I absolutely love this nail polish, I didn't use a base coat or top coat and it looked absolutely fantastic and lasted really well. The appearance of this is very unusual, it is very hard to photograph the colour like it is in real life. It is a tarnished metallic olive goldy colour, though can sometimes look a bit silvery! There are some dupes out there however this is a lovely quality nail varnish, and I'm not really sure dupes would dry as quick, last as long or have the same unique tarnished look. After this polish I am definitely a Chanel convert! Unfortunately this varnish is no longer available in stores.
