Vertigo is one of those colours you either love or hate. I didn't commit to buying it until I had a manicure done at the Covent Garden pop-up store - and then I knew I had to have it in collection.
First impressions. It's a sludgey non-decript kind of colour - from some angles it looks almost black, and from other angles or light source it looks like a purpley grey.
And then it hits you when you see the subtle red shimmer in the sun.
In the below swatch photo, I could not capture the red shimmer - as with the case with a lot of Chanel polishes, the shimmer is more obvious in the bottle than on the nails.
I really like this shade - it's the kind of colour I had hoped Paradoxal would be - a dark masculine vampish shade that flatters my skintone.
Here's a photo of the manicure I had at the pop-up - she did a really good job - it wasn't a typical slap and dash kind of file & polish.
Vertigo is not everyone's cup of tea though - have you seen this in person? What do you think?
