Chanel Black Pearl...really?

Now I know Chanel's Black Pearl is a pretty color, but this is how it looks in Vogue Magazine's January issue. I took a photo of the page, so my picture is actually a bit less vivid than what they show. I've yet to see any swatches that look like this, and in my opinion, it's not holographic as the description in the magazine states. It would be nice to have a color like this though, don't you agree?!!

  1. That is the most misleading picture I've ever seen in my LIFE. I own Black Pearl and its not a holo in the LEAST... NOTHING like the pic! However that would be an awesome color to have lol maybe they're trying to hint around lol

  3. If Black Pearl really looked the way it was depicted I would have no issues shelling out the $23 for it. :P

  4. Talk about false advertising! Guess we have to be cautious when we see nail polish in magazines!

    But how awesome it would be if it looks like that!

  11. Marketing at it's best. I was amazed at the number of bottles of BP on the counter with a special display just for BP at Nordy's last weekend...but this? this is utter Bullshit.

  13. Well the only thing I'm wondering about this polish is whether I could find a dupe somewhere, a friend seems to be in desperate need of this one and I would like to make her a present, but still, I'd love to hear that there is a cheaper verison somewhere (not for my friend, but for me, mwahaha!)
    I'm really surprised by this picture, I have never seen Black Pearl like this, maybe the camera was drunk? ^^
