Enter Chanel Le Vernis Vertigo 563 nail polish, a beautiful deep purpley brown grey black. How’s that for a color description?
This photo does not do the color justice – it is a chameleon that changes as the light changes. In all respects, though, it looks sophisticated, fun, and yes, just a slight bit different than a straight ahead black creme.
These three polishes together are a beautifully cohesive collection – a nail polish wardrobe if you will. If you purchase no other nail colors but these three, you could survive quite happily.
Vertigo 563 applied beautifully, and could actually be a one-coat color. I prefer to cover up my application flaws with a second coat, however, so this is two coats. There is the ever-so-subtle Chanel shimmer, which is visible in the bottle and not at all visible on the nail. As with most of the Chanel shimmers, it adds a depth to the color that gives the polish a luxurious shine.
I personally feel that a color like Vertigo is more than office appropriate, but be sure to know your office environment.
Chanel Le Vernis Vertigo 563 is available for US $26 at Chanel boutiques and on chanel.com.
