Chanel Rouge Noir (18) Le Vernis ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “black red.” It’s a deep, dark purpled berry with a cream finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a slightly translucent, stained-like quality to it that made it seem very rich on the nail. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it applied easily. I get around seven days of wear with Chanel’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.
