Chanel Summer 2015: Le Vernis Nail Colour in Méditerranée and Another Fun Color Combination to Try

Teal and yellow, babe. Teal and yellow.

I originally envisioned only taking pics of this teal Chanel Summer 2015 Le Vernis Nail Colour in Méditerranée with this beige bag (from the pamelabarskyshop on Etsy), because for some reason, in my mind, I thought that the teal in the dress plus the teal on my nails would be more than enough color.

But then I looked a little closer at the colors in my dress, and I kept noticing the yellow there in the flowers winking at me, like, “Hello! Look at me, Karen! Don’t I look cute with teal?” and that was that. The beige was no longer doing it for me, LOL!

One bright yellow Kate Spade wallet later…

I love this combo! I think it works here because both the teal and yellow are similarly intense, like having two divas do a well-balanced duet on stage.

Or something like that. Honestly, I just saw the two together and got that tingly feeling that happens when I know something’s probably gonna work. 🙂

I’m wearing two coats of the polish — a creamy, intense bright teal that reminds me of large bodies of deep water. It’s a limited edition shade in Chanel’s new Collection Méditerranée, available now at Chanel counters and online.


I found it really easy to work with, too. Seriously, I painted my nails practically in the dark before going to bed the other night, and they turned out quite well, considering that I could barely see anything.

No streaks, no drama, just smooth sailing all the way.

I bet you could even get away with one coat.

P.S. To paraphrase R. Kelly…it’s the freakin’ weekend, baby. I’m about to have me some fun. 🙂 Except without the Cristal. But I think will have a glass of TJ’s Santa Barbara Landing Riesling.

I hope you’re having a great night, whatever you’re up to. Talk to you soon.

    I was so close to buying Terrana when I went to the Chanel counter (ended up going home with Olivine which is even more beautiful in person!).

    I’m a sucker for Chanel nail polish. I used to buy a bottle from every seasonal launch!

      Hi Elena,

      Please tell me you have the mother of all Chanel limited edition shades, Jade! It’s my favorite one of all time.

      • Elena says:

        I think when Jade came out 1. I was a broke college student and 2. Wasn’t into any high end makeup at all! Lol. Like I was beginning to venture into it but mainly stayed with mid-range stuff like benefit and too faced

        I wish I bought jade! It looks beautiful!

    This teal is speaking to me! I also like Lavanda le from Chanel. I can’t decide between this and Lavanda but I’m leaning to this.

    Gorgeous color Karen! I struggle to find a good blue nail color for my skintone and always usually end up with some pastel.. but I think I can work with this one! 🙂

      Hi Lena,

      White might be cool if you have a pair of white pants around. Or how about a dark jean? I’m thinking maybe something neutral so that the teal/yellow can really pop.

      If you do end up wearing the combo send me a pic!

    Gahhhh stop showing me all this pretty polish! I’ve changed the color on my nails twice in less than 2 weeks which is a lot for me lol. Idk why I’m so nail crazy right now

    Oh so pretty on you, and with that Kate Spade- just hell to the YES!!! Chanel blues are so gorgeous. I keep thinking I don’t need this, it is so close to my Bobbi Brown Turquoise(love!). But then I see swatches like yours. I am going to wait for the new Chanel blues to arrive next month and re-group. I hope Mediterrane is still around by then!

  8. I like pairing teal with peach on my eyes these days, looks very bright and summery.

    I LOVE your dress!!!! Where can I get one???

  10. Debra says:

    The blue belongs to the future! I got this one for my birthday from Dear Daughter.

    And just cause I need coral red in my life, I bought Coquelicot and the Insoumise Rouge Coco Shine.

    Cheers to you, my dear -teal is for real! Add some Taylor Dayne to it (“I’ll Always Love You” and “Love Will Lead You Back”) – but not the early stuff — she is positively frightening!

    I really think Mediterranee is destined to be the Jade of today.

    I got too distracted by that lovely cuff bracelet you are sporting to notice the nail color 😀 Where is it from?
