Vendetta Le Vernis

In my earlier Chanel Bohemian Fantasy Review, I mentioned I was going to review and feature the nail polishes separately–and here it is! The reason why I wanted to separate it out is because…

If there is just ONE nail polish you buy this spring season, make it VENDETTA LE VERNIS ($23.00).

Vendetta is this amazing shade of dark, jewel-toned purple that looks purple and reflects such a seductive shade of violet when the light hits it, it just cannot be overlooked. The shimmer level is fantastic; it’s noticeable and adds dimension without being frosty or gritty.

I’ve always been a big fan of Le Vernis, because I find my nails do not chip, and the polish wears really well. I don’t find a need to touch-up, and I can wear Le Vernis on my nails for at least week without feeling like I need to re-do.

Poor Django! Vendetta completely outdoes it in every way imaginable except, perhaps, how wearable it is. You can wear Django anywhere: the office, work events, school, etc. It’s a creamy, pale peach-beige shade. It’s very pretty, don’t get me wrong! It’s just not as eye-catching as Vendetta. I love me a good work-safe polish color, but Vendetta has stolen my heart.
