Chanel’s Barcelona Red was released in 2005 within the Rouge Hydrabase collection alongside Miami Peach and English Rose. It is a warm toned red with a delicate golden shimmer.
One layer is opaque enough as most of the times but for a better durability I always apply two layers. Also the shimmer is seen better with two coats.
Since it is a red tone with golden shimmer it’s perfect for christmas season. I always go for red nails on christmas! It’s also fine with lighter skin tones so if you’re basically white as a wall like me, this info might be important.
The durability of Barcelona Red is like every other red quite good and depends on your nail structure and base/top coating. Though sometimes it seems really hard to avoid chips.
One bottle costs about 23,99 € but you won’t find a polish from 2005 in stores so you better go looking for it 2nd hand as I did.
