Chanel Cosmic Le Vernis Nail Colour
Chanel Magic & Cosmic Le Vernis Nail Colour

Chanel’s Nuit Magique Collection includes two limited edition shades of polish, which released this past Monday. I was underwhelmed by Cosmic, as it’s a shade that we’ve seen several times in the past couple of years, though with larger sparkle, but with the finer, sparser sparkle in Cosmic, it’s hard to see it except under a lot of light or at an angle. Magic was more unique (based on what I’ve reviewed and swatched myself), and it also applied beautifully.

Cosmic Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “black sparkling with blue and silver pearl.” It’s a medium-dark black base with fine flecks of navy blue and silver shimmer. The shimmer is somewhat sparse and fine, so from afar, it tended to look more like a black cream. It was mostly opaque after two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, but in some ways, it seemed watery. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Batty (P, $10.00) has larger sparkle. NARS Night Breed (LE, $19.00) also has larger sparkle. L’Oreal The Queen’s Ambition (LE) has more sparkle. L’Oreal Drop Dead Gorgeous (P) is similar. Illamasqua Creator (P, $17.00) has more sparkle, larger sparkle. Color Club Show Time (P) has more sparkle. China Glaze Smoke & Ashes (LE, $7.50) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Magic Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “daybreak blue.” It’s a medium-dark blue cream; it’s not too cool-toned, and it’s brighter and lighter than navy blue. This shade was incredibly pigmented and was fully opaque after two coats. The consistency was slightly thin, but I didn’t have any application issues. Marc Jacobs Beauty Blue Velvet (132) (P, $18.00) is the shade I could think of that is most similar in color, but it has a totally different finish. NARS Superstar (LE, $19.00) is less blue. Chanel Blue Rebel (LE, $27.00) is darker. China Glaze First Mate (LE, $7.50) is a bit darker. Essie Go Overboard (LE, $8.00) is greener. See comparison swatches.
