Chanel Le Vernis - Dragon #475

I've written about Chanel polishes before, so I won't go into too much detail here. The formula on Dragon really is pretty bad - I don't think I've ever gotten more than four days without noticeable chipping. I haven't been impressed with Chanel's formula in general and Dragon's is the worst. But I've never found such a perfect red in a brand with better wear so I deal.

This photo was taken after two days of wear. This was a one-coat rushed manicure but you can still see the tipwear and scratches that I just don't get while wearing other brands with the same topcoat and basecoat combination.

I love this particular polish because of the unique shade and the good memories associated with it...but I do think it's disgraceful that Chanel charges so much for a functionally inferior product. With all the beauty innovation and resources at their disposal I'd expect much better. If anyone has any suggestions for the same color made by another brand, please do let me know!

Chanel Dragon is $26.00 at


  1. Gorgeous color! I agree with you, some if not all of Chanel polishes could be of better quality for the price but their colors are fabulous. I do believe Avon has a dupe of this, I may even have it! I think it's Real Red. Their formulas are quite surprising, very good quality for such a low price & every season they come out with the fashionable colors of the moment and are super cheap. :D

    1. Ooh, I'll have to check it out! Thank you!

  2. I like the Chanel red all the time~~~ it's pure~
