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.
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:
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?
