This is the nail colour you’ll want to wear next

Nikki Parkinson Beauty 35 Comments

I don’t need to harness any beauty clairvoyant powers to tell you what colour you are going to be itching to put on your nails next.

No, Chanel has done that for me.

Or more specifically, Chanel’s creative director of makeup, Peter Philips.

This genius of a man created a white pearly nail polish exclusively for the Chanel spring/summer ready to wear 2012 show to work back with the underwater fairytale feeling of the whole show that featured a whole lot of white, pearls and shine.

Chanel has called this new colour Attraction and announced that it will be put into production and launched with the Lèvres Scintillantes Collection in April next year.

The new nail colour we’ll all want: Chanel Le Vernis Attraction

I may not be able to afford the Chanel bag, but I can do the nail colour

Here’s an idea, though.

Given that we’re launching into our spring-summer now, why not jump-start this nail colour trend with a similar colour already on the market? Are you seeing where I’m going with this? Who says we have to wait for the European and US spring-summer season?

Here are four options for you that you can buy right now:

Want white nails this summer? Try these on before Chanel Attraction becomes available.

 1. Orly Shimmer in Meringue $18.95. Ph 1300 769 355 | 2. CND Colour in Brilliant White $19.95 layered underneath CND Effects in Gold Pearl$24.95. Ph 1800 449 109 |  3. OPI in Kyoto Pearl $19.95. David Jones and selected salons. Ph 1800 358 999 |  4. Essie Marshmallow $18.95. Myer and selected salons. Ph 02 9477 6900

What do you think of this white nail? Have you been seduced by the Chanel colour trend before (hint: if you’ve ever worn a taupe-grey-beige colour you have Chanel’s launch of Particuliere on the catwalk on 2009 to thank for that)? What nail colour are you currently rocking?

  1. Found a matt suede nail polish by Revlon at Myer. Very different look to the usual gloss polish, but I quite like it – will look great in summer. I bought Powder Puff colour, looked white in the bottle, but a bit lilac on.

  2. I’m not sure I can pull the pearly white off, so I’ve always gone for a vibrant colour. I always feel like I’m wearing white out on my nails like we did back in high school 😉

  3. It seems to do the rounds every few years Nikki. I can remember wearing it in the 80’s with a mod look I had happening. I must say I’m still partial to a very pale, pearlised pink on my fingernails but anything goes on my toe nails. I love dark reds, purples, pale blue, stickers and diamontes. That’s what I love about summer sandals. (Mind you, it’s just a dream of mine to have lovely manicured hands and feet. LOL)

    Maybe I’ll just skip navy and go straight to the OPI Kyoto Pearl it looks so pretty, so clean and crisp.

  6. I used to have white toenails every summer for a few years. I thought it looked fabulous with a light tan. I might just have to go back to it this year. Can’t believe I was ahead of a trend!
