Chanel Cosmic is one of two limited edition polishes specially released by Chanel for Vogue Fashion’s Night Out 2013. I passed on the other one, Magic, because it’s extremely close to my favourite navy, Chanel Blue Rebel. But when I saw the bottle shot of Cosmic I knew I had to have it!
The original bottle shot seemed to indicate that it had a black base with silver glitter – a black version of Chanel Ciel De Nuit perhaps? In person, it actually has tiny irregularly shaped flecks that shift from silver to blue.
Super pretty, right? And on the nail it doesn’t disappoint either. This is 3 flawless coats (although it could be opaque in 2 if you have shorter nails) with top coat.
While it may not have the depth of a typical “starry night” polish, I love it because I’m a sucker for flecks. I also think the flecks make it more unique, and that might actually make it better than what I was originally expecting. And to top it all off, it’s work friendly!
Chanel Cosmic and Magic are limited edition. If you’re really quick, you can call up the Chanel counter at Myer Sydney on 1300 CHANEL, and they can put them aside or post them out to you. I’m not sure how long for though, so don’t expect them to be available for much longer!
