Very pretty in the bottle but looks flat and almost black on. If you are looking for a beautiful dark dark navy try OPI Yoga ta get this blue!!! Now that's is stunning and much cheaper!

(i) Colour more impressive in bottle than upon application. In bottle: multidimensional. Upon application: flat, verging on black.
(ii) Revision to brush design would improve ease of application.
(iii) Drying time prohibitive.

A real stunner. I have been searching for a blue polish for months now, always with my eye upon Blue Satin, but hoping to find a reasonable duplicate in OPI, Essie, and so on. There is no substitute for Blue Satin. I've read here that some regard it as a cream, but I disagree. It is not a simple blue cream, but a rich sapphire blue with microshimmer to it. The microshimmer is just that, it does not transform the color into a traditional shimmer, but a beautiful, sparkling gem. The packaging is sublime, worthy of display upon any dressing table. Not at all juvenile, but sophisticated enough to wear in any environment. One coat is enough, but two coats reveals a deep, midnight sky full of stars. Well worth the price, I would certainly repurchase.

While the formulation was the same as always, the color wasn't to my liking. I didn't see any shimmer AT ALL. I just saw a creamy blue color. I ended up having to do a personalized mix job with some Zoya Trixie in order to get the look I was going for. That would be fine if this were a $3 dollar bottle of polish, but for what Chanel charges.....NO. This reminds of the experiences I've been having with their makeup lately....it's like the best part is the name....the product falls short. I really hope the polish don't begin to disappoint too.

I adore this product....in the bottle! On my fingers, not so much. In the bottle it is a beautiful blue shimmer almost duo-chrome color. On my fingers? A dark matte midnight blue. I do not see the shimmer in any light. If I had wanted a true cream polish I would have bought one. Very disappointed.

The color is gorgeous, no doubt, but for the price the formula here is problematic for me. I found that Blue Satin likes to stain my cuticles unlike any other polish I've used and applies unevenly for me in a way that really contrasts some of my other Chanel shades (Riviera, Graphite). I love the look of it when I can manage to get it applied right, but sometimes the fuss keeps me from wanting to use it. Definitely a nice shade to own, but not a necessity if you're not crazy about the color.

This one converted me into blue nail polish. It's as far from juvenile as possible. In fact it's elegant, ladylike, slightly severe and very proper looking. I don't understand that anybody can mistake it for black. No matter how dark a room I'm in, it's clearly blue - a deep, dark midnight blue, but a blue nevertheless. The color has a slight pearly surface with minimal shimmer which is a part of it's elegance. It's easy to apply and lasts well. I have bought several blues since this one, but it'll always be my favorite.

Such an evil color, great if you want the dark look but its even better because black is so common the dark blue is a cute subtle surprise. Total classic.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
Really like this. The color is amazing, very unique, very dark without being black.
And the application... OMG. So creamy and opaque, you'd be good to go with just one coat. Also dries super fast!

This is love at the first sight! I'm normally not an adventurous person, I tend to play safe, but this colour is so classic, so chic, so sophisticated that I must have it! It's not emo punk kids blue (which I once was), it's 40's, it has so much character, you know, those femme fatale movies... It matches my skin tone very well, it brightens my hands, makes my hands looking very pale. People always want to ask me what colour this is and from which brand... I always tell them it's Chanel. :)

I really love my dark polishes and couldn't wait to try this back in 2007. I have said it before and i'll say it again, In my experience with Chanel colour cosmetics, i feel it's all about the packaging and less about the product. Unless you wave your hands around the train station, screaming "YES, IT'S CHANNEL, DON'T YOU KNOW?", there isn't really much point.
For me, their polishes are below par and just don't see the sense in buying them. This chipped so quickly and the colour? There was very little blue indeed. It makes a nice change from flat black but there was such a buzz about this at the time and i doubt it would have been quite so intense if Nails Inc had released it. Sorry Chanel, you failed me once again!

