Chanel sets the standard when it comes to fashion and beauty. Theres no question that Chanel sets trends and throughout the years LE VERNIS style-defining shades have done exactly that.

CHANEL LE VERNIS New Case Karen G Nails

I’m excited to share with you the newest collection from Chanel, LE VERNIS Longwear Nail Colour. The formula has been reformulated for a longer lasting, high-shine, 5-free and newly enriched with Bioceramics and Ceramides.

CHANEL LE VERNIS Colour Karen G Nails
The formula is set to deliver protective benefits that will strengthen nails and improve the quality of nails over time and selected pigments that offer an even application for a more dramatic lacquered look.
The most important step in any manicure is the Top Coat! Chanel has a new LE GEL COAT Longwear Top Coat that extends the wear of LE VERNIS for up to 7 days and will provide a glossy, gel-like finish!
How does this work? The clear Top Coat is activated by natural light and bonds to the nail color for flexibility, strength and unprecedented wear.
Therefore, Chanel says there’s no need for the UV lamp or the damage to end up with a glossy, gel-like finish.

Christmas Red Stocking Nails

Christmas Stocking Nails

I love christmas stockings! I especially love surprising all my loved ones with red stockings filled with their favorite items. Stocking stuffers are my favorite items to shop for and I always make sure to include an item they can use either on their hands or feet 🙂 For example, some of my favorite stocking stuffers include nail polish, crystal nail files, cuticle oil, nail clippers and fast-drying top coat. I was inspired by all of my christmas stockings to create red stocking nails. Below is a quick and simple nail tutorial to add just a tiny bit of holiday cheer to your nails this season!
