Chanel Le Vernis In 529 Graphite

Chanel Le Vernis in 529 Graphite was released as part of the three nail polishes in the Illusion D’Ombre Makeup Collection for Fall. Each of these nail polishes contains 13ml of product, made in France and retails at S$36.

529 Graphite is a limited edition shade. My favourite shade amongst the three and I actually bought a back-up, my first back-up of any coloured product. Graphite is a very carefully blend of sparkly silver with larger silver, gold and a touch of gold and green light-reflecting particles.

529 Graphite is the easiest to apply amongst the three (glad to say, not much skills needed) and it wears a little longer too. Could be due to the glittery particles which often lasts longer on nails. I am so in love with this shade, every time I wear it, I tend to admire the colours under different lighting. This colour goes well with most of my outfits too, whether I am in red, green or blue, having my nails in 529 Graphite surely makes a statement. Absolutely worth checking out if you fancy this sort of colour.

Café Makeup discovered a possible dupe, find out what it is here.

Did you pick up a bottle of 529 Graphite? How are you liking it?

Thank you for reading.

All swatches taken with Essie First Base Base Coat, 2 coats of nail polish and Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat.

  1. Thanks you for posting this I bought Graphite as well and now have it on my toe nails I am absolutly in love with this shade and I am considering getting a back up which I normally never do. I did not expect to love this one so much you see how unique it as after putting it on you nails and the longer you look the more you fall in love with it. Even more than with the Peridot

    • Totally agree with you Nawi, I didn’t think I would need a back-up but I went to buy one after wearing Graphite for a day.
      I have figured out that it’s totally worth a second bottle =)

  2. Bought and wore Graphite, in certain light it looks a little greenish, I wish it was more silver. I was given another bottle as a door gift, (along with Illusion d’Ombre in Epatant) after the Chanel A/W RTW presentation. As i didn’t think I would need a backup, I passed that to my best friend. Chanel sparkles are really good!

    • Hi Andrea,
      Thank you for commenting =)
      How are you liking Epatant? I tried it on the other day and I am so in love with the sparkle..
      With the many new collections, I don’t think a backup is necessary but I love Graphite too much..
