Leave it to Chanel to make baby poo/army green into a nail polish that looks downright effin’ cool to me. Last year, they stormed my beaches with another gorgeous green, Jade, forever and always my five-star general of Chanel polishes, but the three shades in the new limited edition Les Khaki de Chanel collection ($25 each) are bringing up the rear.
I like it when beauty products appear to combine contrasting concepts, and I think the rugged, outdoorsy elegance of Khaki Vert (a creamy army green), Khaki Rose (a creamy, rosy brown) and Khaki Brun (a creamy, cool brown) just…works.
These are well-groomed thugs wearing tuxedos, y’all, and I hope to see them gracing fingers and toes this fall.
Let me know what you think! 🙂
Like other Chanel lacquers I’ve tried, these three feel thicker than the average nail polish and consequently take a little longer to dry (excellent coverage and durability; two coats deliver opaque color with nary a streak). They won’t rock everyone’s boat, but girls (and boys) who like Chanel and don’t want to go the glitter route may want to give them a try… I tool around town in camo cargo pants and have an unabashed weakness for khaki green, so these are right up my alley.

New York Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow, again, already — can you believe it? I won’t be there in person, but I plan to follow the shows online, you know, to look for makeup and beauty trends. 🙂
I can’t WAIT to find out which of the Project Runway designers make it to the final three tomorrow. If Gretchen’s among ’em, I may projectile puke.
