Pictured: Chanel Chaine Or nail polish from the longwear polish collection.

Chanel Chaine Or nail polish is a beautiful, bold, gold nail polish hue from Chanel’s new, and reformulated, longwear nail polish collection. This bright, gold hue is perfect to wear now, as we move into warmer weather, and again during the holiday season. It is a light-hearted, festive nail polish shade perfect for celebrating holidays, or life in general!

The Chanel long wear nail polish collection includes fifteen new, reformulated nail polishes in both new colors, and best-selling colors. The improved, 5-free formula, includes bioceramics, and ceramides which are known to improve the quality of the nail. I love the fact that Chanel nail polishes are made from good, safe ingredients which are not harmful, yet still deliver a chip-free manicure experience.

Chaine Or nail polish by Chanel is a fabulous first color to try from the new longwear collection. It is a versatile color which is easy to wear on a daily basis, or for special occasions. Gold matches everything! Love that!

I tested out Chanel Chaine Or nail polish with one base coat, two coats of longwear color, and one top coat. The new nail polish formula performed just as well as it’s predecessor. When my nails grew after one week, I changed my nail polish which was chip-free, due to my nail growth. I love long lasting polish!

Chanel Chaine Or longwear nail polish is a bold, bright gold hue which is anything but shy. This color is definitely attention getting, and fun to wear! It sparkles in the sunshine, and enhances any metal color ring. I love the look of metallic nail polish when paired with a bold, statement ring. It really brings all the colors together beautifully.

I am really excited about Chanel’s new longwear nail polish collection. There are so many colors, I am not sure I will be able to buy them all. I will pick out a few, and review them for you. If you see any colors from the collection you would like me to review, please let me know in the comments below. In the meantime, enjoy Chanel Chaine Or nail polish!

Fall 2012 fashion trends: Black and Gold

Black and yellow gold, worn together, dominated the runways in Paris, Milan, New York and London for the fall/winter 2012/2013 season. The classic combination, which was most memorable on the Dolce & Gabbana runway, offers many options for Fashionistas in the upcoming cool weather.

There are so many different ways to wear black and gold together, which is what makes this trend easy to follow for fall 2012; and possibly easy on the wallet. Many Fashionistas have an abundant amount of black clothing, and since yellow gold jewelry is classic, many fashion-savvy dressers may very well have at least one necklace or pair of earrings in the golden hue. This makes the black and gold trend easy to follow just by shopping one’s closet and pulling together black items and gold jewelry.

Of course, the black and gold trend can also be worn in an edgier way than classic black clothing and gold jewelry. Metallic accessories such as shoes and handbags can be found in yellow gold and paired with black apparel. And, the opposite can be done with gold apparel paired with black shoes and a black handbag.

The fashion-forward way to wear black and gold this fall 2012 season is to emulate what we saw on the runways. Designers created black apparel embellished with gold embroidery, threads and beadwork which added a rich and decadent feeling to the color combination.

There are so many ways to wear black and gold together this fall 2012 season. This is definitely a trend which can be found inside your closet, or can be shopped for guilt-free since black and gold are classic hues.
We found a few fabulous black and gold items around the web and assembled them into the Polyvore below. Hope you love it! Happy shopping and stay fabulous
