For the most of us, re-stocking our beauty supply is a test in the art of prioritising. There are products worth the splurge (think: skincare, foundation, eye shadows) and times where a cheap thrill will suffice (ie: mascara, eyeliner, lip gloss) However let’s forget about playing favourites for a second because I’m about to tell you that a $41 nail polish is the must-have beauty buy right now. More specifically, Chanel Le Top Coat Black Metamorphosis. 

CHANEL, LE TOP COAT Black Metamorphesis, $41. SHOP NOW

The sheer black polish works like a leather jacket for your nails, instantly adding a wintery vibe to summer shades by totally shifts whatever colour it’s layered on top of. One coat will turn bare nails to grey, red to deep wine, blue to almost black and pink to plum. Meaning you won’t need to put your wardrobe of bright colours into storage once April rolls around, just transform your look with this genius lacquer.
