NOTD: Chanel Le Vernis 513 Black Pearl

Black pearls. Mmmm, divine! I recall my mother's choice for accessories to my burgundy ruffled prom dress was a strand of black freshwater pearls with matching earrings. Classic yet more refined, and elegant.

Chanel Le Vernis 513 Black Pearl is much like a necklace or earrings of black pearls: beautiful, refined, and elegant. For the young and trendy, Black Pearl is the hip part of the Collection des Perles de Chanel that veers into almost too classic and safe.  Black Pearl has a black base with green, silver and blue pearl with hints of purple.  It's appearance changes ever so slightly in different lighting, appearing more blue and green in more natural light, while the purple and green show up in evening light.  It's chameleon like tendencies are much like those of real pearls, varying ever so slightly and picking up colors in different light.

Chanel Le Vernis is definitely a splurge for me.  At $26 CAD, it's not something I'd be buying everyday, however its chameleon like beauty was too gorgeous for me to pass up.  I'd definitely suggest checking this out at least just to admire it for a moment.
