Gotta Have It: Chanel Black Velvet
Black nail polish? Yes, and it’s rather amazing.
Upon first hearing of Chanel’s newest Black Velvet nail color for spring, we weren’t sure if it would be love at first sight or run like hell. Who were we kidding? It’s Chanel. Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld would never approve of anything that was short of fashion genius. Le Vernis Nail Colour in Black Velvet is part of the French house’s limited edition Paris-Shanghai Collection, inspired by Shanghai in the 1930s and 40s— as Coco Chanel herself may have imagined it. We love the matte black polish, it’s perfect for us drama gals. The nail polish is $25, and waiting for you at Chanel.com.
