Chanel Sky Line Le Vernis

Chanel Sky Line Le Vernis ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as “pale and pearlescent, nearly metallic… the beauty of blue.” It’s a pale sky blue with a hint of periwinkle and threads of metallic silver-white. I couldn’t think of anything that would dupe this. Cult Nails Princess is more of a powder blue. Zoya Skylar is much darker. I haven’t reviewed it yet, but I can see that Essie Blue Rhapsody is bluer, darker.  If you have a closer dupe, I’d love to hear about it!

Chanel Suspicious Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer

Chanel Suspicious Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described simply as “fuchsia.” It’s a pinky-red–a little more red than raspberry red to me, though it seemed like it was going to be raspberry-colored based on the bottle. NARS Anardana is warmer, less red. MAC Toco Toucan is pinker. China Glaze Ahoy! is darker, more raspberry. Chanel April is dustier, less red. Butter London Blowing Raspberries is a smidgen darker, pinker.  It’s a little summery, even though it’s new for fall.

Chanel Vertigo Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer

Chanel Vertigo Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “grey-black.” I’d like to describe it as one weird color that’s impossible to describe! In the bottle, it’s like a deep, dark smoky plummy brown with bits of shimmer in it. In natural light, it’s an inky brown with a hint of gray and touch of burgundy. In bright light, it’s a plum-tinged brown with bronze and red shimmer. Cult Nails Enigmatic is redder, lighter, purpler. Rescue Beauty Lounge Recherche is purpler, more eggplant than brown. Illamasqua Baptiste is definitely purple. Chanel Paradoxal is purpler, less brown (but it’s kind of the closest in “feel”). China Glaze Bogie is duller, more purple.

Chanel Frenzy Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer

Chanel Frenzy Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “lilac grey.” It’s a light taupe with a cream finish. There’s a little brown, little gray in it. Looks like the inside of a mushroom to me (aka it’s sooo taupe!). Zoya Farah is a little darker, browner. Essie Sand Tropez is very similar but a smidgen lighter. MAC Inert is grayer, a little darker.  It’s the new nude; not beige, not mannequin hands–sophisticated and elevated. Why is taupe always so lovely? I could see this being a really nice go-to for office-appropriate nails.

Chanel Diwali Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer

Chanel Diwali Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “mix of pale gold and luminous silver.” Which would be pewter, really, except it’s more of a muted champagne gold chocked full of shimmer. The finish is metallic foil. Chanel Delight has a comparable finish but it’s very bronzy in comparison. OCC Cruising is very gold. Urban Decay Superfreak is similar but a little lighter–less golden. Dior Timeless Gold is more pewter, so it has less gold and more silver in it. China Glaze Midnight Kiss is much more golden. Illamasqua recently came out with Swinger, which I do have to review but haven’t photographed or swatched it (still in its box so no fingerprints get on it!), that may be similar as well.

Chanel Island Le Vernis

Chanel Island Le Vernis ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a pale golden beige with pink iridescence. It has a more metallic-like finish with heavily visible (and hard to control) brush strokes. It’s semi-opaque after two coats, and you could get it almost opaque with three. OCC Kava Kava is very similar in base color, though it doesn’t have the pink shimmer/flash. Urban Decay Fame is more beige. Rescue Beauty Lounge Ani is darker.
