This review is for Chanel Nail Polishes as a whole. I've worn Chanel Polish for many years now, and have quite a large collection. In fact, the only polish I use is either Chanel or YSL. Chanel's colors are unrivaled, and stand out from the cheaper brands with their amazing and often unique colors. Sure, knockoffs abound. But the formula, rich deep colors, and quality of the polish is unrivaled.
This was my very first time buying a Chanel product, and it surely won’t be the last! For years, I’d been hearing about how wonderful their nail polish was, and I thought I would try it for myself. I purchased Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour 455-Lotus Rouge, which is a beautiful, rich, deep red. The formula glided across my nails smoothly and evenly with no streaking. The color looked so good that I only used one coat because there was no need for second unlike some of the drugstore brands. I absolutely love red polish and Lotus Rouge is my new favorite!
Yes, it smells nail-polishy, but for those of us, like me, who haven't been able to wear nail polish, this product is a winner. I purchased the limited edition color Skyline, a blue gray metallic. It goes on evenly and dries super fast. I also purchased the base and gloss products as well. I was amazed how easily this product applied. I definitely recommend Chanel polish.
This review is for Chanel polish Tentation. This is one of the few Chanel polishes that shows shimmer in the bottle and on the nail. It is a blue-tone red on me. I am planning to wear this around the Christmas holidays as my red. Love the color. It looks good if you have fair/medium skin with yellow undertones, which is my skin tone. I would recommend this polish for summer and holidays. It hold up well with some tip wear on the 6th day. I use my hands a lot at work so I was surprised it wore so well. It is also fast drying.
(Black) Its is really easy to use, not sticky, and you get a nice and even surface. It lasts over a week (base coat, 2 coats chanel, top coat). I think its a little expensive, you can find much cheaper brands with the same/almost the same quality, but it feels really luxurious and if you want to spend a little extra, this is definitively worth it. x
Expensive maybe but worth every penny. It does not discolour your nails and the colour goes on very smoothly. It dries fast but you need to put at least two coats for good colour as it's quite thin. Quite honestly I may like the Revlon nail polish slightly better for consistency but Chanel has way better colours.
HORRIBLE. Cannot express my dissatisfaction with this product enough! It completely ruined my nails. I've never had nail problems, in fact very little chipping or maintenance. I'm the girl who can grow them out to look like fake nails with no problem. This, made my gorgeous nails peel, chip, flake and look horrible. I thought it was just a bad bottle- It wasn't considering all 3 I own do this to me. OPI & Essie are a million times better. Chanel needs to stick to perfume and purses!
Hands down the best nail polish I have ever tried! Before I discovered Chanel Nail Color I wasn't much into varnish. Any brand I tried chipped so quickly I didn't see the point of all that work painting my nails for it to last 2 days. Chanel however goes on like a dream and requires little effort to get that professional manicure look. With base coat and top coat it lasts almost two weeks for me. It only starts to chip after maybe 10-11 days and its usualy minimal and not visible. Its price yes but when you consider how long it lasts in my opinion it works out the same price than if you bought OPI. The less time you have to spend doing your manicure and how much better it looks is really value for money.
My first Chanel nail polish purchase and I picked a great one: #543 Frisson. Frisson is a pale shimmery pink coral that to me, would look good on anyone. It reminds me of NARS Orgasm blush, a universal favorite that looks great applied with a light hand or layered. I am middeleaged and overweight and my hands are not as pretty as they were in my 20's, so I'm self conscious about using color on my nails, but this shade made me feel pretty.
Only reason I gave it four instead of five lippies is that the formula is rather thin, like many high end polishes, and it's sheer to begin with, so to really see the color you have to do at least four coats.
This was my first Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour purchase. I love the color (549 Distraction) and the packaging. The consistency on application is great; two thin coats always provides a smooth, even finish. However, the polish does not wear well and consistently chips in less than 24 hours.
