Another week, another blackened ‘insert colour here’ nail polish love. This time around it’s CHANEL’s Rouge Noir; a colour that I’ve been unable to erase from my memory since I spotted it on Elin Kling’s tips. I swore I’d never dip into CHANEL lacquers again with their low quality, high price rep but if Elin’s got it? Well I can’t resist.
The colour does what it says on the tin and takes the medal for most stereotypical autumn shade. I like it equally on the toes or tips. Two coats does the job and it’s the kind of shade that blends in with whatever monochrome ensemble I’ve thrown on. In regards to quality, this colour isn’t the worst from CHANEL I’ve tried; it layers on well and lasts three/four days before things begin to look too chippy which is pretty standard for me and I’m struggling to find a dupe in my collection (though Essie Sole Mate is probably the closest). See? A completely justified purchase.
