Chanel Provocation Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a deep, purple burgundy with a cream finish. The polish applied flawlessly without bubbling, streaking, or pooling along the edges. It had a nicely balanced consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it was fully opaque in two coats and spread evenly across the nail. I typically get a week of wear out of Chanel’s lacquer formula with minor tip wear but no chipping. I believe this shade was previously released, as well, so you may have it in your stash. Urban Decay Wrecked is darker. MAC Purple Majesty is darker. MAC Blueblood is also darker. Chanel Accessoire is a bit darker, less purple. Rescue Beauty Lounge Drifter is nearly the same. China Glaze Velvet Bow is redder. Zoya Anja is very similar, slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Starlet Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a warm-toned, coral with a hint of pink and a subtle pearl. I think this shade may be particularly flattering on cooler complexions, as it really pulls an odd red tone out of my warmer complexion. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it was opaque after I applied two coats. It was easy to apply, and I didn’t have any trouble with the color streaking or bubbling. Butter London Trout Pout was the only shade that was really similar that I could think of, though it’s warmer. China Glaze Pink Plumeria is several shades darker and pinker. See comparison swatches.
