Longing for sea and clear night sky I decided to go for a very unusual summer nail polish choice this time. As you already know, Chanel is really good at creating rare shades and colors so this time I was able to find exactly what I was looking for – right in my nail polish stash. If you like deep blue creams – this one is for you!
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.
Inspired with jeans and everything jeans-related Chanel created three exquisite nail polishes for their ‘Les Jeans De Chanel Collection 2011’ that instantly caused a huge Chanel-nail-polish-hype all over the world. All of the three nail polishes were limited edition at the time of the release but due to the fact how much the makeup lovers really liked these shades – all of the colors were added to the permanent collection not long after – but in different countries. You can now find each shade but in different locations only.
Out of the three nail polishes – Coco Blue, Blue Boy and Blue Rebel – I especially like the Chanel Blue Rebel for how deep and at the same time muted, darkened blue it is. It is definitely a navy blue but not a usual one, it has something mysterious about it, a bit of grey-ish undertone that makes it more dimensional and unique compared to other navy blues.
Blue Rebel has a cream finish and as a result a wonderful application as it goes perfectly smooth and even. You will have to layer two coats of it to reach full color opacity that is pretty standard for nail polishes nowadays. The finish is also quite glossy but, as you may already know, I prefer using top coats for even more shine and to prolong the wear time.
This is one of the best Chanel nail polishes in terms of wear time, actually. It wears perfectly for a week with minor tip wear and no chipping. I had to take this off after a week to paint my nails with a new shade but I believe it would have lasted for a couple days more if I didn’t.
Such a color goes well with everything white, blue and grey-black. It is like a darker universal shade for me. It is muted and it is not such a statement color as a black could be. Therefore it looks appropriate for practically any occasion and does not contradict with clothing and your color choices. You can rarely find such a nice blue shade like this one and I’m happy it was made permanent (check Chanel website for your country to find out if it is permanent in your region).
It definitely does reflect the ‘jeans’ idea but to my mind it is also a very nice navy shade and it a very cool color for a sea-side. I absolutely adore the Blue Rebel for being such a gorgeous blue! Believe me, it is worth checking out – I don’t think it has very close dupes out there.
