Chanel Quartz Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer

Chanel Fall 2011:  Quartz Le Vernis

Chanel Quartz Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is described as a “silver beige.” This is shade that is difficult to describe. In natural light, it tends to look like a champagne beige with threads of silver shimmer. In brighter and more direct light, it looks like a beige-taupe with multi-colored shimmer and a metallic, silver, shimmer. This is a more office-friendly shade as comapred to the other two shades in the fall collection.

I used two coats, and it seemed a touch sheer but manageable. For me, the formula didn’t apply quite as evenly as I would have liked, but it wasn’t particularly troublesome. In the past, Chanel polishes have tended to last about a week on my nails with some minor tip wear (with a base/top coat).

It reminded me of Illamasqua Bacterium, which is a yellower brown.

For something that's work-safe but still has some oomph, Quartz is a nice shade. It is that mix of beige, taupe, champagne, and then all that multi-colored shimmer, which makes it more interesting than a beige cream.
