Ahh, drool! Chanel always comes up with the most beautiful dark nail polish colors. To me, this is like the purple cousin of Blue Satin in terms of tone and pearliness. Vendetta is a gorgeous dark, deep purple with glorious pearl and depth to it. It reminds me a bit of Metallic Vamp (not sure if they still make that color) -- except, to my memory, Metalic Vamp was more true purple, which Vendetta is more complex. This is a true love!
Just picked up mine! Awesome Colour! Purple is so hot. Also can't comment on durability, but I've never met a chanel NP that I didn't love. Will update review on lasting power.
UPDATE: Awesome staying power, no chips a week later, love the colour. Its also fabulous under one of the Sally Hansen Fire Opals.
This is from the spring 2009 collection. It is a gorgeous deep purple, almost black, vamp. It has a gorgeous blue shimmer to it which adds depth to colour and really makes it come alive in sunlight. As with all chanel nail polishes the pigmentation is incredible, you could get away with one coat but I find 2 coats = pefection, it applies smoothly and evenly and is very glossy. I haven't had it on long enough to comment on durability.
