Nails of the Day: Chanel – Lotus Rouge

This is the one and only Chanel nail polish I’ve ever owned… I got it as a Christmas present a few years ago and it’s still going strong.

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour Lotus Rouge (455) is a dark blood red colour which looks fab in the cooler months and is flattering to lots of skin tones. Due to the blue undertones in it, it even works for very pale skin which can sometimes find reds hard to pull off. For some reason I keep likening my nail polishes to food recently…. so just to keep up the tradition, this reminds me of tomato chutney!

The brush is fairly thin – personally I prefer a wider brush, although this does help to be able to get right to the edges of the nail accurately. I painted this on yesterday and while it mainly looks good, there is a slight bit of wear to the tip of the nail. In general I find it takes a couple of days for any chips to appear, which on my nails, is the sign of a good nail polish!

Do you like it? Which other Chanel polishes would you recommend to me?
