Chanel Fall 2011 Nail Polish Sneak Peek: Graphite, Quartz & Peridot

chanel fall 2011 nail polish graphite, peridot, quartz

We learned back in March that one of the Chanel Nail Colours was called Graphite.  Our favorite luxury nail artist, Sophy Robson, received a set of Chanel’s Fall 2011 nail colours and she was nice enough to give us a sneak peek of all the new shades!  The colors, Graphite, Quartz & Peridot are all very pearly and as the names indicate, shine like the minerals they are named after.  I suppose its fitting considering the Fall 2011 collection was set amidst black smoking rocks.

The colors look nice but I’ve always favored flat color to pearly shades (with the exception of Black Pearl because well, it’s supposed to look like pearl!) Le Vernis will be in stores in July.  What do you think of the colors? Will you get them?  Which is your favorite?

  1. I will be picking up all three! They are beautiful, my favourite in the pic is Graphite, I just love those dark grey shades. I think Quartz looks similar to Trapeze which was released Christmas 2009.

    I have only just managed to order the Summer shades (they are always out a month after the US here in the UK) so I can’t wait to give those a try when they arrive.

    Thanks for posting this! Do you have any info on the rest of the make-up collection yet?

  2. Hi Alison,
    The only other info I have is posted here: http://lachanelphile.com/2011/03/09/chanel-fall-winter-20112012-beaute/
    It just lists the items used to create the looks in the runway show. Chanel will probably send info with more info on the actual products closer to the release. I’ll post it as soon as I have more info.

    And speaking of similar colors, I’d be curious to see Black Pearl next to Graphite.
    :) G

  3. I think the colour of Graphite looks similar to Black pearl but with a different finish. It would be very interesting to see them side by side.
