Every once in a while, a nail polish comes out and it starts a craze. Not surprisingly, this has happened with Chanel nail polishes quite a few times.
October 1994 - Became famous after Uma Thurman wore it in Pulp Fiction. Is part of Chanel's permanent collection to this day.
July 2006 - Sold out in 5 months. At the height of it's popularity a bottle sold for $140 on eBay. Is now part of Chanel's permanent collection. (Wonder how that person feels who paid $140?)
September 2009 - Was created to match a green shade in Chanel's necklaces. Sold out in under an hour in some stores.
January 2010 - Was first seen on the Chanel runway and became an immediate hit. Can still be found in some stores.
May 2010 - Beyonce wore this shade in one of her videos. The color sold out in 5 weeks.
July 2010 - One of the most unique shades Chanel has come out with. Already has a lot of celebrity fans including Rachel Bilson, a long time Chanel lover.
I went on a mad search recently for Particuliere and Paradoxal. It took going to 3 different stores, but I own them both now and I love them both. Chanel polishes are gorgeous and great quality.
What are your favorite shades?
