Well this is rare! After releasing the holiday 2017 nail polish collection, Chanel has released a special collection of limited edition nail polishes for the winter 2018 season. This rare, winter collection, is comprised of three, green-based nail colors which are named after numbers that had a special meaning for Coco Chanel. Love this!
Every season, Chanel creates colors based upon the clothing collection for that particular season. These nail polish collections typically reflect the color palette Chanel is showing for that particular season. This time around, Chanel has released a collection based upon lucky numbers which have a special meaning for Coco Chanel. I love collections like this!
The last time I invested in a special piece by Chanel which was reflective of something that meant a lot to her, I purchased a black “Puzzle Pieces” tote. Remember that collection from over ten years ago? It was based upon a quilt Coco had created, and Karl Lagerfeld later discovered, in her archives. The collection had been a nod to her love of quilting fashioned after the puzzle piece quilt. This nail polish collection feels just as special.
There is something else different about the Chanel winter 2018 nail polish collection. The brush! The cylindrical brush we have all come to know and love is a thing of the past. Chanel has jumped on the flat brush bandwagon and designed a flat application brush. This brush is a bit longer, and leaner, then other brushes we have seen on the market; allowing it to brush the nail polish on evenly, without getting the skin around your nail all messed up. Love that!
Without further ado, here are the three green hues for winter 2018 from the Chanel Collection Chiffree nail polish line..
Chanel winter 2018 nail polish – Chanel Vert No. 22 – Collection Chiffree
Chanel Vert no. 22 nail polish is a dark grey with a green tinge. This is my favorite color from the collection. Vert no. 22 by Chanel is a beautiful neutral hue created in a cream nail polish. I used one base coat, and two coats of color. The polish applied evenly, without streaking. This is the perfect color to wear with the camo trend of the moment. Love it!
Chanel winter 2018 nail polish – Chanel Vert No. 31 – Collection Chiffree
This is a sassy, deep, dark green nail polish. Chanel Vert no. 31 offers a late fall, green look which is dark enough to carry you through winter. This polish needed one base coat, and three coats of color. It was a little bit streaky after the second coat, but the third coat gave it the perfect even hue you see above. Chanel Vert no. 31 nail polish is a beautiful color. Love it!
Chanel winter 2018 nail polish – Chanel Vert No. 19 – Collection Chiffree
How pretty is Chanel Vert no 19 nail polish! This is the perfect color to wear towards the end of the winter season. It will transition well into resort, and spring, since this color was found on the resort runways. I plan on wearing it at the end of January and into February when my wardrobe starts to transition to spring. I tested Vert no 19 by Chanel out with one base coat and two coats of color. It is a cream polish which applies evenly to perfection. Love!
