Happy mid-week everyone! Today I’m sharing with you a polish that I fell instantly in love with the second I saw it! This is Vibrato by Chanel.
Vibrato is a deepened cobalt blue crelly. It’s from the Blue Rhythm Collection by Chanel. The formula was a bit thin and it was actually kind of sheer on the first coat. I’m not one to do thin coats so I laid this on thick but I still had visible nail line after 1 coat which you don’t usually see with blues. After 2 coats it evened out nicely. It dried flat so I added a glossy top coat.
When I first read about this polish from Michelle on her blog post, I knew I had to have it since she raved SO much about it and I did not own any Chanel polish so I thought this would be perfect. I was so so SO excited to own my first Chanel polish! But I must admit that this polish was a bit underwhelming. I was so pumped up from Michelle’s post that I expected this to be heaven in a bottle. It wasn’t. I was not a fan of the sheerness and I was not a fan of the brush either. A bit too thin for my liking. We all have different tastes though. Heaven in a bottle for me is a buttery creamy smooth one coater creme. I have swatched blues like Bright Night or Santorini which are perfect examples of heaven in a bottle polish. I just wanted this to be perfect and it wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, the color is AMAZING, but the formula, not so much.
Oh well! I’m actually considering returning it because for $27 (cost of the Chanel polish) I can buy 9 China Glaze polishes at my local beauty supply store! LOL Before I return it though, I will be doing a DUPES comparison on this one so stay tuned! Nonetheless this is a gorgeous color, it’s just the formula that didn’t do it for me.
Not all high end polishes are disappointing. I was very very impressed with Christian Louboutin’s Red and Victoria Beckham’s collab with Nails Inc. This one just happened to be a bit of a downer for me. But maybe you will love it!
Chanel Le Vernis polish is 5 FREE. They are sold at department stores like Nordstrom and Macy’s. They retail for $27 each.
What did you think of Vibrato? Do you own any Chanel polish? What is your favorite one?
