Back to my review. It's the only polish in the last year of being a nail blogger that I have worn repeatedly since receiving it because it is just so stunning. It goes with absolutely everything and has, I like to think, a real sophistication to it. (Dark red feels so grown up). With two coats, at a glance from a distance you would probably think it black - closer up you can see the red tint to it. (As the name Rouge Noir suggests, it's a red black. Is black red a different colour?)
As you would expect (and hope) from a Chanel nail polish, it paints smoothly and has great pigment. With one coat it's a little bit streaky but you can see the red - two coats gives it the blackness and total opacity. It dries quickly and is so shiny! The photos below show just two coats, without a top coat.
Have you ever come across Chanel Rouge Noir? What do you think of it? Have you got a favourite red you like to wear?
