Chanel Eastern Light Le Vernis Nail Colour ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as an “opaque white.” It’s a bright, white cream–not too cool-toned, not really warm. It doesn’t look quite as stark as say, corrector, no the nails; I didn’t get that vibe. NARS Ecume is slightly brighter. MAC Vestral White is also a bit brighter. China Glaze Snow is a cooler-toned white.

Chanel touts their lacquer as “long-wearing, high-shine, chip-resistant” while applying “evenly without streaking.” Eastern Light doesn’t apply evenly, and it is riddled with streakiness. It’s one of the better-applying white cream polishes I’ve tried, but it’s not, by any stretch of the imagination, streak-free. The consistency is just slightly on the thicker side, and it self-leveled to an extent but not completely. After two coats, it was mostly opaque, except where areas of heavy streakiness, then the second coat did not cover it entirely. I think three coats would hide the underlying streakiness, but it does get a little thick to wear and will take awhile to dry down fully. It has a great high-gloss finish, but the streaks make this a major no-go–not at $30.
