Inspired by: Chanel Fall 2012 Couture Nails

Few days ago I was spending my time on Tumblr checking nail art pictures, when I spotted this gorgeous manicure. Of course I googled more for details and after seeing more detailed pictures, I knew I had to try it myself. The manicure I'm talking about was done by Chanel and here's a picture.

http://www.vogue.co.uk
For the autumn/winter 2012-13 couture show, nails were painted in a limited-edition Silver shade from 2007, before spring 2012's May was applied in an oval shape.
Two colors that were used on Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2012 runway were Silver (2007, discontinued) and May (Spring 2012). 

I don't own any of those, well I actually don't have any Chanel's nail polishes, because they're too expensive, so I decided to make something similar. :i


Two colors I decided to use were China Glaze Cheers to You and OPI Sparrow me the Drama. This is some kind of ruffian manicure but a lot easier version, because there is more free edge on sides of nails and with a flat brush like OPI has, you're done in 3 brush strokes. :) 

I made lines even cleaner with brush soaked in remover. I gently removed the pink where needed without ruining the silver foil underneath, because foils really stick on nails. Of course you can always apply top coat over silver and before pink. to be really sure you won't ruin the base color with brush and remover.

China Glaze - Cheers to You / 2 coats

I'm very excited to post this manicure today and I hope you'll like it too. :i I did my best to show you my both hands, but nothing can't compare to the original though... So, all you need is a metallic or foil silver and bubblegum pink and you can rock these as models did. ^_^

Let me know what do you think about Chanel's nails, would you wear them? :) Thanks for reading! :h

  20. You did an awesome job. I don't trust my steadiness to replicate it, though.

  21. I really like the result! And you are using cruelty free polishes, which Chanel isn't, so yours is way better :)

  22. carsko..! sm tvoja redna "gledalka" bloga, samo nimam teh profilov, ampak tole morm komentirat, ker je res lepo.. nedavno sm vidla nekej podobnega ob stalkanju fotkic, samo sm mela občutek da je tak okrogel gradient, spodaj je bila bolj mlečna barva.. i guess this one is more simple. :) eno vprašanje - s kakšnim čopičem si odstranjuješ odvečni lak..? jaz mam dejansko nekega od essence za v-cuts, sam me zanima če je kakšn bolj optimalen. :) lp

    1. Hvala! :$
      Uporabljam čopič iz art trgovine, ki je podoben čopiču za eyeliner, ampak je neprimerljivo trši, zato mi je tako všeč (imam pa ga še iz osnovne šole :i ). Lahko ga vidiš tukaj čisto na koncu. :) Je pa odvisno, kaj tebi najbolj odgovarja. Mislim, da s kakšnim majhnim prirezanim čopičem ne moreš zgrešiti pa pomoje tudi (pre)dragi niso. Upam, da sem ti kaj v pomoč. ^_^

  32. Perfect! Totally an Ivana manicure ♥. Really compliments your nailshape too.

  33. Yeah, your mani came out way better than the others I've seen on the net! I tried it out with less success (using a lighter shade by OPI). But, my nails are shorter now too. This has inspired me to try again later once my nails are a tad longer.. with a darker pink. Thanks for sharing!
