NOTD: Chanel Couture Fall 2012

Day 10!

I originally saw this design courtesy of Polish you Pretty found here, they have a great website with nail tutorials and ideas and I browse through them endlessly wishing I had the time, patience and skill to try them out!

What intrigued me about this design was its simplicity and the ability to change the colours to suit ANY occasion and still have your manicure looking the business.

Interestingly, this is Chanel’s first every nail art and I’m so glad they stuck to what they know with a simple design!

I used Model’s Own Champagne for the base coat.

Normally I use 2 coats of this but as it was underneath I felt that one coat was enough, though ideally I would still use two to get the full effect of the metallic shine!

Then I used the orange Nails Inc colour that came with In Style a few months ago (maybe last year?!)

It was my first ever orange nail colour and I haven’t looked back, in fact I may even use this one up one day I love it that much!

It’s a really easy simple design to do that you can easily swap and change colours, effects etc for whatever occasion.

I’m looking forward to trying this with a neon pink underneath a super shiny black top coat, and also you can experiment using a matte top coat for sneaky bit of shine at the base!

It’s currently my favourite nail design!

What do you think about Chanel’s new foray into the nail art world? What colours would you pick?
