Chanel, how I love thee. It’s like an endless love affair, one that will go on forever and ever. From nail polish, clothing, jewellery, brooches to bags, I love you in all your forms. Me biased? Noooooo……..
The easiest way to get your hands on a Chanel item without having to break the piggy bank, is buying its cosmetics like nail polish. One of Chanel’s iconic nail polishes is the Chanel rouge noir nail polish (no 18.). It’s a plum, bordeaux kind of colour. For a deeper tone you can build up the colour by applying more coats. It goes on very smooth (not gooey at all), dries quickly and it lasts long (wear a good base and top coat). I only applied one coat and the colour looks great. And don’t you just love the bottle?
Before I forget, I also read somewhere that Chanel nail polishes are 5 free nail polishes meaning it doesn’t contain formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde resin and camphor (these ingredients are linked to toxicity). Another reason to love it.
True, it’s pricey (the Chanel rouge noir nail polish costs approximately £18/€23), but what can you expect? It’s Chanel. And you don’t just buy a nail polish, you buy an experience as well. For some reason whenever I apply it, I get this luxury feeling. The feeling that I’m wearing something special. Yes, brainwashed…(the Chanel marketing team is just too good).
