Chanel’s Nail Art from Couture Fashion Week: All The Details!Jul 10, 2012 @ 2:05 pm
Chanel has nailed it again! At the label’s Fall Couture Show in Paris, models hit the runway in some seriously covetable nail art. Peter Philips, Chanel’s creative director of makeup, used the Le Vernis in May ($26; chanel.com) all over the nail, then traced the edges with a shimmery pewter lacquer. While the crisp, clean lines look hard to recreate, you can try out this manicure at home with just a few strips of tape! Start with two coats of a shimmery silver lacquer, and once it is dry, apply tape along the bottom and sides of your nail to square off the edges. After the tape is in place, layer on two generous coats of May to fill in the center of your nail bed. Let your mani dry completely before applying or removing the tape. Wet nail polish sticks to the tape, and will end up getting pulled off. Finish with a shiny top coat, and you’re good to go!
