Chanel – Vertigo

This little gem was given to me by my wonderful sister, who picked this up in New York the day it was released. I just got my hands on it and couldn’t wait to show you guys. This Chanel is one of three in the Collection Les Essentials De Chanel and its sister polishes are Frenzy and Suspicious. Below you can see an image of the stand I recently spotted.


Vertigo is a dark, deep and rich purple. So deep, its almost black. In the bottle you can clearly see a shimmer which sadly does not translate onto the nail. That is a real shame. In direct sunlight it is clearly purple. It is hard to categorise but I believe that is part of its charm.

Anyway, pictures!

Formula on this was great, what you see above are two average coats. Drying time was good and coverage was excellent. It dries well without streaks and is self levelling. I base coated with Essie all-in-one and top coated with Seche Vite.

Chanel polishes are available in department stores and large Boots stores in the UK, you can also purchase them via In the US, you can buy them in department stores or direct from Retail price is £18 and Les Essentials De Chanel is out now.

So, what do you think? I think its a great colour, can be work appropriate and can also be jazzed up with a slick coat of glitter (my curent fav way of glamming up a day old mani). Any of the new colours catch your eye?
