For Vogues Fashion Night Out 2013, Chanel released two limited edition polishes in celebration of the richness and depth of couture. Magic and Cosmic, the two special colours were only available to buy on VFNO so I had to make sure that Cosmic came home to live with me.
Cosmic is a rich black gloss with blue and silver micro glitter sparkles. As I have been having a love affair with black nail polishes recently, I thought that Cosmic would be better suited to me than the dazzling blueness of Magic. Chanel polishes aren’t known for their quality, however they are loved for their delicious and extravagant colours that you don’t see being made by any other brands. Cosmic is no exception. The black is the blackest of blacks and the micro glitter is so small that it is almost unnoticeable however it is multi-faceted so in different lights you can see the sparkles in their different shades.
I painted my nails on Thursday using my usual base coat, and I needed three coats of Cosmic for a fully opaque finish. I also used Seche Vite top coat. Its now Saturday and I have no chips and very minor tip wear. I’m not sure if this is due to the top coat or maybe the glitter within the polish is helping to adhere it better however it is lasting a lot longer than my other Chanel polishes. (Please excuse the state of my hands and nails in this pic, I’ve been at work and my hands get so dry!)
With it being special edition, it is no longer available for purchase however if you are prepared to pay silly money, you can find it on eBay, from £30 upwards.
