Chanel Frenzy Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “lilac grey.” It’s a light taupe with a cream finish. There’s a little brown, little gray in it. Looks like the inside of a mushroom to me (aka it’s sooo taupe!). Zoya Farah is a little darker, browner. Essie Sand Tropez is very similar but a smidgen lighter. MAC Inert is grayer, a little darker.  It’s the new nude; not beige, not mannequin hands–sophisticated and elevated. Why is taupe always so lovely? I could see this being a really nice go-to for office-appropriate nails.

It’s mostly opaque in two coats, but there is some visible nail line coming through. It does apply fairly well, though.  I was expecting major streaking, but it was mostly even and very easy to control.  The consistency was a nice balance of thick and thin, not going too far in either direction, so I didn’t have problems with bubbling or pooling, either.  I felt like it took a little long to dry but not too much longer than usual.  With Chanel’s formula, I usually get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping–but very few formulas chip on me (and none really come to mind, other than matte polishes without a top coat).
