Chanel — Émeraude (Le Vernis Longwear) Swatch & Review

Collection: Chanel 2016 Summer, Dans La Lumière de l’Été

Over the summer, Chanel released some polishes in their new Le Vernis Longwear line, and I chose to pick up Émeraude (536), a deep, emerald green shimmer with veins of soft, yellow gold superfine shimmer running through it. The gold gives Émeraude a warm olive tone on top of the more neutral dark green base.

This would have been perfect as a winter release, wouldn’t it?

The formula is excellent and two coats gives perfect coverage. (You can find a more extensive review of the Longwear product in my review of Gitane.)

I normally avoid olive greens, but this is neutral—and vampy—enough that I think it works very well with my skintone. I love that this shade is vampy but still clearly green; I’ve tried enough vampy greens that just look dusty black!

Émeraude might be limited edition, though it is still available the last time I checked a Chanel counter (at Shoppers Drug Mart; I forgot to look the last time I passed it at Hudson’s Bay) and online at Chanel.
