Chanel Rose Insolent Nail Polish is one of Chanel’s best pink nail polishes. It had been released years ago as part of Chanel’s Fall 2010 Collection. I was surprised that my local Chanel counter still had it in stock since I believe that this was a Limited Edition. Because I hadn’t bought it when it was newly released years ago, I was lucky that I was still able to buy it just recently.
Chanel describes Le Vernis:
☆ Classic and trend-defining shades in an exclusive formula that strengthens and moisturizes nails as it delivers high-shine colour.
☆ Applies evenly without streaking.
☆ All Chanel nail products are formaldehyde-free, toluene-free and DBP-free.
Chanel Rose Insolent Nail Polish
Chanel Rose Insolent nail polish is a warm, medium pink with a cream finish. It is bright, but not overly so. It has no shimmers, but has a beautiful shine. This is a shade that would work for all skin tones and undertones.
On my nails, Chanel Rose Insolent Nail Polish is a medium, bubblegum pink with a soft cream finish. Even without a top coat, it is already shiny. I didn’t apply a top coat in the photos above and below so you can see its beautiful shine.
The consistency of Chanel Rose Insolent Nail Polish is not too thin nor too thick. It applies really well as the brush glides smoothly over my nails. However, I find that there is a bit of streaking when there is not enough polish on the brush. Must remember to have enough polish on the brush to avoid a streaky application. 🙂
With just 1 coat, Chanel Rose Insolent Nail Polish is already semi-opaque. But, I need to apply 2 to 3 coats to achieve a more opaque and even color. I love that I didn’t experience any bubbles, not even one! Awesome! 😀
Chanel Rose Insolent Nail Polish dries quickly. It only takes just a few minutes to dry on my nails. Even without a top coat, it doesn’t chip easily and lasts around 4 to 5 days on my nails. With a top coat, it lasts around 5 to 6 days on me before it chips around the edges. Wow, right?
I bought my Chanel Rose Insolent nail polish for Php1, 250 at Chanel in Rustans Makati. It is very gorgeous, but the shade is not really unique. I believe that this shade is quite dupable. There are probably cheaper nail polishes out there with a similar shade. But the texture and quality of Rose Insolent is still better since it’s Chanel. 😉
I feel like this is a great color for Spring, and even more wonderful for Summer. Imagine lying around on the beach in a hot pink bikini and Chanel Rose Insolent nail polish on your nails. Just plain gorgeous!
