Review/Comparison: Las Vegas De Chanel Collection – Le Vernis Gold Fingers Nail Polish

The Gold Fingers Nail Polish is a pale gold nail polish with a gold, green and pink shimmer under the sun. It reminds me of Chanel’s Graphite from the Fall 2011 collection, although not quite as unique and shimmery as Graphite.

I compared it to a couple of gold nail polishes in my stash: The first being L’Oreal’s Project Runway Colors Take Flight collection nail polish in Amazon’s Flash #695,and then also the Hello Kitty’s 2011 Holiday collection Liquid Nail Art in Gold Sparkle.

As you can see Gold Fingers is much paler than Amazon’s Flash (which is a horrible watery nail polish that does not apply evenly). Gold Finger’s gold tone is similar to the HK’s Gold Sparkle, except Gold Sparkle has more noticeable glitter in green, silver and red. Out of the three, I have to say HK’s Gold Sparkle is the most unique.

The Gold Fingers applies smooth and does not streak. However, out of all of my Chanel nail polishes this one chips the worst. I applied 2 coats with Chanel’s base coat and Deborah Lippmann’s Addicted to Speed top coat. I have used that combination with other Chanel nail polishes and have never seen this result. It chipped on the same day as applied (on my birthday, how sad).  I am not talking about small chips either, big chunks fell out. To top that, one of my toe nails chipped completely, that has never happened to me before.

$28 @ or or Vegas Boutique in Borgata

0.04 fl oz


  • Beautiful color
  • None Streaking


  • Chips easily

Bottom line: It is a pretty gold, and I hate to say this about Chanel products, but I would avoid this nail polish and look for a dupe that performs better.

Review: Las Vegas De Chanel Collection – Lucky Stripes Iridescent Powders for Eyes and Cheeks

Oh Chanel, why you have to torture me with another limited collection. My wallet was still recovering from getting the entire Knightsbridge Collection (which I will review soon, since you can still purchase it on, so I only picked up the Lucky Stripes Iridescent Powder and the Gold Fingers nail polish (hehe reminds me of Austin Power’s Goldmember).

The Lucky Stripes Iridescent Powder comes with the standard Chanel packaging, square shaped, black plastic case. It also came with an angled brush in a velvet pouch, which I am not sure exactly how I feel about it; since most of the time I don’t use it and I don’t quite know where to put it for storage. I guess it is useful for on-the-go if you really need to. It should be noted that there is no applicator for eyes, since Chanel does advertise it as a product for both eyes and cheeks.

The powder itself is really beautiful. However, being a crazy anal person, I don’t understand why the strips are not symmetrical. There is more of the pink shade than the brown shade. Nonetheless, the strips are wide enough to get a decent sized eye brush to pick up each of the colors.

The Lucky Stripes Iridescent Powder is very finely milled and has shimmer not glitter. It applies smoothly on the skin and the pigmentation is good, except for the gold shade. With the stripes mixed together you get a pretty sheen; it does not lean on the gold side surprisingly. There is no noticeable fragrance with the powder; unlike the Joues Contraste Powder Blushes (I actually love the rose smell).

Product Info:

$95 @ or Vegas Boutique in Borgata

It is a limited edition product.

15g NET WT 0.53oz


  • Finely Milled
  • Multipurpose


  • REALLY Expensive
  • Colors are dupable

Bottom line: If you are a Chanel fiend like me, with money to spend, I would get this product. Otherwise, I would definitely skip it because of the super marked up price and the fact it is not the most unique product from Chanel.
