CHANEL is out with two new, limited-edition shades of Le Vernis. Magic, like the sky at daybreak blue and Cosmic, a dense black sparkling with blue and silver pearl are both steeped in elegance and mystery.
Like every CHANEL nail polish release, I’ve been stalking the Nuit Magique Collection for months. I first saw pictures of the impending release this summer, as Cosmic and Magic were part of the Fashion’s Night Out release in Europe and in other countries. “FNO” was cancelled in the United States and therefore we didn’t get the release. Until now.
Cosmic is black with a silver micro-shimmer. It’s really a gorgeous shade. What I love is that the shimmer is discreet enough that it doesn’t jump out you. I compared it to Steel, which is more gray-toned. Cosmic is a good choice to add to your collection.
Magic is a medium-blue-teal shade that looks similar to Blue Rebel (from the Les Jeans de Chanel Nail Colours Collection released on FNO), but is a bit “brighter” and slightly more teal in my opinion. I think if you can wear a blue nail polish, this is a great shade; not too light, not too dark so as to be almost black. I didn’t swatch Magic because I’m so self-conscious about wearing blues; they just don’t look good with my coloring.
CHANEL Cosmic and Magic are limited-editions and available exclusively at CHANEL.com. Are you planning to purchase?
