UPDATE: after reading some other blogs and doing more research I learned it was not CHANEL Rouge Noir worn by Uma Thurman in the movie ” Pulp Fiction”.
This has been confirmed to several people from CHANEL themselves that they jumped on the dark nail bandwagon in 1994 when this movie came out. In the fall of 1994 the make up artist for CHANEL was using a magic marker to make the models nails dark and that is why they developed #18 Rouge Noir. Sales were through the roof. History was made once again by the House of CHANEL.
What polish was used on Uma Thurman in the movie? MAC Dubonnet used with a bit of OPI matte clear mixed in.

Let it Bleed from Deborah Lippmann for the True Blood series on HBO. This came in a kit called Forsaken and included a lipstick called Bite Me, which is the same color as the nail polish.
I received this the same day I received the CHANEL #18 Rouge Noir that I featured on yesterday’s post. I swatched these 2 colors side by side and quickly realized they are the same. The only difference is the Deborah Lippmann Let it Bleed is fragranced.
Even though these look different from each other in the bottle, they are not when painting on your nails. I used the CHANEL first and was quickly impressed with the look of blood achieved with this polish. Then I swatched the Deborah Lippmann and quickly realized it had the same look and feel of blood. When the swatches dried I could not see a difference in the swatches. I looked at night under the light, in the early morning light and again this afternoon in bright sunlight 😎 there is no difference. This is why I’ve added the DL Let it Bleed as a dead on dupe for CHANEL #18 Rouge Noir on my dupes page, linked above.
I honestly love both of these polishes. I’m so grateful to Carla for sending me the CHANEL and for Haute Look for the deal on the DL set ($8.50 for the set). This polish is definetly in my Top 5 all time favorite polishes. Love it!💜💜
💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!
