In this period I found myself wearing more and more this nail polish: Chanel 538 Gris Obscur.

I just love how it looks: chic & minimal, perfect on every outfit and you know… with black can’ t go wrong! Black?! Not exactly, it seems to be black, but it is a unique blackened dark grey. Yes, ahah, ok… I agree, it’s almost black! Officially Chanel claims it to be a dark charcoal grey, hence the name: Gris (= grey) Obscur. It has some silver micro shimmer in the bottle, but on the nails they don’ t show at all.

What I love the most about it is the finish, I think it makes a big difference. It’ s a true satin finish, not jelly or glossy like another famous black polish by Chanel, 219 Black Satin. Gris Obscur is a stunning shade, it has the right combo color/finish ever! 2 coats for full coverage. Impressive lasting power: about a week with no base or top coat. The formula is truly the best. Last year Chanel reformulated its iconic nail polish line for longer-lasting color. Composition has been enriched with bioceramics and ceramides, to provide deep care of nails. While I didn’ t love the old formula, I can sure say that the new one is a winner, the quality is really grown!

Beauty I love:

    What a great color, it isn’t as pitch black as my goth colors back in the day, it seems to have more depth! I will be adding this to my collection!
