ok chanel vamps - I have a question for you that I am asking actually for my mom. We both love chanel's colors, but there are some colors that chip on my mom's nails (i have acrylic overlays so don't have that problem). anyway, it's the stranges:confused1:t thing - the light shades always seem to peel and chip on her nails, while the darker colors don't. Does anyone have a simple answer/solution? I suggested base coat but she says it still is a problem. then i was thinking that perhaps it was a chemical compound or something?

I have the same problem, the light colours always seem to chip and the dark ones stay on forever!

This happens to me too! I can never wear Chanel light np colors!

White satin, pink satin, rose satin, etc...all chip so fast! My more pigmented colors stay on forever!

Apparently I'm odd man out, since I haven't noticed the light colored polishes chipping on me more than the darker ones. Maybe it has something to do with the base and top coat I use? :confused1:

No, no, I mean that they chip at the same rate on me. The lighter never chipped faster (sorry if I wasn't clear).

Same deal.....the light colors never stay on.....I feel like its a waste of the $$ b/c a drugstore pink (similar shade to the chanel) stays on FOREVER until I literally have to take it off
