Chanel Rouge Noir, Rose Fusion, Lame Rouge Noir Le Vernis

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.

Sugarpill x Edward Scissorhands Nail Polishes

Sugarpill Ice Angel Nail Polish ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blend of snow white flecks in varying sizes.” It’s flecks of multi-sized white pieces suspended in a clear base, and it does look a lot like snow applied. It was designed to be layered over The Inventory or used alone, and it actually applied a lot better than I expected–the “snow” really disperses evenly across the nail without getting too many large pieces in one area or bald spots. A single coat is shown on my thumb nail, and the effect is noticeable, even, and pretty much true-to-description. I also tried it layered in various ways over the dark gray coordinating shade–kind of in the theme of a blizzard, a flurry, and a sprinkling of snow. It actually seemed smoother than the glitter in The Inventory and has a more noticeable shine (without a top coat). I don’t have any dupes to share with you, but I’m sure there are some out there! Sugarpill’s polish formula lasts seven days on me with minor tip wear but no chipping.

MAC Simply Swinging & Blog This Studio Nail Lacquers

MAC Simply Swinging Studio Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “grey lilac.” It’s a muted, light-medium lavender purple with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was slightly thick, and it didn’t level out as much as it could have, so some areas looked thicker and more opaque than others. It had a really nice high-shine finish, though. After two coats, it had mostly opaque coverage. I typically get a week of wear out of MAC’s polish. Cult Nails Let's Get Dirty (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Essie Warm & Toasty Turtleneck (P, $8.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Zoya Normani (P, $9.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Rescue Beauty Lounge Forgiveness (LE, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). Formula X Perfection (P, $14.00) is darker (85% similar). Zoya Jana (P, $9.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar).
