Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in 489 Rose Insolent - Swatches & Review

For more swatches please look at the haul post I did on this... here.

Here are pics from that post:

No complaints here except that there are kinda like 2 caps and I am lazy about that and maybe there should only be one? But the fat cap would annoy me. Lol... So yea...

The brush appears to be a bit on the smaller side but not too much of a hassle - it just takes more strokes to apply.

This lasted about 4 days without chipping (minus one fingernail), and minor wearing on the edges - which is normal. I used Seche Vite on top. It was quite quick drying as well.

Would I repurchase?
Not this particular shade because although I do like it (I wore this non-stop for two manis!! That's how much I liked it!), I find it a bit loud? for me! I WOULD DEFINATELY, if I have the chance (and funds!!) buy other shades. :)


What do you think of this shade? What is your fave brand of nail polish? To this day, I think Chanel is topping my list! :)

  1. Oooh, I like this colour! :D This post makes me a little bit more interested in Chanel nail polish! :P
    How much was it?

    Oh, and also, you SHOULD purchase the Sleek palette! I bought mine from Ebay for around $AU15 which included shipping! I think that's pretty inexpensive. :3

    I hope all has been well. xx

  2. Hey Ailing!

    I've replied on your blog but as I've said in my reply... Chanel nail polish retails at Aust. Chanel counters for AU$49 but I picked this up at Aust. duty free for only AU$29! :D Awesome right?

    & AU$15 for the sleek palette is a great deal! Gotta lurve ebay! :D
