.

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. Yes, I think of these 3, that is my favorite too :)

  8. This one is not for me :-) Surely I would be able to make some nail art manicure using it as a base, but I don't think I could wear it "alone" on my nails :-)

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. Neither could I, but it could be a great base for nail art...

      Slet
  9. I agree, this polish isn't my kind of polish :P it's kind of an awkward orangey-pink-copper color. Could be great for stamping or nail art though!

    1. Well, I'm happy to have this old lady in my collection - but she isn't my favorite for sure :)

  10. Beautiful! I feel like I can't pull off these kinds of polishes very well, but I still enjoy their beauty! :D

    SvarSlet
    Svar
    1. It can be a bit difficult to pull off, I agree :)

      Slet
  11. It isn't my color but it looks good on you..

    1. I think I have to agree, even if it isn't really my color either ;)
