Chanel Azure (657) Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic blue green.” It’s a brightened, bluish-teal with a metallic finish. It seems to shift a bit from blue to teal to green, depending on the angle and how the light hits the color. The color itself is interesting and complex. I’ll be reviewing it soon, but Dior’s Samba isn’t an exact dupe for this–it is more of a true teal with less shift and more warmth. China Glaze Deviantly Daring is similar when Azure is in its blue stages, but it doesn’t have the same green-teal shift. Zoya Charla has a very different finish (more glitter/sparkle) and is a darker, bluer polish overall.

It’s fully opaque in two coats, and the drying time is about average, but it’s important to wait for each coat to dry before applying another as it will pull/drag if not fully dry. There are also a lot of noticeable brush strokes to the finish, even after it has dried down (sometimes they fade and blend away once the polish is dry, but not in this case). I wish this was slightly less metallic or wasn’t as prone to showing the brush strokes, because I think it takes away from the application and end result. The consistency was slightly thin but was fine to work with. I typically get a week of wear out of Chanel’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.
