Chanel Les Harmonies de Printemps Spring 2012 Makeup Collection
Chanel’s spring 2012 makeup collection, “Les Harmonies de Printemps”, is delicate and accentuates a woman’s natural beauty. The collection features many soft pinks and peaches with some notes of deeper color like garnet and plum. “Les Harmonies de Printemps” will be in stores early 2012 in late January/early February. The collection is very pretty and is perfect for spring and summer when makeup tends to be lighter and more natural. I am a lip balm addict so I can not wait for the Rouge Coco Baume! I’m also excited for the June nail polish – looking forward to this collections release!

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?

Vampire Lips: Les Noirs de Chanel Rouge Allure Lipsticks

Chanel has released Les Noir de Chanel, a collection of dark, seductive lip colors fit for a style maven – or vampire.  Inspired by Mlle. Chanel’s love of the color black, the three colors -  Maniac, Hysteria and Obscure – coordinate with their nail colors Rouge Noir, Vendetta and Madness.  I love the depth of color and the personality these shades evoke.  They say that in times of economic crises sales of lip color go up because it’s a more economical way to update a look.  If that’s true, then these colors are perfect now.  You can find the perfect shade for your mood here.

V is for Vendetta: Chanel’s Newest Nail Obsession

Vendetta by Chanel
Vendetta by Chanel

Last month I wrote about the Chanel Paris-Moscou collection of nail color and I was confused how a royal color such as purple wasn’t included in a collection heavily influenced by the folklore and charm of Czarist Russia.  I went to a Chanel boutique a over the holiday break to pick up Or de Russe (“Russian Gold”) and I found my reason why:  Chanel DOES have a very regal purple as part of their Spring collection so I guess they didn’t want to double up.  It doesn’t matter to me what collection it’s a part of.  I’m just happy that Chanel’s newest shade, Vendetta, is here.  Vendetta is a gorgeous, deep violet with just the right amount of shimmer.  I normally don’t like shimmery nail polish and always opt for matte nail color, but Chanel always manages to give you just a touch of shimmer that’s the perfect amount.  And, what a great name!  This color is not for sissies!  You can purchaseVendetta at Chanel boutiqes and online here.

Chanel La Collection Paris-Moscou Nail Colours

La Vernis: Collection Paris-Moscou

Last week we told you about Chanel’s Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2009 Collection, inspired by the Russia of the past, and all of its folklore, history and charm. A collection would not be complete without must-have, of-the-moment nail colour by Chanel. For the Paris-Moscou collection, Karl Lagerfeld chose 3 jewel-tones colors “that evoke the riches of the Russian Empire” called: Feu de Russe (“Russian Fire”), Nuit de Russe (“Russian Night”) and Or de Russe (“Russian Gold”). The colors are beautiful and have so much shine that there’s a certain irredescence about them. I always love jewel tones in the autumn, and now ladies, we have the perfect jewel-toned shades for our nails. I wish there was an opulent purple. That’s my only complaint, but I would love to have all of these colors. You can get them online now here and they retail for $30 each.

Chanel Limited Edition Nail Colors

To celebrate the opening of a new Chanel store in Los Angeles next month, Chanel is introducing 4 limited edition nail colors. Inspired by famous streets and the pop-art colors of sunny skies and surf, the polishes are called appropriately enough – Melrose, Rodeo Drive, LA Sunrise, and LA Sunset. The limited edition colors will be available in store and then online beginning in June. I need to get down to LA in May – I really need the Robertson Boulevard purple!

Blue is the New Black

Out with the old and in with the blue…nail polish that is! If you’re a little tired of black or red polish try one of the many blue polishes out that range from from dark metallics to lighter electric blues.

Last year Chanel Black Satin was all the rage and this year Chanel has introduced Blue Satin. Word on the streets is that this pretty blue bottle is selling out fast, so run to a luxury retailer or Chanel boutique near you before it is completely sold out.


Peep the pics after the jump of other polish options that range in color and in price, from $0.99 to $8.
