Chanel Gold Fingers Le Vernis / Nail Lacquer

Chanel Gold Fingers Le Vernis ($28.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “semi-sheer, gilded lacquer.” It’s a slightly coppered yellow gold with darker yellow gold micro-glitter and yellow gold shimmer. China Glaze Champagne Bubbles is much yellower. SpaRitual Golden Gleam is more orange. Milani 3D is holographic and a little less orange. MAC Vice is Nice is a little more orange.

Gold Fingers is almost opaque in two coats–if you want more of a “semi-sheer” look as Chanel describes, I’d recommend just one coat.  I think it looks best with two coats, because it results in more even color coverage.  The benefit to having it be slightly metallic and chocked full of shimmer and micro-glitter is that it dries down faster than the average polish.  It has a consistency that’s just slightly watery but doesn’t seem to affect the application in any way. Chanel polishes typically last a week on me with minor tip wear but no chipping.

P.S. — I think Chanel is in a race against itself to make Le Vernis the most expensive polish on the market.
