Chanel Mysterious 601 Le Vernis – Fall 2013

Chanel Mysterious 601 Le Vernis ($27, Nordstrom.com) is a deep khaki military green. It’s a full coverage cream. Although this is a very deep shade, there’s a muted quality that prevents it from looking black on the fingers. I never thought I could love a khaki-green colored shade for the nails, but this one is quite polished and distinct looking on my fingers. Below shown with two coats.

Comparisons below to some Chanel and Dior:

My heart still belongs to Elixir from the fall collection, but Mysterious is a nice alternative to black, grey or vamps. I can’t say that Mysterious is a must-have for me, mainly because I’m usually drawn to non-green/khaki shades for nail polish. I found Alchemie unique, but for some reason, I can’t get excited about Mysterious. If you’re on the fence and trying to decide between a few select items from fall, I would say skip Mysterious and go for one of the cream blushes or lipsticks in the collection. Those are the winners in my mind.

Right now, Chanel Fall 2013 has been spotted in stores early. I found mine at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. For now, the only place I can find it online is at Nordstrom.com.

  • Vertigo looks better on nails. From this point, i dont like Chanel nail polishes for this fall. Maybe only Elixir, but i will have to see it first.

  • Easily dupable.

  • I just bought this, and I'm REALLY liking it!

  • I love your swatches, they are so helpful when I'm buying polish. I just bought this, but I found it closest to Dior Amazonia, which also works with Alchimie.

  • I am so glad that you are always so honest in your reviews, I got alchimie and was not that impressed by Mysterious either so I skipped it, I might have to go back for Elixer though its such a pretty shade for fall but it is not limted edition so no hurry. I do want do get a cream blush which one is your favorite I am having a hard time choosing lol!
