WE NAILED IT
A DIY approach to Chanel's 2010 manicure.
Chanel’s new nail color showed up during their recent runway show, along with sky-high clogs and Lily Allen. The color, called Particulière, looked great alongside the brand’s well-known tweeds and clutches. Designed by their makeup director Peter Philips, the new shade has a purple base with gray and brown undertones.
