Hot on the Highstreet Week 48
Scribble 20th May down in your diary as a date to remember... set your alarm to get up extra early, and sprint as fast as you can to your nearest Chanel nail varnish stockist. It is time for their newest limited edition summer range of colours, ‘Les Fleurs D’Ete’.
I have been anticipating the day for a year now, ever since I got my grubby nail bitten fingers on Chanel’s ‘nouvelle vague’ (the luscious turquoise hue that was released last summer). From the three colours above: Beige Petale, Mimosa and Morning Rose, it is the bright banana yellow Mimosa that is set to be the must-have favourite. Every colour has been on the catwalks at some point, but a trend for yellow fingertips has to be the most radical. Paired with a glowing tan and bright outfit, Mimosa is sure to be a success.
If you can’t afford the steep £17 price tag, there are a few sunny alternatives: for a vibrant lemon yellow - go for Nails Inc in ‘Carnaby Street’ (£9.90 online here) and for a creamier tone - try Topshop in ‘Summit’ (£5 buy here). But if you are saving for the Chanel, get there quick, they don’t stick around on the shop floor for long.
