Chanel Dragon: Nail Polish Swatches and Review

So...on my little spree of ridiculously expensive and lust-worthy nail polishes, I have to include a Chanel.

This pretty red lovely received a literal squeal from me when another one of my friends/tutees gifted me this. "Chanel Dragon?! Oh My Goodness!" was my cry. She just admitted she got it for me because she knew red was my favorite color and the name sounded exotic. Have I mentioned how adorable and perfect this gifter is?

This is the first Chanel in my collection. 475 Dragon. It is a pure, bright red with a super shiny finish.
This retails for $23, around the same price as a Dior. I know there are many reds on the market, but this is just the classic, quintessential, old Hollywood, Marilyn Monroe shade of red that you need!
I was really curious to see how this would compare to the Dior. The brush is much smaller, but the consistency is about the same. What I was really impressed with was the opacity. This is only ONE thin coat. It is like painting pure pigment onto your nails. I was in awe the entire time.
This polish is flawless. I now understand why people pay for these. This color is like the perfect little red dress in a bottle. I feel so powerful wearing it! And since red IS my favorite color, I am glad to have this bottle of polish around.
Final Thoughts: If you are a beauty junkie, for the love of all things good in life and kittens, please treat yourself to Chanel Dragon.
Price: 6/10 (but it was free for I can't really comment)

Staying Power: 10/10

Packaging: 10/10

Color/Wearability: 10/10

Quality/Branding: 10/10
Total: 46/50 = A= Panda is dying of happiness!
Do you have a Chanel? Do you prefer it to your Diors? (If you have any) I am having the best early Christmas ever over here with all these nail polish gifts!

  1. I have the Dragon lipstick! Which they've discontinued, but apparently made into a polish instead. Y u do, Chanel? This looks beautiful.

  2. I wish I had the dragon lipstick! But thankfully I have this now since I can't get my hands on the other!

  3. hahahah wow your tutees do know you well! This is my favorite/most-worn type of polish shade, and of course Chanel's version looks like the ultimate red. Ahhh, it's so gorgeous, maybe if I manage a 4.0 this semester hahaha. a.k.a. gonna keep using the reds I already have and continue dreaming...

    1. haha it is not a must have...I wouldn't own it without it being a gift, but it is a little luxury! But if you do get a 4.0, you should treat yourself to something! ;) I always do haha


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it!
