Chanel Le Vernis in Tulipe Noire 457: Review,Swatches and NOTD

Now this was a gift to me..Awww yeah... a budget belleza doesn't spend so much on her nails ;)
This is my first Chanel nail paint. Read on to know my awesome or not-so-awesome experience:
 
Chanel Claims:
Classic and trend-defining shades from the runways of Paris. State-of-the-art formula strengthens and moisturizes nails as it delivers long-wearing, high-shine, chip-resistant colour. Applies evenly without streaking.
All Chanel nail products are formaldehyde-free, toluene-free and DBP-free.

Price/Quantity: $27/13ml (approx. INR 1700/-)

Directions To Use:
Using built-in brush applicator, lightly apply colour to nails. Let dry and reapply colour until desired intensity is achieved.

Packaging:

Chanel nail paints come in squarish bulky glass bottles with a black twist open applicator cap with the Chanel logo on it. The shade name and number is given there on the bottle front. The brush applicator is of good quality (C'mon now for that price..the basics have to be kept right).

Shade- Tulipe Noire 457
Tulipe Noire is a Deep Maroon with slight brown undertones. The shimmers so visible in the bottle are no where to be seen on the nails. For me its a boring maroon :/

My Take:
Well as I said before,this is my first Chanel and lemme tell you I'm disappointed with the shade and the staying power considering its price. Now I have no clue if  "chipping-off-third-day-itself" is an issue with this particular shade or in general (I so wish its just with my piece..I mean how can a 1700/- nail paint last on me lesser than its 30/- street counterpart..phew...and No,I don't do the utensils or clothes myself and neither I'm cooking all day to feed a family of fifteen..uuh) Talking about the shade..like I said its a boring deep maroon.Period!
 My Likes:
1. Looks good on my nail paint stash
2. Good packaging
3. Formaldehyde-free, toluene-free and DBP-free.

My Dislikes:
1. Chipped off the third day :(
2. Boring shade :/
3. Bulky to carry while travelling.
4. Way to expensive for the quality it delivered.

Last Word:
Not worth the price and hype!

Repurchase:
Thank God it was a gift! Wouldn't have bought this even :(
