Comparison: Chanel – Accessoire Le Vernis Nail Colour

Chanel’s Spring 2013 collection consisted of 3 new nail colours. Of course being a Chanel-fiend I picked up all three. The first thing I did when I got home was to see if I have any dupes for the three colors, however, I could only find similar colors for Accessoire. I find it very similar to Chanel’s Vamp, Rouge Noir and the recently released (holiday 2012 collection) Malice. I find the difference to be only noticeable under bright lighting (mostly sunlight).

Accessoire vs. Vamp

–          I find these two to be the most similar. Vamp is a shimmer polish while Accessoire is a crème polish. Accessoire has a bit more brown in the base color than Vamp but it is very similar.

Accessoire vs. Rouge Noir

–          The finish of the two polishes is the same. Rouge Noir is darker, almost black with a bit of red tone. The different between the two is very noticeable even in low lighting.

Accessoire vs. Malice

–          Malice has some red shimmer in it and the base color is darker, however, in low lighting it still appears to be very similar.

It was interesting to see such a fall/winter color as part of the spring collection. It is an interesting color, definitely more on the brown side than red or plum or black. I am glad I have it as part of my nail polish collection, but I don’t see it as a must have.

Bottom line: If you have any of the above Chanel nail polish, you can pass on this polish. It is a permanent product, so you can always pick it up later.
