Chanel Le Vernis Fracas Nail Colour is a new shade for spring 2013 from the Printemps Precieux Collection.
There are actually three nail colour shades in this collection (also included are Emprise and Accessoire), but this one spoke to me. It spoke volumes once I saw the shimmer inside.
Plus the $30.00 price tag didn’t exactly lend itself to buying all three at the time!
Fracas is a bright pink with slight peachy tones. Inside there is really pretty but subtle pink and gold shimmer. It’s a nice thick polish, but not hard to work with. Nary a streak or problem in sight, and I only used two coats. Very spring and summer-like, love it.
Overall: I don’t buy all Chanel Nail Colours because A. I’m not a billionaire and B. They don’t all appeal to me, but when I do see one that makes my heart pound a bit, I don’t really mind the price. Of course if they lowered it to $10.00 I wouldn’t complain AT ALL.
Availability: Bloomingdales, Chanel, Nordstrom.
Pricing: $30.00 for 0.4 oz.
What say you about Fracas? Yes, no, maybe so?
Note: I don’t think Chanel is cruelty free but not positive.
