Chanel, Le Vernis Longwear in Rouge Puissant (528)

Chanel — Rouge Puissant (Le Vernis Longwear) Swatch & Review

Woohoo! It’s National Nail Polish Day, the city of Toronto is on a high, and today is also the Champions League Final—it kicks off in less than two hours in Madrid! I could do nothing else other than swatch a gloriously red nail polish for the blog.

 

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.
