FIRST IMPRESSIONS-CHANEL NAIL POLISH

CHANEL LE VERNIS NAIL COLOUR | FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Good evening Little Ones, I’ve just settled down from sweating profusely at the gym … Arm days are the absolute worst! Maybe because I have next to no arm muscles, but we are getting there Little Ones, slowly but surely!
Anyhow, it’s been a minute since I’ve done a first impressions, and never before have I written about nail polish, simply because I stick to the same old brands … But Chris treated me randomly to Chanel nail polish! I’ve never owned such an expensive polish before, but let’s dive into application, longevity, is it worth it?
If that’s something that sounds exciting, scroll below!
To ensure you are keeping up to date with my content, click here! Without any further or do, let’s crack on with the first impressions!

THE PACKAGING:

Chanel, this is what I’m talking about … I know I dug at you a little on my previous blog post, but here you are sticking to traditional routes, glass bottles, can I get an amen!

This has to be the most beautiful nail polish component I’ve ever laid my eyes upon, and I’ve even had the pleasure to witness Christian Louboutin’s creations; but simplicity overall wins. 
Yes, having a nail polish that could slay your enemies is fantastic, but stay classy with Chanel, the overly bold lid, with the ever so iconic Chanel logo remains beautiful. 
The design remains consistent throughout, for example, the lid screams bulky as well as the square glass container that follows. 
Detail is key, Chanel evidently keeps that in the back of their mind as they make their smallest products feel like a treasure for each consumer. 
Unlike other nail polish, Chanel decided to remain innovative by positioning the phrase, ‘le vernis’ on the centre of the bottle, it actually translates to nail polish; some of which other make-up companies wouldn’t do. 
Seeing that Chanel was founded in Paris, and remains a French brand, I adore the fact that they continue to stay within their routes.    
With their entire nail polish range, all the colours shine beautifully, there is so much space provided, there is no need for prolonged synonym for perfect, plain and simple, just how I like it.     

 

 

 

THE PRODUCT:

Where to start? Maybe the shade name? Rouge red, now application time! Firstly, the brush provided is fantastic, small enough to fit into the cuticles, but big enough to apply an even distribution of product. 
When I initially applied the polish I was shocked by how much pigment followed, it wasn’t streaky, didn’t bubble and went on evenly. 
But, with such a high price point that’s what I expected!
The colour is true to what it looks like in the bottle, (I know some products portray one colour, but translate differently when applied to the nail).
Which is fantastic! If you are considering what colour to purchase at least you know what you are getting yourself into, no cat-fishing going on here. 
I can’t fault the colour, absolutely enchanting, such a classy bright red … Makes me feel powerful and sexy! 
Once I’ve painted my nails, I feel like I can achieve anything and everything … This red makes me feel and act confident!
Although, here is the kicker … Goes on like a dream, colour is dreamy, but this takes such a long time to dry!
I don’t mind painting my nails and waiting an hour, when I normally do my nails I’m watching a film, that way I give it more than enough time, so I can get on with the rest of my day. 
But no … This nail polish proceeded to anger me! After waiting an hour, and having applied only 2 thin layers I thought it was time to move on. 
I barely touched the corner, and smudge city … Believe me, I have patience, but that’s where I draw the line. 
I have places to go Chanel, stop taking my time away by forcing me to wait more than an hour to let my nails dry!
It took a total of 2 hours before I felt confident doing anything relatively challenging with my hands … Which is so frustrating. 

Finally, once this beauty has dried down the finish is phenomenal, shiny healthy looking nails, the amount of compliments I received, “where did you get your nails done”?, “Such a beautiful colour, what brand is it”?

THE PRICE:

It all comes down to a hearty price of, £22 … Damn, I’ve never spent this much money on a nail polish, and I still haven’t, as this was a random act of kindness from my beloved fiance.
Would I personally spend £22 … I think I would yes, due to the fact after wearing this nail polish for a couple of days, it still hasn’t chipped, the colour is gorgeous, (you could get away with 1 application).
The drying situation is throwing me off, but I used to get my nails done once a month, that averagely cost around, £30-35 each month, whereas if I spend £22 on one nail polish, I’m sorted for a couple of months.
It’s all up to you and what you want to spend your money on, for me personally it’s worth the cash, but if it’s not for you; there are some great shades by Essie.
