Good morning lovelies & Happy Sunday! Today is a really exciting edition of Swatch Sunday because I’ve been sharing a polish from my Mom’s nail polish stash I’ve been dreaming of getting my hands on: Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour 513 Black Pearl.

I looked this shade up online, & found posts about it all the way back to 2010. Sadly it looks like it has been discontinued, although I did see more than a few listings for it on EBay if you’re dying to get your hands on this shade.

For my swatches I did my base, 2 coats of colour, & finished off everything with top coat (Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat).

Black Pearl is a dark steel grey shimmer which has this very pretty dark teal shimmer that comes through in certain light. It’s very, very pretty & very perfect for this Fall weather. The formula was kind of thin on the first application, but the second coat definitely levels things out for perfect application. & even though this is the kind of polish that you think would be slightly streaky, I avoided too many brush strokes.

This is definitely the kind of shade I find myself drawn to as the days get cooler–darker shades that capture the Fall mood perfectly. & I’ll admit: I wish this beauty could come home with me, but I’m pretty sure if it disappears from my Mom’s stash, my bags would be the first ones searched. Haha.
