Review: Chanel Velvet Top Coat

Chanel velvet top coat - discontinued

This is my absolute favorite nail polish! It was a Christmas present, and I love it so much. It's no longer available because it was limited edition, so I try to be frugal with it..

But let's be honest - it's not happening.

I use it over every. single. color.

I might cry the day I run out. Or the day I've used it so much to where it starts getting thick and sticky - IT HAPPENS!


This isn't even a review. It's more of a "If I could marry this, I would" post.


Okay, but being serious now. It is a clear top coat (I thought it was a black top coat until I opened it), and it just makes your nails feel really smooth and soft - like velvet!

 I don't usually use it over a black, I tend to wear more pastel colors and it looks really good over those. Sometimes I'll put a thin glitter top coat over them and then put the Chanel top coat over that and that gives it a really cools effect, because you can still see the shininess of the glitter, but the nail is still completely matte!

But I am completely dreading the day that it's gone, and hoping more brands will have their own velvet top coat by then.

Do you know any other brands that make a velvet top coat? Also, what is your favorite top coat/ effect for nails??

I came across your blog on another blog & I love it! Revlon does their own matte top coat that's in a clear nail polish bottle but I'm loving how your Chanel one looks!

I love this! I'm so gutted that it's limited edition. I'm on the hunt for one from another brand.
