chanel's provocation originally appeared in their fashion night out collection for 2012 (with infidele, the one that got away for me), but it was brought back as a part of the permanent line.
it is a gorgeous, gorgeous plum shade. of course, the colour is a bit more complex than that, it has some brown undertones and dries a bit darker than in the bottle.
the first coat is a bit sheer but it builds up nicely with the second one. it a classy but not boring sort of polish.
i wore base coat (china glaze strong adhesion) + two coats of polish + top coat (essence btgnts)
