Nail Art & Savvy Chanel Nail Colors

Recently I am on this purple bandwagon.  Everything and anything purple and berry in color will get my heart to beat slightly faster. Of course, on our pampering day (massage, long lunch, pedicure and more) with the girls over the weekend, I had my nails painted in purple as well. I have not done nail art before but I sure will do so again in the future. It's amazing what these talented gals can paint on such a tiny canvas with a toothpick. I will try it one of these days by myself since I can paint but we shall see uh.... Sometimes certain things are best left to professionals.
Chanel nail colors are among my favorites. And, these colors are supposedly collectible worthy. I like all the colors except Particuliere because the beige/gray tone doesn't flatter my skin tone as much as I like. My next purchase will be Paradoxal because purple is one of my favorite colors and I am sure it will be super hot for fall/winter. Which are your favorite colors and have you done nail art before?

  1. Oh, you know I've done nail art! Even before my Minx days. I had a thing for it back in 2001. Maybe I should dig those pix up but am not sure how badly people will want to see my toes!

  2. sorry. but I'm not loving the nail art....I think it is a little "jersey shore". The Chanel nail colors on the other hand are gorgeous.

  5. I use to do do tons of nail art back in the day, but not so much anymore. I stick to boring ol' fire engine red on my toes :)

  6. I have not done nail art before, but I must say it is interesting and fun. However I don't think I would do nail art on my hands.

  18. WOW that IS nail art. How long did it take to get this done ?
    I am not a huge fan of nail art but when I do I just get tiny flowers on my big toe and thumb.
    I am currently wearing Chanel's Nouvelle Vague and I am not totally convinced but if I were you I would go Vamp--

  20. Lorena: The gal who did my pedi was really fast. It took her less than 15 minutes to do all 10 toes.
