Black Pearl: A Love Story

Oh Chanel, how do I love thee?

Chanel constantly churns out phenomenal colors. Their cosmetics are coveted by beauty and fashion elite alike. And while most of us can't afford one of the gorgeous quilted bags, we can afford a blush, eyeshadow or nail polish. Each piece is housed in a sleek black casing with the gleaming white, interlocking Cs. Season after season, Chanel releases limited edition polish colors which just the mere mention of incites an immediate need for that polish. You don't just want it, you need it. Hence the crazy fast sell-outs (remember Jade?). Black Pearl is a need. Trust me, you need this polish. Go. Buy. It. NOW! (Seriously, before it's sold out.)

Seen first adorning the nails of the models on the Chanel runway in Paris, the blurry backstage photos of the bottle were enough to create a major buzz about the mysterious Black Pearl. I have been patiently awaiting the release of this particular color and now it's finally here! It will be available at Chanel counters in January, but you can purchase it now on

Two coats gives great coverage and the color is a perfect murky greenish black. I'm in lacquer heaven. This is totally a gift to myself. A very Merry Christmas to me!
