So Chanel have been hitting it out the park with basically all of their releases. I couldn’t help myself splashing out on 99% of the Les Beiges Collection, and the Les Automnales Collection wasn’t too different.
Before hitting up my nearest counter, I had done a little poking about online, focusing mainly on Vert Obscur. Green polishes aren’t a shade a typically go for (although I have a few faves), so the idea of a blackened green seriously appealed to me!
Like most of Chanel’s dark polishes, Vert Obscur has a quite a thick consistency, and is seriously pigmented. The first coat of the polish applies as a pretty forest green which is nearly opaque. The second coat really deepens the shade, creating an smooth, almost black which is super flattering. The green tint is only noticeable when light hits the polish, and it gives my winter-staple dark manicures a great new twist. I got two days of wear before I noticed chipping and peeling, so although it’s not the longest lasting polish in the world, it’s a stunning one!
Chanel Les Vernis in Vert Obscur is priced at £18.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
