Whoa. Just, whoa. Vertigo is a gorgeous Chanel nail polish in every possible way. Colour – the perfect not quite black but not grey so lets call it “light black”, with the famous Chanel hidden shimmer. And the shimmer is a soft purple! Again, the shimmer is hidden, is doesn’t really show on the nails but by being there adds a subtle tone that adds a dimension to the colour. Yes, it’s a cream, but it’s rich and not remotely “flat”. The formula- perfection! I got full coverage in, wait for it, one coat!
When I first saw Vertigo I thought it was similar to Paradoxal and that I didn’t need it. Silly me. Of course, Paradoxal is much more grey with the purple tone being a little more obvious. Vertigo is perfect if you want a dark nail, but don’t want a vampy red and aren’t ready to commit to black. Verdict? Love.
Chanel Le Vernis nail polish in Vertigo is available at Chanel counters and boutiques, as well as online
