Chanel Chic

Chanel Nail Art

I know I just used "Chic" two posts ago, but else can you describe Chanel.  Plus it sounds nice together.  When I think of Chanel, I always think of their classic black and white purses, so I wanted to emulate that look here.  I mixed black and white with some gold detailing and a tweed pattern that is sophisticated and classy like the brand.

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Wet n Wild - Black Crème
  • Wet n Wild - French White Crème
  • Orly - Luxe
Other Supplies:
  • Chanel metal gold confetti
  • Round white studs (two 2mm, and two 3mm)
  • Nail art brush
  • Base and top coats

This is a really easy mani to paint.  The only "art" painting is the tweed pattern, and that is just short lines.  To create this look:
  1. Apply a black base color to all nails.

  2. To create the tweed pattern, start with white polish and a nail art brush (a toothpick can be used as well).  Paint short vertical lines, and then cross each one with a short horizontal line.

  3. Repeat the process with gold polish in between the white markings made in the previous step.

  4. Apply the Chanel confetti to the middle of the index finger, with two 2mm white rounds studs on the top and bottom.
  5. Add a 3mm white round stud to the base of the pinky and thumb.
