Chanel-Inspired Mani

August 30, 2012

Who doesn’t love Chanel?

This nail design is a tribute to the great house of fashion. Some things I painted are Chanel items I have and some are still in my wish list (hint hint hubby, I want that Chanel 5171 sunglasses).

Read on to find step-by-step detailed instruction on how to do this Chanel-inspired mani!

What you’ll need:

  1. American Apparel Nail Polish, in Hassid
  2. American Apparel Metallic Nail Polish, in Siver Jazz
  3. So Easy Stripe Rite Paint, in white
  4. Milani Nail Art Lacquer, in Art of Gold
  5. OPI Start To Finish (Base & Top Coat)

How to do it:

  1. Start off with painting your nails with a clear base, then paint them black. Optional: you can also paint one of your nails silver, if you prefer.
  2. For my pinkie, I painted series of dots to make up my Chanel pearl necklace.
  3. For my index finger, the most importan thing of all: Chanel logo!
  4. For my thumb, I painted the bow that goes in the Chanel 5171 sunglasses.
  5. Finish off your masterpiece with a top-coat for a super shiny look!
