Chanel Coromandel 473 Le Vernis Swatch & Review

Chanel Le Vernis in Coromandel 473 is a bright tomato orange-red with subtle orange shimmer. This is my go to red nail when I'm in a rush as it's pretty much a one coater (I only used 1 here) and has a glossy finish so no need for a top coat. It's a very classic red and looks stunning on all skintones. It's much more orange than Chanel Fire or Dragon and is my favourite out of the 3.

I get a good 3-4 days wear out of this (with topcoat to seal it in) before it looks a bit tip worn. I've heard this was discontinued in the US but you can still buy this in the UK (at least at some counters).

I bought mine from


  1. This i very much still available in the UK. I also saw it in Mexico and Canada! I'm soo in love with it but scared of the price tag! I'm guessing you think it's worth the money? You're right it is such a classic colour. Almost needs a long Hepburn-style cigarette holder to complete the look!!

    1. That's great to hear! Means I don't have to buy back ups! It is a lovely and timeless colour and definitely a luxury item! For me I think it's worth it- but then I am a sucker for all things Chanel so I guess I'm biased!! :)

  2. Very beautiful!
