Chanel LE VERNIS Longwear Nail Colour
and LE GEL COAT Longwear Top Coat
I was so excited to test and swatch the newest collection from Chanel, LE VERNIS Longwear Nail Colour. The colors have been reformulated for a longer lasting, high-shine, 5-free and newly enriched with Bioceramics and Ceramides. I’m impressed by all the colors in the reformulated collection. The new formula is creamy and highly pigmented. I love the amount of full coverage most these shades give after just one coat and the amount of shine with the Le Gel Coat top coat.
After using the product I noticed my manicure lasted longer with the new LE GEL COAT Top Coat. I’m happy to report there were no chips and only a slight amount of tip wear after just 5 days! I wanted to mention that everyone thought I had gels on, that’s how amazing the shine is with the new LE GEL COAT! I described in my previous post that the Top Coat is activated by natural light that bonds to the nail color for flexibility, strength and unprecedented wear. Therefore, Chanel says there’s no need for a UV lamp to end up with a glossy gel-like finish and I agree! The top coat is thicker and you may need to go back to your bottle once more for product to cover your entire nail. I’ve had many people ask me if it’s a fast drying top coat, even though it’s not marketed as a fast drying top coat I have noticed that it dried my nails really quick!
I’m excited to hear your thoughts on Chanel’s new formula and top coat. I would love to know which is your favorite Chanel Le Vernis Nail Swatches shade below!
PIRATE – The perfect vampy red and one of Chanel’s bestselling cult favorites.ROUGE ESSENTIEL – My new favorite red! This shade is very similar to Chanel’s ‘Dragon’ which is my go to red polish.GINATE – Is a cute poppy red-orange and their brightest red in this collection.SHANTUNG – Gorgeous shade and a cross between magenta and a deep raspberry color.Camelia – The richest pink with a hint of blue.
PARTICULIERE – One of my personal favorites! I haven’t come across a color that compares to this shade, it’s my favorite taupe polish. This color looks different on every client I’ve put it on, but compliments every skin tone.
GARCONNE – You don’t see too many colors like this around, but thankfully for Chanel theres now a greenish grey. MONOCHROME – I would recommend everyone to have a shade of grey in their collection and this is such a good light grey for every skin tone.ORGANDI – This is the perfect full-coverage rosy nude shade for spring.
BALLERINA – A true classic Chanel shade! My clients personally request this soft pale pink shade all the time.
MYTHIQUE – A dark burgundy polish that I fell in LOVE with at the #COCOLOVESLA beauty lounge event this past weekend in Los Angeles. This is a color I normally wouldn’t wear, but I decided to give a try and I’m glad I did. I immediately fell in love when the lovely manicurist at Olive and June applied it perfectly.VAMP – This color will never go out of style! This edgy black-red polish has been rocking since its debut in the 1990’s.ROUBACHKA – Is a deep purple almost black shade. Initially very sheer with one coat, but perfect with two coats.
CHAINE OR – My dreams came true! Chanel released a GOLD polish and it’s gorgeous. Two coats gives you a good amount of coverage, but three coats makes it the perfect gold.
*Unfortunately, I could not swatch Rouge Noir or Mariniere, but these shades are available in the new formula.
I wanted to thank Chanel and Elizabeth Fraise for inviting to attend #COCOLOVESLA beauty lounge event at the Chateau Marmont. I had an amazing time at the event with Stephanie Stone from the Photo Booth to and getting our nails done by the sweetest manicurists over at Olive & June, thank you Sarah and Ashlie Johnson! I wanted to share with you all a couple of pictures I took at the event just incase you missed my snaps. *The color I’m wearing is Mythique by Chanel 🙂
