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:

For KHAKI ROSE
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”

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


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