I’m noticing a few brands have these lovely nude to cocoa nail colors for fall/holiday season. And you might make the argument that brown is brown. But as you’ve probably learned by now that there’s 50 shades of anything and the uber chic polishes in this post are so different from each other that I though of putting these promo photos all in one place. I will definitely do a separate post on the actual polishes as soon as Le Metier de Beaute’s polishes arrive in store.
Let’s take a look…
Laura Mercier came out with theirs first as part of their Fall 2012 Cinema Noir Collection…
followed by the Dior Vernis Nude as part of the Dior’s Nude Collection
and coming up real soon is Le Metier de Beaute’s Cocoa Crazed Collection
Are you indulging in this very trendy yet classic for your tips and toes? It’s a classic therefore a no-brainer for me. Just waiting for Le Metier de Beaute’s collection to arrive and I’m all set 🙂
I am a huge fan of Chanel Nail Polishes. I collect their seasonal offerings. And pictured above is their limited edition, Summer 2012 collection. The colors doesn’t really say summer to me but I like them nonetheless.
For todays blog post I will be talking about the shade Island from Chanel’s summer 2012 collection. I am going out of my comfort zone and posting a pic of my nails, they are not perfect and while my t-zone is oily, the rest of my body is actually dry and my fingers are not spared so pardon the dry skin. Now going back to the business at hand, I find this shade very “frosty”. So to tone down the “frostiness” I used a matte top coat, also from Chanel. The end result is a very beautiful nude pearly beige that’s a matte metallic, if that’s even possible. I love it!

Chanel’s matte top coat proves to be very useful in situations like this. This shade is actually multi-purpose, for a more holiday type of events you can use it as is and to make it less obtrusive and more everyday friendly top it with a matte top coat.
It is limited edition and is priced at $25. Available anywhere Chanel is sold.
