It’s said that the fashion world moves fast, but Chanel has literally outpaced itself with the release of their Russian Nights nail polish collection.
To wit: In early December, Karl Lagerfeld and Co. presented Chanel’s pre-fall collection, which looked like Byzantine empire-meets-Anastasia
, only with bigger headdresses. Although the clothing won’t be arriving in stores for a while (we have to make it through spring and summer first), the nail polish just became available.
The limited edition set includes three jewel-toned colors, each more opulent than the last. They make us think that our obsession with gold polish won’t be ending anytime soon. But they’re also proof that the fashion world can’t keep up with itself. Imagine: You could own a piece of pre-fall ’09 before even packing away your fall ’08 items.
