Chanel Frenzy Le Vernis ($26 USD for .4 fl oz) is described as a "lilac grey". It is part of the CHANEL’s fall 2012 ‘Les Essentiels de CHANEL’ collection. I think its a combination of a taupe, a light grey, and mixed with a lilac almost but leans more taupe/grey. I have heard that Essie Sand Tropez is similar to this color. I don't have Sand Tropez so I'm not really sure. This color is super classy and chic. It gives you an almost nude nail without being too nude.
The packaging of Chanel polish is truly beautiful. If you like to display your nail polish this the perfect bottle to put out on display. I was really impressed with it.
The cap is similar to a Butter London nail polish in that you first have to remove the cap and then you can unscrew the actual nail polish applicator. I would prefer to just have a one step process but if the nail polish is pretty enough I will deal with it.
The polish applied very thin so I had to do three coats to make it opaque. You might be able to get away with 3 but I wanted to do 3 since it is a lighter color. The polish not apply streaky and I found it really easy to apply. I've haven't been wearing this too long but it seems like it is going to hold up well with minimal chipping.
Being that this is my first Chanel nail polish I am really happy with it. I prefer to spend more money on a color that I know I will wear a lot. This is so neutral that I know I will get a lot of wear out of it. I ordered mine online from Nordstrom's. I know that this is an expensive nail polish but I think its a great one for everyone to add to their collection. It has gotten a lot of hype recently and I think its worth the hype for sure. The color and formula are great. What are some of your favorite Chanel nail polishes?
