Chanel Bohemian Fantasy Vendetta & Django Le Vernis Swatches & Review


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.

I love love love Vendetta!! The color is amazing. The one thing though I HATE about Chanel np is that it is chiptastic. I personally think the quality sucks, especially for the price. I am surprised you have such good luck with it! You are like 1 out of 100 people I think, lucky! I wish Chanel worked so well for me.

So far the Chanel nail polishes I’ve had have been exceptionally unworthy the price (Rose Flamme and Black Satin). The staying wasn’t very good and it wasn’t easy and smooth to apply. Plus Black Satin has become thick super quickly. It was a real waste of money. Even if I’m French, I really prefer American nail polishes. Their power staying is stronger, they’re more shiny, there are more colors for any kind of style. More sexy. 🙂

Vendetta is CRAZY GORGEOUS. When I first saw the midnight blue polish, I went crazy for it and i swear by this nail polish but Vendetta color, I NEED to have it!

I was just like you! The staying power is great, I just think that OPI stays better on me. Plus, I wish it was a little less blue and more winey. Still, I love it! It will always have a place in my heart.

OPI Play ‘Til Midnight is a similar shade to Vendetta – it doesn’t have glitter but it does have that amazing indigo purple tone with a touch of sheen.

oh Christine, you enabler you! I love dark polishes and especially purples – thank goodness I found a Neiman-Marcus free shipping coupon code (WINTER) that was still good 😉 it pays to utilize one’s google-fu when splurging on $23 nail polish!!

I bought both of these as well as the Moscou collection, literally as soon as they came out on the website. I got them before Christmas and actually have been using Django the most. I have always had a hard time finding a neutral pink based nude that had shimmer in it, but not enough to be ‘pearly’ if that makes sense….

I love Django because it has shimmer in it, but it is more creamy and applies really well. The color is also perfect. I also love it because I can wear it in uniform.

Django and Feu de Russie are the clear winners to me. I think I will have fun with Vendetta as well – I used it a couple times, but right now I’m gearing up to leave the country anyway and won’t be using nail polish for a year and a half! I will come home to all new stuff, but I will literally love Django and Vendetta, as well as the Moscou polishes…forever!

Then again, I say that about every Chanel polish and I now have 24…LOL

I was [] that close to getting Vendetta from my local Chanel counter but the lady there was so rude to me that I refused to buy it. I still long for it though…

Maybe I’ll get it when I go out of town next week. 😉

*sigh* I just got my Vendetta last Friday and finally had a chance to paint my nails today – it’s beautiful! I love dark, deep shades and I can tell already I’m going to wear this one often! Thanks again, Christine!

I’ve found a Dupe for this!!! And it’s 8.95 !!!! check them out at overallbeauty.com BB couture. For more details check out Katee on e-polishblog Shes awesome. I have my Vendetta on order so I’ll have 2!! Yaaaayyy

I got Vendetta few days ago! Amazing color, it does not sparkle,but it has a beautiful shine. I’m satisfied with this purchase. There’s no chance to compare it with OPI or something.
