My Top 5 ~ CHANEL Black Pearl

Posted on: September 24, 2012

CHANEL Black Pearl has been one of my favorites since its release with the Spring 2011 collection. I think this polish is gorgeous in the way it can look gray one minute and green the next. Sometimes it looks black, sometimes it looks dark blue. It’s just another of many, put out by CHANEL that is like no other. Dupes for this polish? Yes, we’ll talk about that in a bit.

This picture is indoors, no artificial lighting. Black Pearl has a great formula, full coverage with 2 coats, no VNL, and no need for a topcoat as it dries very shiny. I did put a topcoat of Seche-Vite on as I’m not very patient about drying time, really I’m not very patient about much! The formula for Black Pearl is different from most CHANEL polishes as it doesn’t have to be babied quite so much. Like May, May needs to applied with thin coats, at least 3 and they need to dry fully between each coat. With Black Pearl there was no babying involved. I think it is a beautiful polish and it will always be in my Top 5.

This picture was outdoors.

There is a dupe for Black Pearl by Revlon called Black with Envy. When you look at the polishes side by side, they look to be exact.

When applied whether on your nails or on a nail wheel, they are exact.

As much as I love Black Pearl, and it will always be in my Top 5, I also have to include Revlon’s Black with Envy in that list as well. Either way, CHANEL Black Pearl or Revlon’s Black with Envy, this is a gorgeous polish and I love it!
This is one polish that gets 5 out of 5 stars from me! Alert the newspapers, this is a rare occasion but this polish very much deserves the 5 stars!
As always, thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Diane, I’m glad you agree with me!


Love the Revlon Black With Envy,so glad to know it’s the Chanel Dupe as it is so much more affordable.Look forward to seeing all your other faves!


Black with Envy looks like it was made at the same factory, they are that close! I do love the CHANEL though, the formula is great on the Black Pearl. Thanks again for stopping by and commenting. I love your comments. — Judi

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
