Chanel Nail Polish: Rouge Noir

There are tons of red polishes on the market. Some are  more unique and eye-catching than the others. But some reds, especially deep and rich ones, instantly make me want to try them on my nails. Red is the classic nail polish. So is the black one. And what can be more beautiful, mesmerizing and mysterious than a blackened red? Chanel Rouge Noir is exactly like that.

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 Rouge Noir is iconic. It is history. It is legend. It is the most famous nail polish Chanel has ever created. It was created 1995 and became one of the five best-selling nail polishes in the world. It was trendsetting and made the way for unusually dark, vampy colors into the makeup world. It inspired the Chanel collection for Christmas 2015 that is known as Rouge Noir Absolument and it is also a part of this collection. And best of all – it is permanent!

Chanel Rouge Noir is a rich blackened cherry shade with very strong red undertones and a jelly finish. The red base makes it unique as it does not turn completely black in any lighting – there is always something red in it that makes it so dimensional.

This nail polish has quite a runny formula that makes it a bit hard to apply it evenly – you have to be quite precise and act quicker than usual to layer the product evenly and straight. But if you manage it – the second layer goes easily. The first coat looks more red and less opaque but you can get away with it. Though I totally recommend using two coats of Rouge Noir to achieve the mysterious red but almost black effect.

Rouge Noir has a fantastic glossy glass-like finish on its own though I always use a top and a base coat with all my nail polishes. It has an average wear time – somewhat about four or five days with tips wearing off the second day.

This is a unique and legendary shade. I love how mysterious and mesmerizing it is. The perfect almost black red nail polish that suits every outfit and makeup look. It is the exact same color as the freshly picked juicy cherry – that deep red with a hint of black. Marvelous!

This shade is a part off this year’s Christmas collection by Chanel and is a must-have for any fashionista. It will definitely earn its place in your collection if you decide to get it.

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,
