Christmas Stocking Filler 3. Chanel Le Vernis, 677 Rouge Rubis……………..and Exhale!
The party season has begun and the holiday makeup collections are already on counters across the world.
I had spotted the Chanel nail polish in the shade Rouge Rubis. At the time, i wasn’t really over awed with the shade. Main reason being is that during the 1980′s red was really one of the very few shades you could buy for the nails. So, the shade had sort of reminded me of the 1980′s, a bit retro.
However; One of my very lovely followers; Amanda Hollingsworth; persuaded me to buy it because she is a Chanel nail polish enthusiast and had told me that there had never been such a beautiful pure red colour released, ever by Chanel.
Last year i had missed out on Chanel Le Vernis, Malice, part of the holiday collection for 2012 and didn’t want to make that mistake again because Rouge Rubis is also LE as is the whole collection.
The formula is fantastic too. One coat was all that was needed to cover the whole nail and it’s one of the easiest nail colours i have ever worked with from a Chanel. One thing that is a slight negative though, is that they never produced a lipstick which matches the nail polish perfectly. The Rouge Allure Velvet, La Precieuse, is a close match with a pink base to it (from the same collection). Another thing is i could be a bit neater when applying nail polish but it never looks that bad until i do the close up of the photo, haha oh! well.
Classic and iconic from Chanel and another great stocking filler.
Stick it on your wish list. Have a great week everyone and i will see you all soon. ;-)