This is the one that has managed to push the Rouge Noir from the number one place of my favorite nail varnishes, which had been mission impossible for years before. The two share high saturation and richness of color, but Blue Satin is younger and edgier. At the same time, it manages to stay bizzarly elegant and it works great even in the most formal occassions- it even seems to instantly "lift up" an outfit.
I would strongly suggest to use it with Chanel Laque Reflet Immediat top coat in Natural, for it will make it dry in minutes and make it last for a week without chipping. It also subtly accentuates the barely-there shimmer.
The color is so great and saturated that sometimes I use only one coat - it makes the blue undertones stand out more, without any visible streaking (and I am not very patient and precise in application).
However, to make the most of this color, one should have a defined personal style- this is not the most flattering varnish for too casual and careless dressers.

The only reason I would not buy this product again is because I have grown tired of the color. But that's just a personal preference and in no way factors into the quality of this product - which is amazing. It's so difficult to find shades that have such depth rather that it being just one flat color. Blue Satin gives off so many subtle beautiful shades depending on the light you're in. It's the best color for having that moody dark hue on your nails but not going black, which I think just doesn't look good. The formula for the polish is also great, it's smooth, milky and doesn't bubble or go on so thickly. The polish is also very long lasting and withstands minor chips and scratches. Go, Chanel!

Beautiful dark blue color, however I found the 'subtle' shimmer to be a little too subtle. Don't get me wrong, I don't like too much glitter, but for the expensive price, you only a block dark blue colour for 80% of the time. For this reason, I wouldn't buy this again. I also found that this polish takes forever to dry, however once it does it stays put. If you can afford it, go for it. If not, it's not really worth it, and I would find a cheaper alternative.

I love this color. It's dark but also very rich at the same time. The only thing I find negative is that it doesn't show that much hint of blue, which would be even prettier imho. Other than that this is a great polish and a musthave in every collection!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
that's the first dark nail polish that i've owned and let me tell u that it's just the beginning! i fell in love with it. i wore it on my nails for about 2 months straight! my nails feel naked without it. i think that you should find your way to apply it and ALWAYS put on 2 coats and i won't chip for at least a week
Update: No more Chanel nail polishes for me because they totally ruined my nails (and the same happened to my mom). I switched to Dior polishes and my nails are grateful.

Blue Satin is quite possibly, one of the best rich blues ever. While I have tons of blues and love them on toes, this one is just different enough and stunning enough that I had to add this to my stash. This is a rich sultry deep sapphire blue with sort of a glowy shimmer but isn't "frosty" .... it just sort of *glows*. Gorgeous on toes, and pretty on tips as well when I'm feeling more brave. Applies beautifully, zero streaking, wears exceptionally well. I hate Chanel prices, but this one is definitely a huge winner for me!!

I have cool-toned skin and this color looks absolutely gorgeous on my nails. I hesitated at first to buy it because I thought I was too old, but my teenaged daughter convinced me, and I am glad that I bought it. I've been through a lot of nail polishes (Joan Rivers, OPI, Lippmann -- the worst --, Sephora, MAC, Cover Girl). Chanel is the best. Expensive, yes, but worth it. I work with my hands so I usually get 3 or 4 days from an application before chips start (a week's wear at most), but my nails look feminine, polished, classy. I would buy this color again, but because the packaging is so superior, I doubt it will dry out, and I secure my Chanel polishes in a special little box in a small dresser drawer, almost like some gems.

I adore Chanel Blue satin nail polish. I bought the bottle at Dillards at the Chanel counter (they were almost sold out) after lusting after the nail polish for a while. I normally find $23 to be a bit expensive for nail polish, but this polish is worth every penny. I adore the blue black shade. The shimmer is almost non-existent. This polish goes on pretty thick and I didn't even need to do a second coat. I really like Chanel Blue Satin on my short nails on my hands, but not necessarily on my hands and toes at the same time. I would definitely purchase this nail polish again if and when I run out, but I have a feeling this bottle will last a long time considering a little bit goes a long way.

This a gorgeous deep blue which is fab on toes and great in winter. The quality is good and the packaging is great. I'm not crazy about the brush - it's not fantastic but I've gotten used to it.
