Spring 2012 nail polish trends: the IT Chanel shade is in

Move over Chanel Peridot and Rouge Carat, Chanel’s spring 2012 nail polish colors have hit store shelves and just like every season, the three new shades, April, May and June are flying off of store shelves. While we revealed April, May and June by Chanel earlier in the season, the “IT” color of spring 2012 has been identified and it is sure to send Fashionistas to the nearest beauty counter-stat!

The “IT” color of spring 2012 is Chanel’s June. The creamy, vivid peach color is a softer yet saturated shade of orange; reminiscent of an orange creamsicle. With Pantone’s Tangerine Tango being the “IT” color of 2012, it is only natural that Fashionistas would flock to Chanel June for their nail color. The color offers a creamy yet bright shade which blends well with spring 2012’s overall color palette of Tangerine, bright yellow, pink, cobalt blue, apple green and purple; while working with Paris’s answer to a spring color palette which is a mix of pastels.

Chanel June is an interesting shade of creamy orange. When the color is set against shade of pink, it takes on a pinkish-orange tone which appears to take on a dark pastel shade. When worn with orange, Chanel June takes on a more orange-tone hue which appears slightly brighter than pastel and ventures into brighter pastures. June by Chanel is definitely a versatile shade of orange which can be worn easily with spring 2012’s bright colors, pastels, floral prints and contemporary prints; basically the color works with all trends! Love that!

The second most sought after shade from Chanel’s spring 2012 nail polish collection is April. Chanel’s April is a shade of red which seems as if it has a combination of fuchsia and purple infused into the polish. The cool shade of red blends well with spring 2012’s color palette; except when worn with shades of orange, which it slightly clashes with.

Lastly, if red and orange are not your thing, May is a cool shade of pink which works well with spring’s color trends and offer s feminine and sweet color choice.

So the verdict is in. To have the ultimate, up-to-the-minute shade of nail polish gracing your fingertips, run, don’t walk to the nearest Chanel Boutique, Neiman  Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom or Macy’s and pick up a bottle of Chanel April nail polish for spring 2012. To achieve the ultimate color saturation, we recommend using three coats.

Happy shopping, and stay fabulous
