Chanel Magic nail polish is one of two new, limited edition nail polish colors from Chanel’s fall/winter 2013/2014 special collection “Nuit Magique.” This beautiful, dark yet sparkling collection was inspired by Chanel’s own autumn/winter runway, ready-to-wear runway collection. Magic by Chanel is a deep, dark blue which is the perfect shade of navy in a cream nail polish.

Chanel Magic nail polish is a brilliant segway from fall’s Alchimie and Mysterious nail polish colors by Chanel. This classic navy blue hue blends well with both winter’s color palette and resort’s brighter color palette which includes shades of blue as well as hues such as pink and green that play well with navy blue nail polish. Love that!

In addition to working with the current color trends, Chanel Magic nail polish is a dark color which will prepare nail fans for what is to come this spring; black nail polish. That’s right! Chanel will be re-promoting Black Satin nail polish in spring 2014. Remember when “Black Satin” came out the first time and it sold out in stores within 24 hours? Grab a bottle now before history repeats itself!

I tested out Chanel Magic nail polish with one base coat and two coats of colors; no top coat. The polish is dark so it shows chips easily. Magic by Chanel only lasted four days on my nails, but to its’ credit, I did a lot of housecleaning during those four days so I may have sped up the chipping process. If I had used a top coat, Chanel Magic nail polish would have lasted longer on my nails without chipping.

Chanel Magic nail polish is limited edition and a beautiful blue hue! If you are a blue fan like me, grab a bottle before it is too late! Chanel Magic is priced at $27 and can be found at Chanel Boutiques as well as

There are other navy blue options for nail polish at softer price points. Here are a few beautiful dark blues and navy blues which won’t break the bank.
