This color reminds me of the red dress Scarlett O'Hara was forced to wear to go see Ashley Wilkes' birthday party. Subtle it is not, but it's also not over the top, but simply luscious! A bit more sparkle is in this formula compared to other Chanel shades, but I think this is a perfect color for fall or winter or anytime you want to make a strong statement. It's a beautiful …Read more

Though it is pleasant to see the swell square Chanel bottle, that isn't what I'm wearing around all week, so being charmed into loving anything Chanel because "it must be good it's Chanel" (or ysl or...) isn't my thing, thankfully. That said, I do love many of the Chanel polishes and this one gets a special wow from me whenever I wear it.

First, re: the …

This is my second bottle of Chanel nail polish. Likewise, I dislike the formula of Chanel nail polishes but the color is a very mature berry red with gold shine.

I am a huge fan of this color, and I am generally an outspoken hater of pink. Gondola is a fabulous, sparkly magenta with tiny bits of gold and red that keep this from being a generic magenta shimmer that I would absolutely hate.

At $23, this is definitely not cheap...The packaging is gorgeous, of course, but this polish would have never made it into my house if it wasn't a part …

You need several coats of this and it's on the pricey side.

I absolutely love this color! Very pretty on the nails and toes. It doesn't chip nearly as quick as other brands I have tried. Chanel and OPI have the best polishes around.

This is an excellent fall color. It looks like a cross between claret wine and hint of garnet. I only have to apply one coat, and the finish is quite glossy so there's no need to use a topcoat. I've found that Chanel Le Vernis lasts quite awhile without chipping, so it has become my top choice for polishes.

A beautiful color: a dark, plummy red with red shimmer. Applies very well, opaque in two coats. But as with most (all?) of my Chanel polishes this one also chips so fast! It's annoying because they make such interesting colors.

edit: using a chanel basecoat for a chanel polish seems to be the key to a longer lasting manicure!

absolutely gorgeous polish. it's so sophisticated. it's a plummy color with shimmer - but not too much shimmer - just enough to make it unusual and beautiful but not over-board. It applies very well - only need 2 coats for it to be perfect. I'm so glad I swapped for this! if you can swap for this or buy it on Ebay I suggest you do it - it's gorgeous and unusual :)

i like the color on the nail (dark pink/red with soft shimmer) but i L*O*V*E the color in the bottle (dark pink/red with bright pink flash with much brighter pink and gold sparkle).
the quality and pigmentation is good and i don't have problem with Chanel polishes chipping like other reviewers often seem to (maybe expectations are higher than normal bc of Chanel's price tag?) …
