Black Pearl

As you may know Chanel has a huge impact on how we paint our nails every season, probably due to their very limited edition range that hits the market a few times a year and the hype around it is always insane, waiting lists, selling out as soon as they hit the counter for £16 and then can then be found on ebay from £60 and up. Even if you think they don’t influence what you wear they probably do cause their trend colors get copied by any high street brand out there. Do you remember 2009’s Jade color, Februar’s Particuliere, June’s Nouvelle Vague and the Khaki range a month ago.

Here’s a sneak peak, the new color will most likely be Black Pearl. When Chanel presented their Spring Collection 2011 all the models nails were painted in a black pearly color with hints of green, being seen on the Spring show is a pretty good indicator on what’s gonna be the next nail-mania. Personally I think it’s a bit dark for spring but I’m sure it’s gonna be a success as always, in fact I’m gonna look around for something similar and wear it now.

    Hi Kazuko, I have to agree with you there, the quality of Chanel polish is very good, it hardly flakes, with a base and topcoat it lasts almost a week for me and another good thing, it can be kept for a long time if you store it in the fridge, some cheaper brands have a tendency to thicken and useless after a short time.

    […] I stopped by Topshop next door and found this nail polish, similar to Chanel’s Black Pearl but not much hint of green I’m afraid, in real life it’s less purple than it looks […]
