Perfect Nails // Chanel Rouge Noir

I have to say, I’m a sucker for nail polish, I’ve always been! I just love colours and how creative you can get with the polishes – especially with all the new trends. I want to introduce you to my first CHANEL love. I bought this 6 years ago – I think. You can totally see how worn and damaged the bottle is, a well used polish. I was working as a dishwasher – I blame that on how my hands looks now, excuse that. One day I went to lunch with a coworker and she had this on. When I saw this colour I knew I had to get my mitts in it, no matter how much it was! 

This was the very first time I went to the CHANEL counter – and oh my, I fell in love. It’s the most expensive nail polish I’ve ever bought but it is the best darn ££ I’ve ever spent. I’ve used this varnish autumn after autumn and I will never get tired of it – it’s just beautiful! CHANEL Rouge Noir Nail Varnish is a deep burgundy colour. Perfect for the autumn and winter season and perfect year after year – amazingly my polish isn’t totally empty but it’s getting there, unfortuneately. 
After entering the youtube and blogging world, I’ve always heard negative things about CHANEL’s polishes, as I didn’t know that at the time I just went with it and expected it to be good – hey it’s a £20 polish it has to be. I would have to say it works fine for me, though there’s nothing overly amazing about it – other than the colour, of course! 2 coats does the job and it will stay put for about 2-3 days before it starts to chip – maybe it will stay put for longer if you have a out-of-this-world topcoat *cough cough need the Seche Vite one* but 2-3 days is fine for me. I will be changing colour about that time anyways. 

All in all a perfect autumnal polish that I’ll definitely be repurchasing. Also way to go CHANEL it hasn’t dried out after 6 years! *wup wup*
Have you tried any CHANEL polishes? What is your perfect autumnal polish? 

Lots of love

    And then, you have people claiming that Revlon's dry fast nailpolish is awesome.. bought one and a week later, it was already too dry to apply it properly and it was making bubbles and chipping when drying… LOL.

    I might buy a Chanel nailpolish, either a classic red or white, I'll see! Though, I really like the color of yours.

    The only thing I have to say is that you should be cleaning your cuticles before taking a picture. If you don't already know thing "cheat": use a Q-Tip and apply olive oil or vaseline all around your nails, on the cuticles. Then, when you'll be done with painting your nails, you just use rubbing alcohol and whipe the cuticles (or you can use nailpolish remover, but you have to be more careful to not remove any nailpolish). Be careful though, if Olive oil of vaseline goes on your nail, the nailpolish will go away!

    Such a beautiful Chanel nail polish. I really need to invest in more Chanel nail polishes, I'm mad about their lipsticks though!
