NOTD: Chanel Limited Edition Nail Colour in Rouge Carat

Hey everyone! I can’t say I am “excited” about returning back to work tomorrow after a week long break but just thought I should do something to lift up my mood. So, I painted my nails a gorgeous hot deep red.

While wondering around BHG last week, I picked up the Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour 513 – Black Pearl after having seen them on Sophie’s site a while back (just realised that was almost a year back!). While I was there, a red varnish caught my eye and it was the the 587 – Rouge Carat. When the sales assistant told me it was limited edition, of course being me, I told her to pack one for me as well.

Personally, red isn’t really a colour I would normally wear on my fingers, in fact I never ventured into painting dark colours on my nails myself. However, being a new year, I just thought I should try it, given my recent interest into nails. So, I took my time and painted them while watching Gossip Girl Season 5.


This is my first time ever using a Chanel nail polish. I have to say I’m impressed by the formula and how easy it is to apply and it doesn’t streak, which is awesome for an amateur like me! I applied 2 coats of polish to achieve a beautiful tone as seen above. These polishes are surprisingly shiny even without my top coat. Guess my only gripe is the brush – I wish it was just a wee bit bigger making it quicker to apply the polish on. But, it’s just a teenie weenie gripe, no biggie. Still love it!

My grandma would love to see this colour on my nails during Chinese New Year! haha

Thanks for looking!
