Chanel’s Black Pearl Nail Polish Swatch

Chanel Black Pearl Nail Polish Swatch
Chanel’s Black Pearl has caused the usual fervor over a new Chanel. As part of the Spring Collection, it promises to sell out relatively soon.

I have to be honest, even though I kept hearing how much green was in this, I still really wanted this polish to have more black or dark grey than green (more like the Estée Lauder Wild Storm, but a few shades darker).

About 95% of the time it looks like this, a dark greyed jade green, which is very pretty. There is some shimmer, it is very subtle, even for a Chanel, and I have to look very closely to see it.

    You're both very sharp in your analysis of the tone of black we're dealing with here. Most people can't distinguish between such hues, and our clients at get confused all the time on issues that are about subtle shades of color. That being said, I have to say I would love to see more women trying this darker approach to nail color.

    Ok – I'll be honest – I do NOT like this shade. It looks like a dull grey to me in almost any picture I see, and I don't even want to try it. I like the OPI black polish much better…
