Chanel Holiday Le Vernis

Chanel Holiday Le Vernis ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a bright medium-dark orange with a cream finish. MAC Morange is similar, a touch lighter. NARS Lal Mirchi is redder. MAC Kid Orange is redder. MAC Oriele is redder but muted. Essie Braziliant is darker, more red-toned.  It has some red undertones, but it’s more orange than red–definitely not coral.  There’s enough vibrancy for it to pop, but I wouldn’t describe it as a neon–there’s too much depth for that.

There’s definitely no shortage of orange nail polish options this summer! It seems like every major brand has launched at least one.  This shade seems a bit more dupeable, though it can be a little difficult to find an orange that is mostly orange, rather than orange-red, that isn’t neon.    It was opaque in two coats, and it applied evenly and fluidly–it was the easiest to apply out of the three in the summer collection.  The consistency was just a tiny bit thin. There was the slightest jelly-like quality to it, though it’s really a cream.  I typically get a week of wear out of Chanel’s formula, but I don’t have issues with nail polishes chipping on me aside from some matte formulas (with no base/top coat).

    Pretty, but not $26 kinda pretty. LOL. I already think I’m outta my mind handing over the $ for Butter London and Illamasqua…this would just be too much to comprehend. $26 for a nail polish…

  3. There are probably lots of dupes on this one with orange being such a hot colour, but I do love the true tangerine look to this Chanel product.  The Chanel nail formula is one of my personal favs.  I painted my toes 5 weeks ago (base, 2 coats nail varnish, and top coat) and finally just removed last night since it was starting to flake off.

    This is such a clean, true orange! Reminds me of MAC Morange.

    Reminded me instantly of the Rimmel Lasting Finish polish I bought last summer in Tangerine Queen.
    Christine, when you talk about wear, how rough are you with your hands? I work in a supermarket, am a fashion design student and do all housework and most polishes just don’t last a day with me.

    •  @Damsel_Villain I don’t take any particular precaution with my hands – I don’t wear gloves or the like.  I don’t usually do dishes, since that’s not my chore, but I clean countertops, vacuum, clean mirrors, dust, and wash the dog as far as household duties go.  I photograph and type a lot–that’s really what my “job” demands.  I’ll open cans with my nails, scratch things away, etc.  Even when I travel, I don’t have any problems with polish chipping on me.  With or without a base/top coat. I’m sorry if that’s not very helpful – that’s just how my days are!

    •  @Damsel_Villain I also play tennis… if that’s considered hard on your nails. Usually 4-6x a week, depending on the weather, for about an hour each time.

    this reminds me a lot of Deborah Lippmann’s Lara’s Theme!
