Nail Trends: Chanel Goes Purple for Spring 09
With all the co-motion from the hot new Moscou collection, this little guy was just screamin' to get noticed! And, darnit I took notice!
For Spring, Chanel introduces two new nail polishes - Django, pinkish peach shimmer and Vendetta, a blue purple with blue and pink shimmer.
Chanel's promo images of Vednetta appeared to be basically a Blurple (Blue + Purple). So, I wouldn't quite classify Vendetta as a true Blurple like say, OPI's Play til Midnight and neither a "true purple" because there's definitely blue in there. Did I confuse ya yet? Colors can be so confusing sometimes, yet so fun!
So, is it dupeable? Probably. I have to sort through my Purple's which may take some time considering there's about 300 of them. And I'm not exaggerating with that number. Purple is a shade I just can't resist, obviously! lol
Bottom Line - Vendetta is hot! After wearing it whole day, I felt - well chanely. Because after all, Chanel's nail polish is probably the closest thing to feeling rich and luxurious without breaking my bank. And, Honestly I think that's why alot of us love the polish so much. It's Chanel for cryin' out loud!
Have a good night peeps! Any takers?

I love this one! WHEN does it come out? I just ordered two of the Moscow ones, the gold and blue. The gold one looks very olive green-y, which is my fav, so I am super excited!

I really love this one too! The spring collections should be hitting makeup counters soon - I'd call your local one first. But, in the meantime this should be available online. I ordered mine at the boutique in Chicago along with my Moscou's. :)

Hi, I'm a new reader here. :) I just wanted to say thanks so much for your pics/coverage on this color. I am a crazy purple nail polish fanatic and I have been waiting forever for Chanel to come out with a purple and this looks like the purple of my dreams! I just ordered one and it should be here by X-mas! woo! I might need a back-up!

I am on the fence about this one. It looks so pretty but I never end up wearing any of the purples that I have unless they are vampy. And this one isn't really vampy. I think once I file my nails down a bit I'll warm up to this color :)

Bought this just before x-mas. Nice color, a tad darker than what I was hoping for/expecting, but still a great purple. Anyone who is a purple lover will adore it!

I like how this polish looks in your pictures. But, when I paint my nails, it comes out really dark, almost black-ish. How did you get it so light and shimmery?
