Chanel Fall 2012 Les Essentiels De Chanel Nail Vernis 561 Suspicious, 563 Vertigo Swatches and Review
Can you believe it? Fall is right around the corner and Summer isn’t even half way over yet! I am not ready to see the leaves turn amber gold and fall off. This warm weather during the summer makes life so much more fun outdoors. Though, the sun is probably too strong for our skin.
Speaking about the topic of fall, Les Essentiels De Chanel Collection is secretly making its way and totally caught us off guard. The collection is all about elegance and wearability. The colors are very mature yet classy as always. Today I’ll be featuring the nail polishes, 561 Suspicious and 563 Vertigo. Unfortunately, I didn’t get Frenzy for some odd reason. More about that at a later time.
Suspicious and Vertigo are colors that are of 2 separate extremes. Vertigo is leaning towards the black family whereas Suspicious is in the fuschia. I can imagine the boldness of the red mixed with black on clothes. Colors are indeed classy but also killer sexy.
Starting off with Suspicious. I was a bit “suspicious” at the color when I first saw it. It looked like a cross hybrid between hot pink and red. Without shimmers or anything glittery, this polish is a perfect cream with a lot of glossiness to it. Double coating makes this polish perfectly flawless on the nails.
The formula is more fluid than the usual creme polish so you won’t be able to get even coverage with one coat. So prepare for that. The swatches below are taken indoor with studio lighting and camera flash. As you can see the finish is very glossy.
Vertigo is a more edgy color with such complexity. It’s really hard to capture the real beauty with a camera. The color looks to me like carbon smokey grey with micro sized plum-burgundy shimmers. However, deep violet is instilled in the formula as well. You can look at the photos below to see what I mean. It is pretty much a color changer at different angles of lighting. Much similar to Suspicious, Vertigo is also formulated thin and light but color pigmentation is pretty good. Though I’d definitely recommend applying two coats for even coverage.
Again the swatches are taken indoor for the first photo and with camera flash for the second. The shimmers are not so noticeable if you don’t look closely but I did manage to catch the shimmers on the middle finger with camera flash.
Whether it’s striking fuchsia or provocative black, the colors coordinate well with the cooler weather. The formula is easy to work with and the pigmentation is rich. They are not totally unique but still complimenting for a polish look. The colors are somewhat bolder and less colorful than the Summertime de Chanel Collection. It is for Fall after all.
