Chanel Le Vernis Rouge Noir

So fancy!

Unless I suddenly won a million bucks, I didn't thought I would ever spend $25 on a nail polish. It's just so ridiculous to pay an exorbitant amount of money for something that would surely chip within a matter of days. But I saw this up for sale, and I fell for it hook, line and sinker.

It's not a straight dark red, it has a bit of a purple & brown undertone which, unfortunately, you could only see when you put your nails right in front of your face. From afar, it's just looks like any other dark red polish. Honestly, there's really nothing special to it, the brush & the staying power is quite mediocre. But knowing Uma Thurman wore this in Pulp Fiction is enough for me not to regret buying it!

Bad nail swatch (do a quick google search to see how it really looks like)

I'm not really sure if I want to spend another $25 on a nail polish but, I am thisclose to buying Black Pearl. Sigh, Chanel.

How much are you willing to spend on a nail polish?

  2. One of my dreams is actually to buy a Chanel nail polish but just to own one. I looove painting my nails but i think that there are amazing quality nail polish for much cheaper prices (specially in the US, in my country it's a little more difficult to find something good). I think that shade is gorgeous! I would also buy a color like this (or pink) because they're shades that never go out of style.

  3. You know, when it looks this good $25 is a sacrifice I am willing to make:) Love, Love, Love the color! I absolutely love your blog and now following! Maybe you'll have time to visit my blog:)


  4. @Yona: That was what I was thinkign when I bought this too! At least the shade is 'uniquely Chanel' & is really classy! Worth the money :) Then again, OPI (and even NYX Girls!) has better staying power (IMO) and more color!

    @Annabelle: I've followed you too!

  5. I love this colour! It looks so good on you too. I only own one Chanel polish too - Nouvelle Vague that my boyfriend bought for me. I feel weird spending that much money too!
