Chanel QUARTZ 525 Le Vernis Nail Colour Swatches & Review

Chanel Peridot was so amazing, I had to go ahead and purchase her cousins, Quartz and Graphite.

Chanel Quartz Le Vernis Nail Colour doesn't look like much in the bottle. But ON.. well that is a whole other story!






I did a couple different shots of this.. some show the base color better, some show the AWESOME micro-shimmer better. The very last shot is in natural light with no flash. You can click to enlarge.

What makes Quartz so unique is the micro-shimmers. The base color is just a tan, glowy type of shade. Blah on it's own. It NEEDS those shimmers. When you angle your hands in the sun it will take your breath away.

The application was even, 3 coats, however a bit streaky.

I think Chanel does polishes well, particularly FALL polishes. Chanel Quartz Le Vernis Nail Colour is new for the Fall 2011 Collection and retails for $25. It is available now at Chanel.com as well as online at department store websites. It will be a permanent part of the line.

DEFINITELY Peridot! Quartz is permanent, so you can always get it later on. If the green isn't your thing then Graphite is beautiful. But if you can only get one, go for Peridot!

Those shimmers are beautiful. I may have to pick up Quartz eventually. Right now I'm quite content with Graphite and Peridot ;-)

I just wasn't wowed by these. I'm much more content with my Particuliere after wanting it for so long!
