Kicking off the first week of Spring with Chanel Verde Pastello! This beautiful pastel green nail polish is one of the four new colours from the new Chanel Napoli collection. While some may argue that this colour is not unique enough to purchase, I’m very excited that Chanel is back on track with bright fun colours and on that high note I’ve invested in the entire collection. So be prepared to see the other three new Chanel nail colours and designs that I created with them on SoNailicious within next week or so.
Now about the design… It’s been inspired by the Italian architecture. I’ve visited Naples (Napoli in Italian) a couple of years ago. I remember there’s a lot of buildings painted in pastel green, pink and peach with white outlines of windows and doors. So as soon as I saw Chanel Verde Pastello I had an idea for a nail art right away – it had to be paired with white!
To do this nail design I went for a shortcut. Instead of removing freshly painted manicure (that would be such a waste!) and starting all over with white, I simply added white Boho stickers (large triangles) and white Aztec nail stickers (small triangles and lines) over my nails. The result is this lovely Neapolitan manicure. Quick, easy and chic!
Mega-Quick Chanel 590Verde Pastello Review: if you’d like to know my opinion on Chanel Verde Pastello, I simply love it! Chanel has really stepped up with their new gel formula. Fully opaque in just 2 thin coats, this nail polish is highly pigmented and very fast drying. It is also quite long lasting, especially if you top it up with Chanel Le Gel top coat.
- Chanel 590 Verde Pastello – available now – USD $28 here and here; in Europe here; AUD $41 here.
- White Boho nail stickers – large triangles
- White Aztec nail stickers – small triangles and lines
- Essie Gel Setter top coat
- SN Striping nail art brush
So, there you have it, my thoughts on Chanel Verde Pastello and the Neapolitan Lace nail design. And, stay tuned for the next design with the second colour from the new Chanel Napoli collection! It will be something very different from this one…
Now, over to you!
How do you like the colour? Are you tempted to invest in Chanel Verde Pastello or do you already have some dupes in your collection?
