The photos were taken and comparison swatches were done but it took sometime until I made it to this post, partly because I was interrupted with Chanel summer candies. The last piece from Avant Premiere de Chanel collection could still not be skipped. After Le Vernis 581 Cinema and 579 Paparazzi, today I would like to present you 575 Starlet, Chanel describes it as a peachy pink but I like calling it a low-key coral. I got used to making up a story about the polish to be compared, but you may skip this part and just check the photos, the captions and final thoughts if you wish. Once upon a time...
Starlet, Searching for the Perfect Peach
...there was a worm. An ugly white worm. They told her she would grow to be a beautiful butterfly with iridescent wings and a crown of a princess, but for this to happen, she had to find the perfect peach to eat. She packed her things and started crawling up the peach tree, slowly but determined.

As she reached the top, she looked down to enjoy the beautiful view. All those years of living in the meadow was over. A light breeze was blowing towards her tiny body. She grabbed the tree trunk not to fall. Slowly moving to a branch she had chosen, she had seen all the beautiful peaches, all full of meat and their small hair shining under the sun. Oh how delicious they looked...
She first got her eyes on Ming, which was way too pink for her taste, sun must have not touched this one. She had seen Biarritz and Orange Blosson but they were almost looking like sour oranges. She grimaced as she turned her head and her eyes met Peche Nacree, such a beautiful name. She wished that it wouldn't be so pale. Then it was English Rose and Paparazzi, but find them to be a tad more pink than she would like.

India was gorgeous, but was it going bad with this brownish hue? Bikini and Miami Peach were almost unreal, they were bright, Miami Peach has gorgeous golden sparkle to it. Could they be the perfect peach?
She was about the decide between these two but suddenly Starlet caught her attention. Its lovely tone, subtle pink shimmering skin, she drooled and she knew this was her peach. Slowly crawled over Starlet and took a bite. It was the most delicious food she had ever eaten in her whole worm life. Soon enough no one could see her anymore. She was lost in the deep peachy flesh, enjoying her new home.
Final Thoughts: Chanel Le Vernis 575 Starlet is an understated coral with secret pink shimmer, you could call it a nude coral if this makes sense. It couldn't find a matching shade in my stash, but the base colors of 208 Paparazzi and 205 English Rose are close. Starlet is undoubtedly my favorite from three new Chanel releases in Avant Premiere de Chanel collection, too bad that it is also the only on which is limited edition.
Did you purchase Starlet? Do you like this color for spring and summer or do you find it to be a rather Fall shade? What is your favorite nail polish from Avant Premiere de Chanel?
