Chanel 522 Monochrome Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour Review

By Robin P.

Hi IMBBians,

This is my first post on IMBB. I have been following this blog since 2013 and it has been my “go-to” blog before any shopping.  Today, I am reviewing a very classy nail paint shade from Chanel. I love Chanel nail paints. They are long lasting and have such good quality. Chanel came up with new shades in its “Le Vernis” line. I was on my weekend shopping trip to The Grove, where I saw this 522 Monochrome nail colour at the Nordstrom store.


Product Description:
A long-wear, protective nail polish with lasting shine designed to make vibrant colors dazzle. Long-wearing, extra-fine and ultra-shiny, each coat offers an absolutely even and lacquered result. The newly-renovated 5-free formula features Bioceramics and Ceramides to improve the quality of nails. In an arresting palette of 15 trend-setting shades, including bestselling cult favorites and daring new colors.
USD 28 ~ INR 1908 for 13ml (0.4 FL. OZ.)

My Experience with Chanel 522 Monochrome Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour:

This nail polish comes in a square glass bottle with minimal design. The cap of the bottle is black and has the Chanel logo on top of it. The outer packaging is typical Chanel box – black colored with a golden line at the bottom.


The best thing about this formulation is that it is 5-Free, that means free of formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor.

The brush is thin but works nicely – allowing you to go with fine details in nail corners. The nail polish is quite thin and I apply two coats of it to get the true color on to the nails. The finish is somewhat not that glossy and gives a classy finish between matte and glossy.


“Monochrome” is a true classic and has a very formal look. It has a very cool vibe about it. I wear this shade when I have a formal event in my school.



Now, it lasts for about 3-4 days on my nails without chipping. My nails grow quite fast, so I always have to redo my nails every 4 days.

Pros of Chanel 522 Monochrome Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour:

  • 5-Free formulation.
  • Classic color.
  • Lightweight.
  • Good staying power.
  • Dries fast.
  • Good packaging.

Cons of Chanel 522 Monochrome Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour:

  • None.
