What Nordstrom says about Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour:
Brilliance to your fingertips with must-have colours from the runways of Paris. State-of-the-art formula strengthens and moisturizes nails. Unique patented non-spill bottle with wiping action for easy application.
Cinema is a warm red cream (Chanel really knows how to do up the reds, I haven't met one I didn't love for nails or lips!). Dry time was fast and application was so easy it was like someone else was doing my nails for me. One coat covered the nail well, but the second coat added more vibrancy, which, IMO, was necessary for this shade.
