Chanel released 3 new limited edition Le Vernis shades for Spring 2015, but only 1 caught my eye… today I’d like to introduce you to Chanel Le Vernis Paradisio (645).
Chanel Le Vernis Paradisio (645) is a pearlescent silvery green. The green is so pale and the pearl finish is so strong that Paradisio turns champagne under tungsten lighting, and plain silver under indoors artificial lighting. But the green comes through under sunlight.
The problem I had with Paradisio was the visible brush-strokes when dried, and this is a problem that I consistently face with such pearlescent polishes. Also, the formula is slightly sheer… 2 coats gave me decent coverage, but it took 3 coats for the green to manifest properly.
Despite the issues, Paradisio is a really lovely color, one that I find very unique and so spring-appropriate! I also found Paradisio to last surprisingly long on me, a phenomenon that seems to indicate Chanel has been quietly improving its formula. Lets just hope they improve the brush design soon too!
How do you feel about pearlescent nail polishes? Do visible brush strokes bother you?
