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.
The formula on this is insanely good! It’s thin without being watery or anything like that; just thin and extremely pigmented. One coat almost produces opaque results, but I did swatches with two coats just to be sure! The coverage is top notch, while it just applies so easily and beautifully–no pooling, bubbling, or streaking. It even has a semi-shiny finish when it dries down, though for anyone who loves a high-shine finish, I’d still opt for a top coat. I typically get a week of wear with Chanel’s formula; no chipping, just minor tip wear. Suspicious is not the most unique shade out of the three shades in the collection, but the quality is impressive.
