After the disappointment of Riva (too watery and insipid), I’ve now given the nail polishes from the Les Perles collection a test run. I’m not sure what’s up with Chanel right now, but they’ve never got back on form nail-wise since Jade. I do like Pearl Drop – a golden pearl, but Black Pearl just isn’t doing it for me in the way I expect from Chanel. Certainly, pearlised greys have been done better – this one almost has greenish undertones. I’ve swatched both above (excuse the dreadful state of cuticles but it’s for colour information, not to admire my manicure!). I’d really like to see Chanel pull another Rouge Noir out of the hat – it’s high time. Noticing the trend for nail foils, though, it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s their next move – and that really would be something!
