I am a Barry M nail varnish addict but am tempted by the Chanel rouge noir. The only thing that has stopped me though is the price! Is it worth £17?

I found Nars in a similar colour to be a better quality.

No! I have a bottle from back when Chanel polish was only £12 and it's lovely but there are many many dupes for it. OPI and Essie have loads - Essie Wicked, OPI William Tell Me about OPI...depends how fussy you are about matching it exactly.

OPI We'll Always have Paris is good...I'd choose OPI over Chanel for quality.

And Zoya Paris. All pretty much identical to rouge noir.

The OPI William one looks good and it's £8, think I'll try this. Thanks!

Chanel nail polish chips easily

I've found that even with a base coat you need two coats, if not three. I also found that it would leave purple scratch marks on paper.

For all its faults, I still think the original colour is best.

It depends how important the specific colour is to you, versus its durability. For fashion colours, brands like Dior and Chanel can't be beaten although perhaps by now you could find a more hardwearing version of Rouge Noir by another company, since it's been out for so long.

I enjoy a guilty treat like a Chanel nail varnish, every now and again

I'll never buy another Chanel nail varnish, it is impossible to get a thin layer of smooth, not patchy colour. And if you do, it will chip in a day. Even my manicurist had problems applying the colour when I took it to her. Essie wicked is the answer.

No it's most definately not worth it. I saved up my boots points to get one and was glad I hadn't paid for it myself as like others have said it chips after a day.

Opi, rimmel, nails inc or mavala much better.

I love Rouge Noir! I find any varnish on my fingernails chips easily anyway, but Rouge Noir lasts for weeks on my toenails. In fact, I got married with it on my toenails, I love it that much smile
