Chanel Spring 2011 Le Vernis: Black Pearl & Pearl Drop

Photobucket

Hey guys! Today I am going to do a review on the latest Chanel’s nail polishes; Black Pearl and Pearl Drop. I know I’m missing Peche Necree but I don’t know whether I want to purchase that so we’ll see! Chanel nail polishes retail for $36 and I think these wasn’t limited edition so if you still haven’t get your hands on them, go get it! I’m just worried for my wallet… Luxury nail polishes are burning a huge hole in them.

With flash. My camera wasn’t picking up the teal reflex 😦

I got Black Pearl 2 weeks ago but I didn’t get to swatch it until today. What attracted me most to this polish is that it is a gunmental colour that flashes teal, gray and blue. I love that its like a chameleon. Even though I’m not loving the frost finish and the visible brush strokes, I’m loving the colour ALOT. I feel like a rocker chick with this on!

I finally decided to get Pearl Drop because I think these two polishes deserve to be together! I literally squealed when I place them side by side on my table. LOVE THEM!!!!

Pearl Drop is an off-white cream colour with flashes of gold in them. Similar like Black Pearl, it has a frost finish with visible brush strokes! But I’m sure with practice, those visible brush strokes wouldn’t be standing in your way. I have a love-hate relationship with this… It looks so pretty in the bottle until it gets on my fingernails… LOBSTER HANDS ALERT!!!! I can picture this would look good on fair-skinned women! This colour seems so suitable for office because it looks so elegant and classy.

Application was flawless for both polishes. They tend to be sheer for the first coat but completely opaque in the second. The visible brush strokes is even more prominent in Pearl Drop so you have to be really careful during application! I love Black Pearl more than Pearl Drop because Pearl Drop doesn’t really compliment my skin tone and nails. But currently, this is my favourite pearl colour among my other ones!

Thanks for looking! 🙂
