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?

  • Show Studio has a sneak peek of the Spring 2011 collection – I love the details especially the ladybugs!  ShowStudio.

  • Karl says who he’d like to take his place at Chanel via WWD:

In an interview in Numero’s November issue, Lagerfeld replied: “I have a contract for life so it all depends on who I would like to hand it to. At the moment I’d say Haider Ackermann.” Lagerfeld has recently been enamored of Ackermann’s fashions, and had invited him to attend the most recent Chanel show. Ackermann reacted by saying, “What can one possibly say to such a phrase?! Such a compliment! Honored I feel, how can one not be?! In all honesty tremendously, immensely touched especially coming from Monsieur Lagerfeld.”
