Chanel Infidèle Le Vernis

Chanel Infidèle Le Vernis is a beautiful mauve pink rose. It’s my favorite of the three Fashion’s Night Out polishes. The color is richly pigmented. I love that it seems to bring the fingers to life. It’s an intense pink but still demure. I like that it’s different from many of the bright pinks Chanel likes to create for the nails (ala Riviera, Rose Insolent, Rose Exhuberant etc.). It’s listed as limited-edition and retails for $26. I think it’s a must-have.

Here it is swatched on me with two coats:

Close up of the nail wheel:

Some nail swatches on the fingers, on the nail wheel (two posts before) Infidèle looks like a close dupe Rose Confidentiel. On the fingers side by side, you can see the difference. Rose Confidentiel is more beigey and a more peachy pink while Infidèle is cooler-toned and more mauve.

A few other blogs/photos that I loved of this shade: Lana Danilova, AudreyEleven, Peanut Buttered, The Purse Forum – Chanel on your nails, Weekend Ramblings. Bottom line: love this color. I don’t have any of the lipsticks yet, I’m still waiting for Nordstrom Seattle to receive their FNO shipment 🙂

    That's an incredibly beautiful colour, especially with your skin tone. I also love Chanel's Fantastic too!

    You got the color perfectly in your photos..mine turned out a little more darker than this. LOVE this shade. Pinks usually tend to make my fingers look darker..this just brightens them. I didn't pick any of the lip colors, though..was very tempted to, but none of the Rouge Allures seem to work for me – even the newer versions 🙁

    Really lovely! I thought at first I might pass on this one, but it does look beautiful and very flattering 🙂

    That is such a pretty color! I think it's really similar to Sephora by OPI – ByoBoy .. Thanks for the swatches always a great job!

    Thank you for this post! I initially thought that I wanted La Délicate but it seems that L'Infidele is the one that stole my heart – I've placed a reservation on this twinset! 🙂
