Chanel Le Vernis Vertigo 563 nail polishI think that black nail polish is a bit like black shoes, in that you can never really have too many.

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.

Chanel Le Vernis Vertigo 563 is part of the Fall 2012 Les Essentiels de Chanel collection, along with Le Vernis Frenzy 559 (a light greige) and Le Vernis Suspicious 561 (a vibrant berry pink).

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
