Chanel Les Khakis De Chanel Preview

Ever since UK nail queen Sophy Robson posted a sneak peek at the CHANEL Les Khakis De Chanel collection colors, I’ve been DYING to get some sort of official word regarding their launch. What Sophy originally dubbed the “camouflage collection” is a set of three military shades debuting as a limited edition launch for Fashion’s Night Out on September 10th!

Visit the Chanel Boutique on Spring Street to get a complimentary manicure with one of the Les Khakis De Chanel shades or stop by the Madison Avenue boutique which will be selling the collection as well.

In celebration of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out, Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, has created LES KHAKIS DE CHANEL, a collection of three Le Vernis Nail Colours. Ultra sophisticated shades Khaki Rose, Khaki Brun and Khaki Vert can be worn alone or combined for an urban chic camouflage effect.

The Les Khakis De Chanel collection launches on September 10th, 2010.  It will be available at CHANEL boutiques, and select department stores for $25.00/bottle.

You KNOW I’m all over Khaki Vert but I’m excited to see how they’ll look paired together.  I’m already thinking up some fun way to wear all three while I’m in NYC for FNO.  Which colors are you excited to see?  Will any of my NYC Fanatics be out and about for FNO? Do you think these colors will get the same attention as last year’s FNO color Jade?

Cosmoprof Sneak Peek – Art Club Glam

Coming soon from Color Club/Art Club are these nail decals, called Glam, that are along the lines of Minx but way cooler.  The designs are on a clear background so you can apply them over polish and have the color show through. 

According to the rep I spoke with, you simply apply them and add a top coat.  They last until you take them off with remover.  The plaid and metallic animals prints have me intrigued.  I’m normally not a nail art girl but this looks easy enough that even a klutz like me could do it.

What do you think? Is this something you would try, I’ll update you with launch info as soon as I have it.

gingerkittydesigns-nails-magazine Congratulations to my pal Tracey from GingerKittyDesigns whose Etsy shop was featured in the August issue of Nails Magazine!

Nails did a feature on Etsy stores that sell nail related crafts, perfect for resale in salons or as a gift for the nail tech/fanatic in your life.  If you click on the article (left) you can read the full size version with Tracey’s jewelry pictured on the side.

The other stores that made the list are Sweetheartville, SavDesigns by Vrjinika, The Bohemian Gypsy, Claychicks Boutique and Scentful Indulgence Bath & Body Boutique.

I actually bought a nail themed business card holder from The Bohemian Gypsy and it arrived today.  So cute!

Last year I shared Tracey’s unique line of nail polish jewelry and I’m so happy to see getting the attention it so deserves.  Tracey brilliantly came up with the idea of encapsulating nail polish in a pendant and since then she has expanded into rings and earrings and started incorporating trends like water marbling into her craft.


A fellow nail polish fanatic and collector, Tracey has amassed quite a selection of colors to choose from and can customize any of her designs to your liking. If you haven’t stopped by her shop and picked up a piece for yourself or the Fanatic in your life, it’s time you do so!
