Chanel Accessoire Le Vernis / Nail Colour
Chanel Accessoire Le Vernis / Nail Colour ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep red brown.” It is a deep, red-toned brown with a cream finish. It’s almost a perfect balance of red and brown, so it yields something very rich and lush but deep and dark all the same. MAC Dim the Lights is browner. Barielle Wool You Marry Me is a smidgen darker but very comparable. Rescue Beauty Lounge Atame is much darker and more red-toned. Rescue Beauty Lounge Moulin Rouge is a bit darker.
Oh, Accessoire was head-to-toe luxury–fantastic formula with opaque color in two coats (nearly in one!) with a consistency that was balanced between thick and thin. The polish flowed beautifully across the nail without streaking, bubbling, or pooling along the edges. It dried down to a naturally shiny finish, too. I typically get a week of wear out of Chanel’s formula with no chipping (just minor tip wear). It’s absolutely the kind of shade that makes up a core color range, so you may, in fact, have something already like it, but if you don’t, consider it a color (whether this particular Chanel or a lookalike) to add to your color wardrobe.
