Chanel Nail Polish: Lotus Rouge

Chanel is now officially a master of red. At least, for me. Red, carmine, different shades of rose are all extremely beautiful when done by Chanel. The Chanel Lotus Rouge is an exceptional example of the perfect red nail polish, when color, undertones and hues are all perfectly balanced.

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.

Chanel Lotus Rouge has been out there for as long as I remember as it is a proud member of the Chanel permanent nail polish line. At least, you can get it in UK. Eye-catching and unique, this nail polish has its own individuality that makes it different from all other reds.

Chanel Lotus Rouge is a very deep red shade with slightly fuchsia pink undertones that make it more cool-toned than neutral. It has almost glass or jelly-like finish balancing on the edge of being see-through. It looks way darker in the bottle compared how it looks on the nails.

It is very jelly and the formula is quite runny that makes the application process a bit more complicated as you have to be very precise where you place the nail polish brush. Although it applies very evenly even in one coat but you require at least two coats to make it more or less opaque.

As a jelly nail polish it as a beautiful glossy finish to it that does not disappear throughout the wear. I prefer to use all my nail polishes with a base and fast-drying top coat and it works fine with both.  It lasts for about five to seven days on my nails.

I can see why the red lotus has been the inspiration behind this nail polish as it has the same almost translucent, lightweight beauty. This one of the best red nail polishes in my collection and it is unique. Its almost cool-toned undertones makes it especially beautiful combined with the light-weight jelly and glossy finish. This is a perfect red, as red as it is appropriate and as glossy it should be.

If you are looking for perfectly balanced red nail polishChanel Lotus Rouge is a good candidate. Quite long-wearing and suitable for any occasion, it will be an irreplaceable red in your collection.
