Chanel Le Vernis Imperial (#469)

Chanel Le Vernis nail polish in Imperial might be my favorite color for the season (at least for the next five minutes). It doesn't match the Rouge Allure Laque by the same name (unlike Ming or Coromandel), but it's a beautiful brown with just a hint of plummy red undertone. The texture is creamy and takes a little too long to dry, but the beautiful finish is worth it. Two coats over a Zoya base is all it takes for the perfect look. Now, if I could only stop messing up my nails in all sorts of freak accidents...

Chanel Le Vernis in Imperial #469 ($23) is a relatively new (here in the US. I think it's been available overseas for quite a while) addition to the regular line and there's no indication it might be a limited edition. Available from your favorite department stores and I bought it at Saks.

Photos by me.


  1. Ahhh, first the beautiful Jade Collection, now this! I saw this shade at my counter when I went hunting for the Jades (annoyingly not here in the Great White North yet...) and was curious about such a true Brown. What a perfect fall shade.

  2. Sorry for the OT but I was wondering if you could recommend any anti wrinkle eye serum for prevention purposes? I have oily-sensitive skin. Thanks a bunch. Also this shade looks awesome, but I am still not over Jade :)

  3. I really love this shade and am usually not a fan of browns. Gorgeous pictures! Thanks for posting these.
