chanel, runway, paris, ready-to-wear, aw 09, green nail polishPlease, please, please tell me this shade will make its way to Chanel counters. If I get any confirmation on this you’ll be the first to know. Peter Philips, I already heart you for all the amazing shades you’ve put out this past year… make my day by putting out a green! My sad old bottle of Vert Sacrilege wants a lighter, brighter sister to hang with in my green drawer.

What do you think kids? I’ll wear a color no matter the season but how do you feel about a springy green for Fall? Yay or nay?

    I LOVE GREEN FOR ALL SEASONS!!!! I’m praying this actually comes to counters!!

  2. Cee says:

    Hmm.. Im not sure! I have that dark for fall/light for spring mentality!
    But it’s a cool color!

  3. Margeaux says:

    I L.O.V.E this shade!! I have been looking for just this shade and coverage- I bought a minty color in the Piggy Toes (or something like that ) nail color and I do not like it…its kind of watery and just can’t get right! First time trying their brand and I’m over it.

  4. Kerri says:

    I love it! Adds such a beautiful point of interest to the black ensembles. I’d wear it for fall! Please, Chanel, give us green!

  5. candita says:

    If that is a creme and not a shimmer, I will totally be all over it.

  6. CincyFan says:

    Rob – Green for all seasons, indeed!

    Cee – I don’t blame you. The winter blahs bring out the dark lover in all of us. Though I did like rockin’ a light gray nail. Maybe if the green is dirty enough, it will seem fall.

    Margeaux – You know, I have a ton of Piggy Polish but haven’t actually worn any of it. I rarely get near an ULTA but when I do, I get sucked into buying more that I never get around to wearing. Sorry it let you down.

    Kerri – I agree. With the jade colored jewelry and touches of green and pink in the clothes, that polish plays perfectly with it all.

    Candita – I agree. I’d want a creme as well.

  7. Cat says:

    Ooooooh… I would totally wear that color. I’m thinking the green polish from MAC’s upcoming Sugarsweet collection looks something like that? Maybe?

  8. CincyFan says:

    Cat – Someone just brought that shade to my attention. I haven’t seen it but now I’m curious.

  9. Steph says:

    OMG – Green?! Pinch me, I must be dreaming!

  10. Anonymous says:

    I think MAC is releasing a very similar color in a creme finish with the sugar sweet collection

  11. Gene says:

    I'm wearing this shade of green – OPI's 'Hey Get in Lime' right now. Love it cos its so pretty & easy to match!

  12. Diana says:

    I never buy Chanel as it’s pricier than I’m willing to accept for polish, but if this comes out this year I may have to cave. I’ve been on the hunt for a good pastel mint for months (one that is neither too limey or too aqua) and haven’t found the right one.

  13. Erin says:

    I will buy this IMMEDIATELY if Chanel releases it!!!!!! I want it!!!!!!!!!

  14. clockwork says:

    Oh I’m also hoping this comes to the counter!

  15. WendyCity says:

    Going green coming to fashion in yet another form. Green is by far one of my favorite colors when I am getting my nails done. Next time I make it to my Chicago Nail Spa I will be thinking green and JIT for St. Patty!

  16. Tiso says:

    Beautiful – I’m totally there.

  17. Eneundae says:

    I ironically indulge on Chanel lip glosses, but I find their nail polishes as ‘too expensive’. I think this will be my first Chanel nail polish purchase if this came out. I don’t want to make the same mistake like I did with Kaleidoscope. Before I know it, it’s gonna be sold out and hit evilBay.

  18. Jen says:

    I absolutely adored it as well! So unexpected :)

    i just discovered ur site i really dont know how it works i just have a few questions on how you keep ur nails looking that great ?
    do u get them done ?
    please answer asap : )

  20. Leah says:

    I saw this and just about DIED. The collection was gorgeous, obviously but those nails are what really stood out to me!! Please please please pleeeeease put this on counters Chanel! I can’t decide if I should just dupe it with OPI’s Hey! Get in Lime or hold out in case I can eventually get the real deal. It’s just so unique, so perfect. If you find out whether this will be in stores please fill us in, I’m dying to know!!

  21. Jennifer Jewels says:

    I love the whole addition of the wintergreen and pale pink that Karl incorporated into the fall collection. as a fan of pairing black and white, i’d wear this wintergreen all year round to add a pop of color to my wardrobe.

  22. Anne Maxime says:

    I would so buy that. I love mint green!
