Chanel - Rouge Rubis #677

Hi everyone :) I hope you all had a nice weekend, possibly filled with lots of nail artistry! Today I have another swatch for you, and I just had to put it on the blog before anything else, because it's so freaking amazing! I'm talking about Chanel's recent nail polish shade for the Holiday/Winter 2013 Collection Nuit Infinie de Chanel - Rouge Rubis #677. It's a crelly, a true red, which means it doesn't lean pink nor orange, just red! It may be described as being bright, but I'd rather say that it's super saturated! I made a comparison to other red cremes/crellies from Chanel that I own, and there you'll se exactly how 'true' the redness of Rouge Rubis indeed is. First I can tell you that the consistency was unbelievably great. It was so smooth and shiny from the first layer to the last - I used 2 coats and the top coat this time was Chanel's own Laque Brillance Extrême. Final judgement below the photos :)

When you're working with a Chanel polish you know you get the crème de la crème of lacquers. In the luxury high-end lacquer category this is absolutely my favorite brand. I love everything about Chanel nail polishes - the innovative shades, new ones, old ones, the formula, the bottle, and so on! Then again I've only tried 3 luxury brands; Chanel being the first, then Dior and YSL. I'm really dying to try Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs and Guerlain! Have anyone of you tried those brands, and what do you think about them? Comment below or on Instagram @nailescapades :)

See you soon, guys!
