It's not yet July, and summer is just starting here, but in the world of makeup it's already autumn! While I was waiting for the Bombay Express collection from Chanel (which is currently available online), pieces from the fall 2012 collection - Les Essentiels de Chanel - were already available at Nordstrom. Thanks to their fabulous (and free) shipping service, I got a few of the products. My favorite is the Chanel nail polish - Vertigo.
Vertigo is a dark reddish-brownish grey - so dark it's almost black. There is a fine shimmer scattered throughout the polish, but had I not read about this in other blogs I would have never known. The polish looks a dull, dark grey in the bottle, and I was a bit disappointed when I saw it. On my nails, it goes on a creamy, dark grey with undertones of maroon and brown. There is no sparkle or shimmer visible (very typical of so many Chanel polishes), but it does give a depth and complexity to the color and makes it just so beautiful.
