This leading lady is worthy of a summer tentpole film and a handful of Oscar nominations. Maybe even a sleeper hit that takes Sundance by storm, or a blockbuster rom-com opposite a foppish Brit boy with floppy hair and nice arms.
This Starlet has some serious stage presence. Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Starlet has that certain something I like, that “it” factor that pushes it ahead of so many sweet and summery coral ingenues.
Admittedly, I rarely meet a coral I don’t love or like, and Starlet is no exception. But it differs from most coral shades in that it also leans pink, depending on the light, to showcase more of its rich pink salmon side in the shade and a cherry blossom pink in full sun. It also has subtle opalescent shimmer, which elevates its production value from indie film to Hollywood big budget.
I was so excited to try Starlet the day I brought it home that I actually painted my toes with it in the middle of the night in almost pitch-black darkness before settling down to watch one of our generation’s most esteemed films, Step Brothers (“This is a house of learn-ed doctors”), and passing out on the couch.
Not really being able to see what I was doing because I didn’t want to turn on the lights, I expected to have to re-paint my toes the following morning.
Nope. Turns out I didn’t have to. To my surprise, my toes looked nearly perfect, because Starlet is smooove…
You could be painting your toes with one eye half open in the dark, and there’s a decent chance your pedi would turn out alright.
If you like wearing coral on your tips and toes but have a hard time with orangey versions, Starlet could be something to seriously think about. It’s limited edition, so if you love it, you may want to spring soon.
AVAILABILITY: Limited edition, and available now at Chanel counters and online

We’re halfway there!
This week’s just chugging along, and I’m SO glad.
How was your day? Mine wasn’t bad. It definitely went by quickly. The only thing I did outside of work work was head down to Blue Barn in Corte Madera to have lunch with a friend, Courtney, and that was fun. It was sunny, so we got to eat outside.
What are you up to tonight? Tabs and I are just chillin’ at home.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
