Today's Nail of the Day is from Chanel's Spring 2011 collection, and it is a gorgeous dark shade called Black Pearl. This is one of the most beautiful polishes I have ever seen, and it really is one of those that you cannot appreciate until you see it in person/painted. I looked at photos of this online and thought "nothing special", saw it in store and thought "pretty", painted it and thought "OMFG". It's just that beautiful.
The shade truly is the color of a black pearl, so it really isn't black at all, but more of a deep grey with a subtle deep green reflect in it. This was a really hard one to photograph, because it wants to look like a solid, dull grey in photos, but I think I managed to catch a bit of the green reflect for the photo in this post.
As expected for a $23 nail polish (my first Chanel... ouch!), consistency was good and it only took 2 coats to get a nice, opaque finish. I have a feeling this is going to become a year-round staple for me!
Would you wear it?
