I wasn’t looking for another red nail polish, but Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish 749 Sailor got my attention at Nordstrom Chanel counter. Did they really make something new, original? A red nail polish that I didn’t try before?
The color is classic red without shimmer. Not too pink, not too orange. What makes it special is a jelly-like texture which gives a contemporary feel. One coat looks like a juicy red-pink. Two coats look like classic red with a jelly finish.
Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish 749 Sailor turned out to be not so longwear as stated. It lasted 2-3 days without chipping. Maybe using a base and topcoat is gonna help.
What I like about Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish 749 Sailor is the versatile color that can be worn with all kinds of outfits. What I dislike is the application process. The texture is transparent but dries out too fast. I don’t have enough time to spread it evenly. I had to add some no color nail polish in the bottle to achieve a more fluid texture.
