Chanel Le Vernis Accessoire: Review, Pics, Swatches

The weather was making a mockery of my spring pastels so I was delighted to pull out Accessoire, which is part of Chanel's Printemps Precieux collection for spring. So strong are my associations for the brand that I'm always compelled to photograph Chanel beside pearls - I don't even realise I'm doing it! These photos are obviously no different but let's just look past that for now and concentrate on this really gorgeous oxblood shade.

Unlike the other two shades in this collection, Accessoire is not your typical spring shade. Beside Fracas, a warm pink, and the pearly nude of Emprise, this looks altogether darker and more edgy. It's similar to my first Chanel nail polish love, Rouge Noir, but there's more brown to Accessoire, and I think the finish is glossier, too.

As for the formula, Temptalia called it 'head-to-toe luxury–fantastic ...with opaque color in two coats', and I woudn't dare to argue. I found this incredibly easy to work with, it was opaque in two coats and it lasted the guts of a week. I'm smitten.

The imperfect application is all me - don't blame the Chanel!

Tell me, because I'm nosy like that: what's on your nails today?
