this post is long overdue, but i guess that i love this polish so much that i was never really happy with the pictures. i gave up now, so i present you the amazing chanel black pearl, from their 2011 spring collection.
this polish is not your typical grey polish, and not only because of the gorgeous green-teal microshimmer that runs through it. for me, it is elegant and edgy at the same time. since the finish is metallic, it is a bit brushstrokey.
this is, by far, my most used chanel, so i decided to bring it back home because i don't want to be tempted to wear it for a while (it's discontinued). i also have the best dupe out there, catrice captain sparrow's boat, and i was using this one heavily too. of course it's also discontinued :(
i made sooo many pictures of this one, and honestly, i think it's beauty is not really transferable to photos.
i used base (opi start to finish) + two layers of polish + top coat (essence better than gel nails top sealer BTGNTS).
