Nope. It's totally true. I've just been waiting and waiting and waiting for it. I'd rather have the polish than an extra hundred bucks. Although also being a poor college student I probably should have just taken the money But now that I have it on it's just love.

Strange how things get so hyped over in the US.

If i wanted that varnish, i bet you that i could go to most of the stores and still have it....

its not the same version in europe, its just black and has no shimmer, thus the no hype for it
and yeah my mom when she went to france last month had no problem finding one for me, except i was disappointed because it was the no shimmer version

Yeah, the shimmer one sounds much more appealing.

I have to say, I just bought this exact product the other day and find it absolutely horrendous! The texture is watery (takes a couple coats just to look black) and chips VERY easily. Plus a ton of airbubbles.

I'm wondering if I should try another cheap brand or splurge on the Chanel one.

and if u liked it, and cant get one anymore, u can always try OPI or wet n' wild -girls here have recommended it before,
so... why not buy something u know it's good if u didnt like the alt.

^Me too Hebden.

I think Chanel purposely limited the production of the black satin as it worked so well for the Rouge Noir back in the 90's. It's a marketing strategy that companies use and it gets old!

Thanks for the tip for the varnish by Rimmel.

I bought MAC's Nocturnelle black nail polish at Nordstroms last weekend and absolutely love it! It applies beautifully. I only needed one coat and it is very glossy. I've had it on for three days and it still hasn't chipped yet. I just checked MAC's website and it looks like it's sold out right now. I better go back this weekend and pick up another bottle.

Hello, would it be possible for someone with the US version to post a pic of how the varnish looks on their nails? I would like to see how shimmery it is.
thanks!

thanks! I got some yeserday and I live in Canada so I was wondering if it was the same as the US version. Unfortunately I think that it is the 'no shimmer' version that they have in Europe.

Couldn't you just add a touch of shimmery polish to some cheap black polish? I mean, yeah yeah I'm sure it's not exactly the same, but wouldn't it look pretty damn close? and be a hell of a lot cheaper...
