Chanel Khaki Rose Le Vernis

October 4, 2010
The Les Khakis de Chanel Le Vernis shades are growing on me even though my initial reaction was “meh”. The formula however is very impressive. You will get a full coverage application with just one coat. I find that this quality definitely makes these well worth the high price tag ($25 each). I did an extensive review and comparison post a few weeks ago Les Khakis de Chanel: Khaki Brun, Khaki Vert & Khaki Rose and finally did a full manicure with Khaki Rose, a warm coffee-with-milk type of brown. Not really something I would normally be drawn to for nails, but I like it. There’s no brand like Chanel that can capture my attention for trendy shades.

I had five nail polishes with me in my bag the other day (yes, 5) because I could not make up my mind, so I e-mailed my sister with my handy iPhone “which one should I do?” She said “thumb!” Thank goodness for sisters.

    Khaki Rose looks gorgeous on you! I don't have any Chanel polishes, mostly because of the price, but you always make them look amazing! 🙂

    Would you mind telling me the name/brand of the blue nail polish on your index finger (from the picture you took with iphone)? Thanks!

    Hi Sabrina,

    On you it looks very sophisticated, soft neutral color. Cannot imagine though someone with cool toned skin pulling off this color.

  • jbrobeck October 4, 2010 at 8:21 am

    Oh no, I only bought Khaki Vert, I thought I could live without the others… but this looks great on you!

  • Jess October 4, 2010 at 8:23 am

    I agree that Chanel makes the most beautiful trend shades when it comes to nail polishes! Khaki Rose is just awesome!

    I doubt, this collection will be available here in Austria though. :/

    Ok, when you swatched this before, it was my favorite in the collection, now I think I definitely need it!

    Thanks so much for picturing it next to Particuliere, I was wondering how close they were, but they are in totally different families, so I can justify this purchase 🙂

    Gorgeous looks like the perfect shade of brown for me. I just did a mani with brown liked it but too dark. This one is def the right one.

  • Cristina October 4, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    Hey Sabrina! Gorgeous color on you! I'm so glad I picked up all three. Btw…do you get professional manicures?(cuticle removed, etc.) your nails are beautiful:)

  • Estelle October 4, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    That color does look sensational on you! What were the other colors on your tester iPhone hand?

  • lexi920 October 4, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    YES – the thumb wins! That's great neutral color. It's right up my alley. I bet it would look like a darker version of RBL's Grunge on me.

  • tasha~ October 5, 2010 at 1:29 am

    I think this polish looks amazing with you skintone; its a great sophisticated fall look!

  • hermetic October 6, 2010 at 1:04 pm

    looks lovely! what is the blue-ish color on your index finger in that first pic?

  • Sabrina October 7, 2010 at 1:41 am

    I'm still short on time ladies, thank you for stopping by. I'll address the questions:

    L to R on my hand are Chanel Trapeze, Chanel Cosmic Violine, Chanel Strong, Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy, Chanel Khaki Rose. Note that this was taken with a camera phone. I don't want to hear anyone tell me how crappy this picture is.

    Cristina – I do both.
