Chanel launched jade nail polish, first seen on their Fall 2009 runway, last week at Fashion’s Night Out (thanks to Stylelist for the tip). They offered mini-manicures with the color at one of their New York stores and the shade is now available at chanel.com. If you don’t rush to it though, it made be hard to get your hands on a full-size bottle of the polish to take home and paint your nails yourselves.
This is where I have to tell you an embarrassing fashion obsession secret of mine – I saw that polish on the Chanel runway last year and I really, really wanted it. Of course, I had no idea how to go about getting a bottle, seeing as it didn’t really exist, so I just made it myself. Quite successfully, I might add, and for less money (even with buying two bottles of polish) than the Chanel one will probably cost.
Not up for making your own? Score a bottle on eBay.
