So I try not to give into Chanel. Especially when there are expected dupes available at the drugstore, and I buy them. But, this one was another particularly beautiful polish that I just couldn't pass up.
It is very similar in color to the Revlon Carbonite, which is pretty much the closest polish to this available as of right now. It's a dark smokey gray color with a hint of golden shimmer. The shimmer is bigger an almost glass fleck like. It applies beautifully, and opaque, not thick and gross. It also wears really nicely.
I have 3 coats on my nails in these pictures. I used Nubar's base coat and Seche Vite.
It lasted on my nails with almost no tip wear for about 6 full days. Then I took it off to do some comparisons (which will be up soon).The golden shimmer definitely shows up much nicer in the sunlight. It's subtle and gentle and not at all overpowering. It's eye catching, and people commented on it a lot while I had it on.
Chanel polishes retail for $25 each and are available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and other high end department stores.
