Rouge Noir: More Than Just Nails

Chanel’S Le Vernis Nail Colour in Rouge Noir is legendary. A rich, near-black red with the glossiest of finishes, it was first debuted at Chanel’s autumn/winter 1994 show – as well as adorning the nails of Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction that same year – and has been a bestseller ever since. Now, over 20 years later, Chanel is celebrating its most seductive of colours with a full limited-edition make-up collection in its honour for Christmas.

From the deepest burgundy mascara to a lipstick in the exact same hue as the polish itself, the Rouge Noir collection feels just right for party season – as well as being a must for the legions of fans the original nail polish has garnered. And for those looking for a more festive twist? The sure-to-sell-out Le Top Coat Lamé is a Rouge-Noir-tinted sheer top coat packed with golden shards of sparkle, designed to be worn over the Le Vernis polish for a seasonal update.
