Chanel - Black Pearl

The name really says it all, this polish has the look of a tahitian black pearl. It's a grey base with dark green shimmer, which gives it that pearly finish, it is part of the three new shades that they introduced : Peche Nacrée, Blak Pearl and Pearl Drop. I am really wanting peche nacrée too.
This one looks a lot to the greener side in the bottle than on the nails. It is definitely not worth the 18 € I paid for it, but it is still very pretty. I think Sam from Fashion polish did a comparison with an opi. The application was great, I didn't really like the streaks, and I am not a fan of their brushes, I prefer OPI or Dior.
Here are the photos - click to enlarge.


  1. I have been debating this polish since it came out; the reviews are mixed! I think I will pass and buy something I know I will love instead. Thank you for the review :)

  2. It's pretty but I don't think it's so original to be worththe 18€. your welcome

  3. I was going to ask the same thing. I heard a lot of hype about this polish but I am not sure if it's worth it :S Any Chanel's that are a must? I haven't bought any yet

  4. I guess that the must was Paradoxal, but now there are so many dupes, and a lot cheapper.
    I will soon have Peche Nacrée and will tell you if it is worth it, and they are also putting out a new line with some kind of polish that gives your other polishes a rocky look

  5. je l'ai mais je l'ai jamais porté encore !! mais les reflets ont l'air galere a prendre en photo !
