Chanel Recto-Verso 82, Les Vernis Facettes coll. 2000 - Collaboration Saturday

In this Collaboration Saturday with my friend Elena from PicturedTinsel - I have the second of the four polishes from Chanel Les Vernis Facettes coll. 2000: Vice Versa 81, Recto Verso 82, Clair-Obscur 83 and Ange-Demon 84 - the names are clickable when I have shown the swatches.
The lids and bottles in this collection are silky matte and the glass has a violet shine depending on light and the angle you see it from. The finish of the polishes match the rest, it's silky-matte.
Chanel Recto-Verso 82 is fascinating iridescent sheer polish with glimpses of grey and it is packed with a beautiful blue shimmer – it’s very interesting to look at! This is three easy coats without a top coat. I bought it from Sansa-Beauty - thank you for  selling me this last puzzle for this collection.
It probably also would be good as an effect and possibly layering polish.
This had to be very unusual and trend setting 14 years ago, just like the rest of this collection!
I wonder what Elena has for us today?

  1. Absolutely beautiful. It looks as if there is some shimmering frosted glass on your nails.

    Kind regards,
    Elena

  4. I wonder if that purple hue that shows in the bottle would show up on the nails if it was layered over a dark colour? Interesting!

    1. LOL - it's in the glass, I wrote this: "The lids and bottles in this collection are silky matte and the glass has a violet shine depending on light and the angle you see it from."

    3. LOL - it fooled me too - right up to the point I put it on my nails, so you are excused ;)

  5. 3 coats - that's good. I would have expected it to be more sheer! Looks amazing and that shimmer OMG! Way ahead of its time back then for sure :-D

    1. I'm not sure it would be very good for layering, it is fairly opaque on it's own :)

  8. I don't like how sheer it is but I would love it layered :)
    The bottle is amazing! I would love if they keep changing the limited edition bottles :)

  10. Hi Maria!
    I'm so glad to see your beautiful swatch here!
    I'm relieved to know it arrived safely to you after i sold it to you. To be honest i was a little bit worried about it because i didn't hear from you since then. But now i see that everything fine! Would you consider mention me in this post as somebody who helped you to get this polish?
    I would be very happy if you could do this! I'm glad you liked it and i hope we both will continue make swatches and get nail polishes from our wish list!

    Best wishes, Nastya http://sansa-beauty.blogspot.ru/

    1. It is a very long time ago, but you might remember that I didn't buy it from you, but from our mutual friend. You didn't want to ship it Internationally, it was too much trouble, so you sold it to her to sell to me.
      I of course told our friend that it arrived :)

    2. Thank you Maria for your answer. I didn't know that there's no tradition in Denmark to greet people after they greeted you but thanks to you, now i know it )
      I was a bit surprised to read that you didn't buy it from me but from our mutual friend. Technically it's correct but you know it yourself that i was the first owner of this polish and our mutual friend wouldn't be able to sell it to you if i didn't agree to sell it in the first place.
      You wanted to have it since it was the only one that you missed from this collection. I didn't want to sell it internationally, more than that i also had a local buyer for this polish. You suggested to buy via our mutual friend. I agreed and took trouble to meet our mutual friend to give the nail polish to her. After you got the nail polish you didn't think I was worth sending a thank you note so you didn't bother. Thank you, i've learned my lesson now. I'm sorry if you thought it's too much to ask for.
      Good luck, Maria )

    3. OH wow, I really must have offended you, I'm sorry about that, please accept my apologies.
      I just wonder why you suddenly 1 year and 1 month after I bought it decide to react...
      If you want to discuss this further I suggest we do it via email, as this hardly is of interest of anyone else.
