|Wearing Chanel Le Vernis Black Satin on my nails.|
And that's a piece of yumminess from See's Candies.
On to the color itself, I have read reviews describing Chanel Black Satin as a true deep dark black with the trademark Chanel shimmer mixed in - the sort of shimmer that you have to look for in the bottle but won't show up on the hand and just adds a beautiful depth to the color. Sounds mysterious, deosn't it? Except the polish I have has no shimmer anywhere - not on my hand, not in the bottle.
I would describe Chanel Nail Polish Black Satin as a true black, deep, dark, and inky, with no visible shimmer to it. It's a creamy black nail polish. Two coats gives me flawless, opaque coverage. The formula is quite thin and easy to apply. The finish is glossy, creamy, and opaque, and the color does have a lovely depth and richness to it. As with any dark nail polish, but perhaps more so with black, the glossiness that comes with a fresh manicure dulls quite easily (needing a little help from a top coat in a day or two if you really want the gloss). For a dark color, this dries quite fast, but I would still wait an hour two to avoid any accidental dents and chips. The color seems to suit a whole lot of skin tones, and I think it looks best on nails that are just a teeny bit long - stubby, short, black nails look too goth, imo.

So, yes, Chanel Black Satin nail polish is a beautiful color, but it does need a lot of patience and a lot of love to carry off.
