Second Chance Saturday – Chanel Vertigo

I’ve got another Second Chance polish for you today, one we last saw a while ago, and one that I can’t believe I haven’t worn more often.

I give you Chanel Vertigo

Formula on this was great, not quite up to the standard of the Chanel cremes.  Its a dusky purple with a subtle red shimmer within it.  The shimmer doesn’t come out to play on the nail unless its direct sunlight.  Its still quite lovely however.

From what I can see, Vertigo is still available in stores as it is part of the permanent collection and in the UK retail is about £18.

Second Chance Saturday – Chanel Vertigo

I’ve been going through my Chanel Nail Polish collection, oohing and awwing over the lovely colours in there.  So here comes another Second Chance Saturday, with Chanel Vertigo.  This was part of Les Essentials De Chanel for Fall 2012 and had two sister polishes in Suspicious (a hot pink) and Frenzy (a nude).

Its a lovely dark gray, with a ripple of red within it.  The ripple doesn’t come onto the nail in the way its visible in the bottle.  The formula is lovely, rich creamy and easy to work with.  Drying time is good and it looks great.  Dark, mysterious and forbidden.  In bright light the red does appear briefly.  Its very subtle.

Did you pick up Vertigo in 2012?  As far as I can tell, Vertigo is now part of the permanent collection and you should still be able to get hold of a bottle.  Retail in the UK is around the £18 mark and Chanel can be picked up from a number of larger department stores and good sized Boots stores.
