Chanel Sugar Gloss 173 and Abricot Gloss 175, 2005 - Collaboration Saturday

It's time for a new Collaboration Saturday together with my friend Elena from PicturedTinsel!

Chanel Sugar Gloss 173 and Abricot Gloss 175 were released for summer 2005. They are what suddenly became a novelty in the polish world in 2014: Tints – BUT these are 9 years older, and I have some that are even older – so this is another good example of how often Chanel have been trend creators.
You can use them on their own as a discrete fresh-up of the nail in one coat, or more – or you can use them as tints over another polish, preferably white.
But I don’t have ridges and slightly stained nails, so for me they are best over white. On my index I’m showing 3 coats of Sugar Gloss and on my middle finger 3 coats of Abricot Gloss – no top coat. On my ring finger and pinky I used them as tints over white, and I also used a black striper and top coat on these two fingers.
So - isn't it fun to think that Chanel made tints looong before it became "in"?
I wonder what Elena  has for us today, shall we have a look?

  1. I'm not sure, but I think that 'my little Lancôme sheer tint' with bubble gum scent might be even older ;o). May be...

    Kind regards,
    Elena

    1. Maybe it is - but as I wrote I also have older tints from Chanel, some older than 2002, but exactly how old, I don't know!

    2. I just researched: those juicy vernis for sure are from 2004 or older :o).

      Kind regards,
      Elena

  2. Yeah, definitely trend setters, the Chanel brand. I've discovered lately that the Tints do great things when layered on a silver holo! Have you tried it?

    1. They are indeed!
      Wow, that sounds interesting, I'll have to try that one day, thanks for sharing!!!

    2. I'll post a silver holo painted in tints soon so you'll be able to see :)

  3. finally some nail art, we haven't seen that here for too long :D
    i really don't like these polishes, they look like waste of time to me... but love what you did with them :D
    how would told that the chanel has done it 9 years before opi ;)

    1. You are right about the nail art :)
      Waste of time is a harsh remark - to me it's a piece of nail polish history, but I guess you also think that the OPI's are a waste of time then?

      Slet
    2. maybe it sounds harsh, but i really don't like this kind of polishes... and you know what, i'm super happy that they are actually some polishes that i don't like or want ;)

      Slet
    3. That can indeed have it's advantages :)

  4. Your nail art looks great! I really have to try something like this with the sheer polishes I have :)

    1. Thank you so much - yes, it's quite fun to play with :)

  5. These look really good :-) Wow ahead of their time for sure ;-)

    I've got the OPI Tints but as I don't do nail art, I'm struggling with ideas of what to do with them! Lol one day! ;-)

    1. LOL - this is easy, just use the bottle brush and dab it on the white nail. You don't need the black stripes, you can just let the colors blend....

  6. That Apricot does look rather nice

    SvarSlet
  7. This whole mani looks really fun. Both colours work well together and that nail art is fitting the product.

  8. What a pretty fruity nail art! Kisses

  9. Not sure if I like the glossy polishes, not really my thing I believe! But Maria, your nail art is great, looks so artsy! Please do more often!

    1. LOL - thanks a lot - well I need to get back in track, I suspect I will one day!

  10. Lovely manicure! :-) Tint nail polishes are perfect for "filling" some small spaces after you've done black stamping on white nails :-) That's exactly what you've done, the only difference is that you used "hand-made stamping" :-)

    1. I don't believe in narrowing down the use of any material into just one thing, I can think of a lot of other ways to use tints :)
      But yes - I used a black striper...

      Slet
  11. I love the nail art! Abstract and pretty! The tinted polishes have a nice squishy look when worn on their own.

    1. Thank you so much Julia :) Yes, you are so right, squishy and also somewhat juicy/fruity :)

  12. I have some Maybelline tints from before 2000.
    I found that around 1998/99 a lot of brands came out with transparent colours: eg Maybelline, Pupa here in Italy, of course Chanel with the "Cristallin" collection, and possibly many others :)

    1. Thank you SO much for this information, that's very useful!
