Chanel Spring 2011: Peche Nacree

Chanel Peche Nacree Le Vernis Nail Colour ($23.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark peach with pale white peach micro-shimmer strewn through it. It has a frost-metallic finish, so there are some visible brush strokes when under bright light.  It’s opaque in two coats, despite being a lighter shade.

CHANEL LE VERNIS is a pricey product that often comes out with more unique shades (that are later replicated by other brands). The originality or amount of depth in their shades is what often pulls me towards them. Overall, I’ve had good luck with the formula and wear. The formula tends to be on the thicker side but not so thick it’s gloppy, while I typically get a full week’s worth of wear (and just minor tip wear).

Peche Nacree is peachier and darker than Chanel Django. It is also rather similar to MAC’s Seasonal Peach, actually–just the finish is different and it is less pink.  I found two coats to be perfect for color opacity and general look and feel.  The brush strokes in this shade are less noticeable than in Black Pearl but more than Pearl Drop.

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 6/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

FINAL THOUGHTS: It’s warm without being yellow orange, so it should suit both warm and cooler skin tones. I imagine it will lean pinker against cooler, pinker toned skin, than the warmer peach it is against my warmer skin tone.

WHERE TO BUY: Nordstrom

    Oh Chanel, why do you do these things to me?! Oh Christine why do you post these things?! :)

    On another note, I went to Sephora to ask when the new Chanel collection would arrive and got some pretty funny looks which pissed me off to no extent. Is this what it feels like to be a beauty junkie? Again, I’m placing the blame squarely on you Christine! :D

      I don’t believe Sephora carries Chanel cosmetics (only their perfume). I wish they did!

        Here in Portugal (Europe as well) they do. They have the usual counter you can find in shops. I bought Mademoiselle lipstick there as well as the Nouvelle Vague nail lacquer.

    Looks kinda like NARS orgasm nail polish to me. I think NARS might be more sheer. Pretty color!
