Nail Polish: Chanel Tentation

I have been very much into pinks lately, especially after the Valentine’s Day. I have recently re-discovered a gorgeous bright fuchsia pink Chanel nail polish called Tentation. It is just the most beautiful bright almost neon pink shade I have ever seen – and it does look extremely flattering on the nails.

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 always manages to find the most unusual shades and create a beautiful, wearable statement nail polish out of it. Chanel Tentation was one out of of four limited edition shades released for Levres Scintillantes Roses Ultimes de Chanel Collection. As all four colors were limited edition I haven’t seen any of them repromoted since. Although, it is a gorgeous shade and I think you might find some really close dupes out there if you happen to fall in love with the color.

Chanel Tentation was officially described as simple as ‘fuchsia‘ and it actually is a very bright almost neon fuchsia red shade with the tiniest ever pink and blue shimmer throughout that changes its undertone from warm to very cool one. The finish is in-between cream and metallic that makes this nail polish very unique.

Moreover, Tetnation has a beautiful formula – this is a one coater when you can barely see the tips of the nails and two coats look almost like a gel polish especially with the Essie top coat. It glides on easily and evens out instantly on its own. Even though it has already been almost four years since I got it – it still is in a perfect condition. It lasts for at least five days on my nails that are currently longer than average and are more prone to chipping and wearing-off.

Overall, Tentation is the most beautiful bright fuchsia pink nail polish in my collection. I love everything about it and will definitely include it in my weekly nail polish rotation. I would really love to know if there are any close dupes to this one as it is close to becoming a staple of mine. It looks classy and eye-catching as the right statement nail polish should look like. Perfect fuchsia with excellent application and wear-time characteristics. Beautiful!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,
