Chanel Vernis – 505 Particuliere

CHANEL 505 Particuliere

To say I have no self control when it comes to Chanel’s beauty offerings is in no way an understatement. Every time I pass by those slick black lacquered cabinets I get suckered in, and it’s a rare day that I leave those lacquered counters empty handed. My most recent acquisition is the rather unusual, milk chocolate nail varnish in Particuliere.

I had seen a few friends wearing the shade recently and completely fallen in love with it. For someone like me, who usually sticks to a palette of neutrals or super darks, Particuliere seemed like the perfect middle ground. The formula of the varnish is absolutely dreamy – opaque in a single coat, there was no streaking or bubbling, although I did opt for two coats just out of habit. I’m absolutely obsessed with the cool, milk-chocolate creamy brown colour, and the wear time for me was two days before I noticed chipping and tip wear.

Chanel Vernis 505 Particuliere is priced at £18.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)

    This looks like such a beautiful shade! I’ve not really dabbled in high end nail polish before but this looks so tempting! xo

      I’m so glad you like the colour! I would definitely try it out, but Chanel formulas are never the longest lasting unfortunately (Dior stay longest for me!) xxx
