Chanel Particuliere 505 Comparisons

From left to right: Chanel Particulière, OPI Over the Taupe, Sally Hansen Commander in Chic, Rimmel Steel Grey

I would say OPI Over the Taupe is the closest colour to Particulière in this swatch. Even though Commander in Chic and Steel Grey are widely known as near dupes, they are slightly cooler in tone and do not apply as well as the other two.

Chanel Particulière was first introduced in the Les Contrastes des Chanel Collection in Spring 2010 and is now a part of their permanent nail polish line due to its immense popularity.

Bottles are in the same order as swatches.

  5. Gosh that's a gorgeous shade. Looks like it'll have to be a dupe for me... Chanel bottles are priced at $45 in Australia. Not so cheap. Have to be sure you love the shade first! :) I love your nails they are beautiful.
