    diy chanel khaki nails

    our at-home homage to chanel's hot new shades.

    Thanks to our constant mani-curiousity, we've learned a thing or two about nail trends.  Things like, Chanel's new polish colors are so unique, they usually require a double-take.

    So when hearing the French fashion-house plans to launch three new shades in honor of New York's upcoming Fashion's Night Out (September 10th), we tried to keep this in mind.  And just like with Particulière and Nouvelle Vague, Chanel's khaki-inspired lacquer made us think, "Can we really pull this off?"

    It took a few tries and a lot of patience to mix the perfect shades in homage to Chanel, but we definitely nailed it. 

    Our three concoctions:

    Main color: Use Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails in “Chocolate”
    Add: Brucci Nail Hardener in “Crème De Cocoa”
    And a drop of: American Apparel's “Summer Peach”

    Main color: American Apparel's “Summer Peach”
    Add: Brucci Nail Hardener in “Crème De Cocoa”
    And a drop of: Any bright green

    Main color: Brucci Nail Hardener in “Crème De Cocoa”
    Add: American Apparel's “Summer Peach”
    And a drop of: Any bright red

    Want the real deal? Get them on September 8 - Fashion's Night Out! - at Chanel.
