Chanel Makeup Fall 2011


I'm kind of a nail polish addict (from a young age!), so when I saw these new colours from Chanel, particularly Graphite, I knew I had to add them to my collection. I was too impatient to wait until they got released here, so I ordered them from Saks. They are pretty unique colours when you see them on the nail. Graphite and Peridot are my favourite, but even Quartz is a bit different from other polishes of the same shade- it has very very fine duo-chrome glitter/shimmer.


I also ordered the Prelude palette- a quad of neutrals with a very very fine and subtle shimmer. Neutrals are pretty much all I wear unless I feel particularly motivated and inspired to wear something a bit bolder. I have another Chanel neutral quad (Quatuor Boutons De Chanel) that runs warmer, while Prelude runs more cool/neutral. These neutral quads are perfect for traveling- everything you need in a glossy black compact little cube.

This was a beautiful collection. Why must they be so pricey! I can't wait to get my grubby hands on them.

Ooh the browns in that palette look stunning! My current Chanel favourite is the nail polish in Orange Fizz - great for summer.

The opaline sheen on "Peridot" is just lovely.

Chanel has the nicest packaging but I found their nail polish to chip easily

I love these colors! So addicted to Chanel nail colors, have been trying to be good but I feel myself weakening.


The Peridot is beautiful. I get hypnotized by anything beetle-y colored like that.
