Doing our nails is one of our favourite past times. Whether you like to splurge on set of acrylics or prefer to do it yourself, we all love to have a nail polish colour. It’s a simple way to elevate any look and to make you look effortlessly put together. Every cosmetic brands has their own line of nail polishes, not to mention professional nail artists who have turned their hand to releasing their own colours. If you’re ever in the mood to treat yourself, Chanel is one nail polish brand you might not have considered before. Spoiler alert: these nail polishes are more than just fancy packaging.
You don’t have to have the budget to buy a 2.55 bag to bring a little piece of Chanel into your daily life. Their nail polishes are one of the more affordable items from their cosmetic brand, which gives you the luxury treatment you would expect from everyone’s favourite French brand.
Chanel launched their nail polishes in the 1990s, with the shade ‘Rouge Noir’ becoming the first colour to go mainstream. The shade was created for the Autumn/Winter 1994 runway show, mixed by Heidi Morawetz who blended black and red to create the signature shade. The colour was worn by Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction, making it one of the first beauty products to go viral.
Another signature shade from the brand’s nail collection is ballerina. This pale pink shade complements any complexion and is a must-have in your collection for when you need a classic colour to wear for a formal occasion or when you want a more feminine look. The popularity of Ballerina comes from its buildability and how you can use one coat for a natural ‘barely there’ look.
Ballerina, Rouge Noir, and the shade Particuliere are three of Chanel’s bestselling nail polish colours. Other colours to check out include Emblematique and Mythique. Chanel includes a few nail polishes in each of their seasonal makeup collections, making them highly collectible for any makeup fan.
Not only are these polishes long-lasting, but the packaging is also the perfect addition to your dressing table. You can collect a few and line them up next to your makeup bag to add a little touch of luxury to your décor.
A quick scroll through the @welovecoco Instagram account will give you all the inspiration you need for how to wear your Chanel nail polish. Whether you’re a fan of nail art or like to wear a different shade on each finger, the styling options are ultimate with these nail polishes.
Chanel is the go-to brand of choice for celebrity and professional manicurists, who say that the polishes are ideal for shorter nails and that their rich colours make them stand out from the crowd. Nothing is chicer than a Chanel nail polish. Treat yourself to a bottle today, whether you’re someone who does their nails religiously or if you prefer to save your polish for special occasions.
Do you have any Chanel nail polishes in your collection? Which shade would you treat yourself to?
2020 was the year we all had to rely on giving ourselves an at-home manicure. If you were lucky enough to get a salon appointment, you were truly blessed. Across the beauty industry, trends are all pointing towards natural looks to enhance your features and give you the appearance of not wearing any products at all. Nude has gone from a boring shade to a must-have colour for 2021. It’s a little more contemporary than a ballerina pink but still minimalistic to work with any outfit. If you have a paler complexion, nude nail polishes can help elongate your fingers and give you a fresher looking manicure.
Refreshing your wardrobe every season can be expensive. More of us than ever are choosing to build capsule wardrobes and take a vow of minimalism. Unless you’ve got the budget of a Hadid or a Kardashian, it’s unlikely you can buy into every fashion trend. Thankfully, trends are like boomerangs that eventually come back around.
Fashion Week is like the holiday season for fashion followers. It’s our favorite time of the year and a staple in our calendar. While this London Fashion Week was a unique experience thanks to the pandemic, it didn’t rob us of inspiration for our spring wardrobe. Digital presentations replaced the usual runway shows and influencers took to social media to share their outfits instead of photographers catching their street style outside events.
Did the word ‘Zoom’ exist in our vocabulary before the pandemic? After COVID-19 made us all quarantine inside and switch the office for working from home, Zoom became our principal method of communication with the world outside our front door. You might feel like you’re living in Groundhog Day, with one Zoom call after another.
