Chanel Nail Polish: Bel-Argus

I am always very impressed how Chanel manages to capture some exceptional beauty and translate it into the makeup language. Talented makeup artists and creators work for Chanel so that we enjoy unbelievably beautiful, marvelous shades and colors. The Bel-Argus nail polish is a magnificent nail polish shade ever created and is definitely the most favorite of mine.

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00) features classic and trend-defining shades in an exclusive formula that strengthens and moisturizes nails as it delivers high-shine colour. Applies without streaking.

The Chanel Bel-Argus nail polish was launched as a limited edition nail color for Summer 2013 Collection named ‘L’Eté Papillon de Chanel‘. The whole collection was inspired by butterflies and all products received the respective names of flowers and butterflies.

This stunning shade is a gorgeous deep sapphire color with the hit of purple. It has a very strong metallic sheen though doesn’t have any visible streaks. It significantly changes its color in different lighting from very light silvery blue to very deep and dark purple-blue that makes it absolutely unique.

The application is quite nice considering it is a metallic shade. The brush doesn’t leave that many streaks that somehow get smoothed out and are barely or not even visible in real life. You will have to use two coats to reach full color opacity that also adds a lot of dimension to the color. This particular shade  dries very fast due to its metallic finish and have enough glossiness on its own but I still prefer to use it with a top coat for even more shine.

Unfortunately, this polish doesn’t last that long on my nails and I can usually wear it for three days with no tip wear or chipping, with the minor tip wear it will last you for about four-five days.

The shade is so unique and gorgeous that I think I wear it the most out of all my nail polishes. I cannot think of a better summer nail polish that looks amazing on the nails and receives tons of compliments. Moreover, I have to say that Chanel definitely manages to recreate the beautiful color you can see on the wings of the most summery Adonis Blue butterfly, also known as “Polyommatus bellargus” – this magnificent sapphire blue with the hint of purple.

This nail polish is limited edition and I don’t think it is easy to get hold of. But if I could get another bottle of this gorgeous polish I definitely would have that is how splendid it is. It also goes perfect with sapphire jewelry and rings. The most beautiful Chanel nail polish ever. Bravo!
