Rouge Puissant (528) has been in Chanel’s Le Vernis Longwear lineup for a while now, but I only just got around to picking it up (yay SDM points!). It’s actually a little boring, but I am probably just saying that because I have a lot of red nail polish, and there are many that I prefer. Rouge Puissant runs medium-deep. Under bright light, it appears to be quite a bright medium red, but in dimmer light it looks like a significantly deeper shade. It looks medium in my swatches due to the light.
The red itself is a fairly true red, leaning a smidge to the blue side. That’s probably why I don’t like it as much as some other reds—I tend to prefer warm tomato reds, browned reds, or vibrantly pink reds. I think Rouge Puissant would be really classy on someone with cool- to neutral-toned skin.
Oh, and if you’re wondering, puissant means powerful, important, influential in English (I did not know that!); it means the same thing in French. “Powerful Red” it is.
Like a cool rush of frosty winter air, this month’s nail collection is the refreshing update your party look has been longing for. The glistening cool tones and jewel-inspired dark hues exude arctic-chic with every toast and every shimmy on the dance floor.
Mix a couple of this month’s cool polish shades for a fierce & frozen palette.

Summer may be winding down soon, but the future looks brighter than ever. This month’s illuminated collection captures the beaming energy of the season starting with the launch of our new under-eye brightener with skincare ingredients built right in. And of course, we had to round it out with a high-shimmer polish collection in saturated colors inspired by dreamy, exotic getaways to faraway lands.
Get ready to see the end of summer in a whole new light!
Shining, shimmering, splendid. This month’s glistening nail polish collection takes you on a wild ride with full-spectrum colors that capture the richness of late-summer sunsets. Go bold or go barely-there—either way, just go and see where the magic takes you.
